We've removed the most flattering excerpts from the following reviews of UNSWEETENED for your reading pleasure:

Patton Oswalt: "A CD that truly lives up to its title: this is an all-or-nothing recording of a single show. Lord's material has been stripped of every unnecessary pause, breath and syllable. Halfway through he flattens a drunk female heckler without mussing his pompadour or punchline. It almost makes you believe in justice. For a moment."

Splendid E-zine Review: "(Carrett) specializes in sarcastic, rapid fire jokes, and has no qualms with throwing barbs at the audience... I laughed out loud many times -- a surprising admission from this jaded listener."

Evil Sponge E-zine Review: Carrett has made an art of taking what could be an awkward moment with a heckler or a joke that fell flat, making it even more awkward, then making it funny. I found myself laughing at failed-joke comebacks such as, ‘It is SO nice to be in town for the quick-to-judge festival.’”

Amplifier Magazine: (Carrett) excels in the one-liner like an old-school comic, yet he weaves them together to effortlessly segue between themes and skillfully reprise previous jokes… …irreverent, self-effacing under a cool exterior, and quite a ways out in left field.”

Tastes Like Chicken Magazine Review: “Looking and listening to Lord Carrett answers that burning question that lives deep down inside us: What would have happened if Milton Berle were reincarnated as the fourth member of The Stray Cats. Carrett keeps the crowd in his hand by dishing out jokes, not anecdotes. If you don’t like the one he just told, keep listening. You’ll love the next one.”

Peter Case (of the Plimsouls) "This cat is FUNNY! Very funny...”

Chucklemonkey Magazine: 'Unsweetened', refers to the fact that the album production has included absolutely NO laugh track, no 'juicing', and no clever editing to remove slow spots or bad jokes. It's probably a good idea that he mentions it, too... because you'd never be able to tell, judging by the audience reaction. Lord's rapid-fire, 'quick-joke' style and happy-go-lucky attitude are perfect for today's shortened attention spans"

"His 'Unsweetened' CD was recorded live, in one take of one show, without any editing or laugh-track manipulations, and it shows why he's so good at what he does. A joke that doesn't work merely becomes a set up for one that does." Jim Carnes (from a "Best Bet" in The Sacramento Bee)
