  • Summary: If you think the concept of a guitar-drums blues duo from Detroit sounds a bit, well, familiar, consider this: Soledad Brothers guitarist Johnny Walker allegedly is responsible for teaching the White Stripes' Jack White how to play guitar. This is the Brothers' third studio LP.

  1. Right now this frazzled trio are the true sound of Detroit - confident, smart and absolutely essential.
  2. Way more inventive than the garage-blues hordes. [Sep 2003, p.111]
  3. Amazing how this old-fangled stuff can still sound so good.
  4. 80
    Familiar, sure, but a highly potent blend of the ancient and modern nevertheless. [Sep 2003, p.98]
  5. 70
    They've got groove, feeling, and they regurgitate these moods and riffs with the same gleeful spirit as did the people they're nicking 'em from. [Aug 2003, p.99]
  6. If you're looking for a wild blues party, Voice of Treason isn't quite it, but if you want to hear musicians who can respect their influences while kicking it out, then the Soledad Brothers are right down your alley.
  7. This is a pretty uninspired piece of work.
