Joe Bonamassa is a musical genius, lets face it… If this album was stolen I would personally hunt down the theif with a carving knife haha! The most impressive songs have to be tracks 5, 7, 9, 10… Infact ther all just great! […]

The Escapist
Bonamassa has been producing modern blues masterpieces that will appeal to just about anyone with functioning ears. That wasn’t really hyperbole on my part either – unless you hate the electric guitar for some ridiculous reason like a certain member of my family does, it is damn hard to find fault with anything Bonamassa does.

OK, I’ll ‘fess up. In the past I have found a lot of Joe Bonamassa‘s output on the lumpen side. There, I said it. I feel a whole lot better now. So I wasn’t overly excited about this, the follow up to 2007’s Sloe Gin. But I’m delighted to say that this is an absolute belterand the best album Mr Bonamassa has ever produced. I can now consider myself converted to the cause. […]
