    Ultimately, comparing For True to Backatown is pointless: they are of a piece. While you may prefer one over the other, they are, in essence, two parts of a compelling and dynamic musical aesthetic that is firmly in and of the 21st century, as they look back at history and forward to create it.

    Despite this motley bunch, the album's sound hasn't become a random genre gumbo.

    [He] delivers more flavored Creole soul and a host of guests, including Kid rock, Jeff Beck, and Lenny Kravitz. [23 Sep 2011, p.79]

    Shorty here offers an explosive blend of funk, blues and jazz.
  5. Loud guitars are everywhere, bucked by riffing horns, and the general vibe is testosteronal and sleeveless. He is a rippingly good player.
