HOKEYBLOG!
The album is almost entirely enchanting and enjoyable, with only the average Salvation a step below its brethren. And even that track is still pleasant enough to not outrage anyone’s musical sensibilities. […]

Rolling Stone
He usually sings at the top of his range without much dynamic variation; in the process he forces the group and arrangements to supply most of the color. The result is that the music breaks up and the effect becomes a little too ragged. […]

Sputnikmusic
“Honky Chateau” is a great work full of upbeat rock, boogie, funk, gospel, and folk songs with some slower, more mellow ones as well. […]
