"Eschewing the bloated production, he keeps it simple — just voice and guitar, with other instruments as color, not competition. With the exception of the heavy, bluesed-out "Queen of the Hour," Bailey doesn't bellow much here, but is no less effective a vocalist. The standout is the single, "Do They Come From You": a circling piano underpinned by strings and Bailey's plaintive wail. Other tracks delve into bitter ironies, self-deprecation and inner torment." [Jack Rabid]
"...an album which seriously ranks alongside the best of Seventies Dylan, and if it was the only record he'd ever made, would still have established Bailey amongst the greatest songwriters of the age." [Dave Thompson]
