With his immaculate suits and ultra stylish shades you could easily mistake Joe Bonamassa for a super spy and with this new release he’s crafted something that could easily be the next James Bond theme.
With it’s laidback cool and lush orchestration, this Abbey Road recorded diamond glitters with an incandescent light, the tasteful vocals and guitars perfect as the music swells, the drama growing.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48Dl1e4afnY&w=560&h=315]
When it switches pace midway through to some truly heavy blues the effect is electrifying and it sounds like the jaw dropping product of what would happen if Led Zep and Rush ever jammed together.
As the track returns to the calm of before you have to take a breath or two to recover, the effect on the senses dizzying.
The king is most definitely back and, just when you thought he couldn’t get any better, Joe Bonamassa returns and releases something that exceeds even his stratospheric heights. Epic and absolutely stunning.
