“Tough urban blues with lyrics to match delivered in a style that’s as sharp as James Brown’s footwork and as solid as Alcatraz… reminiscent of those Stax-era Albert King and Little Milton songs with Booker T on keyboards.” John Clarke, The Independent (UK)

“It’s time for the blues boys and girls to sit up and take notice. The men are back”
4 stars (out of 5)
R2 – Rock’n'Reel Magazine (UK)

“…a rock-steady band nail the grooves and Taylor’s timely flourishes provide a serious injection of blues gold. This confident, decade-spanning rhythm’n'blues is swimming in vibe”
Guitar & Bass Magazine (UK)

“A Boost For British Blues… we hear blues in the best Chicago tradition, but also British beat: it provides a nice varied mix of both worlds. The Motives prove that they belong at the top of British blues”
Heaven Magazine (NL)

“…typically British Blues rooted in the 60s. Handmade for friends of Clapton & Co, a must have!”
Jazz Podium Magazine (DE)

“a paradise for fans of rhythm’n'blues and blues rock… the blend of individuality and team spirit is what makes this album truly remarkable” (DE)
