iTunes Review

There’s blues-rock for rowdy roadhouse escapades and blues-rock for nights when grim loneliness plagues the soul. Sloe Gin is the latter. Restricting his searing electric guitar work to the occasional accent, Joe Bonamassa leans on his acoustic for a batch of tunes that reveal his talents as an introspective storyteller. In terms of sheer pain and vulnerability, the record unloads some seriously heavy moments, like when Bonamassa cries, "I’m so damn lonely, and I ain’t even high" on the stunning title track.

Customer Reviews

Modern Blues Classic

Much of this album will be a class act in JB laying down more slick work with him developing his voice at the same time.
The title track will become an all time Blues classic. Modern take on a tried and tested formula, but he brings such atmosphere into this piece it stands out. Get it if nothing else for this track.

Still His Best

I'm proud to own all of Joe's solo albums. It's probably not fair to compare his solo work with that of Black Country Communion, his latest band, because they release quite different products. That said, I don't mind admitting that I much prefer the solo releases. And of them all, this album just contains so many memorable songs that it is easily my favourite.

The first six tracks are superb, with a beautiful blend of tempos, consistently jaw-dropping guitar work and a great voice. I know Joe's vocals receive criticism from some quarters, but for me they work perfectly in the context of blues rock. And then hidden away towards the end, we get the golden nugget that is 'Richmond'. Wonderful. Buy it - you'll love it.

At age eight, he opened for B.B. King, and at age 12, he was playing regularly around upstate New York....
