"Who is this stranger from the Northern Country (Canada, via Ontario) who sounds so Southern-born and deep-fried with the blues? Brooks has a voice like coal coming down the chute but lubricated with Tupelo honey: the grit in his pipes is naturally designed for swamp boogie, growlin', and Memphis soul.
A dynamic songwriter, guitarist, and harmonica whooper, he hits every target he aims at here with brilliant solid licks and melodies. Go for any song you wish: betcha don't stop until you've played it through at least three consecutive times just to be sure that he really is this good.
Yes, he is. No, you weren't wrong. And he can hold his own on the country scene too."
