In a few words:

This is the most recently release of this blues rock band, called Firebird. The band circulates around BIll Steer (ex Carcass), who is the songwriter, the guitarist and the vocalist of the band. The rest band members change frequently. However, this does not affect the quality and the sound of the band (all their albums are quite good). So, blues is the case here. An album that brings the old blues feeling and techniques to now. Steer's voice is quite good and with a lot of feeling. If the previous presented album (Ad Astra) was accompanied with beer, this ones fits perfect with whiskey/bourbon...

Personal highlights:
"Jack The Lad", "Release Me" and "Four Day Creep"
