In the press
An honest album, the kind you get to love and becomes a classic to have at your home.
- Alberto Vila for Rolling Stone
A delightful album for its collection of songs, including such rich details (dobros, saxophones, tambourines, cellos, bongos, brass section). Each track also has its own personality that sets it apart from the rest (…) especially the contagious beauty of “Losing My Blue Moon”, “Rainy Days” and “Blue As The Night”, three of the most beautiful songs that can be heard so far this year.
- Toni Castarnado for MondoSonoro
The vocals are mixed with surgical precision, there’s a very present organ, the guitars go on beyond virtuosity, arrangements are like powerful skeletons (…) This album brings back the enthusiasm to those who think that, beyond any question, a song can contain all the answers.
- Héctor Fouce for LaNetro.com
Stormy Mondays shows a lot of promise, bringing a fresh approach to sounds that have bounced back and forth across the Atlantic for more than three decades. Given additional time to gel as a band and to further cultivate its own songwriting style, this group could very well produce some truly amazing music. On its debut, the outfit certainly is off to a great start.
- John Metzger for The Music Box
I find it an absolute joy listening this album from beginning to end. I still think this is the best Stormy Mondays album ever.
The first three songs (Southwind, Out of this town, and Disappointment / The wrong dream) make you see very clearly what this band is like, and what you’ll hear on that record, it’s a true statement.
- Fran Martínez
This album takes me throughout the Mississippi without leaving home, especially “Tomorrow’s the day “… that harmonica really rocks!
- Andrés Rueda
