Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.110) - Ranked #47 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "...Coltrane soars with nothing but gratitude and joy. You can't help but go with him..."

Rolling Stone (11/14/02, p.91) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...John Coltrane's A LOVE SUPREME is one of the most compelling, spiritual testimonies in the history of jazz..."

Rolling Stone (12/26/02, p.114) - Ranked #2 in Rolling Stone's list of 2002's "10 Best Reissues"

Q (10/95, p.136) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...a four-part affirmation of religious faith, and simply one of the most influential records of the '60s. It's challenging and intense, but an essential and ultimately very beautiful album..."

Q (4/99, p.129) - Included in Q's list of "The Best Jazz Albums of All Time."

Uncut (2/03, p.91) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Stormy jazz from the height of the New Thing..."

The Wire (12/02, pp.51-3) - "...A LOVE SUPREME is marvellously self-contained....The dignity of A LOVE SUPREME has not been compromised and it has never sounded better on CD..."

Down Beat (4/8/65) - 5 Stars - Excellent - "...Coltrane's artistry is evident in his never permitting tension to overcome its counterpoise, release....[A LOVE SUPREME] is a significant album, because Coltrane has brought together the promising but underdeveloped aspects of his previous work; has shorn, compressed, extended and tamed them; and has emerged a greater artist for it...."

Down Beat (11/95, p.73) - 5 Stars - Excellent - "With the power of prayer fueling its invention, half the universe's choice for desert-island disc still sounds novel....Trane's rolling discourse managed to be simultaneously menacing and sublime..."

Vibe (12/99, p.160) - Included in Vibe's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century

Mojo (Publisher) (1/03, p.106) - "...A LOVE SUPREME remains a remarkable, challenging listen...It's the definitive version of a definitive moment..."

NME (Magazine) (10/2/93, p.29) - Ranked #36 in NME's list of the `Greatest Albums Of All Time.'

Pitchfork (Website) - "A LOVE SUPREME, recorded with what was later called his classic quartet, is Coltrane's musical expression of his 1957 epiphany. It's the sound of a man laying his soul bare."
