"A must for Southern Rock fans, Southern Rock Review contains over 200 pages of album reviews, from the obvious, like The Allman Brothers Band, Marshall Tucker Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd, to Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, The Outlaws, and more. Popoff does an outstanding job of digging deep and providing factual information on lesser known, yet equally important groups like Cowboy, Doc Holliday, Jackyl, The Henry Paul Band and Point Blank. All of them are rated between a one and a ten, and in the eyes of this writer, Martin pretty much hits the nail on the head with his ratings."
Gritz Magazine

"Popoff reviews each band's entire catalog, going into interesting and smart detail about each album and putting the cherry on top with a rating scale number from 1 to 10. Every band you could possibly think of that might be even a little Southern rock (ZZ Top and The Georgia Satellites? Maybe, I guess.), gets attention in Popoff's book. Just like his 1997 tome, "The Collector's Guide to Heavy Metal," Popoff's opinions are sharp and funny."

"As for the book itself, it's the only one I know of that takes Southern rock seriously as a movement--and it doesn't quiver at doling out harsh truths as well, such as the self-parody of the recent Skynyrd output. Actually, I would have liked Popoff to have expanded his definition a bit (he did include an "If You Like Southern, You Might Like..." section in the appendix, which included all the bands that I wish he'd have fully included) but it was also brave to actually hold himself to the geography and include only bands that came from the South itself. Gutsy and idiosyncratic as Popoff always is, his writing reaches beautiful heights when speaking about the first solo Dickey Betts album, a gentle, delicate, unassuming work that reeks genius. Eat a peach, indeed. And buy this book.”
Jason Farrell

"As always, Popoff writes with hilarious amounts of knowledge and personality. His style of writing is his own, eschewing conventional grammar and sentence structure ("I've toned down" he says in the intro; yeah right) for another unique reading experience. My experience in the genre at hand is limited to the basics, and Southern Rock Review is a great help to getting my feet in the swamps to check out some more, with Canada's finest music journalist guiding the tour."
