“...resonates with the quizzical poignancy of midlife survival while still harkening his delectably deranged 'Excitable Boy' heyday.”
- Beth Johnson, Entertainment Weekly
“It's Zevon's charm to match his grim attitude to some of the prettiest tunes around. The prettiness stresses the sincerity of his work - but the rough lyrics ensure that it doesn't go too far.”
-Jim Farber, NY Daily News
“There is something redemptive about Zevon's grumpy, mordant view of the world. He may not be able to hit the high notes, but his songs are clever, burnished gems. Besides, you can't deny the truth of the title song.” - People Magazine
“Elegantly played music and eloquently sung lyrics are the hallmarks of this no-risk disc.” - Dan Aquilante, NY Post
Following a decade of stagnation and waning interest, legendary singer-songwriter Warren Zevon, who masked his soft-side with his sarcastic, lyrical prose, entered the new millennium with his acclaimed 10th studio album Life'll Kill Ya. Though the album predated Zevon's fatal cancer diagnosis by two years, its title track, as well as standout cuts like "My Shit's Fucked Up" and "Don't Let Us Get Sick," brought the album critical praise as a "mournful lament on the aging process and the inevitable decay that accompanies it."
Available now for the first time on vinyl, and limited to 1000 copies, Ship To Shore PhonoCo's 20th anniversary reissue of Life'll Kill Ya features brand-new, expanded liner notes and never-before-seen photos from Zevon's son, Jordan, Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), as well as collaborator Jorge Calderón.
