It bowed at No. 1 on the Independent Label chart in April and spent 15 consecutive weeks in the top 50 of the Billboard 200.

Follow-up single "I Ain't The Same"is currently in the Top 20 at Triple A radio. NME called Alabama Shakes a "genuine, word-of-mouth, go-see-them-then-tell-10-friends-how-amazing-they-are thing." The New York Times' Jon Pareles praised their "fervent, rip-roaring rock and roll" and SPIN observed: "The band's 23-year-old singer-guitarist has quickly established herself an audacious presence...everything pivots on that mighty, aching voice."
