Let it sink in
Cory L. Schwent | Bloomsdale, MO United States | 04/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is awesome. I didn't like it at first, but after a while I realized this was a masterpiece. The duet with Emmylou Harris is probably the best duet I have heard in ages. If you like good songwriting and artistry, you will like this. But please don't judge it until you have listened 10 or 12 times"
The Best Guy Clark album
A. Butterfield | UK | 04/28/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Well, it's my favourite anyway.First thing that struck me was the sound: sharp as a knife, right in the room, yet rich and comfortable. The band are as tight as anything, and the whole record feels like it was was put together by somebody who knew how to get exactly what they had in their mind.Good songs too, all by Guy Clark of course. The title track is probably my favourite, and one of Guy's best ever songs. A very appealing combination of a great lyric, good chorus and neatly woven acoustic guitars.I like the blues songs on this album too. Like How'd You Get This Number and Picasso's Mandolin - the latter an interesting combination of off-the-wall lyrics and crystalline guitar work.The duet with Emmylou (I Don't Love You Much Do I) tops off a great album."
Tired of the same ole same?

"What a breath of fresh air Guy Clark brings to the music scene. This is an album that is comprised of songs that deal with real life in a very real way. From the cut Ramblin Jack and Mahan to the fresh I Don't Love You Much Do I to the haunting Madonna With Child this music cuts to very soul of the listener and makes you consider those most private parts of one's self. When the world gets you down and it seems nothing ever is gonna change put this album on get out the tools and build yourself a boat with your own two hands and remember it probably will be a fair curve from a noble plan. Thanks Guy Clark for reminding me that life is for living not observing."
