CRITIC REVIEWS

Paste

It’s a monumental return—pure, unfiltered American rock ‘n’ roll—and has to be considered one of the party albums of the year.

A.V. Club

Meat And Bone is largely a success, even if its less-focused second half feels a bit rote.

Pitchfork

The Blues Explosion barrel through the album's 12 tracks as if they have no legacy to uphold, no expectations to live up to, and nothing to lose. 

65
The 405

Meat and Bone is exactly what you might expect from the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – nothing more, and definitely nothing less. 

60
Drowned in Sound

Against such a strong back catalogue, Meat and Bone looks set to go down as an addendum rather than a milestone.

60
Consequence of Sound

For diehard fans, Meat + Bone is a long-awaited return to the wild side, with the Blues Explosion offering up all the mutated musical goodness as you can stomach.
