Rolling Stone - 8/25/94, p.90
3.5 Stars - Good - "...YEARS is a passionate collection of gospel, soul, country and blues songs about mortality, perserverance and transcendence that are given credence by the artist's own experiences as an ex-convict and street singer..."

1994 found Ted Hawkins breaking through to his largest audience yet with the release of THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS, Hawkins' first album for a major label. Sadly, on New Year's Day 1995 he succumbed to a massive stroke, leaving this record as his final offering. The album is every bit the equal of his remarkable WATCH YOUR STEP and HAPPY HOUR.
Hawkins is supported by subtle and evocative accompaniment-churchly organ here, a steel guitar there-and the players are understated and perfectly suited to the material. The few covers include "There Stands The Glass," a stirring song that often opened Hawkins' concerts, Jesse Winchester's "Biloxi," and John Fogerty's "Long As I Can See the Light." Ted Hawkins was a big man with a big voice, and the spiritual and emotional shadows he cast here will linger for at least the next hundred years.
