  1. This leathery roots record contains music that bridges the gap between frail flesh and powerful spirit ruggedly, sensually, and honestly, making it a work of high art.
  2. Like Lucinda Williams, every blessed bon mot Hubbard drawls sounds lowdown--and eternal.
  3. Hubbard may sound ragged and patchy beyond his years at times, but there is no ignoring the fact that A. Enlightenment B. Endarkenment (Hint: There Is No C) is a damn fine record from a genuine Texas songwriting institution.
  4. Q Magazine

    Its grit and graft will keep his cult following happy. [Apr 2010, p.112]
  5. Powerful and smart above all else, Enlightenment may just be Hubbard's finest record, and it's certainly the new decade's first essential album.
  6. Uncut
    60
    It's a gruff set of semi-apocalypic country-blues songs with twangy guitar and all manners of noises. [Apr 2010, p.96]
