Well, the USA may well have found itself reduced to an AA+ rating on the world's financial lending markets - but they certainly still have triple A rated guitar driven music coming out of their shores - and "How I Go" is yet another very tasty example indeed! And, while I may well be rather biased in my view of this talented musician, you cannot deny that this latest studio release, while long overdue, still cuts this man way above much of the current crop of blues oriented guitar slingers.
Firing off with a Stones inspired "Never Looking Back", followed in quick succession by "Come On Over" and a good rendition of Lennon's "Yer Blues", KWS states very firmly that he means business before showing his gentler side in "Show Me The Way Back Home" And then we are back on track with "Oh Pretty Woman" driven by an aggressive guitar which easily rivals Gary Moore's version but has the sublime vocals of Noah Hunt to take it a level higher too! But it's the powerful "Heat Of The Sun" that showcases both KWS's guitar and Noah's vocal abilities that is the crowning glory of this album all topped off (at least in this "non-special edition") with the instrumental "Strut"
Truly, there are no bummers within this album (not that I would ever expect any) - so, worth the 7 years wait?? YOU BETCHA! If you're into electric blues or blues oriented, guitar driven rock, then this has to be a MUST for your collection!
