All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
It's the blues, Jim, but not as we immediately recognize it. Eddie Turner, who plays lead guitar with iconoclastic bluesman Otis Taylor, has an album that turns equally to rock and funk as it does to blues. And on "Sin," he simply turns in one of the most stunning pieces of gospel heard in years -- stripped-down, but with touches of hip-hop that offers a real way forward into the 21st century for the genre.

With this disc and thanks to impressive production from bandmate Kenny Passarelli and some incredible drumwork from Mark Clark Turner makes a very agile leap from sideman to exceptional frontman.
