"Water Grave is an instant hit with me for 2 reasons ... 1 spiritual, & the other is musically related. It reminds me that I am a new creation in Christ, old things are passed away, etc..
Now as for the remainder of the cd ... Amazing Grace is about as classic as classic gets! But what "knocks it out of the ballpark" as they say, is how well the vocals were utilized & blended for a unique style. The overall blend of each and every song resonates with God given talent. And I know I have already mentioned this, but what sells the music, in my humble opinion, and in my years of being in the music industry, is the fact that The Righteous Blues Band don't just play an intro, sing a few lyrics, play a wee bit more & end the song. God forbid! You lads took the time to showcase your playing skills. An extra bonus is that, like the Beatles, the lyrics are catchy & easy to remember."
"Thought I would take a minute to review the CD I recently purchased from The Righteous Blues Band. I won't lie, I am a die hard rock fan, but I like a smattering of all genres of music. I really liked the praise music on this CD. Having been raised catholic with a father who loved old time gospel music I am familiar with many hymns, but my favorite (and my father's) has always been "Amazing Grace". The Righteous Blues Band's rendition of this song is hauntingly beautiful. Other favorites of mine from the CD are the "Righteous Shuffle" and "Water Grave". All of the music is great, and I can't wait to see what the band will put out next time. Great job guys!"
“This is an absolutely EXCELLENT Believer's Blues album! I've heard a lot of Christian Blues music that had the title but only a couple of songs that really had the substance. These guys got it NAILED! Very Good Christ-centered messages, excellent guitar playing, good vocal work, rockin' rhythm section, and NO cheesy electronic keyboards like what most Christian music is dominated by! I find it difficult to choose a favorite....Go Straightway to their site & order your copy, I Highly recommend it!”
"GREAT JOB on the CD, guys. I'm listening to it as we speak, and it simply blows me away. So by way of a review:
The quality of the songs, sound, mix, musicianship exceeded my expectations. I mean, I expected this CD to be good, but WOW! "Water Grave"? Are you kidding me? This song is amazing and worth the cost of the CD alone, but every song is good.
There's heart, soul and passion in the playing and singing that comes through loud, crisp, clear and strong on each track. Music without heart or passion isn't music. Terry, Craig Jay, Benny and Matt -- you have created a "must have" collection of rockin' Christian blues.
This is "feel good" music folks. You don't have to be "religious" to enjoy the music here, but don't be surprised if it doesn't touch you some place and in a way you never expected. The RBB has truly given us a gift in this collection of songs. Keep up the good work!!!!!!"

“Re:"Time''s Up" - Rockin... man I would love to come to your church! Man some smoking blues and church lady food..... That is great praise music right there.”

"(I'm A) Christian Man" has been a real favorite of mine since you first did it...it is solid, raw, tight ... it's you at your blues best.
“'A LIttle Bit Funky' has a great groove. Fine solid vocals; very good tone and range. Whippin' kickin' solo; with a great backup.”
“Never Knew His Love is fantastic!! Great Job!”
