ReceptionEdit

Muscle Shoals has generally received positive reviews from critics. Katie Van Syckle of Rolling Stone remarked "But the documentary’s real highlights are the musings of the musicians who recorded there. Performers including Aretha Franklin, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Jimmy Cliff, Ed King and Steve Winwood reflect on what went into creating the magical environment and the legendary recordings that it spawned. Artists were not only prolific in Colbert County, but their recordings were often infused with a recognizable sound Camalier describes as a "funky, soulful, propulsive kind of groove."[3] John DeFore of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "The Next Must See Doc. A staple for Soul fans alongside Standing in the Shadows of Motown."[4] Film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 97 % of critics gave the film a positive review based on 69 reviews with a "Certified Fresh" rating, with an average score of 7.6/10.
