Promising but not there yet

"Like "We didn't see you on Sunday" this album shows promise but doesn't quite deliver. Mainly because of a couple of weak tracks which detract from the record. Personally, I think it falls short of the emotional intensity and unashamed machismo of "If I don't six", Mule's last record. But if Long maintains his independent attitude and the band hones the brilliant combination of Hammond Organ and loud guitar, and if they continue to draw inspiration from Bernie Worrell, and build on the best tracks here, the band is going to be huge."
Awesome offering from an up and coming songwriter

"Of the hundreds of records I've heard this year, "Push Me Again" by P.W. Long with Reelfoot renewed my hope that there are still unsung heroes out there singing and writing with fervor and soul-searching integrity. With intelligent, witty and sensitive observational talents up there with Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Alex Chilton and the downright dirty, funky lyrical musings of Andre Williams or George Clinton, P.W. Long mixes it up like a super-tall, super-strong shot of backwoods moonshine, doused with aching libido and passionate soulfulness, then sets it on fire. Call it roots-rock, punk rock, alt-country, funk, blues, Americana or alternative, but it's inventive rock & roll at its manic-depressive best. Swinging from intense, poignant ballads which highlight his gift for distilling cliche-free emotion, through raucous blues-funk footstomps to a powerful and precise headbanging visit to his punker days in Mule, P.W. Long seems to soak up life experience and an exhaustive record collection, then extract the muse straight through his soul, no filter. This guy obviously plays because he has to, and it's a good thing for music that he does."

"Nowadays, when seemingly every band has to have ironic intent, damn few actually rock anymore. Reelfoot is first and foremost a rock band, the best goddamn college town roadhouse band you will ever here. How do they sound? An angry NRBQ or a Flat Duo Jets fronted by Alex Chilton or a funkier Clutch. And they do it with nary a wink. They a re some serious sweaty MFers. The album is great"
