Alabama 3 have always had a dark side, but with this album they're almost moving into Nick Cave territory. The music still has some of the country/gospel strains of earlier albums, but is heavier on the brooding, metallic techo, spiced with some R&B and an updated version of Country Joe McDonald's Vietnam Song. Good stuff, but not for the faint hearted.

Having recently seen A3 live and already a big fan of theirs I was looking forward to this album. I am however disappointed overall. There are a couple of moments of genius; 'Fix It' and 'All God's Children' would be up there with anything they have ever recorded, but unusually for an A3 album, much of the rest is just filler. Worse, even, is that a lot of the tunes are fairly forgettable.

I was very disappointed but would still recommend anything else they have ever recorded and please do go see them live, they will blow you away.

Keep the faith.

I've been an A3 enthusiast since Exile on Coldharbour Lane, always faintly worried that the group will fail to come up to scratch with their next disc. No sweat! They have never let me down - and Revolver Soul is well up to their usual high standard. "Vietnamistan" is a spine-chiller
and I couldn't find a track from "Intro" to
"Outro" that I could fault.
Everyone I've recommended the group to has been as impressed with them as I. Long may they jam!

This has got to be the best Alabama 3 Album yet. Usually a fan of Alabama 3 Accoustic numbers and the more dark and rootsy Country/Western side of what they do, this album is mindblowingly good.

Building on the electronic-eclectic style that the Alabama 3 guys have always made for live gigs and occasional album offerings, this album takes it to the next level compared to the storylines MOR offered. Here you see an ever more urban, more bump and grind and dirty Alabama 3, but mastered in a slick and chunky style, perhaps more so than their last offering. Each tune is hooky without being generic or poppy and each has a definite vibe and feel to it, like a scene from a film or a nightmare or drug-induced haze.

A soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist on celluloid, the album offers a trip in a very real sense. I was sober when I listened to it, but I know I'll feel it whatever state of mind I am in. I just heard these tracks for the first time in high def having heard a couple of youtube previews which don't do them justice and am very enthusiastic about them already. At the same time, I know this one is going to be a grower as the quality is a leap up from MOR which I dug, but didn't enjoy as much as their first 3 albums.

If you've never heard Alabama 3 before, jump on board, but fasten your seatbelts, it's gonna be a real bumpy ride fellas...

Alabama 3 make very good music and pose one or two interesting
questions at the same time. Since their 1997 debut 'Exile On
Coldharbour Lane' they have produced an exceptional and elusive
body of work which, despite its unimpeachable quality has never
been quite enough to propel them into the upper-echelons of the
listening world. I can only assume that this is a state of affairs which
does not keep its creators awake at night. They appear happy, in their
own way, to bumble merrily along (in every and no particular direction)
taking with them anyone who might be game enough to endure and enjoy
the uncertainty that signing up for a magical mystery tour might entail.

Their new album 'Revolver Soul' is an extraordinary achievement. This is not
fusion, in any cheap sense of the word. This is sonic fission!
The many varied musical elements which explode and drift away from the
centre hang in the air like the shards of new yet strangely familiar elements;
Exotic and passionate and strange and tantalising and intoxicatingly wonderful!

The Wild West swagger of 'Jacqueline', with its jangly and angular sixties-tainted
guitar, wrapped up in layers of ghost-rider reverb; the secular gospel of 'She
Blessed Me', spilling delicious terrestrial soul out of every orifice (with a little
help from Johnny Borrell from Razorlight firing on all six cylinders!

A3 and I go back a long way now. I started with La Peste, which I thought extraordinary, then Coldharbour: totally different but sheer brilliance. Then came Power in the Blood - complacency had set in already. Outlaw, MOR and a couple of others just compounded the problem. The band was simply shot away; they'd cashed in all their genius in their early efforts and were now just turning up for the beer.

Then I read most of the feedback on this CD and thought I was in for a good ride, and yes, it's better than some other stuff - but nothing like the Alabama 3 of old. The genius of tracks like Ain't Goin' to Goa, Old Purple Tin, Mansion on the Hill, Sinking or Too Sick to Pray simply isn't there.

Frankly, I can't see what you reviewers have: almost every track on Revolver Soul sounds the same as almost every other and while I'm nearly half-happy with it, it still, to me, is certainly not a great new CD. It's very, very average.
