Guitarist and singer Marcus Malone has put a lot of effort into his new longplayer. Not only does he sing powerfully and emotionally like hardly any other current blues musician, no, he has also recorded twelve incredibly creative songs. Dirty blues rock in the style of ZZ Top at its best ("Can't Stop Lovin' You"), cool classic rock riffs dominated by his slide guitar ("Living The Blues" - heard here in two versions), pleasantly catchy ballads with the Hammond and a harmonica for variety, and powerful blues-based rock ("Ain't No Telling") are crowned with thrifty but to the point solos, sparingly but brought to the point.
