Bud Scoppa, Rolling Stone, 17 February 1972

THE DEBUT ALBUM of Nils Lofgren's trio, Grin, brilliantly closed the quartet of albums that had begun with the Neil Young/Crazy Horse collaboration, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, and had then progressed through Young's After the Gold Rush (the intense moodiness of which had been colored by Lofgren's gorgeously muted piano playing) and the Young-less Crazy Horse (on which Lofgren, with two of his songs, had been present).
