Critic Reviews

We currently know 11 reviews for "Notes Of Blue" by Son Volt. The album received pretty solid reviews among the critics and is one of the better ones this year.

"Farrar, with his ever-changing band, has been doing this decades, but it seems like by looking back further, he’s found a way to energize himself going forward."

80 % Dusted Magazine
"Son Volt doesn’t try anything fancy on Notes In Blue, nor does it need to. It simply puts the spotlight on the frontman and lets him knock every one of these songs high into the stormy skies and right out of the park."

80 % American Songwriter
"A brave, and welcome, transformation."

80 % The Independent (UK)
"Farrar’s a reluctant figurehead for the down there and downtrodden. There are no gilded towers here, no tyrannies of elitist plutocrats, just the open highway and a ride in an old boneshaker with an engine leaking hopes and dreams."

80 % Record Collector
"There’s gold to be uncovered here."

70 % Classic Rock Magazine
"Anguish is only half the tone, and its match is found--there is snarl and there is bite in Notes of Blue."

70 % Under The Radar
"Sometimes the electricity is there, and when it is it connects deeply, but when it doesn't it's hard to see past the banality of its structure."

70 % The Line of Best Fit
"Notes of Blue is a solid effort overall; here's to riding the wave of change and surprise as Farrar's songwriting continues to evolve."

70 % Exclaim
"After that opening salvo, though, Notes of Blue is driven more by stylistic immersion than a renaissance of Trace-level songwriting. While this results in the occasional lapse into bland formula (namely the joyless dirge “Midnight” and the drifty acoustic piece “Cairo and Southern”), Farrar for the most part sounds utterly invigorated by his new sense of direction."

70 % Slant Magazine
"The mix of blues, with their standard, folk and country is a nice addition, but may not be enough to win over folks who aren’t already Son Volt devotees."

60 % Blurt Magazine
"Committed fans and casual admirers will find Notes of Blue worth a listen, but ultimately this is the work of an artist who has done better with similar ingredients in the past."
