“[...]the impetus of Country Funk isn’t historical accuracy or even critical rehabilitation. Instead, it intends primarily to be a badass playlist, an alt-universe Nuggets that flirts with kitsch but crams its tracklist with unexpected ideas and flourishes, unlikely filigrees of grit and invention.” 8.4, Pitchfork.com
