  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone - "On the ferocious rave-up 'Rockin' My Life Away,' Lewis shows the decades-younger Kid Rock and Slash how to do it."
    Billboard (p.40) - "[O]ne only need hear his bluesy solo piano version of 'Miss the Mississippi and You' to appreciate that Lewis still has his chops after 50 years."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Ronnie Wood donates the guitar licks on the title track, Slash supplies the pickin' on 'Rockin' My Life Away' and Keith Richards provides back-up on 'Sweet Virginia.'"
    Record Collector (magazine) (pp.83-85) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "This is a genuine legend in party mode....The Solomon Burke-assisted gospel holler of `Railroad To Heaven' stands proudly alongside the best of his past glories."
    Uncut (magazine) (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Lewis' piano still sounds as urgent and uncontained as it did when rock'n'roll was invented on it, and his insouciant snarl remains thrillingly feral."
