Review Text Who would have ever guessed spirituality could be so multi-faceted? The debut effort by this top-notch cast of Austin musicians, including longtime Lucinda Williams ally Gurf Morlix, is stompin', rockin', bluesy, soulful, rousing, and rustic at once. This is gospel with a wide appeal, from an amazingly fresh version of Curtis Mayfield's soul standard "People Get Ready" to a storming run through the traditional "True Religion," which has all of the visceral impact of the early-20th century gospel heard on collections like American Primitive, Vol. 1 (Revenant Records). The group even takes on that Blind Willie Johnson knee-trembler "John the Revelator" with enough panache (and slight Caribbean flair) to make it their own. The bluesy "If I Ever Get Right" is a fine Imperial Golden Crown Harmonizers original. ~ Erik Hage
