Editorial Review:
"The blues is a chair," John Lennon once said of the music's primacy. Yet for many artists the genre often seems more like a straightjacket, one that even a modern legend like Robert Cray has struggled to escape during the course of a multi-Grammy career. But the Georgia veteran has pulled off something of a sly escape trick here, taking the freedom offered by a change in record labels to team with keyboardist, songwriter, and producer Jim Pugh on a slate of performances that are by turns looser, funkier, and more far-ranging in their subject matter. Cray wastes no time in boldly staking out that new turf on the pointed, country-gospel-rooted, antiwar "Survivor." From there Cray immediately makes another jarring turn into the psych-pop of "Up in the Sky," trading his trademark Strat for the rare, distinctive tones of an electric sitar. Even Cray's more familiar blues tack is variously tinged with slippery swamp tones ("Back Door Slam"), slinky Memphis grooves ("Your Pal," featuring the Family Stone horns, and "What You Need"), and the propulsive Caribbean inflections of "Distant Shore." Those more adventurous forays only underscore the elegant drama of "Time Makes Two," where Cray dramatically evokes the blues' holy trinity: a broken heart, soulful voice, and lyrical guitar. --Jerry McCulley
