I've just received my copy of this CD, and it immediately ranks among my favorites. I particularly like tracks 3 "Riding The Blues", and 8 "Finding My Way Home", primarily because they follow the traditional slow & soulful blues style which has always appealed to me; however the entire album is superb.

Sadly Snowy recently announced his retirement from performing with his own band (although he continues in Roger Waters' touring band) with a couple of shows in Europe.
This is a fine album. Oh to be able to play a guitar the way Snowy does - that Goldtop really does sing. Beautifully played and sequenced almost like a gapless concept album, it's a real treat that should be listened to in its entirety each time. "Another Story Told" is my favourite and it's hard not to reach for the repeat button after the way the solo rounds out the song.
I hope it's not the case, but if this is also to be Snowy's last recording in his own right it's a cracking swansong.
Has anyone ever seen Max Middleton not wearing a hat?

Snowy White's latest (2011) CD 'Realistic' is a great listen, with lots of fine new songs, along with great musicianship and guitar work.
First impressions were good, and the sequence of the tracks on the album 'gel' together very nicely.
The real measure of satisfaction is to still be listening to the album continuously for weeks in the car, on the daily commute to and from work, as each song continues to deliver new perspectives.
A fantastic CD highly recommended!
Favourite tracks so far? Well, 'Ongoing', 'Riding the Blues', and 'Another story told'.

knew nothing about this guy until i had seen him on the Rogers Waters DVD and decided to investigate. Read other reviews and went for it. Bit of a risk, but I like taking risks with music and this paid off..........
This is seriously gorgeous. Melodic and sooooooooo laid back, sublime blues that floats over and around you. Music that makes you stop and listen, melt into the groove. Oh yes, I love this and if this is a reflection on his other stuff i'm going for the full back catalogue, RIGHT NOW!

Excellent album from Snowy, one of his more mellow albums that maybe does not have tracks that stand out as some tracks on his other albums (Keep Out We Are Toxic, No Faith Required), but I found this album to be the best from start to finish, whereas his other albums tend to have some weak moments.
