  1. The follow-up is his party record, and deeper as a consequence, dark and hilarious and gone so fast you're too busy tapping your inner foot to cavil about pitch or timbre.

    It's Ray Wylie Hubbard at his best, candid, shrugging, unapologetic, and dispensing rock & roll philosophy in words that matter.

    Once again, Hubbard has proven his worth after 40 years in the business.

    It's among his best. [Apr. 2012, p.79]

    It's a swaggering, sexy, shake-your-ass, greasy, deep roots record.
  6. 70
    The songs are solid but the disc is greater than the sum of its parts as it congeals around Hubbard's confessional, often personal memories.

    Ray Wylie Hubbard on his album - "The Grifter's Hymnal" once again proves that the collected musical experience can result in very successful projects - and this certainly what the latest album is. Tracks are maintained in country style, sometimes however they contain cowpunk elements ("Coricidin Bottle") or blues ("Mother Blues"). Full Review »
