  1. Another fiercely satisfying Leo record.
  2. Living With The Living takes steps back to New Jersey, with the sort of big rock 'n' roll, free of subcultural claim, that'd make the Boss proud. [Apr 2007, p.176]
  3. His most poignant and accessible album yet.
  4. Leo and company go over a lot of territory on this release, but it is not bothersome or a stretch; the band pulls off all of these styles very well.
  5. There's as much silliness and attempted cred-building as there is genuine excitement.
  6. It's more blunt than 2004's already pointed Shake the Sheets, and more streamlined as well.
  7. This is a bloated, overlong rock record that shouldn’t have even considered breaking the 40-minute mark.
