All Music Guide - Mark Deming
Anyone who has ever saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band between 1975 and 1981 knows one of the reasons they were among the best live bands in America is they had three members with the power and charisma to make great frontmen -- Springsteen, Clarence Clemons, and "Miami Steve" Van Zandt. In 1982, while Springsteen was laboring over Born in the U.S.A., Van Zandt -- who'd already proved his considerable chops as a producer, songwriter, and arranger working with Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes and Gary U.S. Bonds -- stepped away from the E Street Band to launch a solo project, Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul, and in many ways the first Little Steven ...

Anyone who has ever saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band between 1975 and 1981 knows one of the reasons they were among the best live bands in America is they had three members with the power and charisma to make great frontmen -- Springsteen, Clarence Clemons, and "Miami Steve" Van Zandt. In 1982, while Springsteen was laboring over Born in the U.S.A., Van Zandt -- who'd already proved his considerable chops as a producer, songwriter, and arranger working with Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes and Gary U.S. Bonds -- stepped away from the E Street Band to launch a solo project, Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul, and in many ways the first Little Steven album, Men Without Women, is the finest album the Asbury Jukes never made. Like the Jukes best work, Men Without Women blends the muscle and swagger of Jersey shore rock & roll with the horn-fueled heart and soul of classic R&B, and here Van Zandt was willing to push himself further in both directions at once. With a five-piece horn section blazing throughout featuring Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg leading a crew of former Jukes brass players and former Rascals Dino Danelli and Felix Cavaliere on hand, this album's blue-eyed soul credentials are unimpeachable, but Van Zandt's guitar and Jean Beauvior's bass speak with the sound and fury of a true roots rock rebel. While Van Zandt's songwriting was always impressive, Men Without Women's best moments expressed a degree of passion, vulnerability, and determined fervor he hadn't quite permitted himself in the past he also began to express the political concerns that would dominate his later work on "Under the Gun", and if Van Zandt was a less precise vocalist than "Southside" Johnny Lyon, the gritty sincerity and emotional force of his performances more than made up for it. On Men Without Women, Little Steven & the Disciples merged the brassy swing of a classic Motown side with the sweaty blare of a amped-up garage band, and if that sounds like an odd combination, in both soul and garage rock, commitment is what counts, and Little Steven had that to spare -- along with a set of really great songs.

    If you Love the Jersey sound

    This has always been one of my favorite albums. If you like early Springteen, this one is for you. There isn't a song on this album that I would skip over. The arrangements are dynamic and Steve's raw voice lends perfectly to them. Heavy on the horns , very similar to Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes (in fact, Steve wrote alot of those songs for Johnny.) Hoping that one of these days, Steve will get those Desciples back together, and make another album. Every time I listen to his songs, I remember one of my fondest moments, leaning on the stage at the Roxy in LA. Steve and the Desciples playing all of my favorite songs - HEAVEN

    This album is AWESOME!!!!

    I'd already known 2 tracks off this album - ''Inside of Me'' from The Sopranos ST, and ''Forever,'' which I'd gotten off the Internet after reading the lyrics on the official Little Steven website. As soon as I'd heard ''Forever,'' I knew I had to get this CD. I'm a huge fan of Springsteen, Van Zandt, and Weinberg, and I figured since most of the E Street Band was in the Disciples of Soul, I couldn't really go wrong now, could I? I was right. This album is amazing! Earlier in the day, I'd read an essay that Van Zandt wrote (and the man is one hell of a writer) saying that people don't listen to whole albums anymore (the ''disposable pop'' phenomenon). Well, not true with this one. There's not a bad song on here. It has a very oldies-music feel to it, which is yet another reason I instantly fell in love with this CD. But I think the main reason is Stevie's vocals and lyrics. I don't quite know how to describe it -- sometimes music and lyrics and vocals just all come together in the right way and stir up something inside you.... There's such passion in them that you just can't help but be moved by it.... Bruce's ''Thunder Road'' does that to me every time, and so does this album.
