    I am one of those people who has to listen to a new CD several times before coming to an opinion as to how good, or bad, it is. Joe Bonamassa's latest "Blues of Desperation" was no different. However, I can now confidently say that this is one of, if not the, best CD he has produced. Every song is unique and interesting for different reasons. If you like harder rock, it's here; if you like ballads, they're here...and all of the songs are infused with Joe's fantastic guitar playing. If you are a fan of guitar oriented blues-rock music, you owe it to yourself to get this CD. Whether you are a long-time fan of Joe's or if you've never heard anything he's done, this is a fantastic piece of music which I highly recommend.

    My review may be biased since I own everything else Joe has put out but I think this CD is great. He toned back the horns from the last release and rocks a little harder. Some of highlights are "Drive" which is especially enjoyable; it has a Peter Green flavor to it. "Mountain Climbing" has a ultra solid groove and fine female backing vocals giving it a little variation from his prior work. The title track has a psychedelic groove, great guitar work and sounds like nothing he's done before. The rest of the CD balances rock and blues as he usually does. If you are a fan, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    A very good album overall, but I wouldn't say it's great. I prefer the heavy hitters that make up four of the first five songs. These I would put in the excellent category. The rest is somewhat of a mixed bag, and a mixture of styles, with horns and a jazzier sound at times. There are no bad songs, but several that don't stand out among Joe's better ones. All in all, an album well worth buying, especially if you like rock and blues guitar.

    Wow...Joe did it again. With this CD, he has crafted some of the best modern blues rock tunes I've ever heard. This CD hasn't left my cd player in about a month, I just can't listen to it enough. I highly recommend it. For those who have followed Joe's career, you will recognize this CD as the next logical step in his musical progression. For those unfamiliar with him, this is a great place to start. Great CD.

    This is my first Joe Bonamassa album so it's my introduction and I'm really enjoying it. It is not traditional blues as much as it is a blues/rock hybrid. I'm a big SRV fan so I love loud electric blues. Joe is a nice guitar player and the songs are pretty solid. I would recommend this album if you like electric blues or rock music.I will be buying more Joe Bonamassa albums based on this one.

    Joe Bonamassa has been one of my favorite artists for nearly a decade. I've seen him live twice and listened to all of his albums countless times. Blues of Desperation is his best album yet. Joe has stepped up his song writing to match his guitar playing on this one. If you've never heard of Joe Bonamassa, Blues of Desperation will make you a fan.

    In a world of pop music, where auto-tune, and watered down country music rule, it's a blessing There's still artists like Joe Bonamassa who actually play their instruments, and can honestly sing, and actually write their own songs. Joe is one killer player who delivers the blues with style and honesty. Stop reading this and buy the dam album already!!

    Bonamassa - What More Needs to Be Said??

    Bonamassa - much better as a front man rather than part of a duo. I like him, his guitar playing, and his voice up front, front and center with no other voice to distract from his talent. (Sorry Beth) He is a hot property, probably won't ever be able to see him in person, so this is the next best. Great CD.
