Manufacturer Description

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILE

Given his past work with starmaker John Mayall and Albert Collins, it's no surprise that Coco Montoya has turned out solid, consistent blues-rock since his debut in 1995. Can't Look Back is his second album since his move to Alligator Records, and it's very similar to 2000's Suspicion in sound and structure. That means it's a collection of energetic, taut blues-rock with originals that hold their own with the covers, although Collins's "Same Old Thing" does stand out. Other highlights include the tightly wound "Running Away from Love," the strangely pyrotechnic "Can't See the Streets for My Tears," and the tension generated by the contrast between music and lyrics on the title track. Overall, Montoya is settling nicely into a classic blues-rock sound that generates its own momentum and showcases his considerable talent. --Genevieve Williams
