    This is the first album by Bobby Womack I've ever listened too, and I must admit, it's one of the best, boldest, and biggest surprises I've listened too in the year 2012. Bobby Womack sounds tired, drifted, beat up, and 100% soulful. Womack sings the blues the best, he still sounds fantastic. The lyrics are powerful, and made me really look at things differently.

All In All, this album will forever go down as one of the best American releases of 2012, and will stick with me for the rest of my life. A Expand

    It's to Russell and Albarn's eternal credit, then, that they not only noticed but reach out and made this wonderful record happen. [Jul 2012, p.99]

    The dramatic new music made by Bobby Womack - a true survivor - is an important listening session for any serious music lover. [No.89, p.60]

    The gift that this record has offered him is the gift of being who he is once again. [Jul 2012, p.59]
