Album Review

Far too many blues-rock bands sound like Blueshammer, the hackneyed faux-blues band featured in a key scene from the film Ghost World, who serve up lame, uninspired riffs swiped from Jimmy Page, who himself swiped them from Mississippi Fred McDowell. In truth, Five Horse Johnson isn't really that far from this depressing prospect; their relationship to the blues is only slightly firmer than that of the White Stripes, and they sound more like early Black Crowes or '70s ZZ Top than Howlin' Wolf, or even the Eric Clapton-era John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers. On the other hand, ZZ Top and the Black Crowes are fine bands, and Five Horse Johnson have a similarly loose, lubricated sound, and devil-may-care attitude that puts across even the more pedestrian songs. At their best, as on the blistering "Sweetwater," and the more laid-back, -'70s-style choogle "Boogie Coalition Approved," Five Horse Johnson achieve a noisy rock and roll power that's far removed from the sterile "tasty licks" attitude that so many similar bands fall victim to.

Customer Reviews

excellent for anyone who is into ACIDIC BLUES or hardcore biker music.

another album from five horse johnson which has everything from the right attitude to the right bass you want..whether you are a hardcore biker or just a acidic blues or blues- rock fan..you will find each and every track very much to your taste....they are from ohio but sound like some southern or texas rock band. anyways tracks like yer mountain , bc approved, sawhill, soul digger, cherry red all of htem are great hits. enjoy them.

Straightforward Driving Music

I rate tunes on how they sound blasting out of my pickup truck's stereo. This one's 5 stars all the way! Simple, well mixed; it doesn't sound like 64 tracks mixed together (which gets lost in road noise). Put it in the CD player and drive 400 miles.
