Down Beat (12/95, p.71) - 3.5 Stars - Good/Very Good - "...a uniformly excellent collection of insightful original songs delivered with authoritative vocals and blazing guitar solos....he manages to never be totally out of control while also being equally unpredictable."JazzTimes (3/96, p.109) - "More hard-edged blues from this intense blues man....Superbly crafted, well recorded, highly recommended."Dirty Linen (2-3/96, p.85) - "...possibly the best electric blues album of the year, shows that Luther Allison's "comeback" of last year was no fluke, and that he has the instrumental chops, vocal power, and songwriting skills to stay at the top."Musician (11/95, p.92) - "...leaves rock stylings...behind and displays an emotional and instrumental weight....Backed by a brawny, dense band, he's admirably direct on vocals, and his guitar work, in the classic [Chicago] West Side manner, displays plenty of sizzle and snap..."128.523

Rolling Stone (11/25/99, p.102) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...makes evident that he added a dollop of soul [to the blues]....The songs had a workmanlike sturdiness. But the unhinged performances...left blood on the floor."Dirty Linen (2-3/00, p.72) - "...Allison charges out of the gate, unleashing sheets of shredding guitar pyrotechnics. There's gospel ferocity in his singing, but the music's full-bore and unrelenting..."'76.85815
