"Underated! Overlooked! Absolutely!
I wish all of Mr. Lowe's catalog would be re-released. Please!"
Don't overlook this one

""Pinker" is a great addition to any record collection. Yes, even a record collection that for some reason does not contain any Nick Lowe. As a fan for only about 4 years (and i've only been alive for 21. The first 17 were a bit dull - no Nick Lowe), it was not an album that cried "buy me", instead I went for things like the Impossible Bird. But "Pinker" is a reminder of his more rocky, tongue in cheek efforts, and the best of these by far. I don't know why more of these are included in the Best of/ live set. Lowe's recent transformation into some sort of introspective, romantic balladeer has won him new fans and critical appraisal aplenty. I hope these fans do not sneer at this 1980s (VERY 1980s - listen to Big Hair) album, that carries just as much personality as Dig My Mood etc."
Underrated Album From An Underrated Artist

"Nick Lowe, it seems, just can't make a bad album, despite what critics might tell you. Pinker made the Rolling Stone list of worst albums of all time, but I honestly don't think the critics bothered to listen to it. "Lover's Jamboree' is as jumpin and catchy as anything on LABOR OF LUST and `Black Black Lincoln Congenital' is just fabulous. As a founding member of Brinsley Schwartz and producer of Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe practically invented pub. His hooky roots rock is the definition of cool, and he is unafraid to acknowledge rock's debt to country music. Also worthy of note `Geisha Girl' and `Cry It Out'. Got it? Good!"
