  2. 8.0 |   The Music

    His first set a high bar with its songs of underground heroes and misfits and now he's taken that momentum and set one dizzying and rambunctious musical snowball in motion

  3. 8.0 |   Record Collector

    While that rambunctious revelry can sometimes seem too breathless for its own good, there’s a live-recorded vigour to the high-powered heartaches

  4. 7.5 |   Earbuddy

    This should translate to one hell of a live show where Craft leaves everything on stage as the audience watches in disbelief. Hell, he does it on this album

  6. 6.0 |   Q

    It's a rollicking 40-minute ride. Print edition only

  7. 6.0 |   Uncut

    There's a country edge to songs like "Slick Delta Queen," "Exile Rag" and the surprisingly sweet "Bridge City Rose," the latter making a nice break from the self-centred tone of "Fake Magic Angel" and the Lou Reed-bitterness of "Gold Calf Moan." Print edition only

  8. 6.0 |   Mojo

    There are moments when Craft's melodies don't punch quite so hard as his striking, road-less-trodden imagery. Print edition only

  9. 4.1 |   Pitchfork

    Full of femme fatales and other clichés dredged from a half-century of classic rock
