High and Dry
Billboard, March 23, 1996

A modern rock hit for the past three months, "High And Dry" is ripe for pop playlists, as its quiet intensity and pleading melody make it an irresistible choice for programmers wanting to add a little understated class to the mix. "High And Dry" is indicative of the intelligence, heart, and taste of the band's sublime sophomore album, "The Bends," and here it comes with three fine nonalbum tracks and a live cut.
