All Music Guide - Philip Van Vleck
Greeson's sophomore project for Earwig is a hot item. Greeson wrote every song on the album -- an extremely unusual accomplishment for a female blues singer -- and the material gives her the opportunity to showcase her stylistic range. Greeson fits right into the time-honored blues tradition of sultry women singing sexually charged tunes with a great deal of feeling.

Greeson fits right into the time-honored blues tradition of sultry women singing sexually charged tunes with a great deal of feeling. Her music is the hard stuff: late-night, roadhouse blues for adults. She can burn down a slow blues like "Those Kisses" with the same moxie as she belts out a hard-hitting Chicago blues tune like "Quit Doggin." Greeson has also written a very effective topical piece, "Walking on Eggshells," which addresses the touchy issue of spousal abuse. Her performance on "Reefer Woman" is a languid bit of naughtiness that is one of the highlights of the CD, as is her clever double-entendre tune "He Left It in His Other Pants." Greeson is a notable blues singer and a veteran of the Chicago club scene. This release has everything it takes to carry her reputation far beyond the Windy City.
