Nibble Man

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
Although Lee "Shot" Williams is nominally a modern blues singer, the smooth sounds of Nibble Man are mostly straight-up R&B of the '70s-style deep soul variety. The Chicago-style "Nothing But Party Blues" and "That's Really What the Blues Is All About" end the album on a suitably rootsy note, but up until then, Nibble Man lays out the slow jams one after another, with the proto-rap testimony "Ease on Down in the Bed" also here in a cleaned-up "radio version" thrown in for variety.

This is not a criticism; anyone but the most hidebound blues purist will recognize that this brand of smooth but never slick or lightweight soul is exactly right for Williams' bearish growl of a voice. The arrangements occasionally sound a bit cheap in their over-reliance on contemporary synths and drum machines, because tunes like "I Gotta Go Home So I Can Get My Freak On" really require the full Barry White treatment, with strings and horns alongside fat wah-wah guitars. Look past the disappointing arrangements, however, and Nibble Man is a good lascivious time for all.
