    The vibe isn't far removed from the funky frathouse spirit of a vintage Leon Russell album (note: That's a good thing). [18 Mar 2005, p.66]
  2. It's already on my list as one of the absolute best albums of 2005.
  3. Bomb is their most adventurous album to date.
  4. Mojo

    This is their best album in 65 years. [May 2005, p.94]
  5. The Blind Boys of Alabama still know how to get to the soul of the matter.
  6. The Blind Boys of Alabama are probably the world’s hippest septuagenarians.
  7. Uncut
    60
    Their energy is extraordinary. [May 2005, p.97]
