With Eamonn McCormack in-akustik sends a promising candidate into the race for the Bluesrock Cup, which is currently still held firmly in the hands of The Brew. With "Heal My Faith" the album unfortunately doesn't start quite so original, because the stanzaic riff reminds quite strongly of Jimi Hendrix' "Voodoo Chile". Afterwards the Irish guitarist and excellent singer can convince with independence. Solid blues rock ("Voices In Your Head", "Rock'n'Roll"), a wonderfully soulful cover of Phil Lynotts "A Night In The Life Of An Old Blues Singer" (better than the original!) and another tribute to a fellow countryman ("Shadow Play" by Rory Gallagher) he presents with plenty of pressure without losing transparency. And the following original compositions, all full of ideas Blues rockers, confirm the quality of the album. Hopeful!
