Rolling Stone (4/4/91) - Regarding the track `Ashokan Farewell' "...a quintessentially American lament...has all the bittersweet tragedy and uplift contained in the Civil War...it speaks directly to the heart."

Entertainment Weekly (1/21/91) - A "`Ashokan Farewell' is tender, haunting, and filled with delicate melodic twists...a tune of such runaway gorgeousness."

Time Magazine (2/4/91) - "The haunting tune `Ashokan Farewell'...was inspired by 19th century Scottish laments...there is a fair chance that this composition may become somethig of a classic."
