"Buster Benton considered this his best album, and there is plenty of proof why. This album works overall, there is not a weak cut. Highlights include the title track, which is a slow blues that is perfect for Benton, as is "Born with the Blues". Many of the songs, like "Sweet 94, "Funny About My Money" and "Do it in the Rain" have heavy, funky beats to them, which may turn off some purists. But those who like blues with touches of soul will definitely like these songs. The backing band is solid as well, with Carey Bell providing some great harp licks and a strange sounding electric saxaphone from Ron Scott that fits in well with this type of blues album. Overall, a great blues album that may not appeal to everyone but those who like more updated blues will definitely enjoy it."
