Very exciting blues/rock guitar

"Axe virtuoso Verheyen--who plays in a variety of rock and jazz styles--shows off his rock-oriented blues chops on this fine album. He also proves to be a good blues singer and songwriter. (Robben Ford fans will love the playing and perhaps, as I did, find Verheyen quite a bit more soulful as a singer.) Styles range from Muddy Waters to Cream to funky rock/blues. Then, at the end of the album, in a great change of pace, Verheyen delivers a sensational (almost Jackson Browne-like) acoustic folk tune called Silence is Golden--which he finishes with some uptempo country electric guitar playing that is truly beautiful. This album is a genuine pleaser. Highly recommended. (PS on stars--I use four stars for very good albums like this one; I save 5 for the proven classics--"Graceland" and the like.)"
Slang justice, impressive guitar, my review from Barcelona

"Carl Verheyen is a major presence on the guitar, he began a lifelong study of the instrument at age 10.
May 1996 saw the release of Carl's third CD entitled Slang Justice, this blues oriented project prompted the best reviews ever. Guitar Magazine wrote "Slang Justice establishes Verheyen as one of the top modern virtuoso blues interpreters of our day." This record also marks the first time Carl's music is available worldwide. Also later in 1996, while working an average of eight to ten recording sessions a week, Carl still found the time to teach (CCR guitarist/vocalist) John Fogerty guitar lessons. In the fall of that year Rick Davies reunited Supertramp and Carl was asked to rejoin the legendary band. They recorded another classic `Tramp album entitled "Some Things Never Change," which went gold or platinum in many countries all over the world.
Talking about songs all of them are very very good,perhaps the two long songs the Funky-Blues "Spotty Herbert" and "Passing Through",are very good performed, but a little too much long, and I make honourable mention to the four ones and "Silence Is Golden - Part 2", tremendous, what an incredible guitar especially in "Two trains running", highly recommended for all music listeners, I give it 4,5 stars.
