I got love, love, love for this

I didn’t think they’d be able to follow up Men Amongst Mountains - which is one of my 🐐 albums - but they really did. I’m on my 10th spin and the soul just oozes out of every track. They are such a talented band and Mr. Shaw absolutely delivers lyrically and performance-wise track in and track out .

Touché! Swamp jams at their finest.

As an ardent fan of The Revivalists since 2010--when I fortuitously stumbled upon one of their shows on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans on an oppressively hot Saturday night in August--this album makes me very happy. By and large, the songs on Take Good Care are merrier than the songs on Men Amongst Mountains (with a few exceptions). Where Men Amongst Mountains is moodier and edgy (and one of my all-time favorite albums), Take Good Care is more buoyant. The shift in tone might be jarring for those who aren't able to see The Revivalists live consistently, or for those hoping for a duplication of MAM, but I find The Revivalists' ability to pull off both sounds impressive--and it is something not many bands/songwriters can do, and do well.

The album is a pleasure to listen to, start to finish, and it commands repeated listens. I probably prefer the more raw production of MAM, but I also can't blame the band for wanting to explore. Even when I first listened to MAM, it was an adjustment hearing studio versions of live favorites, and not all the songs spoke to me at first. On TGC, immediate standouts for me (excluding the pre-released songs) were You Said It All, Oh No, and Celebration. Other songs I initially felt lukewarm about I have since warmed up to, such as Next To You and Other Side of Paradise. In my opinion, the band's roots are still on full display here, and this album is a welcome addition to The Revivalists' varied repertoire.

A great album for all

There are sounds in this album for everyone ranging from hard rock to pop. Any song on this album could’ve been their next big hit, “All my friends” “ other side of paradise” and “change” are awesome songs that prove the revivalists have depth and can continue to make music for years to come.
