To me, Robben Ford was a name that popped up in guitar magazines with amazing regularity, and SuperNatural is the first album of his I bought. Needless to say I expected to hear blues/jazz crossover guitar solos, and there are plenty. What I wasn't ready for was the level of song writing. It's hard to sum up the album - there are some great upbeat funky bluesy songs that immediately jump into your head as if they've always been there, but there are also some soul searching ballads that sound so accomplished I wondered why I hadn't heard more of this artist on the radio. Vocally he reminds me of a cross between Bill Withers and Jamiroquai and guitarwise....well, far too much going on to say anything so trite. If you like any blues or rock or soul at all, you wont regret buying this. It's the genuine article.
