“Original material, sound vocals and great instrumentation are the hallmark of this independently produced album. The boys really identified themselves right when they coined their name 'Funky Blues Messiahs' for that is what this album is made of. This one is a solid 'A'.
— Delta Snake Daily Blues
“The Messiahs Funk out some of the best butt-bustin', butt-thrustin', behind the beat grooves around. These guys are a riot, I'd hang with them anytime.
— Dirty Linen
“The Band is a real good band. The vocals have a great tone. The Guitar is great. The solos are nice. You know, it sounds like that 'South of I-10 music that I love. The real Mardi Gras Music. I enjoyed it very much. I'd like to see you live.
“A mixture of Funk and Blues that makes you tap your feet, with some groaning lyrics provided by front man Doug Bare. Unique and inventive, but essentially down home New Orleans music.
— WWOZ FM New Orleans
“This Disc might be said to be a guilty pleasure for this writer, but they consistently lay down a strong groove, Bare sings soulfully, and there is fine support from the various players.Also, the songs certainly are not simply the same old hackneyed themes one has heard before.
“With their elegant chord changes, punchy melodies, soulful backing vocals and two strong creative personalities at the helm, they might be the closest thing to Steely Dan to be found in Blues.
