    Epic in scale, World Boogie Is Coming is an extraordinary amalgam of envelope-pushing studio manipulation and DNA-fuelled deep gut grooves. [Dec 2013, p.71]

    NMA's version of Junior Kimbrough's "Meet Me in the City" here almost sounds like power pop, but filtered through a rustic moonshine filter. Every track here is like that, roaring into the 21st century sounding big, urgent, and huge, but so grounded in the local folk-blues tradition that each track seems to carry imprinted DNA that says boogie all over it.

    It’s chaotic and expansive in the best sense: The Allstars attack many blues and southern rock ideas--and let loose doing it. As a result, World Boogie feels like a journey.

    More than country cousins to the Black Keys, these Allstars are the real deal. [No. 103, p.58]

    Though it's arranged into four old-school sides, lob on a download card full of bonus material and home movies and it's a retro-modern package to make old Muddy's eyes water. [Nov 2013, p.94]

    Their latest, crammed with 17 tracks, will likely be a case of too much of a good thing for all but the hardcore fans.

    Both slow-burning, early Zeppelin-style blues, its understandable they would front-load the album with its trump card, but both seem slightly at odds with the Dickinsons' mission statement. [Jan 2014, p.101]
