CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club
Eyehategod and Floor both came out swinging last year after long hiatuses, so it’s good to see Goatsnake return with similar verve.

AllMusic
This is an exceptional addition to Goatsnake's catalog; it's a doomsday boogie album for the ages.

No Ripcord

There’s not one tired moment, no obvious retreads to be heard.  It’s a solid third act, making good on the promises of (many) tomorrows.

PopMatters
Every riff here is a paean to the blessings of simplicity, a balm to anyone who fears that all the good power chord progressions have already been written.

Black Age Blues thankfully sees the end of the hiatus, and it is clearly apparent that Anderson has been stockpiling masses of killer riffs over the years, waiting for the right time and place to unleash them.

Pitchfork

Black Age Blues is strongest when it suggests that the members and their musical relationships have evolved during Goatsnake’s recess, especially when the past presents new stylistic tension.
