    The fourth album by string-band revivalists Old Crow Medicine Show and their first for Nettwerk Records, O.C.M.S. is the band's strongest work. Evenly split between traditional folk and blues songs like "C.C. Rider" and "Poor Man" and originals by the band members, these 11 songs are solid, unpretentious folk-rock delivered with enough zest to lift it from the trad ghetto. The album ends with the band's signature song, "Wagon Wheel," which banjo player Ketcham Secor wrote around the chorus of an uncompleted song that appeared on a Bob Dylan bootleg in the mid-1970s.

    Entertainment Weekly (2/13/04, p.73) - "[S]trikes a fine balance between a rowdier acousticism and the more reflective folk traditions exemplified by [Gillian] Welch." - Rating: B+
    Magnet (p.68) - "[The songs] are constant reminders that what makes rock such a hoot is all that hollering."
