About this item

Rolling Stone (5/18/95, p.90) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...[ALL THAT MAY DO MY RHYME] is a brilliant trip through a variety of pop-music genres, encompassing everything from strummy country folk to Buddy Holly-esque rock & roll to blues stomp..."
Spin (4/95, pp.200-01) - 7 - Recommended - "...A poignant, even tasteful work befitting a sweet, sensitive man....The record focuses exactly where it should: on his songs' easy swing and...Erickson's for-the-ages wail of a rock'n'roll throat, ghostly and gorgeous and scary and soulful all at once..."
Q (3/95, pp.96-97) - 3 Stars - Good - "...contrary to Erickson's past work's often off-putting fire brimstone and LSD cocktails, [ALL THAT MAY DO MY RHYME] is reminiscent of nothing so much as The Byrds circa "Chimes Of Freedom," with Erickson, now 47, as a creepier Roger McGuinn..."
Option (7-8/95, p.104) - "...Erickson's song style is a startling echo of fellow Texan Buddy Holly, with the clean melody lines, chipper electric guitars, and simple rhythm section that made rock'n'roll worth living for in 1957..."
NME (Magazine) (2/18/95, p.49) - 6 - Good - "...there are moments--the desperately sad single 'We Are Never Talking,' the noise of 'The Haunt'; 'Don't Slander Me,' where you will believe a 50-year-old man can sound like Kurt Cobain--when he sounds as vital as Neil Young, only cooler..."
