2 stars I was curious how it sounded when Steve Hacket played the blues, but after couple of listenings I could only imagine why Steve Hackett recorded this album at all. It is not progressive music, and the blues played on it is not a blues someone would expect. Besides routine average blues numbers, there is several songs that are some hybrids of blues idiom and little bit of progressive music elements which are worth to mention, like "Way down South", "A blue Part of Town", "Tombstone Roller" and "Big Dallas Sky", but that only confirmed me in thought that this is not a coherent record. Even one of my favourite blues songs, "So many Roads", left me indifferent.

Only for Steve Hackett completionists. For blues listeners? No, I don't think so.
