Well I guess they haven't really been away but separate projects for both Stevie and Alan have restricted their live playing to a one a year tour.The new Cd was recorded in texas last Autumn and safe to say it is a corker.Lots of great new songs connfirm that the mighty Nimmos are rocking as hard as ever.Stevie is in fine voice and Alan's guiar playing is more incendiary than ever.Having listened to the CD non stop for the past week I am loathed to pick outstanding tracks but 'Never gonna walk on me' and 'Living Again'really hit the spot.The Bros are out on tour in April 2012 so make sure you don't miss them.

At the heart of The Nimmo Brothers are the guitars and vocals of Alan and Stevie Nimmo, musical siblings from Glasgow who first came to the attention of the modern blues world with The Blackwater Blues Band and the album Breaking Out the Blues.

And since the critically acclaimed Nimmo Brothers debut - 1998's Moving On - these particular blues brothers have produced quality product, including album number two Coming Your Way and the acoustic album New Moon Over Memphis.

But Brother to Brother, their fifth release and sixth overall, is their best slice of gritty modern blues rock to date.

The only problem is while they are deservedly acknowledged as a premier act on the blues/ blues rock circuit (and are not exactly unknowns at blues festivals in Europe and the US), they have never made a major impact on the mainstream rock charts or radio stations.
Certainly not in a way their music so loudly and clearly deserves.

`Still Here Strumming' is almost a blues rock comment on that very situation, while also acting as an antidote for current-climate woes and musical face-fitting fashions.
It's a feisty opening number, setting the tone for a guitar-led energy that reverberates throughout the album and embedded in numbers such as the hard rock-edged `Lady Luck' and the gritty, heavy blues rock of 'Coming Around Again.'

The slow rocking blues of `Never Gonna Walk On Me' hearkens back to the sound of Paul Kossoff and Free and that classic band are formally acknowledged by way of a punchy cover of `Wishing Well.'

There are also nice changes of musical pace and weight on display.

A good album but, having bought some of their previous albums, not quite what I was expecting. Gone is the gritty blues rock and in comes american soft rock, hardly surprising I suppose as it was recorded in the states. The majority of the tracks are in comparison with previous Nimmo Brothers offerings, smooth and lacking emotion. It's hard to believe that they come from Glasgow and not America.
As a fan of edgy Blues Rock I am extremely disappointed with this album. Alot of the tracks could easliy be by any number of really good soft rock bands from the states - great if you like that type of music.
They do a competent verison of Free's Wishing Well but whats the point and the last track could easily be by the Fabulous Thunderbirds and it is very good... but I wanted the Nimmo Brothers.
4 stars if you like soft rock, 2 stars if you like blues rock.

Having seen the Nimmo brothers and King King realy pleased that this CD turned out to be what I expected, great, must be one of the best 'blues brothers' in the UK, anybody who has not seen them go to one of the gigs and I am sure you will leave with one maybe two CD's or take my word and buy online, if you do not like it I will buy from you.

The Nimmo Brothers are rightly regarded as a top notch live act on the Blues circuit as Live at the Cotiers Theatre bears more than ample testimony.

Brother to Brother equally demonstraates their ability to write, craft and deliver first rate music in a studio. The album may have been recorded in Austin Texas but the brothers Nimmo have clearly not lost their roots, this is no american blues slaving.

As ever with Alan and Steve Nimmo the guitar playing is tight and exceptional, at times inspired but never reaching OTT levels, there is always an element of less is more and the rest of the band dovetail perfectly.

The album spans a more than decent range of songs that immediately fall into the blues category, together with some that slide equally into the rockier territory, Sneaking Up On You being a case in point. Many would shy away from attempting to cover anything by Free but not The Nimmos and their rasping version of 'Wishing Well'is a stonker in my opinion.

Never Gonna Walk On Me is another stand out a heavy driving riff that is not unlike classic Free or even cruising ZZ Top. Their more tender side comes to the fore on 'Waiting for my Heart to Fall.' Shift down the gears drop the pace and you have a typical Nimmo Brothers blues ballad. Heartfelt vocal combining with some sensitive string paly, really lovely.

A great album where The Nimmo Brothers and their band members prove all the years of hard graft and experience really do pay off. I look forward to seeing them live again this Autumn but in between times Brother to Brother has got me by.
