“When Gram Parsons said “I dream of . . . Cosmic American Music,” here’s what he was talking about.”

“On first listen, your ear will likely be drawn to Anderson’s drastic re-imagination of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” as a lazy banjo tune. Spend some time with the rest of the album, however, and you’ll find plenty to like in his original work as well.”

“Overall, Magnolia Road is a brilliant character study, a kind of musical version of a Tim Burton movie. It’s filled with dark characters and bleak landscapes; yet in the end the protagonist isn’t really unhappy. Life has its moments, you move on, and what’s so bad about that anyway.”
