A Meaningful Work of Art
Aaron Gangross | Here and There | 01/19/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I met Roky on Halloween 1996 in a grocery store in Austin, Texas, and got to chat with him (and the person assisting him) for a couple minutes. Not surprisingly, no one else had a clue as to who he was. I did, having bought this CD just a few months earlier. It was entirely unlike anything I expected. Indeed, the new recordings do sound like Buddy Holly, although there are also a few older recordings mixed in, that are quite different. The work is actually fairly touching, and gives the listener the impression of listening to a battle-scarred soldier of life working out his demons. You also get the impression that he's won the battle...the same feeling I had after meeting him."
Heir to buddy holly
red angus | canada | 04/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Everything by this man is gold. I know of few other artists who are able to speak from the heart in this way. A miracle that this album exists at all. But it does and it shares very few similarities with his earlier solo work or his work with the elevators. To me it is every bit as great. Roky shows himself to be the true texas heir to Budddy Holly's crown. I could go on, but I have to go to away."
Tortured soul for the psychedlic age
Mark D. Mayfield | Phoenix AZ | 05/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is a real treat. It's so nice to see that Henry Rollins is there to help Roky put out new music. So much much hurt...listen to 'You Don't Love Me Yet' and you'll understand. Roky's music IS an aquired taste, but once you get into his previous band the 13th Floor Elevators,Explosives etc, you'll really enjoy it. This album is what Dylan would've sounded like if he'd taken too much acid. Great stuff. I've liked this guy's music since I was a kid and you will too."
