AllMusic Review by

A stunning revelation conjured by the profound gifts of Stephen Thomas Erlewine and Chris Woodstra is revealed within the grooves of the duo's only release, Hole in the Kitchen/Gospel. Preferring the moniker Who Dat?, Erlewine and Woodstra have come up with one of the most incredible documents ever heard by any set of ears, completely singular in its vision to the extreme and rare event where no comparison/contrast can be made without tainting the justice this release demands. The A-side, "Hole in the Kitchen," breathes tribal fervor with a subtle air of finesse that is capable of re-routing the conceptions of rock & roll for overeducated music snobs and the pop culture masses alike. "Gospel" proves that "Hole in the Kitchen" is no fluke, then adds religious dementia and pulchritude that should be considered the undeniable argument: Who Dat? reserves the wisdom and honorable authority to successfully claim leadership of a new world order.

Unfortunately, this debut from Who Dat? saw such a limited release that its incredible influence only reached a few devoted advocates, yet it rendered a fevered cult (in the purest sense of the definition) whose agenda includes training the public to better appreciate Bob Seger.
