AllMusic Review by

Like its predecessor Cool Friction, Looking for Zim shows Tony Cox' impressive abilities on the steel string guitar combined with stirring musical ideas. Whereas Cool Friction was a purely instrumental effort, Cox added the vocal support of Wendy Oldfield, a South African pop singer, and Wambali Mkandawire, a songwriter from Malawi (for whose albums Cox had acted as a producer in the past). With these new nuances, he made sure he didn't just follow trodden paths of just replicating his old ideas, but offered new developments on a genuinely enjoyable record.
