Learning to Flinch

Solo performer: Warren Zevon (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, piano, harmonica).
Warren Zevon was known for his intense, uncompromising approach to songwriting, but his hard-hitting tunes gain even more gravitas from the live, acoustic setting of LEARNING TO FLINCH. Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and piano, Zevon takes the audience on a journey through his catalog of dark, stirring songs. Such Zevon classics as "Excitable Boy" with its tongue-in-cheek tale of a psychopath on the loose, "Lawyers, Guns and Money," and the doomy anti-anthem "Play It All Night Long" feel all the more incisive in such an intimate setting, and Zevon's husky voice is even more emotive and communicative when it's not fighting for dominance over a full band.

Rolling Stone (8/19/93, p.76) - 3 Stars - Good - "...easily Zevon's sharpest since his SENTIMENTAL HYGIENE..."
Q (1/94, p.87) - Included in Q's list of 'The 50 Best Albums Of 1993' - "...LEARNING TO FLINCH is probably as strong an example possible of an artist successfully struggling with his art while unsuccessfully struggling with the charts..."
Q (5/93, p.101) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Warren Zevon unadorned, slashing at an acoustic guitar or banging the piano to deliver his vivid songs of boxing and booze, mad superstars and headless Thomson gunners...sardonic, self-dramatizing and funny..."
Musician (6/93, p.90) - "...If the truest test of a song is how good it sounds with just an acoustic guitar or piano, this is where Warren Zevon shows what his hits are made of..."
