Classy Songs
Gregory Morton | 06/21/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"My wife and I saw Marshall solo on June 11th and his self-review was that these were a bunch of "classy songs". And as excited as I was to see him live, he's half right, literally. Six of one and a half a dozen of the other on this album. The thing is, if you're a Marshall fan, he's probably touched your deepest sweet spot at some time in the past and therefore is the kind of underrated artist that you pull for without a second thought. I so much wish it were more than this, but it's only cuts 1, 2, 7, 8, 11 and 12 that go right to the next Best Of. As for the others, he's a great songwriter still in need of an equally great producer. Don't get me wrong, six new and great Marshall Crenshaw songs is a reason for celebration. But a great album this is not."
Marshall's Best Yet: A +

"Folks, it has been worth the wait...MC returns with 12 infectious Tunes that displays his diversity as one of the world's most accomplished pop musicians and talented guitarists. There are soaring pop songs, dark tales, blues, rockers, and a beautiful instrumental. Although I have an mp3 promo of this release, I am going to purchase the CD as I am guessing that the mp3 format is restricting the carefully-crafted sonics that MC wants to put across. In the best Crenshaw tradition, these tunes are addictive and satisfying. Thanks MC...I'm sure John Lennon would be proud.

Great Melodies!

"Maybe my favorite CD this year. The whole CD is solid, but I think "Sunday Blues", "Jaggedland", "Right on Time", "Passing Through", "Never Coming Down", and "Live and Learn" are my favorites. There's something about "Sunday Blues" - what a great melody - it's been in my head for days. I hope to see him in concert this year - would love to hear these songs live."
