By Red on Black TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 Sept. 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What a treat to stumble onto this album streaming alongside Robert Plant's brilliant new record "Band of Joy" on the the excellent New Public Radio. Mavis Staples voice at the age of 71 remains a minor miracle and her gospel zeal is fundamentally intact. On her version of "Pops" Staples "Downward Road" the third song on this new album she openly berates those amongst us who are "unbelieving souls" and it is indeed a fearsome salutatory warning to all ungodly pagans (I must pop along to the the old non conformist chapel one Sunday!) Indeed listening to her enduring and rich deep soul contralto it suggests that being on the side of the lord has done her no harm whatsoever with this set of deeply rooted gospel songs being her best in years. An additional and more secular factor may also be the presence of Wilco's resident genius Jeff Tweedy providing the albums production and a couple of songs including the gently rolling country soul of the title track which must be one of the best songs that Tweedy has never recorded with his own band.

The Tweedy-Staples pairing does not seem that likely a partnership but shared love of both of them for Chicago blues, gospel and R&B provides the unifying force and it works a treat. No where is this more apparent than on the stirring "Creep along Moses" which is the type of gospel powerhouse infused with the emotion that is at the heart of soul music and is an aural delight to savour. It takes considerable restraint not to utter a loud "hallelujah" at the songs conclusion. The mood slows on Staples dramatic cover of Randy Newman's "Losing you" which is infused with so much genuine authenticity and passion that it will barely leave a dry eye in the house particularly when she sings "Do you know how much you mean to me?

must admit that this is a magnificent album. What makes it so good is the wide range of styles that Mavis displays on the album. "I belong to the Band" is straightforward rock, "Losing You" is almost late-night jazz, while"Last Train" reminds me of Little Feat. Mavis's voice is superb throughout, and as well as the overt religious message there are nicely humorous touches, and some of the social messages that featured heavily in The Staples Singers work - "In Christ there is no East or West" is as much about racism as it is about Christianity.

I could lavish superlatives on this all day, and other reviewers have given a more detailed track by track review, so I'll conclude by saying simply that this is, in my opinion, the album of 2010. And remember: "The downward road is crowded with unbelieving souls" - so believe in Mavis and buy this album.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 Sept. 2010
Format: Audio CD
In a week saturated with papal posturing and pomposity it
is a joy to have the opportunity to consider Ms Staples'
truly joyous expression of a faith of more modest proportions.

As a creature without a soul I may not possess the necessary
credentials to evaluate performances of such obvious comittment
but what passes for spirit at the core of my hairy heart cannot
but respond with warmth and affirmation to a work of such simple,
uncluttered beauty and consummate musical refinement.

Ms Staples voice is remarkably intact for a septuagenarian; it
has inevitably deepened and darkened with time but this only
serves to enchance her impeccable ability to give life to the
words she sings. The interpretations of these thirteen fine
songs are full of light and shade; pointed emotion and unbridled
fun. They are framed with subtle understanding by Jeff Tweedy's
marvellously focussed production and the unfailingly sympathetic
and highly skilled instrumental contribution of her cracking band.

The treasures are many! Ms Staples rips up the rug and delivers
a raucous performance of Rev. Gary Davis' 'I Belong To The Band',
belting out the lyrics with extraordinarily rasping and robust power!
No less so her ripe-to-bursting rendition of Pop Staple's 'Downward
Road'; a call to arms to drive the devil down!

Allen Toussaint's 'Last Train' gets a laugh-out-loud treatment!
With Ms Staples "....huffing and puffing and chugging like a
choo-choo train (CHOOO CHOOO!)" it is simply impossible NOT to
love her! This lady is certainly no "Cuckoo Brain"!!

The stripped-down bluesy arrangement of Randy Newman's 'Losing You'
is one of the album's several highlights.

Absolutely wonderful. Saw her on Jools Holland show and was so impressed that I bought this album next day and the listening gets better each time I play it.

Quite short in minutes bit very big on emotion. Bought this after watching the documentary "mavis". The voice is so strong, so full and the emotion and sense of loss pours out at you.
It really is a good piece of work and just commands listening. It's a funny thing but as an atheist I get so pissed of with some "religious" works but his is gospel as it should be.
