AllMusic/Jason Ankeny: “The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s obsession with
the Rolling Stones continues unabated on the brilliant Take It From the Man!;
where the group resurrected psychedelic-era excesses on the previous Their
Satanic Majesties’ Second Request, here they jump further back in time to the
Stones’ mid-’60s period, with even more superlative results… the BJM is a group
that believes in killing their idols, and their intensity begs the question: just who
is the World’s Greatest Rock & Roll Band again?”
Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: If you talk about the crème de la crème of psychedelic
music it would be a disgrace not to mention the BJTM. The psych-junk-gang
led by the acid son of Brian Jones’ ghost. Hands down!
