AllMusic Review by

The second volume of Razor & Tie's In Their Own Words series features songwriters as diverse as William Bell, Billy Bragg, Difford & Tilbrook, Suzanne Vega, John Cale, General Johnson, and David Johansen, playing acoustic versions of their songs and telling tales of how they compose. For anyone interested in the art of songcraft, it's an essential purchase --- the stories are fascinating and insightful, while the music is stripped-down to its essence, revealing how well-written the songs are.
