Q (p.134) - 4 stars out of 5 - "One of the most insightful country writers of the '70s..." Uncut (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[H]e brought an outsider's perspective to Music City's staid conservatism that drew from the confessional folk of Fred Neil and the freewheelin' narrative of Dylan." Mojo (Publisher) (2/04, p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[G]athering the best of his '70s solo sides and making a persuasive case for him as one of country's great storytellers."
