Celebrating 50 Years

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
The gospel-singing Williams Brothers mark their demi-centennial with an album of old and new music that's divided into three parts. On the first handful of songs, they address the present, reaffirming their commitment on "All These Years It Ain't Over." In the middle of the disc come half a dozen old favorites. Then, at the end there's more new material. Actually, old or new, the Williams Brothers continue to sound like a soul/R&B vocal group from the 1960s or '70s.

"You," one of the new songs up front, has the sound of '70s funk to it, while "He's Alright," another new one near the end, is reminiscent of the Temptations' "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" to the point of almost being actionable.
