Complete Guide has "cult record" written all over it. There's practically no information out there about Broughton and in this regard the record seems somewhat akin to the anonymity of Palace Brothers’ 1993 debut record, There is No-One What Will Care For You. I hope this one captures the imagination of more people out there, since it has the ability to both enchant and inspire. Broughton seems to be brimming with talent, and I can’t wait to hear what he'll be able to achieve with a studio and another batch of songs of this caliber. In the meantime, The Complete Guide to Insufficiency stands as one hell of a debut, and easily one of the finest records of 2005.'
