Exclaim! Magazine - "The Underground Divas" (Independent) By Brent Hagerman May 07, 2004:
If the Stones composed an entire album of songs that sounded like "The Girl With Far Away Eyes" and "Dear Doctor,” and maybe got John Prine to contribute a few tracks about women he'd like to get to know biblically, the end result wouldn't be far off the Underground Divas' first release. With tongue never far away from cheek, the Underground Divas [of Montreal] jostle and bounce through 18 honky junk extravaganzas. Paying homage to Bible-thumpin' lovers and carnival bands with acoustic and steel guitar, mandolins, harmonica and piano, this ramshackle country folk band have hit upon several near classic songs that might just end up becoming saloon and campfire favourites. Judging by the beauty of tracks like "Baby Doll,” "Oh Me! Oh You! Oh My!" and "Am I your Man?" the Underground Divas are certainly a band to watch[.]
