CD Reviews

These Guys Deliver Quality RocknRoll
Joseph P. Darak Jr. | Gallup, NM United States | 01/16/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a Djay for a comeback radio show. It's always hit & miss checking out all the comebacks of older bands. This one was a big positive surprise. I like their sound now better than in the 60's, with the exception of the masterpiece"The Letter." The first 4 tracks of this album are super. Wang Dang Doodle is a great blues song that I liked by Koko Taylor and the Box Tops do a terrific version of it here. As I was listening to the album and enjoying it all I thought that the only thing I hoped they'd do is put a more hard rockin jam song in tthe mix, and then they gave me just that with the last track of 6 minutes called Big Bird. I play this album quite a lot and have played 9 of the tracks on my radio show. I've gotten very good feedback about the songs. The Box Tops are still touring and one more album would be nice. This is a great addition to their catalog of great music."
Great songs, great spirit

"The band has chosen great songs and performs with infectiously high spirits. This album does not revisit the Box Tops; rather, it frees them to truly enjoy the music without the constraints imposed on the band in the '60s. It's looser than Alex's recent solo work, but in the same general vein. Highlights are "It Tears Me Up" and "Flying Saucers Rock and Roll" and "Big Bird" and...forget it; they're all good."
This CD Rips

"The Box Tops new CD, and may I say first release in many too many years, recaptures those same good time feelings that seemed to permeate the late 60s. The music, mostly covers, is exceptionally well executed and Alex sounds more focused than he has in years. If you were the Box Tops fan that I was ( if you're over 45 years old how could you not be )you owe it to yourself to get a copy of this new recording."
