OK so, theres this guy from america, and he sits there hitting a bass drum with one foot, and playing a slide guitar while yelling out of a full faced crash helmet. You think im joking? Wrong, he is all too real, and absolutely fantastic. If youre not smiling after listening to this then you havent got a face. BUY THIS RECORD!!!
At first listen, this exponent of freaked out acid delta blues sounds monotonous and samey, but if you give it a chance Bob Log 3 will reward you with many varying riffs and rythmns that will hit you deep down and satisfy. Not for traditionalists but if you enjoy distorted slide guitar along with manic drumming in a chaotic delta blues style you'll love it.
Unfortunately this is a bit of a let down after seeing him live last year. His sound is quite repetitive but electrifying live. The album is very flat sounding in comparison. A shame as I was really looking forward to it. I'd probably still buy some of the other albums through dogged determination as I enjoyed him live. Footstomping stuff turned into foot tapping on the album. Go see him live is the best advice I can give as he and Nathaniel Rateliff were the best two gigs I saw last year amongst a lot of contenders.
