  • Summary: The Frenchman releases his latest album of blues music.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. Mojo
    80
    In catharsis lies energy, and this, ultimately, is a very joyful, uplifting album. [Nov 2008, p.108]
  2. Uncut
    80
    If only all music was this fun. [Nov 2008, p.102]
  3. It's unfortunate, then, that the veteran Seasick Steve is making bigger waves with a similar sound.Nevertheless, while Cavalli's thunder has been stolen, lightning remains in these woozy, boozy stompers that aren't unduly burdened by the familiarity of howling winds and the obligatory appearance by the Devil.
  4. It isn't a disaster by any means--well-recorded, enthusiastic sounding songs are always a treat--but it's in the end pleasant, not striking.
  5. Cryland is, for the most part, a collection of psyched-up blues riffs that underpin lyrics full of anachronistic clichés about old-time religion and various other tried-and-true topics about which people sing The Blues.
