Editorial Reviews:
Entertainment Weekly (9/28/01, p.74) - "...While the Goners are consummate roots-rock pros, this reencounter is mere Hiatt Lite albeit highly listenable..." - Rating: B- Q (10/01, p.122) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A rollicking bar band set that blends characteristicly picaresque rockers with tender ballads..." No Depression (9-10/01, pp.132-3) - "...A greasy, swampy roadhouse party..."
