01/01/1994 TOP magazine

'Has to be one of the top ten records of 1994' Neville Hadsley,

 

01/01/1994 Ben Watson, Rubberneck magazine

'At first Entertainment USA is pleasant but curiously flat, pattering on with its basic formats, almost like a Hank Crawford of Boots Randolph album. However, Jenkins injects his anglo-MOR with two lethal spikes: absolutely bravura guitar, and a highly developed awareness of the socio-politico implications of schlock. You can sit around and ponder these musings on Reagan, Manson, Elvis, etc. for hours. In other words, Jenkins has cunningly confected the ideal domestic soundtrack: Country enough to make the average ambient snob turn purple, it's also great dinner-party/cannabis music - just as everyone's starting to get out of it, bizarre insights and brilliant guitar vault out of the subliminal. Sublime.'

 

01/01/1994 Martin Longley, Birmingham What's On

'Highly wreckommended!'
