All Music's review, by Rick Anderson.
Drat. I was hoping they'd give this one to Thom Jurek.
I sort of doubt they would have gotten a favorable review from that dude. Just a hunch, though!

I don't have their debut album but I find myself more oriented towards Good Dog Bad Dog and Ohio more than anything else. I always though it was odd (but interesting!) that OTR worked with Gene Eugene on Eve. I rarely listen to the early albums though.
I don't think OTR have ever surpassed the opening trilogy of 'Til We See Faces, Patience and Eve. Although Ohio had some classic moments. Just find the more stripped back approach less interesting. That voice still haunts but there are no songs that would so far appear in my fav moments of this band career. Sorry!

I think Over the Rhine is basically the Pixar of music. They have a hard time releasing anything short of excellent.
