    Those converted via the O Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack may find the starkness and religiosity here unpalatable. [Jan 2003, p.123]
  2. Anyone expecting the sharp, high-lonesome sound of "How Mountain Girls Can Love" and "Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms" may be disappointed at the sound of the septuagenarian's old bones croaking together, but anyone who can appreciate the stark purity of honest American folk music will hold this album close to their hearts.
