The Early Buzz:

“The title track is a standout in a record full of strong songs, with the 30-year-old Nelson taking on the role of sage, looking for a way to bring people together in this era of division.”

-The Associated Press

“Nelson conjures a power-pop-leaning song cycle that seeks a better way to live with dollops of Southern gospel and slinky R&B. The band mixes Levon Helm’s funkiness, Leon Russell’s cagey musicality and Tom Petty’s ardor.”

The Nashville Scene

“The album features everything from soaring wall-of-sound arrangements (the Roy Orbison-inspired “Where Does Love Go”) to wildly fun country-rock throwdowns like the joyous twin-guitar jam “Civilized Hell” – a duet between Lukas and his dad Willie.”

– Rolling Stone

“A fantastically heady album of topical, existential numbers that fuse road-dusted Americana with eastern sounds, rocksteady grooves and other unexpectedly eclectic jams, seamlessly melded by the band’s potent communal chemistry.”

– Flaunt Magazine
