4.0 out of 5 stars The Next Big Thing?, 21 Oct 2013
If you like hard-hitting guitar-driven Blues/Rock, then you'll love this. An up-and-coming name, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he becomes the next major name in the field.

I bought the album and have loved it ever since. Why Joybringer wasn't on the album, I never understood as, based on Holst's 'Jupiter, The Bringer of Joy' as it was, (the first if not only time that Gustav Holst's estate gave its permission for his work to be used) it inspired the theme of this album. Thankfully, the single is now relocated with this body of work where it belongs. As an album, it is a very,… Read more
