CD Streets of Fire [Original Soundtrack] 
CD Dirt Track Date
Alternative Press (12/95, p.98) - "...here is a neat little rockabilly outfit, who know more than a tad about the history of the genre....they have a lot more in common with the Blasters than the Beverly Hillbillies....They know their way 'round a good twang, and Rick Miller can hit a whammy bar with the best of them..."Magnet (p.115) - "[W]hen it comes to the music, this band is as deadly as a switchblade."
CD Trouble Bound
Rolling Stone (11/14/02, p.89) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A reminder of the L.A. rockabilly stalwarts' versatility..."Q (01/03, p.113) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...The band prove their worth in a set long on sweat and short on pomp..."Uncut (12/02, p.140) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...They breathe new life into the old tunes and then some, sounding more reinvigorated than the faithful would have dared hope..."Living Blues (6/03, p.97) - "...The bands trademark mix-and-match aesthetic holds them in good stead throughout....The Blasters remains one of the best roots-rock party bands on the contemporary scene..."
DVD Streets of Fire [DVD]  [Multilingual] [Region 1]
"...The large ensemble cast is game....[Some songs shot with] real pizzazz." Entertainment Weekly "...A pulsing, throbbing orchestration....The film alternately, and sometimes simultaneously, suggests the rhythm and texture of BLADE RUNNER, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and THE WARRIORS..." Variety "...[With] a pulsating mix of flashy cutting and Ry Cooder music....A guilty-pleasure cult movie..." USA Today
CD Hot Rod Twangin': The 1960s Crown Recordings
CD King of California 
Rolling Stone (7/14/94, p.104) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Trust Dave Alvin to craft an unplugged set that sizzles...he ranks with Springsteen, John Hiatt and the colloquial Dylan..."Alternative Press (8/94, p.72) - "...KING OF CALIFORNIA just proves that acoustic isn't a synonym for arid when it comes to making music..."Option (Sept/Oct 94, p.89) - "...It's dynamite stuff, very personal and confident. Johnny Cash may be making a come back, but Dave Alvin's easily his equal without being an imitator..."Stereo Review (7/94, p.82) - Performance: Hypnotic / Recording: Good - "...A basic folk-and-blues album, mostly out of reworked songs previously recorded solo or with his first band, the Blasters. Along the way he throws in a few covers...that fit his theme of life's beautiful losers caught in freeze frame demise..."
