    Like their revivalist peers, Cave Singers aren't reinventing a genre here, but they lend their local folkie scene a welcome dark side, and No Witch is their strongest album yet.

    Though the sound may be different, The Cave Singers stay within themselves to make their best record to date.

    Steel strings slick with gumbo grease and sweet gospel inflections.
  4. No Witch might not be a particularly ground-breaking album, but it is a significant leap forward for this band, and that's most definitely a step in the right direction.

    As its title implies, No Witch is missing something: Where magic and a little evil ought to dwell, there's workmanship dressed up in wizard's robes.

    The change might not be as shocking as, say, when Bob Dylan went electric, but it's still something of a shock to hear the pastoral sound of the Cave Singers' past chopped down by plugged-in axes.

    While not quite a handbrake turn, No witch shows a band moving out of the woods into wider spaces. [Apr 2011, p.77]

    This is a band that shows some good potential and they are pretty decent at their playing. While this is a green score, it's more like barelyThis is a band that shows some good potential and they are pretty decent at their playing. While this is a green score, it's more like barely above average; the songs wear out their welcome too quickly, the mix of folk, blues, and rock is executed not too well, and it just feels too long for its own good. The band is interesting though and when they make good music, the music is pretty damn good. Hopefully future outputs will be much better than this. Full Review »
