Re: Gary Clark Jr.
I just got into this album over the past weekend. My wife brought home a copy from the library. Hearing the tunes confirmed my opinions after watching him on ACL here a few months back. The guy's got groove. I can't get tracks 1, 2, and 7 loud enough in the car. Even the other tunes which are more unusual or creative, I find them entertaining as well. It is nice to see that he hasn't painted himself into a box with his writing. His guitar playing, albeit understated, is still packed full of soul without going over the top. His vocals are smooth and mellow at times as well as having all the power and oomph needed when it's needed. I will also agree that his double live disc is fantastic. GC Jr is quickly becoming a go to fave for my morning commute.
