Reviews:

Purists will say that the only female voice that should accompany John Doe's is Exene Cervenka's. But since X is playing shows again, we guess it's OK that A Year in the Wilderness features the voices of Aimee Mann, Jill Sobule and Kathleen Edwards. Doe has said that recording in the winter "makes you want to close down and pull inside," and Wilderness is reported to be darker and more stripped-down than any of his previous solo LPs.
