Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: The music is incredible, and through interviews with Rosey Grier, Afrika Bambaataa, Questlove, and a squadron of old-school studio musicians, director Dan Forrer unearths some of the hidden history of American pop.

- Chris Packham, Village Voice, Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Fresh: This improbably fascinating documentary will be manna from heaven to pop culture devotees.

- Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Friday, September 13, 2013

Rotten: The film offers disappointingly little insight into the music itself.

- Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, September 12, 2013
