The buzz and chug and squeal of fuzzed and feed-backed guitar, that latter ‘held’ in sublime skill, continues to inform the fine work of Eric Steckel who is up there and above many other better knowns.
This is more of the excellent same [read previous reviews here] and his deeper use of his Hammond keys adds breadth, as does this and piano on the perfect blues of second track We’re Still Friends.
Steckel’s maturing vocal is another part of this artist’s rock’n’blues armoury, hammered out in fire and finesse. Riffs rule, yes, and as it should be. Guitar masterclass on It's My Own Fault. Foregrounding the vocal on Picture Frame.
