"Only a year and a half after releasing What Kind of World, Benson returns with another well-crafted collection of songs. Given its fragmented compilation of new singles with older reworked tracks, You Were Right fits together impressively well. These are meaningful, well-written songs and they further solidify Benson’s unique pop/folk blend and quiet stronghold as a talented American singer-songwriter."

"More of a well-crafted showcase for Benson's always strong tunes than a greatest-hits collection, You Were Right feels like a proper album and meets the same high bar set by his previous work. At points it even surpasses previous efforts, perhaps the all-consuming pressure of making an album being alleviated by focusing on making singles one hit at a time."
"Brendan Benson is an admirable musical chameleon. A Woody Allen-esque Zelig, if you will. Unlike Allen’s 1983 cinematic main character, however, Benson doesn’t sacrifice individuality to be liked; he just wears many hats well." That's pretty cool. Check out the entire review HERE.
