Stellar Album

First off, Sweaney has the voice of a classic, true soul singer.
His guitars are always vintage rich and seem just about ready to eat you.

The song "Heavy Problems" will make you cry. Not because its a sad tear jerker but, because he means it.

I suggest buying this record and playing it on a stereo with a tube amp

A good Saturday night with this = reason to love music

Good ol' Sweany

There are a lot of good tunes on this ablum, I enjoyed the whole thing. Definitely recognizable Patrick Sweany, but great variety, great blues licks, good album! He's got a sound that reminds you of the rawness of a live performance at a hole-in-the-wall blues bar somewhere.

Heart-stopping Southern soul from a Northern immigrant

Ohio native and Nashville immigrant Patrick Sweany makes rootsy sounds that are out of place on Music Row, but will be welcomed in the home of anyone who likes a side order of the ‘60s with their rock, soul, and blues. The album rolls through Southern soul, vintage rock ‘n’ roll and anguished R’n’B, dovetailing punchy production with memories of Delaney and Bonnie, Arthur Alexander and the throwback sounds of Marshall Crenshaw. The bass, drums and rhythm guitar bolster the melodic howl of Sweany’s voice; his singing is edgy, pleading, and emotionally raw from blue disappointment. The nostalgic “Rising Tide” hits a ‘70s rock groove that might have belonged to Bad Company, but the deep bass, funky horns, vamping organ and guitar figures of “The Edges” return the listener to the Memphis that Dan Penn laid on the Hacienda Brothers. The tour de force ballad “More and More” is given the Otis Redding treatment with hard percussive stops, while the acoustic plea “Frozen Lake” is gut-wrenching in the blue-soul of its romantic apprehension. Sweany is well-known as a guitarist and songwriter, and he bolster each accolade here, but it’s the deep well of emotion in every vocal that will make this record stick in your heart. 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
