"I sometimes wonder why Chris Rea doesn't tour the US!! His music is so Bluesy and soulful that it captures the soul of the delta. yet he is more popular in Europe than here. This is a much awaited album from him. CR certainly doesn't disappoint you. I bought the import version..so what if I had to fork out some extra cash there. But every song is worth more than that. The testimony to his music is that couple of my colleague's who have never heard his name before loved his music. This tells me that there is certainly a market in the US for his music. This is blues at best and CR does it in his own style. His guitaring, voice, the lyrics they all just seem to fall in place. I would say strong buy."

"I picked this up last week through the used CD means offered here at Amazon. I'm very glad I did. This is Chris' best release since the original Road to Hell. If you like the blues then this is a must! Well produced, great audio quality and stellar playing. The version I picked up came with extra video material of Chris playing live. Too bad he doesn't get the air time in the USA like he deserves. He has a great voice and can play the blues on that guitar of his. Pick this one up-you will be glad you did."
There's A Big Difference Between Good And Great

"First off I want to say i'm a fan of Chris Rea, but let's be honest here. This is not a great CD or a great blues CD. I recently took a short trip and listened to this CD 5 times straight. I can say it is a good Chris Rea and a quite decent blues CD. I listen to a lot of music and blues is one of my passions. When I read some of the reviews that are posted here, it's clear these are not music connoisseurs. Chris Rea's voice is suited for the blues and his guitar playing is very tasty, but great slide playing? Maybe some of you should listen to Ry Cooder, Sonny Landreth and bluesman Roy Rogers, those are great blues slide players. I would put Rea's slide playing in the George Harrison camp - tasty playing that's just right for the song and that's not a bad thing. When I see words like great and awesome in a review I know I should be on my toes. Chris Rea has a good catalog of music and "Stony Road" will not disappoint if you've liked his earlier stuff. It is a mystery why he's not caught on in the States. Bruce Cockburn is another artist who has not caught on either, who in my opinion who is so vastly underrated it should be a crime. When reviewing CD's please be honest, there's a big difference between good and great."
