"It amazes me that this recording only had two reviews written about it before my own. In my opinion, it is a landmark southern rock album. Marshall Tucker's debut album was great, but I feel this sophomore effort surpasses it. Every track on the album is great, but I feel four in general deserve special mention. The first track on the album, in my humble opinion the best Tucker song, is "A New Life". Doug Gray belts this one out as if his life depends on it. Track 3, "Blue Ridge Mountain Sky" also deserves special mention. The fiddle really gives this song something extra. To round out the four,"You Ain't Foolin' Me" and "24 Hours At A Time, are both classics. If you are a lover of southern rock, heck, rock in general, pick this one up. It easily stands with the best the Allman's, Skynyrd, or any other southern band has to offer."

"A New Life, Blue Ridge Mountain Sky, You Ain't Foolin' Me, 24 Hours At A Time and Fly Eagle Fly is just the thing for a great long ride through the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's probably the best MTB album there is. Absolutely wonderful!"

"Like the "Brown Album" by The Band, MTB`s New Life is an album of uncompromising beauty. A combination of rural southern beauty, Americana, country blues, and their own brand of Jazz/ Rock fusion, this is, I believe, everything that The Marshall Tucker Band embodied. The title song is a beautiful tale of a person who having done his time dreaming of going home to a woman who always told him she would be there. There`s Blue Ridge Mountain Sky, sung with the feeling that can only come from living in a place where the skies are blue and life is slow and easy. There`s also good old rockers such Another Cruel Love and 24 Hours at a Time. A CD that will make you smile and shake your bottom."
