Nils Lofgren: Cry Tough (A&M) 37 min. *****

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 27 March 1976

RELAX. THIS kid is hot stuff. Nils Lofgren has not let us down. Cry Tough is the best rock 'n roll album since Nils Lofgren. He looks like an elegantly wasted Keith Richard on the back cover. He plays like a rhythmically possessed Keith Richard on the inside. Cry Tough is brilliant.
