All Music Guide - Bob Gottlieb
To say that the Subdudes are back is an understatement that doesn't do this disc justice, because this is not a return, but a solid progression. They returned to recording in fantastic form after a nearly nine-year hiatus. The resulting disc has the trademark harmonies, the warmth the group exudes, the strong songwriting, and the rich soul-felt mix of music, all of which have always been characteristic strengths of this group. Their music is a thick gumbo of New Orleans musical traditions: gospel, funk, roots rock, and blues. The music still comes to listeners without any drummer, but with the whole band adding to the percussion. Their sound is warm and close to you; it ...

They returned to recording in fantastic form after a nearly nine-year hiatus. The resulting disc has the trademark harmonies, the warmth the group exudes, the strong songwriting, and the rich soul-felt mix of music, all of which have always been characteristic strengths of this group. Their music is a thick gumbo of New Orleans musical traditions: gospel, funk, roots rock, and blues. The music still comes to listeners without any drummer, but with the whole band adding to the percussion. Their sound is warm and close to you; it comes both from the songwriting and their strong harmonies. This incarnation includes three of the original bandmembers -- they are the Subdudes' main strength, providing the intimate songwriting that characterizes the group and serves as the backbone that helps set the Subdudes apart. Tommy Malone, Steve Amedee, and John Magnie are the original members and the songwriting triumvirate. Gone is Johnny Ray Allen the bassist, replaced by two musicians, Tim Cook vocals, bass, and percussion and Jimmy Messa bass, guitar. If you didn't know them before, be prepared to walk away a fan, and with a smile on your face. They know their strengths and they know how to make a record that always seems to be warm, intimate, and made just to put a happy mood in your mind.

    Love it....simply love it!

    Been a Subdudes fan for such a long time and was depressed that they had decided to call it quits. In the interim, the Dudes were able to provide some solace until the Subdudes came back into view. Thanks to their website for the advance notice. I will never miss an opportunity to see a live show with these guys. They are back and better than ever.

    It's GREAT to have them back!!!

    I have been a fan of these guys for many years. I've heard several of these songs a few times as they have performed them at live shows. This album goes back to their roots and the music that put them on the map! Welcome back, guys!!

    They're Back!

    I have only heard the new single from the Subdudes first new album in years, but you can tell they are back. That great one of a kind sound is there. I know the rest of the album will be up to that great caliber of music they create!!!!
