If the CD had a few more jammin' tracks like the first 2 & titletrack, this would be another absolute par-excellant album. A few other catchy songs and some growers keep getting to me. Overall this CD is almost as tight as Fight For Your Mind. I'd never trade this CD though, now that I've spun it 5 times or so, if that tells you anything

"cant say that i'm a fan of the country-folksy-bluesy-semi-acoustic-lowlevel-rock-and-soul genre... but this aint bad... nothing that feels prententious or forced... or even 'cute'... just honest... and i appreciate that type of music regardless to the form it takes on.want to shake your moneymaker in the club? or rattle the concrete as you blow out your brand new stereo speakers???then THIS aint gonna be the album you do it to...but if you already lean toward the more eclectic/eccentric side of musical expression, then hey: get this and knock yourself out!"

"Execellent album. Ben Harper incorporates many different styles of music and does it well. Overall the album is fairly spiritual in content without being over the top. I cant tell you how much I love this album. In the top 20 of albums from the Nineties."
Soulful & moving

"An album which expresses Harper's traditional genuflection to spirituality and concern for the less-than-fortunate. With "Homeless Child" and "Widow of a Living Man" (one of my favorite songs by him), Harper exhibits once again his uncanny ability of peering into the world of the downtrodden and revealing its anguish w/grace. While perhaps his most melancholy release, it's beautifully orchestrated, and like the majority of his work, it's an album that, thematically, speaks to those who are ahead of the status quo."
