  • Veteran folksinger John Prine followed up his Grammy winning THE MISSING YEARS with the nearly-as-winning LOST DOGS AND MIXED BLESSINGS. Keeping Tom Petty and Heartbreakers' Howie Epstein in the producer's chair, Prine assembled a cast of similarly seasoned pros to lend a hand (fellow Heartbreaker Benmont Tench, Marianne Faithful, and Waddy Wachtel.) Perhaps bolstered by his recent commercial recognition, Prine beefed up the sound considerably with fuller band arrangements. While the augmented sound provides considerably more texture, the level of intimacy is somewhat diminished as a result.
  • Prine nonetheless comes up aces in more than a few places. The full-blown rock feel of "We Are The Lonely" chronicles the inherent lunacy of personal ads in a litany of absurd couplets. The album's crowning achievement is the stunning "Lake Marie," which features the most outwardly emotive vocals of his career. Besides, nobody else but Prine could use the chorus of "Louie Louie" as a metaphor for the dissolution of a relationship.
Professional Reviews
Spin (8/95, p.95) - 6 - Reasonably Good - "...Prine...seems worried that the fate of the lonely oldtimers in his classic `Hello In There' is creeping up on him....[his] nursery-rhyme stream-of-consciousness seems not like a sideways engagement, but an evasion--he's the funny guy who can't stop spouting one-liners even as his...love is walking out the door..."

Entertainment Weekly (5/5/95, p.70) - "...Prine can still pull heartstrings better than anyone..." - Rating: B

Q (10/95, p.124) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Prine's still doing his best..."

Sing Out! (8-10/95, pp.149-150) - "...his nearly disintegrated voice sounds better than it has in a while. His deceptively simple lyrics, from the king of masculine rhymes, hit hard..."

New York Times (Publisher) (1/6/96, p.C16) - Included on Neil Strauss' list of the Top 10 Albums of `95 - "...hard-won insights, quick wit and a rasping voice always on the edge of a laugh or a tear..."
