  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat's most striking is Plant's vocal versatility....The two most striking songs are the most left-field, both penned by the brooding husband-wife indie-rock band Low."
    Entertainment Weekly (p.139) - "Plant sounds vocally reenergized on this covers-heavy follow-up to his Grammy-winning Alison Krauss collaboration, RAISING SAND..." -- Grade: A-
    Billboard (p.28) - "[T]he Plant-Miller original 'Central Two-O-Nine' is a train song so authentic in tone that it almost sounds like a Johnny Cash chestnut."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The tender, propulsive take on the late Townes Van Zandt's 'Harm's Swift Way' is a nice touch....It all adds up to more willful magic from Plant."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.52) - Ranked #32 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "[A] textured solo effort."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.89) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Falling In Love Again' recalls Plant's days with The Honeydrippers, his voice as sweet and emotive as it's ever been."
    Uncut (magazine) (p.82) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Rarely in his post-Zep years has Plant sung as well as he does on BAND OF JOY....The album's closing quartet of tracks is a microcosm of American folk song."
    Uncut (magazine) (p.37) - Ranked #5 in Uncut's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "BAND OF JOY found him delving deeper into Americana, assisted by Buddy Miller and another crack team of Nashville outriders."
