''Hawksley Workman manages to do something on his new album that so many other pop artists fail miserably at: write intelligent lyrics. The words of songs have completely been forgotten amidst the blips of techno-dance pop, and Workman brings us back to a day when musicians actually had something intelligent to say. He writes poignangtly about love, liquor and religion, each song making us believe that he is a really smart guy. Most of the songs on this album are really strong, the best being "Smoke, Baby" and "We Still Need a Song". On the musical side, none of these tracks will blow you away, but they are designed this way because it is the singing and the lyrics that rightfully take center stage on this album.''
