  1. These Nashville-based high ministers of retro-groove--known for their muscular live sermons--broaden their gospel on CD #2.
  2. The best songs on the band’s second album Burn It Down are laid-back, Love Boat-ready ballads.
  3. It's appropriate that the billing for this band is the Dynamites Featuring Charles Walker, not Charles Walker & the Dynamites, because that's what Walker sounds like on this disc, a featured performer rather than a dominating one. Thus, an album by the group is basically a calling card or souvenir of their live show more than a standalone entity.
  4. The group can put down a groove (“Do the Right Thing”), but the band is at its best when forgoing the heavy funk in favor of a more rollicking approach.
