  1. Bursts with old-time voodoo bluster.
  2. The simpler style allows the tense commentary to come through loud and clear, as the band keeps up.

    This sounds like a brand-new, re-energized John Mellencamp.
  4. This album doesn't sound that distant from the grass-roots rock of Mellencamp albums such as Scarecrow and The Lonesome Jubilee.
  5. 70
    His most intimate recording yet. [#17, p.138]
  6. What gives it some distinction is that there's a freshness to the music, largely dervied from its quick recording, a quality that has been lacking in his records for many years now, arguably since Big Daddy.
  7. 40
    If you really want to hear folk-blues played with rock'n'roll attitude then go back to Boomer's Story or Into The Purple Valley. [Oct 2003, p.111]
