Reviews:

1. AllMusic - Ann Wickstrom
Larger Than Life is every bit as good if not better than Hill's first three albums on Alligator, opening with a powerful blast of a cappella harmony. Equally as strong is Hill's slide playing throughout, with additional guitar support from Living Colour's Vernon Reid. The songs are divided into four categories: Love & Lust, Tales From the Hood, Shuffling Into Commitment, and At the End of the Day. Hill -- always the storyteller -- again champions the cause of the downtrodden and wrongly accused. "Monticello Nights" details Thomas Jefferson's affair with slave Sally Hemmings -- now that's taking on a contentious topic. Hills' voice has the familiar comfort of an old friend, creative guitar licks abound, and -- best of all -- the songs stay with ya.
