AllMusic Review by

For their major-label debut, Omar & the Howlers were trimmed down to a trio, but that didn't decrease their power. If anything, the group sounds leaner and meaner. Hard Times in the Land of Plenty is one of their finest releases for this reason -- it's a rough and tumble collection that is driven as much by fine original songwriting as it is by the band's edgy sound.
