9/10 David (April 21, 2007)
This album shows a lot of George\'s slide guitar skills and strong songwriting. \"The Lord Loves The One\" is so fun and has that Dylanesque wryness to it, what a treat! For me, this is one of the best post-Beatles albums from the Fab Four. Perhaps I\'m misanthropic as well, but I happen to share Mr. Harrison\'s disappointment with the ways of the world while being horrified that we all have play a part in that.
8/10 Bruce Beatlefan (March 25, 2006)
The early 1970\'s was unquestionably an era of unparalleled spirituality in its popular music, with mainstream hits (Ocean\'s \"Put Your Hand in the Hand\", Norman Greenbaum\'s \"Spirit in the Sky\", Pacific Gas & Electric\'s \"Are You Ready\"), with mainstream artists issuing outspokenly religious themes (Dylan, Clapton, Townshend), and with the rise of a new genre, Jesus Rock and Roll (which became Contemporary Christian Music and folks very close to my heart...Keith Green, Larry Norman, 2nd Chapter of Acts, etc.). George Harrison was certainly one of the vanguard of this movement, and this album is a master work--perhaps the only \"Contemporary Hare Krishna\" album you\'ll ever find.

Of course, Harrison comes in with a pretty formidible musical pedigree, and the music in this album is consistently good even for the listener disinterested in matters spiritual. The album may be a slight disppointment for someone wanting to hear George rock (only \"Sue Me Sue You Blues\" and the title song rock, and pretty mildly at that), but the melodies, the guitar work, and (in particular) the vocals reflect George Harrison in absolute top form.
10/10 BeatleBeatle (April 2, 2005)
Still some of his best music, and probably his strongest post ATMP effort until Brainwashed.

If you know this album you can review it.
