    Even though this is done and dusted in just over 30 minutes, the raw rocking and joyous attitude will stick with you long afterwards.

    Going Back Home packs all the vital joy that R&B-powered rock'n'roll should, but rarely does. [Apr 2014, p.118]

    A joyful, celebratory affair. [Apr 2014, p.92]
  4. The pair attack a chunky selection of bluesy Wilko originals with gusto.

    Not so much a last will and testament. More a case of business as usual, for as long as he still can.

    The problem, though, is that you rather get the impression that Daltrey, with his contributions, is merely filling the role of high-profile vocalist; he’s got a great rock voice, but it’s ultimately it’s not diverse enough to do Johnson’s blues-based back catalogue justice.
  7. Dec 3, 2014
    Brawling tunes steeped in vintage rock & roll, with Daltrey setting his maximum-R&B yowl on full bluster against Johnson's slashing attack.
