Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mandy Patinkin belongs to the special breed of popular singer who is not content simply to dramatize the material he is handed. Like an obsessive Method actor, he incorporates song into his being and then releases it in an emotional eruption fraught with tension and personal catharsis... On "Experiment," which is in some ways the best of his three solo albums, Mr. Patinkin has arranged 18 popular standards into an extended suite that describes one man's troubled psychic journey.

-- Stephen Holden, The New York Times [1994]
