    He proves every time he's on stage and across this wonderful LP...he's got it.

    Fields sounds commandingly assured with songs that ache and bristle with lush convictions.

    Field's tough but tender holler, adventurous arrangements and razor-sharp rhythms combine to ensure these breezy tributes to Motown, classic rock, and psychedelic soul always hit the right note. [April 2012, p.94]

    [The] excellent Faithful Man is a product of the dream team of producers, arrangers, songwriters and players (the house band called the Expressions) at Brooklyn's Truth & Soul Records, whose history parallels Brooklyn's better-known Daptone.

    If there's anything that keeps Faithful Man from equaling My World, aside from the occasional orchestral overkill, it's that the songwriting overall isn't quite as strong.

    As strong as this set is, it still faces the originality conundrum. Rather than a group of songs individually composed and packaged under the banner of a soul album, Faithful Man can occasionally feel like one extended, vaguely monochromatic exercise in proving the vitality of a brilliant yet aging art form.

    Great, if a little pointless. [Apr 2012, p.77]
