All Music Guide - Matthew Greenwald
Jubilation, the tenth studio album by the Band, showcases a group that has aged better than the finest port wine. Yes, although the voices have aged noticeably particularly in the cases of Rick Danko and Levon Helm, this fact only makes the record more charming. The songwriting is still spiritual and evocative, and all of the tunes are peppered with a Grant Wood-ish plain-spoken sensibility that are at once familiar and instantly engaging.

The odd thing is that this version of the group has probably been together as long as the original Band. Guest appearances by Eric Clapton and John Hiatt are nice additions, but are not reasons to buy this album, as it holds up quite well on its own merits.

    The Band is Back

    When I first heard the Band's post Robbie Robertson work on "Jericho" and "High on the Hog," I was a little dissapointed by what was offered. There were a few exceptional songs on "Jericho," and barely none on "High on the Hog." But when I got my hands on "Jubilation," The Band's third attempt at a post Roberston album, I was very happy with the result. It was almost a return to form. The opening track, "Book Faded Brown" is a beautiful song lyrically, and Rick Danko sings it like an angel. Unfortunately, Levon Helm's voice was becoming susceptible to throat cancer, and we do not go get that hypnotizing tenor that was once featured on "The Weight," "Up on Cripple Creek," and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." The Band also gets help from their friends Eric Clapton and John Hiatt, who do a fine job. The latter sung a beautiful duet with Rick Danko on "Bound By Love." The album is an entirely acoustic album, which gives it that old time feel. Sadly, Rick Danko died a year after the release of this album, ending all possibilites of The Band reuniting again. The album is in no way Big Pink, but its a great effort that deserves mentioning. I would probably give this album 3-1/2 to 4 stars.
