Slant Magazine
Giddens’s depth of musical knowledge comes in handy throughout Freedom Highway, and not just for unearthing some of the roots of the old, weird American folk vernacular. […]

The album’s beauty and gravitas come from how Giddens collapses the last two centuries of American history, juxtaposing songs about antebellum slave plantations with 1960’s Civil Rights anthems and narratives of 21st-century state violence. […]

Paste Magazine
