    No embarrassing side-project, Let Them Talk turns out to showcase heartfelt and sensitively handled musicianship from one of our finest all-round entertainers.

    Aficionados may balk at an actor trespassing on sacred ground, but even they'd have to admit, that for a white, middle-class Englishman, Hugh Laurie plays a surprisingly convincing bluesman.
  3. This is another acting job, in a sense, and Laurie's faux-Southern drawl grates a little, but he's assembled a band of N'awlins old hands to add authenticity.

    To his enormous credit, Laurie never sounds like a dilettante among this group; he holds his own, working his way into the marrow of the songs, playing credible piano throughout the record.

    What a terrific first album from an incredible man. Even though I'm not very into blue, I can totally argue that Hugh's album changed my pointWhat a terrific first album from an incredible man. Even though I'm not very into blue, I can totally argue that Hugh's album changed my point of view immediately. His voice suits the music so great, the way he plays the guitar and piano... He's such a unbelievable master. A real surprise from start to finish, some excellent arrangements of real blues Tunes. Full Review »
