4 stars out of 5 -- "Gervasi's account isn't simply comic: it's an affecting study of young dreams buffeted by middle age..."Total Film 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] amazing story about optimism, limits and the underside of the rock 'n' roll dream. Much more than a rockumentary, this will have you questioning whether anyone should ever abandon their dreams."Empire 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Anvil is a real Canadian heavy metal band, and also one of hard rock's great also-rans....Using a Greek chorus of metal gods, including members of Anthrax and Slash from Guns N' Roses, Gervasi advances many theories for why success eluded this band."Box Office Its a hilarious, and unexpectedly moving, documentary about the greatest metal band youve probably never heard of -- Anvil, a crew of Canadian headbangers who came up in the demon-thrash 80s and were potent and original enough to influence the style and sound of Anthrax, Metallica, and Megadeth. -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly [T]he earnest, heartfelt striving of the two men at the center of Anvil makes the bands story more touching than comical.New York Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- The biggest surprise is not the pervasive comedy in this compelling rockumentary. Its the poignant, even heartbreaking, moments that sneak up on you as the saga unfolds.USA Today The film is a surprisingly charming look at the haphazard career path of some earnest, eternally hopeful rockers who cling to optimism about a glorious future despite harsh realitys repeated blows.Los Angeles Times [A] loopy, endearing documentary about the aging front men of a heavy-metal band....Youll be pulling for Anvil every step of the way.Wall Street Journal "[W]hile ANVIL! is frequently funny, it'd be a mistake to call the band a joke....Within the portrait of Anvil's endurance, we also see why they never made it huge: The band is too nice."A.V. Club 3 stars out of 4 -- "It shows the grit, sweat and blood that the non-pop rock bands have to deal with to do the thing they love....[The] interviews with Slash and Lars Ulrich add weight to the influence Anvil had on the heavy metal community."Premiere 3 stars out of 4 -- "ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL is a documentary about the moderate rise and long, long fall of their band, where musicians in the two other slots came and went, but Lips and Robb rocked on."Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Want to hear the heart of rock & roll? You can hear it thundering in Anvil....[A] powerhouse doc..."Rolling Stone "THE STORY OF ANVIL is a love letter -- or, better yet, a devil's-horn-salute -- to the band from filmmaker Sacha Gervasi, an old Anvil fan..."Washington Post Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Ten Best Documentaries Of 2009" -- "A story of hope, dogged perseverance and rock and roll..."Chicago Sun-Times45.88446

Rolling Stone (1/6/72, p.64) - "...a retreat to more basic jazz and instrumental rock and roll. It's very similar to...DEVOTION, on which McLaughlin...made it clear that heavy rock music wasn't necessarily like having an anvil dropped on your skull..."Mojo (Publisher) (2/99, p.102) - "...where the virtuosity of jazz and the power of rock really gelled...and this 1971 debut - holding frenzy on a leash through strangely serene Eastern, Celtic and bebop melodies, as well as meta-Hendrix riffage - is arguably their finest hour..."0.2925319

Rolling Stone (p.72) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he sublime attack often recalls late-Sixties Grateful Dead, when their songs still had garage-rock drive....They're like a jam band that refuses to be boring."Rolling Stone (p.74) - Ranked #46 in Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "[H]ard-driving punk-pastoral garage jams."Spin (p.79) - "Expect whiplash of the most intriguing, enjoyable kind, like your iPod jumping to a new album every other track."CMJ - "All members of White Denim can play circles around most of their indie-rock and garage contemporaries. Steve Terebecki has quietly become one of the best bassists in indie..."Paste (magazine) - "[T]hey once again seem determined to jam just about every sonic element from all the FM-oriented records released between 1966 and 1976 into a vaguely modernized template."Pitchfork (Website) - "D is easily White Denim's best-sounding effort yet: The band's trademark shape-shifting compositions now feature clean, interlocking guitar lines, and singer James Petralli's voice has smoothed out into a raspy howl."Record Collector (magazine) (p.103) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Practically every one of D's 10 tracks is underpinned by Joshua Block's skittering, ever inventive drums."Uncut (magazine) (p.35) - Ranked #4 in Uncut's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "Ceaselessly inventive, and quite exhilarating."0.2363696
