Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A well-meaning but overreaching documentary that strains to make a Theory of Everything argument about power and powerlessness in America. Ultimately, it fails to convince about much of anything."

"Pleasant but pointless, "Re:Generation Music Project" is a commercial in search of a product."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Recalls It Might Get Loud in capturing an experiment done for no reason other than to see what happens when creative minds smash together."
‑ Matt Pais, RedEye
"The film includes a disappointing amount of the mutual-admiration fluff that show-business types traffic in; everyone thinks everyone else is great and blah blah blah."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"The process recorded by helmer Amir Bar-Lev holds attention with its peek at the widely ranging personalities, work methods and expertise demonstrated by musicians of different generations and varying experience."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Music fans of all stripes should appreciate Amir Bar-Lev's entertaining documentary - and in fact, that's the very idea he's aiming for."

"An astounding exploration of the corrupt media that has shaped today's society into a mindless behemoth that knows more about Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton than it does the C.E.O.s who have made greed into a "positive" trait."
‑ Brandon Judell, indieWIRE
