Dust Bowl

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
For his second solo album in a year -- not counting his excursion with Black Country Communion -- Joe Bonamassa, the hardest working blues-rock guitarist of the 21st century, strikes up a bit of a smoky Black Keys vibe, signaling that he's not quite as devoted to the past as he may initially seem. It's not the only trick he has up his sleeve, either. Appropriately enough for an album entitled Dust Bowl, Bonamassa kicks up some country dirt on this record, enlisting John Hiatt for a duet on the songwriter's "Tennessee Plates" and bringing Vince Gill in to play on the lazy shuffle "Sweet Rowena." These are accents to an album that otherwise sticks to Bonamassa's ...

These are accents to an album that otherwise sticks to Bonamassa's strong suit of blues in the vein of Cream, Stevie Ray, and Gary Moore, but it's just enough of a difference to give Dust Bowl a distinctive flavor and suggests that the guitarist's constant work is pushing him to synthesize his clear influences into something that is uniquely his own.

    Incredible album by an incredible Blues guitarist!

    "The best guitarist you have never heard of" has been said many times about Joe Bonamassa. Nowadays many HAVE heard of him and those who have are huge fans. This latest album shows his diversity and range of talent with songs ranging from country to classic blues to one previously recorded by Streisand. He leaves his distinctive mark on them all, yet stretches his wings and shows off new ideas. I'm having a hard time picking a favorite track. Slow Train, Dust Bowl, Meaning of the Blues all take you straight to Blues Heaven. Last Matador cries so sweet. Whale that Swallowed Jonah picks you up and swings you around. John Hiatt, Glenn Hughes, Vince Gill and Beth Hart join in on vocals but Joe's voice outshines them all. Try this album if you are new to Bonamassa, it is a must have for those already fans. And if you ever have the chance, you have to see this man live on stage. He puts on an incredible show.

    Astonishing!

    I love this CD. Bursting with gut wrenching blues and screaming rock. He just keeps getting better and better. "Last Matador of Bayonne".is songwriting at it's best.
