Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (p.117) - "It's McMurtry's brilliant character sketches that really shine -- starting with the hilarious, poignant title track..." -- Grade: A-

Dirty Linen (p.77) - "JUST US KIDS screams with political tension. McMurtry speaks out against corporate greed and war profiteering and paints a world of drug addicts, murderers, and corrupt politicians."

Q (Magazine) (p.140) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e's getting better with age....His band, The Heartless Bastards, could hold their own in the rowdiest barroom."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.105) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e's never less than compelling as he takes swipes at the greed of corporations and the conflict in Iraq or conjures up a kind of aural road movie for long-term losers..."

Blender (Magazine) (p.77) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Muscularly arranged with bongolated beats, psychedelic swamp guitars, boogie-woogie pine top and snowballing chorus hooks.....You'd be hard-pressed to find a more hard-boiled depiction of hardscrabble '00s life on the edge of recession..."

Paste (magazine) (p.57) - "[I]t's the ache of 'Ruby and Carlos' that reveals McMurtry's sensitive brilliance as a chronicler of quiet desperation..."
