"...this is a super blues album to get 2010 underway with even more fireworks than were let off at the stroke of midnight on News Years Eve." -- Maverick 4½****
"Blues/Rock guitarist Danny Bryant roars into the New Year with his best effort yet. `Just As I Am' is an apt title for the big toned guitarist who leads his powerful trio through nine tracks that incorporate powerful licks, soulful grooves, mellifluous ballads and of course Danny's undiminished fiery passion". -- Get Ready To Rock 4½ out of 5 stars

'Shut Out The Light is a good rocking opener, but it's when 'Blues For Buddy' kicks in that the album really takes off. It's a straight down the middle Blues tune, but the passion just spills out of the speakers. I can live without much of his balladry, but when there's a funky beast like 'Every Time The Devil Smiles' just around the corner, then it's a small price to pay.
There's eight new Danny Bryant compositions here, alongside the sole cover, a take on the John Hiatt song, 'Master Of Disaster' and he's still got Trevor Barr on drums and his Dad, Ken, on bass, and they down a fine job of holding down the groove.
The best two songs are saved for last, with the slow Blues of 'The Hard Way' featuring a surprisingly good vocal, something the young Master Bryant seems to have been working on. Things then end with the right minute epic, 'Alone In The Dark', possibly the best song he's ever written, one that has an evocative, Snowy White style flavour, dipping in and out of moods and styles, to tremendous effect.
The CD opens with upbeat chord slabs, Danny's gruff vocals and a short but liquid solo on Shut Out the Light. Blues for Buddy recalls Stevie Ray Vaughan in 12 bar mode - a driving beat - with full-on solos. A more laid back approach kicks off For the Last Time, building to a slow-burn solo. Every Time the Devil Smiles stomps along with stabs of wah-wah and a controlled, yet powerful solo. Just As I Am, the title track is a slow blues with Danny sharing his broken dreams, topped off with a lengthy impassioned solo that wails, wails and then wails some more. This number competes with Alone in the Dark as the album's best. Master of Disaster, a John Hiatt penned number about a "master of the Telecaster who can't play it any faster when he plays the blues" - might just be referring to Danny's guitar style. Day by Day with its Robin Trower style intro slips into a slow blues with the wah crying as "there's no comfort in this glass". The Hard Way has a nice rising guitar line that builds to the lightning solo. Acoustic strumming starts off Alone in the Dark, all broken hearts and hard times with full-throttle Stratocaster fills and a killer solo - possibly the best on the album.
Watching Danny play live is a study in full-on passion and this studio album and Black and White are performed with similar passion and with additional rhythm guitar to fill out the background to pleasing effect.
If you like blues /rock in the Stevie Ray Vaughan, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa , Water Trout style then give this album a listen and then go back and pick up Black and White particularly for Between the Lines and Any Wonder - more great guitar based blues/rock.
Go and see Danny live for living proof passionately performed guitar blues rock is very much alive.
46.11 minutes of passionate howling guitar for the price of a CD. Bargain!
It takes a lot to impress Me as I have studied different Musician's styles of playing Guitar. Bonus is Danny is a great Singer too. Enjoy
Anyone who is interested in this type of rock genre (and anyone else who isn't) should go out and buy this excellent offering - buy it you won't be disappointed.
If you don't like this album then I wish I could offer you your money back!!
'Just As I Am' features eight new songs with the opening power chords on 'Shut Out The Light' setting the standard for what is to follow by rocking you to the core, whilst the blistering guitar on 'Blues For Buddy' helps pay tribute to Buddy Guy and some of the great blues legends. The melancholy ballad 'For the Last Time' cools down proceedings somewhat before a track echoing the great Robin Trower... 'Every Time The Devil Smiles' brings everything back to the boil, paving the way nicely for the compelling title track 'Just As I Am' that overwhelms you with one lead break after another. A well executed heavier version of John Hiatt's original 'Master of Disaster' makes a welcome addition to the album and leads us into the haunting melody of 'Day By Day', a sad story of despair that is also given the Trower treatment. Next up is a track that finds the RedEyeBand in full flow with Danny singing of lessons learnt 'The Hard Way'... a real heartbreaker! The last track 'Alone In The Dark' is a tragic tale of loss written by Danny Bryant following the deluge caused by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans that moves you to tears... a slow burning classic over eight minutes long that arguably takes its place alongside such classics as 'Stairway To Heaven' and is without doubt worth the price of this album alone... quite simply awesome!
'Just As I Am' just about sums up where Danny Bryant is in the blues/rock world today... up there with the very best!
