AllMusic/Mark Deming wrote: “Warren Zevon was a ten-year music industry
veteran who had written songs for the Turtles, backed up Phil Everly, done years
of session work, and been befriended by Jackson Brown… The songs here possessed
a steely intelligence, a winning wit, and an unusually sophisticated melodic sense, it
was the album that confirmed he was a major talent, and it remains a black-hearted
pop delight.” Score: 4.5/5.
Warren Zevon: “To me, the message of my songs, of all songs, is “enjoy life.”
My message as a person who evidently doesn’t have much more planned is
the same. It’s the only message I ever thought art had any business having.”
