"BBJR amplifies his experimental buzz and sharpens his blues acumen on I Did What I could...He speaks loudly and clearly through soft, open interludes, and lets free range counterlines overrun a country feel. This is Americana on broad shoulders, which is harsh enough to speak to jazz and noise, and authentic to that country-blues base. I've previously written that BBJR will tear the world to pieces with his wide-open atmospheric country record, but the truth is that this is less than a tear: Bucko carefully places each space, handing his listener a record that is as challenging and optimistic, or as mournful and honest as each Americana border." - Nicholas Zettel (Decoder)
