This album really is a master class in how to keep modern blues fresh and relevant. Matt's playing and tone are truly excellent and he is happy to move outside outside the standard blues conventions in his writing without losing the roots of it all. I love the way his songs will not always take the predictable next chord but be inventive and move off on a tangent that just takes then to another level.
There is some really excellent song writing going on here.

I started listening to a streamed version and was transfixed and immediately purchased the album I was so buzzing at the end of it.
The last track 'Red Dragon' is just a monster.

What an absolutley amazing band. Superb vocals from Noni Crow (think Maggie Bell meets Steve Marriot) and the thickest soupiest monstrous guitar tones from her brother Austyn hit you between the eyes like a crossbow-bolt and pin your head to the wall until you've listened to the final track.

A superb rhythm section underpins what is without a doubt what is one of the best 'rock and roll' albums I've ever heard. Easily up with the very, very best of the Black Crowes. Truly ballsy rock and blues for lovers of bands like Humble Pie, the Faces etc.

Utterly brilliant!

A Great film, but the version advertised is by Slam Dunk Media and has a 4:3 letterbox aspect ratio. The print quality (or digital transfer) is poor with compression artefacts resulting in a grainy and unfocused finish.

Frankly it looks a mess on my 32" Sony Bravia TV so I recommend avoiding this particular release and instead keep your eye out for the true widescreen, digitally remastered version of the film (which I believe is included in the the region 1 release of 2003 film "The Truth About Charlie")
