  • Of all the heartland-based "working class rockers" of the 1970s and '80s, Bob Seger was one of the most consistently credible and satisfying. Not only did he brandish a muscular classic rock sound, but he was a talented songwriter, giving equal emphasis to rebellious electric barnstormers and melancholic, thoughtful folk-tinged tunes. Seger's spotlight may have faded by 2006's FACE THE PROMISE, but that doesn't mean any of his power as a singer, songwriter, and performer had diminished.
  • Seger's gruff voice sounds as weathered and gutsy as ever, and his status as an elder statesman hasn't led him to turn down his amplifiers a single notch, as the pounding title track and "Wreck This Heart," the album's opener, prove. But one of Seger's great strengths has always been his reflective, acoustic-driven songs, and "No Matter Who You Are" and "Won't Stop" deliver on that count, demonstrating that even after all these years Seger still has his touch.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.84) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Bob Seger's first album in more than a decade excels at stout, lucidly sung rock-soul-blues-gospel..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.77) - "The Midwesterner's new disc highlights his unadorned, plainspoken style, best experienced on rugged blue-collar ruminations like 'Wreck This Heart'..." -- Grade: B
