Album Review

This wide-open heavy blues collection is the first release from Los Angeles power trio Mother Superior. Fans unfamiliar with the group might liken them most to fellow '90s blues rockers the Black Crowes, but The Heavy Soul Experience of Mother Superior has a grittier sound that is stripped-down by comparison.

The trio (consisting of Jim Wilson on guitars and vocals, Jason Mackenroth on drums, and bassist Marcus Blake) makes great use of Wilson's soulful voice and flailing guitar work that compliments their loosely pocketed rhythm section and solid material.

The more rocking numbers, like "The Wiggle," do more than hold their own, practically putting some legendary blues-influenced rockers like Bad Company to shame.
