"Slow Train Coming & Oh Mercy were good/very good- but this was his best since Blood on the Tracks. Love & Theft is even better I think: Standing in the Doorway, Not Dark Yet, Love Sick, Cold Irons..."
"The return of the great John Frusciante & some close calls offered up this treat/career peak, some of which was influenced by The Cure's Carnage Visors!!!!!!: Scar Tissue, Otherside, Porcelain, Parall"
"Bedtime Stories, Erotica etc seemed to point to the dwindling of Lady Madonna. Here William Orbit saved the day & produced her best LP. Kind of her Berlin Trilogy with Music & A/Life (if both Lodger)"
"post-MMM, he had been hit & miss - though The Bells and The Blue Mask hit for me too! NY kickstarted a solid return to form: Dirty Blvd, Beginning of a Great Adventure, Romeo Had Juliette, Strawman..."
