Los Angeles Times - 12/28/2007
"The film evocatively charts a time and place where change has been a longtime coming and buoyantly imagines a turning point where, at least musically, anything is possible."
Total Film - 06/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "All the strands that fed into rock 'n' roll -- R&B, blues, jazz, gospel and country -- run through the action, finally coming together in the jam session that forms the film's triumphant unfettered climax."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2008
"[T]his is a warm, sweet-natured movie....Glover holds the centre with weary dignity, and there's a touchingly vulnerable performance from Yaya DaCosta..."

Uncut - 06/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]s always with Sayles, the good stuff is in the characterisations. Glover is a treat as Pine Top, and there's a fine comic turn from Charles S. Dutton as his long-suffering side-kick..."
