    A more polished and less primal prospect. ... Nichols' dusty acoustic fingerstyle and burnished voice shares little of Eric Bibb's barbed eloquence, and the album grows angrier as it unfolds. [Nov 2021, p.75]

    He tells a sad story but one enlivened by his skills as a guitarist, his expressiveness as a singer and his insights as a lyricist. ... Every song has at least one line that will stop you in your tracks, some songs two or three. [Nov 2021, p.18]

    Especially refreshing in this city, the player lets his modern blues simmer and smoke, avoiding pyrotechnic blister. Somber and guarded, opener "Lost & Lonesome" pins the simple tools behind most of the album – evocative acoustic guitar, barely there percussion, and Nichols' wisely pleading voice.

    Stripped back and raw, his mesmerising guitar front and centre, this is gritty old-style blues with a laser-sharp modern focus. [Dec 2021. p.86]

    Wonderful traditional blues album with lyrics that provide a insightful view of the hopes and despairs of life. The guitar work is reminiscentWonderful traditional blues album with lyrics that provide a insightful view of the hopes and despairs of life. The guitar work is reminiscent of such legends as Albert King and the voice sounds much older and thicker than Buffalo appears in person. Give the record a listen if looking to expand your blues horizons. Full Review »
