    This is stunning, grooves from start to finish. Songs aren't exceptional to be fair hence only a nine but if anyone wants to learn how to play guitar with feel and soul then look no further. Steve Winwood eat your heart out.

    This is a very promising debut album. I was hooked the first time I heard it. Think of The White Stripes with a touch of funk and extended jams.

    Not sure about Cadogan being the next biggest guitar genius, but this is a very promising start. Critics have been unfair about the retro issue; these are good, strong songs nicely mixing soul and blues. A definite candidate for second album scrutiny. A personal tip would be that Jet slump, and these guys soar, in that department. SPOILER ALERT: Check out American Minor's debut next month!!!

    The best minimalism funk treatise since Dyke and the Blazers Skilled songwriter fusing Hendrix soul tunes and Bobbie Gentry. Forget the new rock swindle, Little Barrie are the ones to stay.

    a perfect, blend of everything Rock from the 60s on up. Little Barie really hits every song out of the park. The lyrics are fun and the rifs are full of soul, funk, and power. check these guys out!

    Little Barrie fuses every great style from the 60's and 70's and strips it down to the bare minimum. If you like James Brown, the White Stripes, Hendrix, or the Temptations you will definitely enjoy "We Are Little Barrie".

  1. Play[s] out like a fresh discovery that's strangely familiar--a '60s soul in a 21st-century outfit.
  2. We Are Little Barrie is a stunning debut for sure, and the kind of record both old-school classic rock dads and groove-loving young kids should be clambering over each other to buy.

    Barrie's wank-free creedo makes for a bright, poppy debut. [20 May 2005, p.77]
