  • Summary: The Reverend returns to his roots, reuniting with the same producer (Willie Mitchell), Memphis studio (Hi Records' Royal Studios) and session musicians that made him a legend during the 1970s.

  1. Though the songs are sometimes little more than vamps, the interplay is faultless.
  2. 80
    It's not amazing... but it's great. [Jan 2004, p.106]
  3. I Can't Stop is impressively consistent: There's not a sub-par song in the bunch.
  4. 80
    He is, if anything, singing better than ever. [Dec 2003, p.104]
  5. The funk on the reverend's latest may be too smooth for some, but I Can't Stop will make even casual fans want to jump up and kiss somebody.
  6. If there's a flaw, it's that the production is too sharp; the warm murkiness of Green's Hi era is much missed.
  7. 40
    A weak echo of those gloriously clean and spacious LPs [of the 70s]. [Dec 2003, p.136]

    Al Green's comeback is a thing of beauty. He still sounds like he did all those years ago.
