Guardian

A stubborn charmer whose life was a magnet for tragedy, Hall is the emotional centre not only of the Muscle Shoals sound but of this film.

The movie is more a collection of cool people telling great stories than it is a structured documentary (despite Camalier's attempts in that direction). But in this case, that's enough.

Groucho Reviews

The lightning rod figure here is Rick Hall, "the founder of the music business in Muscle Shoals"...At 80, Hall remains sharply opinionated, and his extensive recollections give Muscle Shoals its spine.

As personal as the film gets, it never becomes overly sentimental or nostalgic; rather, it's a celebratory work alive with simple pleasures.

Occasionally baggy, always sincere, this is an essential document of a defining era when 'soul' really meant something.

Greg Camalier's debut feature offers a worthy if sometimes ponderous take on a significant slice of U.S. popular music history.

What makes the documentary Muscle Shoals so fine besides a kicking soundtrack? Well first, there's its deep sense of place.

Muscle Shoals may not appeal to every generation's musical tastes, but for those of you who love that sweet soul music and crave that ol' time rock & roll, believe me: It's just the ticket.

In the debut documentary of Greg "Freddy" Camalier, it's a toss-up as to which is more magical -- the physical place of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, or the music it produced.
