Walter Trout - 'Blues For The Modern Daze' (Provogue Records)

Always a blue-collar bluesman at heart, Walter Trout's Blues For The Modern Daze is smart, insightful, and 99% to its core, displaying an undeniable populist viewpoint while retaining the guitarist's trademark turbocharged blues-rock sound. As a songwriter, Trout has never been better, and his voicing of his social concerns - bolstered by an unbridled six-string rage - is delivered with plenty of heart and soul. This is Walter Trout at his very best, and we should all be listening...
