    Each song has bite, but every sound on Soul Power is kept fairly mellow.

    This blending of expected and unexpected makes Soul Power something altogether special. [Feb 2015, p.92]

    An exceptionally strong debut record, Soul Power will make you believe in the title concept.

    Soul Power is music that honors the rich traditions of classic R&B while keeping its head and heart in the here and now; some folks say you can't have it both ways, but Curtis Harding is here to show that's a lie.

    A confident take on sleek, horn-powered Philly soul with a hunt of garage muscle. [Feb 2015, p.78]

    Soul Power is emotionally tangible and downright soulful and in his own way Harding has fittingly paid homage to the words sung by the old guards of soul, who united and continue to unite so many.

    Aside from the TV on the Radio-esque space rock of Drive, it’s hard to detect what he’s bringing fresh to the mix. Too often, Harding’s new blues and soul sound very much like the old versions.
