    The grotesque cover illustration is an abomination, but the contents are right in the growling grizzly bear style that we've come to expect. Only four Seals-penned originals, but the R&B-laced "Life Is Hard" and "I'm Gonna Take It All Back" are quality efforts. So is his heartfelt tribute to Hound Dog Taylor, "Sadie." ~ Bill Dahl

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (11/94, p.66) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Seals sings with field-hollar intensity....His guitar work is searing and expressive....he strikes with no-holds-barred ferocity..."
    Option (11-12/94, p.143) - "...Seals' sound is all Chicago barroom grit, just as much rhythm as blues, with a little rock 'n roll and a lotta soul....He always picks good material, writes a fair amount of it, and sings with the gruff roar of the Big Bad Wolf..."
    Musician (12/94, p.94) - "...Seals delivers a neat summation of his two-decade career....NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH is a sharp, at times scathing entry by one of the genre's most soulful exorcists..."
