  1. Even at just six songs, they’re each powerfully presented and Perkins is better for it, in astonishingly marvelous fashion.
  2. Perkins has always carried the torch of vintage Americana, and he covers all his bases here.
  3. Doomsday is brutally emotional, but Perkins' band adds a sense of defiance, making it safe for closing time.
  4. The folk-country songs fill a much larger space than their separate parts suggest. These are the songs that are the essence of rock ‘n’ roll.
  5. With the exception of the lone cover in "Gypsy Davy", Perkins has assembled a small sampling of songs here all with their own very healthy set of bones.
