Can't Lose the Blues...
Docendo Discimus | Vita scholae | 03/20/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 1991 album was Son Seals' sixth for Alligator records, and his first in seven years. And "Living in the Danger Zone" is pretty standart fare for the gruff-voiced guitarist; a solid collection of mostly mid-tempo blues grinds with plenty of Seals' characteristic staccato lead guitar.

About half the tracks are Seals' own compositions, but he also delivers strong renditions of "Tell it to Another Fool", "I Can't Lose the Blues", and Tim Matson's "Frigidaire Woman", as well as the tough, no-nonsense title track.
Some more variation in tempo and style would have been nice, though...this is a perfectly good record, but it lacks the excellence of Seals' best work ("Midnight Son", "Nothing but the Truth"). The material is good, but generally not quite great, and while fans will definitely want to pick up "Living in the Danger Zone", newcomers ought to start with one of the above-mentioned albums, or Seals' fine 1973 debut, "The Son Seals Blues Band".
3 1/2 stars. This one is good, but Son Seals has made great albums."

"I've loved the blues since high school and I can say that Son Seals is one of the most original, kick-bum blues artists I've heard yet. This album is worth every penny. I've been looking for it in stores, but it's hard to find. A good mix of urban blues, ballads, humor and Son's signature guitar."
