“Still Got the Blues” is a good record. The eponimous song is just great, but the biggest part of the album is nothing but a faceless blues-rock, just a following some typical patterns. […]
This album is brilliant for 2 reasons: Firstly, Gary Moore makes brilliant blues musicand his talented guitar work means he can translate his powerful rock solos and riffs and put them into a traditional blues format, creating some masterful and original blues-rockand secondly, this album expresses some very diverse moods, from the triumphant highs, to the depressing lows, which makes for a perfect all-round blues-rock masterpiece, however your feeling, it can be optimistic or sorrowful. If you enjoy screeching rock guitar solos over the top of rythm and blues, this album is the one for you. […]
