Amoeba Review

Young blues guitar virtuoso Gary Clark Jr. has seen his profile grow immensely following the release of 2012’s Blak and Blue, whose songs were used in various TV shows, one of which (“Please Come Home”) also won a Grammy. The Story of Sonny Boy Slim doubles down on the soul ‘n’ Southern-fried licks of his debut. “Grinder” moves on a sultry rhythm and lets Clark unleash piercing riffs with fury, coming across as a spiritual cross between B.B. King, Prince and Jimi Hendrix. But Sonny Boy Slim is more than a showcase for Clark’s handy ax-work, as his songs are strong on their own. “Star” gives Clark’s soaring falsetto a chance to shine over a classic psych-soul arrangement, while on “The Healing,” he sings of the soothing power of music and backs up his words with a stirring piece of orchestral blues. “Our Love” is one of his best song’s yet, a tasteful yet passionate soul devotional that showcases how Clark can balance such skilled guitarwork with tightly written songcraft without ever coming off as showy. Rather, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim serves as another powerful, confident declaration of pure talent from one of the hottest young artists around.
