Robbie Fulks wrote that on the album, "The music is played with hearts out and dicks in, to coin a phrase that I sincerely hope does not catch on." Peter Gerstenzang of City Pages called the album "another stunning collection brimming with both indelible melodies and wonderfully seedy characters."

This Perfect World

This Perfect World is the third album by singer-songwriter …
This Perfect World is the third album by singer-songwriter Freedy Johnston. It was released in 1994 on Elektra Records. It is an album steeped in regret and loss. The narrator of "Across the Avenue" is unable to get past the memory of seeing his lover killed in a pedestrian accident. In "Two Lovers Stop," a young couple commit suicide rather than let themselves be ripped away from each other. The title track concerns a dying old man returning to apologize to his estranged daughter for unspecified past misdeeds. Among the other songs, "Evie's Tears" apparently refers to sexual abuse (evidently by a priest), and "Dolores" is based on Nabokov's Lolita. Despite the preponderance of dark subject matter, the album has a jaunty feel as Johnston demonstrates an ability to craft winning pop melodies.
