This album is very different to "shake hands..." and takes a bit of playing to get used to it, but grows on you and has some varied and interesting tracks. I particularly like - "Snakes..", "Sugartown", "Lord..", Storm" "Leavin'" and "Mud". The tracks have a slightly lazy feel about them and the slide is nice, though a little too economical and laid back at times - but in the right mood I might be more receptive. In Summary - not as fresh and vibrant as "shake hands..." but more gritty and riffy than the Solaris tracks I've heard.

If you are thinking about buying this album after listening to the excellent "Shake hands with shorty" then don't bother. Its not a bad album but has none of the raw blues power of "Shake hands with Shorty" and comes across as a little bland because of it. Too many of the tracks are over produced and leave you wishing for a something with more of raw, dirty edge to it.
I know NMA were aiming for more of a modern rock sound but the result is too middle of the road for my liking. I'm going to stick with going down south where the chilly wind don't blow.

This album when first heard is a very different to what you would expect from the Allstars. It's not as jingly jangley and Shake hands with shorty. 51 Phantom has bit more grunt. The guitar work on it is phantastic, though some of the songs do lack substance.
A very good follow up album that after you have listened to 3 - 4 times will reside in your player for weeks.
Well Done NMA!!

not as immediate and groove ridden as 'shake hands' , the album seems to split itself between blissed out southern ballads and distortion pedalled boogies a la Led Zep, ZZ Top - slide guitar isn't as prominent but they still play the blues with an unrivalled feel and verve.
