And the Horse You Rode in On

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tomas Mureika
As if in response to the hard edge of Speedboats for Breakfast, James Reyne assembled some of his best catalog selections for acoustic reworkings on And the Horse You Rode in On. The songs are produced in such a way as to spotlight his inimitable voice. Most of the songs are done strictly acoustically -- with just Reyne and a guitar -- though some are given different arrangements ("One More River" has been given an almost reggae beat, while "Any Day Above Ground" has an ironically funereal dirge about it).
