This is the third release from the impressive Oli Brown, on of the plethora of talented blues artists currently recording for the Ruf label, which seems to have snapped up all the best youthful British talent.

His first two albums (well worth checking out, Open Road and Heads I Win Tails You Lose) were impressive, energetic and fiery workouts from a talented young man who is still maturing. This third release is a further step along his musical journey, starting to leaven the muscular blues rock guitar licks with a more reflective tone. But there's no boring introspection here, it's mature but it's still full on guitar slinging blues rock in the grand style of Stevie Ray Vaughn. As well as his impressive guitar, Brown is a pretty decent vocalist, sounding (to my ears at least) like the great Paul Jones. It's a perfect blend, and one of the most exciting albums of the year so far for me. 5 stars.

I've met Oli Brown several times, seen him perform since he was seventeen, already then a stunning talent and great live performer. Now 22 years old, and this his third album, and what a superb one it is. Recorded in Nottingham with his own very talented band. Produced by Oli and his drummer Wayne Proctor, who I first saw when he played for Ian Parker a while back. Oli's voice just gets better every time I hear him and on this album it's really matured and adds real depth and quality to his songs. Most of the twelve tracks on the new album are self penned, another area of real strength with him, plus a couple of covers. A couple of guest spots are included ,Paul Jones plays harmonica on one and the excellent Dani Wilde adds vocals with Oli on another. The band are tight right throughout this release, and Oli who has as long as I've seen him been an incredible guitarist ups the level yet again. Some of these songs I've heard him play live as he was preparing to record this new album, they sounded great then, but now well, they are very good songs indeed. Oli's won awards including band of the year and artist of the year in the Annual Blues Awards in 2011. This year this album will I'm absolutely convinced will be album of the year in an huge number of polls. this is a young, incredibly talented, extremely likeable guy producing some of the finest music in any caregory of music today. This album truly is a must have....BRILLIANT OLI JUST BRILLIANT

Great Third Album by Oli and co! Getting better and better. Great band behind him now, and songwriting really improving.
Favourite track is his cover of "I Love You More than You'll Every Know" ... amazing, haunting in places. Stunning.

PS Checkout a english Blues Rock band called "Snakewater", debut album produced by Grammy Award Nominee Chris Tsangarides (Gary Moore / Thin Lizzy / Judas Preist)
Saw these guys open for Oli once, and made my night. British Blues!

I have been following Oli since he was a young teenager playing mid set for Ron Sayer. I have enjoyed his journey and this album is a progression in his (expected) long career as a bluesman. I loved his previous 2 albums and and are well worth checking out, as they give a raw feeling to his work.
This album is a big step forward. Albums that stick with me forever are ones that on initial listening are good, but over the next few listens, dig deep into you soul. After a few listens this could well be one of those.
I am starting to hear the subtleties of fine writing, production and performance.
Interesting point is that friends who have had an initial listen, like different tracks, so it appeals to different people on different levels.
Wayne has done a great job in the production and Oli's voice is given the correct soundstage it deserves, with the overall tone/mix correct.
Some excellent reviews already and i concur with what they state, what i can add is two things
1.it gets better the more you listen to it.
2.it's even better live... check them out if you can, not many chances left on the UK leg but up coming Europe shows.
After listening to them live "Manic Bloom" and "Here I Am" are wonderful.
Buy this album (plus the other two, if you have not already) and say you were there at the start of the new British Blues revival.
GREATNESS AWAITS...Lets make it happen

Like the last album, there should be a second half to the title, and I reckon that's what it should be. The lad from Norwich has done it again; looked at the last album and stepped it up another notch. Still keeping the rockin' blues, but with the sure hands of Wayne Proctor on drums and production Oli has pulled off a storming and mature album.

The opening salvo, Here I Am, Oli lays down his manifesto, he's not trying to be another SRV, just himself. That's good enough for me. His guitar work is never in doubt, but he steps his vocals up several notches on the Don Hathaway cover, You'll Never Know How Much I Love You.

Rounding things off are a collaberation with Ruf label-mate Dani Wilde on Like A Feather and blues champion and supporter Paul Jones joins in on the fun with his harmonica on Solid Ground.

Even though most of the tracks were co-written by Ron Sayer who left the band before recording, Scott Barnes has stepped up to the plate on bass and backing vocals and fits in perfectly.

Now stop reading this and press the BUY button.....
