Grant Lee Buffalo: Copperopolis (Slash/All formats)

Dele Fadele, New Musical Express, 1 June 1996

SOME MIGHT fiddle while America burns. Grant Lee Phillips, however, has seen the writing on the wall. A vague premonition of disaster troubles him very deeply indeed. So he gathers up his remorse, polishes his anger, dusts down some vague liberalism, recollects his historical savvy, manufactures some compassion, and, along with Paul Kimble and Joey Peters, makes Grant Lee Buffalo's third LP the least boring of their canon.

Total word count of piece: 353
