    There is a pleasing wide scope to his source material. [Mar 2019, p.116]

    Dando remains a sensitive, nuanced interpreter and, as produced by Matthew Cullen, the Lemonheads sound amiable and charming: the best college bar band you could imagine stumbling upon on a Saturday afternoon.

    Breezy and agreeable though it all is, it mostly reminds how nice it would be to hear something new of The Lemonheads' own. [Mar 2019, p.30]

    There is room in the world for such quaint records as these, but the world doesn't need another version of the Eagles' Take It Easy. [Mar 2019, p.91]
  5. 60
    Varshons II canters along as a casual grab-bag of songs plucked from largely obscure locations. Whilst the results are mixed, there’s no doubt that Dando hasn’t fully lost the reinterpretative knack that previously served him so well on likes of Suzanne Vega’s “Luka” or Mike Nesmith’s “Different Drum”.

    There's a DIY feel and bouts of slacker tomfoolery to Varshons 2. [Mar 2019, p.88]

    Listening to Varshons 2 is like catching up with a childhood friend--on surface level its pleasant, but as the conversation persists, the friendly emptiness becomes too painful to bear.
