4.0 out of 5 stars A Change of Direction
A bit different to his earlier cds,less straight blues and a heavier feel. When I first heard it I was a little bit surprised and disappointed,but after about four or five plays it has started to grow on me,and now I think it is an excellent album. The one disapponting track for me is sung by Kid Rock,but overall it is a great rock album,even though it is definitely a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not great
The Place You`re In is Shepherd`s fourth album and in it he`s departed from the blues/rock of the previous three and produced instead a set of US Rock Radio freindly AOR tunes. Now, that`s fine if you like that kind of thing, but so different from his other albums that he appears to be aiming for an entirely new audience and could easily lose many of the fans he already...

The Place You`re In is Shepherd`s fourth album and in it he`s departed from the blues/rock of the previous three and produced instead a set of US Rock Radio freindly AOR tunes. Now, that`s fine if you like that kind of thing, but so different from his other albums that he appears to be aiming for an entirely new audience and could easily lose many of the fans he already has. He appears to have already pre-empted such criticsm in the track "Ain`t Selling Out", which basically says if you don`t like me, tough luck. The second track sounds like it was written and performed by Lenny Kravitz and the rest meld into one another to form a largely unmemorable mass off remarkably similar tunes.
Perhaps the seeds of this change were sown in earlier albums with tracks like Slow Ride and the bombastic Oh Well, so if you liked those you may well enjoy this.
With KWS leaving the blues behind and Jonny Lang allegedly going Heavy Metal, there may be some tough times ahead for good old fashioned blues/rock.

Bought the albun on the back of listening to Kennys earlier stuff, good driving blues rooted rock.
This new album has lost the blues influence as well as the vocalist making it less apealing to me.
Its basicaly a rock album thats ok, it didnt inspire me in the same way as the Live on album.
If your a blues fan forget it. Rock on.

The one disapponting track for me is sung by Kid Rock,but overall it is a great rock album,even though it is definitely a huge change in direction from his first two albums

This review is from: Place You're In [Us Import] (Audio CD)
Years waiting for a new album from the young guitar slinger.Vocalist Noah Hunt was always a huge plus for the KWS Band, and a little trepidation was felt at the news of Kenny singing. No need to worry though, the boy done good. Many reviews have slayed Mr Shepherd for his vocal stylings, and sometimes he does sound alot like Lenny Kravitz, but is this a bad thing? The album kicks off with the fantastic Alive, and rattles along at a great pace, until the traditional instrumental at the end, replay! It is a great album. Personal favourites are: Alive, Place you're in, the Gospel/Skynyrd Hey, What do you say and both tracks featuring Noah Hunt are fantastic. If you like real music, played and sung with feel, buy this album.(God, I sound like my Dad!)

There some really good stuff on here on kennys venture into the rock domain . The track that instantly grabbed me was song 3 "Spank " It blew me away,Kid Rock guested on here,its catchy sing along rock,should have been a single.I kept thinking Ive heard this before,Kenny Wayne Shepherd is never afraid to try out different styles of music,Noah Hunt kennys useual vocalist does guest lead vocals on couple track,should really have made more of him here,Still its a good effort with not quite the same impact as his bluesier albums.
