We didn't know how much we'd been missing the golden strains of the Byrds, the Beach Boys, and CSNY until we put this CD in the player and rode the musical waves until their last dying fall.
"Bear-hug harmonies envelop ringing guitars and strings.... The Jayhawks made their mix a signature long ago; though they stretch out with surprising hooks, the tunes are branded like calves—soaring singalongs full of bad weather, emotional and meteorological. They're Minnesotan to the bone."—Rolling Stone
"Writing together melds [Mark] Olson's country tendencies with [Gary] Louris's rockier leanings.... 'She Walks in So Many Ways' sounds like a lost Byrds outtake, and it's not hard to think the line that closes its chorus—'All things are just as they should be'—looks to the pair's renewed relationship. 'High Water Blues' somehow makes a success of matching a motorik rhythm to country rock; 'Black-Eyed Susan' is one of those sprawling ballads that made the group's name."—Guardian
"A richly rewarding example of what the Jayhawks do better than anyone, and a potent reminder that they're one of the finest American bands of their time."—All Music Guide
