Vibe (4/94, p.105) - "...most singers on this project are matched to partners with whom they can connect in a manner that transcends color, class, and musical category....the album's hits are more frequent, and more profound, than its misses...."Musician (5/94, p.72) - "...On paper this marriage between country and R&B seems merely a good idea, but on album, it comes across as genius....you may end up thinking of country and R&B as two sides of the same coin...."Stereo Review (4/94, p.91) - "...cuts through the differences in the cultures of blacks and whites to find the core of shared experience. Soul, it seems, whether black or white, urban or rural, knows no true domain but the heart...."Audio Magazine (3/94, p.88) - Sound: B+ / Performance: A- - "...Performances throughout are delightful and ingenuous, and ringing with mutual respect. That many of the songs have been hits in both genres only adds resonance ....Thankfully nothing's too deep here except the roots...."0.2296107

"[T]his 1972 concert a the Los Angeles Coliseum was arguably more remarkable than its hippie predecessor." Rolling Stone "It's a testament to the music, a mix of funk, gospel, and soul, that the prevailing mood is one of devotion, compassion, and hope, which Stuart captures in full." Film Comment "[Y]ou are getting a great concert film and a decent slice-of-African-American-life doc for the price of one." Entertainment Weekly "This is more than just a concert film; it's a retrospective commemoration of the 1965 Watts riots, punctuated by a gut-busting Richard Pryor, just beginning his tenure as the funniest man alive."USA Today0.1968092

Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Staples' voice is a rich, liquid wonder, and Tweedy's production -- thick with guitar tremolo -- is faithful to her funk and gospel work with the Staples Singers."Entertainment Weekly (p.139) - "[S]tellar...with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy producing 71-year-old gospel great Staples." -- Grade: A-CMJ - "Staples' voice has aged remarkably well, and the rasps and crackles come in all the right places..."Living Blues (p.40) - "Mavis applies her throaty contralto with consummate passion to a mix of spiritual and secular material that includes a hauntingly harmonized a cappella reading of 'Wonderful Savior'..."Billboard (p.40) - "The standout is Staples' tear-stained take of Randy Newman's 'Losing You.' She wrings every bit of emotion out of the song without seemingly batting an eye."Mojo (Publisher) (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Little Milton's gutsy soul'n'blues 'We're Gonna Make It' is delivered unequivocally as a hymnal to universal peace; Mavis's vocal performance, intense, deep, almost a growl at times, and quite simply jaw-dropping."Mojo (Publisher) (p.56) - Ranked #12 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "The results: exciting, impassioned, essential."Pitchfork (Website) - "'You Are Not Alone, as its title suggests, intends to be a salve in hard times, and Staples rallies her most sympathetic delivery, as if comforting listeners individually."Record Collector (magazine) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'You Don't Knock' is a deft gospel number that sets things off well with an uplifting call-and-response passage."Uncut (magazine) (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The stripped-down, Muscle Shoals-style arrangements give Mavis space to do her thing, and the song choices are spot-on..."0.171572
