Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (No. 983, p.107) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...[J]oyful melodies on charming, fully realized tunes...the soundof a talented space cadet finding his bearings."

Entertainment Weekly (No. 840, p.86) - "...[T]he singer tackles tropicalia and '60s soul with aplomb, his boundless talents in full flight." - Grade: A-

Uncut (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[H]e further fleshes out the quavering song-sketches that appeared on his earlier releases. Drawing on harmony-laden '60s pop, Indian-tinged psychedelia and Brazilian Tropicalia for light and shade."

Magnet (p.53) - Ranked #17 in Magnet's "The 20 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[The] album encompasses the sort of breadth - from psychedelia to tropicalia to baroque pop - you thought died in the early '70s."

Magnet (p.87) - "[L]aced with splashy ballads, one of them sung in impeccable Spanish....Enthralling music that embraces you..."

The Wire (p.51) - "This is a lovely, beautifully recorded disc. The guitars are rich and clear....CRIPPLE CROW is a masterly record, and Banhart has a beautiful voice, full of teasing, warbling microtones."

Dirty Linen (p.58) - "[His] most accessible, and musically consistent album..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.60) - Ranked #28 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2005" - "An eclectic hippy opus with glitter on its face..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Veering between Spanish folk, strutting blues and campfire incantations, Banhart thins out the clotted intensity of his early work....CRIPPLE CROW is a mature work from a fascinating man."
