Overview

Although it's a little short on originality -- at times you could swear Stevie Ray Vaughan showed him exactly what to play -- Colin James' eponymous debut is an impressive collection of high-octane blues-rock that, at its best, explodes with the intensity of a keg of dynamite. James' forté is his speedy, accomplished guitar playing, which is breathtaking at times, and that's enough to excuse the occasionally awkward originals and predictable covers that pepper the album.. After all, good guitarists -- even ones that borrow heavily from old masters -- aren't all that easy to find, and sometimes you have to accept their flaws in order to embrace them.
