Cloudkicker consistently puts out great albums. That is what you tend to get when you have a talented one man show that can put everything together on his own. Sure, playing with other people has the perks of adding up people's different styles and perspectives together, but Ben Sharp seems to have enough styles/perspectives in his own head to make up for that.
Last year's Let Yourself Be Huge saw Cloudkicker get dialed back a little bit, it was less heavy but still great. This newest album so far seems to be the best of both worlds again. And like always, he provides the digital downloads for free.
