EDITORS’ NOTES

Even for an artist renowned for muscular blues rock, Joe Bonamassa’s 12th outing is noticeably heavy. He swaps out his beloved Marshall amp for a Fender tweed, lending his solos considerably more sting, and beefs up his rhythm section by incorporating double drummers. The full force of the band is felt on a title cut built from choked wah-wah and a pounding, Zeppelin-style groove. On “Distant Lonesome Train,” Bonamassa cranks up the tempo with viscous locomotive riffs. Just as thrilling is “This Train,” which boasts a rollicking shuffle caked in vintage Tulsa grit.

Another master stroke

This is what happens when a virtuoso guitarist and musical genius like JB continues to evolve. This album is way different from others but textured, nuanced and quite lovely.

There is really no one out there writing music like this and nobody on earth who can night after night totally floor the folks that pack the venues he routinely and consistently fills.

If you really love modern guitar music with roots he wasn't necessarily born with, but managed to extract from the great players of the age of classic rock and British blues, listen to his stuff and you will be hooked.

The other really cool thing about JB that while he and Kevin Shirley are experts in the studio, his playing live onstage is even more thrilling and even more inspired and emotional if that's even possible.

I love this album. Can't wait to see him play it live.
