CD Reviews

An underrated surprise
B. E Jackson | Pennsylvania | 05/05/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"WOW, talk about underrated- that pretty much sums up my feelings with the lost album by Ten Years After called Watts. What makes the music on the album so special to me? Well, I've heard Cricklewood Green, but the songwriting on that album isn't quite as high as it is here. Something about this particular set of songs is really really good to me.

Quality blues rock, but not necessarily the typical kind of blues rock most people immediately think of- Ten Years After liked to create blues rock in a way where the songs feel more like pop songs, but with a little bit of jamming thrown in for good measure. The jams are really really cool too. Not in ANY way boring. It was a winning formula for the band during the early 70's, but the results are REALLY satisfying to me on Watt.

"Gonna Run" reminds me of Canned Heat a little bit, and I LOVE that song. "She Lies in the Morning" is absolutely fascinating as far as highly enjoyable vocals is concerned. You'll probably fall in love with that melody the first time you hear it- it's extremely catchy.

This is truly an underrated album, and everyone must find a way to hear it."
