“I personally think that ALL THE SINNERS is up there with his finest musical work. Gentle, lamenting, like a Mantra from the highest mountain you just can't ignore. Call me old-fashioned or a little sentimental, but this shit gets me right there!!!”
“The tracks slice deep through the genre clutter with a groove that grabs my soul hard!”

"The lead singer's voice is one of those that only comes along every once in a while. It has a hypnotic quality. It reminded me of another vocalist - one who was popular when I was a child - an artist that was able to mesmerize me in a like fashion. I hope that I don't insult this man when I say that he reminded me a little of Tennessee Ernie Ford. While Tennessee's genre was completly different than that of this artist, his vocal talent demanded attention. So does the vocal purity of this artist. Tennessee's voice demanded respect, as does the voice of this artist. This artist deserves to be heard by the masses. It is unfortunate that this song is too politically incorrect to allow that to happen. Even so, the song and the band is well worth noting for future reference."
"Realistic and Heavy-The lyrics tell a story of hardship and uncertainty, and it's written with brutal, unflinching honestly. I've really only seen lyrics this heavy in classic blues, so finding it in this genre is intriguing, but certainly not unwelcome. The melody is catchy, especially with the inclusion of acoustic guitar, but it's very simple, and it matches the overall mood of the track. The weight of the lyrics hold you down, just like the tragic Captain the lyrics speak of."
