First time I heard this CD was at one of my friends house, in a break from playing guitars. I was impressed by the way all the different "components" of the music just fitted together.
The second time I heard it was at home after I bought the CD. I turned the volume up and WHAM! The music instantly hit the center of my head and it loved every bit of it.
After hearing it, I heard again and I started noticing his style, and it hit me that this guy must have heard Stevie Ray Vaughan alot. Many of the bends have the same feel and emotion. Then I looked at the cover and saw that he was only 21 while recording it. This is amazing! A 21 year old already playing stuff I only though SRV could have done. I looked at his webpage and it turns out that he was one of those gifted children. And that he warmed up for BB King. WOW.
To say a little bit about his style, I can say it's a bit harder than SRVs. A bit in the direction of Johnny Winters. And sometimes even a bit harder. I don't mind that. Johnny Winter is also among my favorites..
The reason that I don't give the CD the shiny 5 stars, is because you can't hear it over and over at max volume. After a while the bass starts ringing in your head. That never happened with SRVs good ones for instance..
But if it only needs to be heard once a day or so it is a definite 5 star..
I can't wait to see this guy live.
