Buddy has still got it...and then some!!!!!

"I have been a Buddy Guy fan for many years. I have seen him live and I have been to his bar in Chicago. I have a big collection of his cd's and I am not sorry I purcahsed this one! I really like it even if it is maybe not as rockin'as his others. And it's NOT heavy metal. I think Buddy gets better with every cd he puts out.Of course this isn't my favorite, but I enjoy it all the same.He wrote only 2 of the songs. "Heavy Love" is kinda funky--good song.I really like "Sat Night Fish Fry"---I like his songs that are a little funny and this one is different than his usual style. Song #7 is slightly retro maybe even Motown sounding??? but I like that one too. I am glad I bought it. If you are a true Buddy Guy fan, you'll like it too."
Eh...

"Losing commercial ground to young blues rockers Johnny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Buddy Guy hired their producer David Z (!) and set out to record an album of rock, soul and loud, frenzied blues rock.

Did you notice that I didn't include "blues"?
Well, that's because this isn't a blues record. Sure, Guy covers "I Just Want To Make Love To You", but in an organ-laden funk-rendition, and most of this material, while not excactly bad, is pretty forgettable. And honestly...a ZZ Top cover on a Buddy Guy record?

If you want to hear the reigning kind of Chicago blues playing generic funk and rock, "Heavy Love" is a dream come true. If you prefer him to play the blues, stay far away from it.
2 1/2 stars."
Old blues man shows the world how it's done.

"A blues legend who can hang with the best of them!The man proves he hasn't lost a step,and why he has inspired so many of the greats(SRV and Eric Clapton),and up and coming(Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd).I do have to say his albums are great, but is much better live."
