Vibe (10/95, p.140) - "...Cooke was sometimes called `the black Sinatra,' and NIGHT BEAT shows exactly why. With spare, jazz-inflected backing, he offers the sort of loosely swinging, nuanced delivery that few besides Frank could ever match..."62.26137

Entertainment Weekly (6/14/94, p.66) - "...a rare look at [Sam Cooke's] formative years...though the material is repetitious, his conviction never wavers. On `Were You There?' his ad-libbed line, `Did they really pierce Him in the side?' is chilling...." - Rating: B+0.6425336

Spin (6/02, p.105) - 8 out of 10 - "...Frontman Mick Collins is the unofficial godfather of Detroit's garage-rock scene....this is an album of roughed-up '60s and '70s soul covers..."NME (Magazine) (7/28/01, p.41) - 8 out of 10 - "...It's a simple idea. Take soem classic tunes by Sam Cooke, Smokey Robinson, Curtis Mayfield, etc., play them as loud as hell with an evangelical zeal that recalls the MC5 and Stooges....Life affirming."0.4283557

Living Blues (9-10/95, pp.75-77) - "...The blend of classic and original material makes for an interesting program, and the arrangements make the appropriate bow to the Horns' Stax/Memphis roots without sounding like museum pieces.

Rolling Stone (p.74) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he combination of classicist songcraft, wild sound collage and a muse that partakes equally of the sensual and silly makes LOVE VS. MONEY far more than just an accomplished genre piece....There isn't a weak song on MONEY; most of them are unforgettable."XXL (Magazine) (p.111) - "On the album-ending 'Nothing but Love,' Dream channels the spirit of Sam Cooke....With LOVE VS. MONEY, it's clear that The-Dream has crafted a definite winner."Blender (Magazine) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[C]heck how 'Love Vs. Money: Part 2' layers and sequences two orchestral textures, electronica noises, a harmonizing chorus and a homey chant and an occasional yelp, and who knows how many drum and bass elements."0.3748113

King, and even Jackie Wilson, elegantly nodding to his clarion-voiced heroes while never allowing the album to become mired in mere tribute."Blender (Magazine) (p.76) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "MULTIPLY's buzzing digital flourishes give way to a simpler sonic milieu as Lidell's husky voice slips into streamlined R&B throwbacks with a newfound ease."URB (Magazine) (p.107) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]is Prince-like trimmings have morphed into an obvious devotion to the prime days of Stax....[With] more of the B3 Hammond organ and feel good harmonies."0.3212668
