Eli Paperboy Reed has crafted a new album that is at once back-to-basics and startlingly current, embodying the classic gospel ethos that everything's going to work out fine if you keep the faith. It's a notion that turns up throughout the record and reflects Reed's resilient spirit in the face of disappointment. MOJO called the Boston-via-Mississippi singer the "king of rhythm & soul." Rolling Stone hailed his "classic soul and horn-heavy R&B soaked with the blues.” NPR raved that "he conveys the heart-wrenching emotion of Southern predecessors such as Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding."
