    Eric Burdon's flame still burns brighter than that of most bands half his age. [May 2013, p.91]

    He's boosted by a heart-and-soul R&B ensemble, but every hard-earned wrinkle on that still fierce visage remains in working order. [May 2013, p.90]

    It's too early to pass judgement, but in pursuit of Burdon's stated ambition to "finish my career with my head held high," 'Til Your River Runs Dry finds his mission fully on course, a hero returned. [May 2013, p.64]

    Even if there are no classics on the order of the ones that so impressed that youngster from Asbury Park, New Jersey, Eric Burdon’s river is far from running dry.

    To be honest, there are no masterpieces here. But there is a whole lot of damn fine music here.

    While ’Til Your River Runs Dry is unlikely to broaden his fan base to any large degree, longtime followers should be thrilled to find Burdon in such fine voice.

    Actually the ratings are way too low imo. This is one of his best albums by far. Eric just got so much soul. His power is a true inspirationActually the ratings are way too low imo. This is one of his best albums by far. Eric just got so much soul. His power is a true inspiration and his river is far from running dry. Saw him in concert few days ago and it was absolutely mind blowing. He is a true legend and actually one of the greatest artists of our time. Totally underrated! Expand
