AllMusic Review by

Greg Brown's latest release is somber and streetwise with more political undertones than his previous CDs. The simple 1964 "Dodge" is a most powerful song about the impending destruction of faith in America after the Kennedy assassination; and it does not even mention the event. Production is simple and in a few cases one would have liked to hear a bit more thought given to the instrumental arrangement, but still this is a fine stripped-to-the-bone songwriter album by one of the premiere contemporary writers.
