This album was bought for me as a birthday present by one of my oldest friends, who each birthday we look for some interesting blues or slightly outside the genre albums for each other. I'd not ever listened to Kelly Joe Phelps but was very pleased to enjoy this album on a bit of a road trip to the coast and back. Its very spiritual, quite gospelly in parts and features some beautiful solo guitar playing and some great vocals. I particularly liked "Guide me, o thou great Jehova" which is a lovely bluesy take on this traditional hymn loved by the Welsh. I loved the album and will be exploring more of Kelly Joe Phelps' work. Great stuff

I loved Kelly Joe's first three records but then he `progressed' away from blues, gospel and folk and from playing slide guitar to more contemporary sounds featuring a band. Although I admire him for trying to push the envelope and leaving his comfort zone, I'm happy to report that this album sees him returning to both slide guitar and blues and gospel, very much in the style of `Lead me on' - he also revisits "I've been converted" from that album. The playing and Kelly Joe's voice are once again superb - totally original, understated and simple but deeply moving.

At long last Kelly Joe Phelps is back playing slide, albeit bottle-neck instead of his famous lap slide. Stylistically it's a return to the gospel-infused blues of "Lead Me On", his first and (in this reviewer's opinion) still his finest album.

KJP has found religion again, and there's a quiet, gentle earnestness that underscores everything here. This time, apart from on the two instrumentals, it seems as if Kelly Joe is content for his guitar to remain merely a backing instrument and, consequently, there are fewer instrumental pyrotechnics than might have been expected, which some long-time fans may well bemoan.

The song titles tell you all you need to know about where this one's headed. KJP is in fine voice throughout on an introspective album that rejoices in the wide open spaces that it leaves almost as much as in the sounds it creates. It's the perfect soundtrack to those still, quiet moments that provide an escape from the craziness of the outside world; man and guitar as one, searching for the light.

The album lacks the gut-wrenching heart-on-its-sleeve emotion of "Lead Me On" - this is altogether gentler fare, as demonstrated by "I've Been Converted" which is a disappointingly inferior version to the stirring rendition on that debut record. But overall, this is a welcome return to form after some curious recent left turns by this artist.

I've followed KJP since hearing Lead Me On many years ago and it's great to hear that gorgeous slide again. Some of the lyrics are too religious for my tastes but at least it proves that the devil doesn't have all the best songs. Looking forward to seeing him tour this album too.

A great CD by an amazing artist. If you like acoustic blues and haven't heard Kelly Joe Phelps check him out on YouTube, his style is pretty unique but remains true to the blues tradition. He has produced several CDs but this one is, in my opinion, up there with the best of his work. A true one-off in terms of both vocal and guitar playing style.
