AllMusic Review by

The A-side of Let Go of My Beautiful Balloon is similar to Tobin Sprout's Demos and Outtakes reissue and even better, in that it's more of Sprout alone, playing everything, and delivering a ridiculously finished, sounds-too-easy, six-minute acoustic pop rhinestone with sweet self-harmonies. This side's a must. The lesser B-side, "Shirley the Rainbow," is more of the same, only barely making use of a strong band including Guided by Voices' Jim Macpherson on drums and Eyesinweasel's Nick Kizirnis on second guitar.
