Robyn's not usually this boring, but much of this album just doesn't go anywhere interesting, lyrically or musically.
Don't kid yourself, this is, conceptually, beyond music to carry you from one place to another, it's music to carry you from one stage in your life to the next.
Overall this is great songwriting, and Robyn Hitchcock not only has a charismatic and expressive voice, he has an excellent sense of humor.
Tired and lacking.
Feels like he had nothing to say but had a record due. A few moments here and there but overall lacks any memorable tunes. Read more

a remarkable artist, mr hitchcock, but this disc isn't his best--no matter! it's still really really good: melodic, funny, sad, profound, silly, bouncy, deep, English, syd... Read morePublished on October 17, 2000
When I first bought the album, I played it once and put it away with the comment, "enh."
A couple of months later, a co-worker couldn't get Mexican God out of her... Read more
3 stars for the slightly-less-than-half of it which can stand alongside Robyn's most enduring work; minus 2 stars for the rest, which is as schlocky and as rife with unnecessary... Read morePublished on April 5, 2000 by Philip Welsh
I love Robyn Hitchcock. But this effort just sounds lazy to me. "Mexican God" is great - strong lyrics, great imagery, neat production - classic Robyn. Read morePublished on February 25, 2000 by The Devil's Coachman
