So slowly the Brit is outgrowing the Bluesrock Wunderkind image. Not only because "Hurricane" is now his ninth album, but also because of his age of 32 years. In contrast to his previous studio album "Just As I Am" (2010), which was recorded in his twenties, "Hurricane" on the one hand seems even more complex and ingenious, on the other hand the horizon of Danny Bryant widens more and more. The blues has long since become the basis or starting point for his finely spun rock ballads such as "Can't Hold On" or the grandiose title track, which can't get out of your head after just one listening session. Starting with the opener "Prisoner Of The Blues" Bryant's Ninth (seven studio works, two live albums) is his most constant and accomplished work to date. The mixture of balladesque melodic material and uptempo numbers is just as right as the song approach. Although Bryant, whose father Ken plays the bass as usual, becomes a powerful guitar witch live, in his studio the song always stands before the instrumental virtuosity.
