Chicago Sun Times proclaimed "THE WEIGHT carries on where THE BAND left off."
 

The Fathers Are Gone But The Sons Carry The Weight Now -- Admirably
BY JOHN APICE
The Weight Band - World Gone Mad

"This is excellent. This is shades with haunt and shadows of the original Band. Lyrically, vocally, musically – all coming together eloquently and performed wonderfully. This sent a shiver down my spine." -No Depression

"by the end of the album, I was convinced that this was a labor of love and something optimistic and viable and worth having if you're a Band enthusiast. "

"Weider and Grebb pull a rabbit out of the hat with “Big Legged Sadie.” This is excellent. This is shades with haunt and shadows of the original Band. Lyrically, vocally, musically – all coming together eloquently and performed wonderfully.
This sent a shiver down my spine."

"a bonus track written by the first track’s writer’s Jim Weider and Colin Linden is a live performance of “Remedy.”Wow does this sound like The Band in its finest condition? This is a trip. May even be better than original."

"I hope this band sticks around long enough to treat us to more slices of the music The Band originally planted their notes in Americana soil for. The Weight Band waters it every day to keep it in bloom. That’s commendable."
