Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2011-07-01 
Ali Farka Toure’s son stands on his own as a singer/songwriter/guitarist with a great African rock/blues style. Some great guest stars including dad, Dave Matthews, and John Scofield add extra interest. Powerful and stylish from start to finish.

*1. Big, driving, and uptempo w/slamming guitar work.
2. Midtempo with a mystero-Sahara feel. Very cool.
*3. Great guitars highlight this striding midtempo track.
4. Relaxed w/tight arrangement of guitars and vocal harmonies.
*5. Cool head-nodding Afro blues w/great guitar breaks.
6. Stylish midtempo desert blues.
7. Midtempo and lyrical, like Africa meets Mississippi.
*8. Upbeat Afro rock w/fast vocals & a wild style. So cool.
*9. Mid/uptempo w/a cool “sitting around jamming” feeling.
10. Sweet midtempo guitar noodling to mid/upbeat Saharan blues.
11. Relaxed guitars mid/upbeat vocals w/a driving style.
12. Lazy, laid back and stylish w/cool vocals.
