Gritty bar blues with a penchant for danceable numbers, KickBend has made a classic blues-rock offering that is both easy on the palette and mid-western in scope. Having twenty years experience playing the Chicago-land area, their sound is comparable to a good Springsteen romp. Heavy on the keys and classic guitar chops, this is just some good home-brew. Vocally, it’s just above average, as I was hoping to hear more grit, but overall a decent classic rock and blues disc.
