Spin - p.100

Uncut - p.107
4 stars out of 5 -- "Lowe has transported himself to Memphis and Nashville to create a set of songs reminiscent of such dignitaries as Al Green, Joe South, Glen Campbell and possibly even Dean Martin."
CMJ - p.46
"[H]is raspy voice is complemented perfectly with soulful horns, country twang and a bit of good ol' fashioned rockabilly."
Dirty Linen - p.76
"In short, he's found a way to orchestrate a carefully crafted version of Americana that's lush while still sounding simple..."

Those who last checked in with U.K. pub-rock hero Nick Lowe back when he was turning out breathless power-pop gems like "Heart of the City" and "Cruel To Be Kind" may be shocked at the stylistic contrast of AT MY AGE. However, anyone who's been following his career since the 1990s knows that his latter-day work revolves around a sharply constructed amalgam of soul, country, and pop/jazz standards, delivered with an understated, slow-burn feel. That's the order of the day on this album, and from the sardonic "I Trained Her To Love Me" to the uncharacteristically optimistic "Hope For Us All," Lowe is in top form, pausing in the creation of perfectly crafted tunes only to put a new gleam on Charlie Feather's rockabilly nugget, "A Man in Love."
