CRITIC REVIEWS

Beats Per Minute

The Last Soul Man has given us another soul classic, but in an unflinchingly modern package.

83
A.V. Club

While The Bravest Man In The Universe bears little surface relation to Womack’s best-known music, it is—like “Stylo”—in line spiritually with what Womack’s all about.

musicOMH

The album posits Womack as a restless spirit, ever expository, invigorated and emboldened by age and experience. 

80
Consequence of Sound

The strongest moments of The Bravest Man in the Universe brought me to tears. 

70
The 405

Bobby Womack's time has come once again, and he's still got it.

70
Under The Radar

Few voices have been able to reach the emotional heights of Bobby Womack's, and he infuses The Bravest Man in the Universe with every ounce of his lost time

70
PopMatters

Although not quite the greatest release that Womack’s name has been stamped on, The Bravest Man will, with some luck, serve as a pleasant and uplifting gateway to Womack’s imperative back catalogue.

Pitchfork

While The Bravest Man is a skeletal affair with the spotlight keenly trained on Womack's cracked vocals, it doesn't attempt to sound like "classic" Bobby Womack, for better or worse.
