    Hellfire is a brilliant album with no weak cuts.

    He's a modernist at ease with mixing, matching and sometimes trampling as his heart dictates.

    Blues fans probably know Joe Louis Walker's work already, but if not, this is an excellent introduction to a talented performer.

    The album tries too hard to make its points, generally misplacing Walker's organic, rootsy appeal and obvious talents in the process.

    Walker is an exceptional blues artist at a time when there are few left, but on Hellfire, despite its volume, he comes off as frustratingly average.
