    REV is one of Horton Heat’s finest sets, channeling the abandon, fun and rebellion of primal rock ‘n’ roll without a cloying or overly nostalgic moment.

    REV is the Reverend Horton Heat's strongest rock & roll album since 2000's Spend a Night in the Box, simply because it shows the Reverend and company to their best advantage: they do this stuff better than anyone, and they don't have to apologize for playing to their strengths when they can still wail like this.

    Ultimately Rev proves that a hard-driving beat and a searing six-string are timeless pleasures. [Feb 2014, p.94]

    While they are still lyrically and musically on point, sometimes that old sense of humor seems to be something they just can’t quite recapture in the present day. That said, they’re not slouching on this disc.
