Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (3/14/03, p.66) - "...These country-rock abstractionists make songs full of Sergio Leone set pieces and Mexicali blues, with random bursts of jazz swagger...and pop bliss..." - Rating: B+

Q (01/01/04, p.75) - Ranked #48 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums of 2003" - "This is another diverse collection, with Latin shuffles, slow waltzes and would-be spaghetti western soundtracks all queuing up for a turn in the spotlight."

Uncut (01/04, pp.84-7) - Ranked #49 in Uncut's "Albums Of The Year 2003"

Uncut (3/03, p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Calexico transports you to a place where the sun's hot enough to bake bricks and there are always mangy dogs in the shade....Saddle up, it's showtime..."

Magnet (4/03, p.85) - "...It's all drunkenly cinematic, as prickly as cactus and smart as hell, a fly-splattered vista of tumbling tumbleweeds and wide-open spaces..."

The Wire (2/03, p.59) - "...They create a space for the listener to appreciate the music's constituent parts at the same time as measuring its overall impact....Their instrumentals run from the briefest of acoustic interludes to beautifully arranged soundtracks..."

Q (Magazine) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] set of succinct, evocative songs."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hey almost found a pop voice, albeit one with mariachi horns, snaking Latin beats and an occasional hint of smoky jazz."

Mojo (Publisher) (01/01/04, p.56) - Ranked #35 in Mojo's "The Best of 2003"

Mojo (Publisher) (3/03, p.98) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...The music is often sensuous and sparkly....Seductive, stirring songs about crushed hope and the corruption of beauty and some of their most ambitious arrangements make this their most fully-realised and accomplished album yet..."
