    Overall, the album displays an artist in total command of his style and vision, which only makes sense considering how long and accomplished Dennis Coffey's career has been.

    This self-titled offering is monster; a masterpiece of tough, psychedelic soul.

    It sounds like all involved had fun putting this one together, and the listening experience is a pretty fun one too.

    Assembling an impressive list of guests that understand his legacy (Paolo Nutini, Mayer Hawthorne, and the Dirtbombs' Mick Collins among them), Coffey sounds downright vital, unleashing dusted licks and stinging wah-wah over boom-bap breaks and buoyant horns.

    Sitting alongside those covers are several new instrumentals that offer a full serving of the fuzzed-out, wah-wahed, stinging, spacey pyrotechnics of Coffey's guitar playing.

    Vintage soul styles are duly nailed with his coruscating guitar between funk and psychedelic rock. [Jun 2011, p.110]

    These musicians are all beyond competent, but aside from Coffey they don't play with much personality.
