A reviewer from stated, "This is another in a series of solid, R&B-soaked Sacred Steel albums, each a little better and more focused than the last, that further cements the pedal steel's - and Robert Randolph's own - musical place both in and outside of the church."

It's a blend of rock, funk, soul, jazz and good old jamming-what Randolph calls a true music art form scene where you can just be who you are.
