Watching the River Run

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
The absence of Jim Messina from the music scene for the better part of the 1980s and '90s has been a real loss for fans of country-rock, which makes his return a matter for celebration.

Songs like "Child's Claim to Fame" and "Kind Woman" from Buffalo Springfield, "You Better Think Twice" from Poco, and "Angry Eyes" and "Your Mama Don't Dance" from Loggins & Messina have aged well, and Messina, whose extensive talents always included a gift for inventive arrangements, gives them assured, direct performances that emphasize their consistency. Of the three new songs, "Follow Your Dreams" is an encouraging philosophical statement, "Whispering Waters" a tour de force with a characteristically ambitious instrumental interlude, and "Mexican Minutes" a pleasant throwaway.
