Entertainment Reviews:

Q (Magazine) - p.95
4 stars out of 5 -- "Each of the 11 new songs on BOTTOM OF THE WORLD twinkles mournfully, chamber-country meditations which blend the playful and the sinister in his patented fantasia set in the US-Mexico borderlands."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.92
3 stars out of 5 -- "The 11 loosely-themed songs on the maverick, mordant Texan singer-songwriter's first album in 14 years are spare, poignant, dark and dry."

For his first studio album in over 14 years, alt-country maverick Terry Allen picks right up where he left off, and takes a sparse, spacious approach to his songwriting on Bottom of the World. The usual bass and percussion backing tracks are substituted for cello and fiddle, courtesy of fellow Lubbockites Lloyd Maines and Richard Bowden. Along with his direct lyrical style, these gentler aspects help shape the album into an intimate listening experience.
