Critical reception [ edit ]
AllMusic critic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote of the album "On the surface, it may seem like a departure for Ferry, but in the end, it's entirely of a piece with his body of work. True, it may not be a major album in the scheme of things, but it's easy to be seduced by its casual elegance." And reviewing for [6 ] The A.V. Club critic, Keith Phipps wrote of the album "the results are both predictable and thrilling, musically tasteful but as emotionally raw as good manners will allow." [7 ]
