"Jim James & The Damn Shames, too, offer road-tested rhythms and restless songs from James Travis. Their urgent performances are popular, and their debut album confirms that these Damn Shames are anything but."  — Charles L. Hughes - Isthmus 07/14/06

"Jim James & The Damn Shames and MaeRae were both 2005 MAMA (Madison Area Music Awards) nominees for Best Americana Artist and Best Americana Album; having them both on the same bill makes winners out of everyone who loves countrified rock. The Damn Shames' version adds measured amounts of rockabilly and blues: James Travis' voice invokes a Midwestern Lyle Lovett, while a distinctive stand-up bass and twangy guitar deliver roadhouse atomosphere..." — The Onion (Madison, Wisc.)
