    A bit slick, but that's Clapton since 30 years. Makes me want to play guitar myself again, which should be a plus!

    Sticking to his roots once again and choosing songs that show his intergity to the styles that have carried him through joyful and hardtimes. This album is a masterpiece! Clapton's vocals are prime here. In concert he will shine.

    As a slice of rootsy blues, it works nicely.
  2. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with this album - just the airbrushed production of tracks like James Taylor's 'Don't Let Me Be Lonely' robs them of any true grit and soul they might have had. And that, in a nutshell, is the problem afflicting Clapton at the moment, making for yet another average album to add to the list.
  3. A smooth and engaging affair, with consistently strong singing and playing from Clapton.
