“Scorching” – Rolling Stone
“In 2018, there may be no artist more important to the genre than Alejandro Escovedo” – NO DEPRESSION
“Think Townes Van Zandt and Iggy Pop teaming up for a film noir soundtrack” – Billboard
“The Crossing’ dips with emotional highs and contemplative lows, just like the best late-night conversations over tea or single malts…..[Escovedo’s] finest recorded work yet.” – NPR Music
“Escovedo aspires to activate the body and the soul on his new record, and with a searing combination of imagination and gusto, manages to succeed…he has not only created an entertaining work, but a tribute to the resistance and combative artistry necessary to maintain the democratic spirit.“ – Salon
“The Crossing” has an eclectic reach echoing the best efforts of Los Lobos, blending traditional Mexican sounds, orchestral pop, sizzling boogie noise, and a host of other flavors into one exciting whole…this relentlessly inventive album is a memorable trip.” – Mother Jones
“One of the most passionate, relevant, politically charged and personal projects [Escovedo] has released in a career pushing 40 years.” – American Songwriter
