“What gives Tattoed something extra is the lead vocalist Amy McFarland, who can be gutsy, sweet and sassy all in the same song. Some tunes contain a sly sense of humor that Amy conveys without sounding contrived. When things get a little funkier, as on “Just About to Creep Me Out” and her self-penned “One Swimmin’, One Drowned,” she sounds as authoritative as she does on the slow, grinding “Rolling Thunder Blues.””

“The album’s polish extends well beyond a fresh treatment of a 1960s psych-pop hit. Precise arrangements, McFarland’s expressive vocals and perfect diction, and Kepes’s clean Santana-style guitar playing combine to give the Merchants a distinct personality.”
