"Ready for some hard driving blues rock...well, here it is! Wilson has his hands firmly on the throttle pushing the guitar into high for high power riffs!" - Bman's Blues Report
"With gentle hints of Eric Johnson & Eric Clapton's guitar styles, matched with the cool of Don Henley's California vocal style, Wilson's new album confidently reflects a collection of songs inspired by Ray Charles, Freddie King - and even the Meters' ("Hey Pocky A-Way" on "Let's Go Barefootin' it").- C.
