    Spin (5/92, p.16) - "...a triumphant return with a fifth heaping hamper of catchy, crafty guitar-pop ditties via [Dando's] wonderful Lemonheads..."
    Q (12/99, p.74) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."
    Q (1/93) - p.72) - Included in Q's list of the 50 Best Albums Of 1992.
    Uncut (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[L]istening to IT'S A SHAME ABOUT RAY now, what's most striking is an emotional frailty at the heart of these swift and memorable little songs..."
    Magnet (p.100) - "RAY still sounds remarkably fresh, retaining its bouncy, subdued edge with a sense of humor the Lemonheads' peers painfully lacked."
    Reflex (11/10/92, p.72) - "...catchy...it would be a shame not to buy RAY..." Option (Nov.-Dec./92, p.124) - "...altogether more assured...thanks to some unabashedly great songs like the title tune, this should prove wildly popular..."
    Q (Magazine) (p.148) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[C]areworn guitar pop, equally grounded in punk and Gram Parsons, a fusion that found its near-perfect embodiment on 1992's IT'S A SHAME ABOUT RAY."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.120) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he whole thing was washed in a sweet, dopey, lazy sunniness that gave warmth to everything it touched..."
    Paste (magazine) (p.73) - "Its sugary, lilting melodies and the boy/girl harmonies of frontman Evan Dando and then-bassist Juliana Hatfield were unexpected..."
    Pitchfork (Website) - "Almost 16 years after its initial release, Dando's slacker pop sounds almost Zen. Those short songs now seem concise and even disciplined. What was once mopey now plays as something much more complex and contradictory: exuberant pop melancholy."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is an interesting juncture indeed, charming in its sunny naivety."

    Notes

    Lemonheads: Evan Dando (vocals, guitar); Juliana Hatfield (bass, background vocals); David Ryan (drums).
    Recorded at Cherokee Studios, Los Angeles, California.
    This edition of IT'S A SHAME ABOUT RAY contains the extra song "Mrs. Robinson," a cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic, which was not on the original release.
    The Lemonheads: Evan Dando (vocals); Juliana Hatfield (bass guitar, background vocals); David Ryan (drums).
    The band's leader Evan Dando received an immense amount of media coverage between this and their next album, COME ON FEEL THE LEMONHEADS. The press saw another self-destructive rock 'n' roller in the making and hounded him about his drug habit. This album, however, is a delight and has the same feel as a Big Star record, or the rolling melody of the early Byrds, but much more sloppy and loose. Dando is a fine songwriter and the first 12 songs on this record feel like one great track. The unlucky 13th track is Paul Simon's "Mrs Robinson", which you will either love or hate.
