Wim S. : Pay attention, here is another nice sounding album. While the sun shines very brightly at the moment, you sweat like hell and of course you’ll drink a cold beer. The perfect conditions to go and listen to the music of this band, Greasy Tree. Three guys from Jonesboro, USA and they play a kind of nice, lazy southern rock and blues. And they do so convincingly.

It has been a while since I have heard an album that starts with the worst song. Well, to be more specific, 'Don’t Worry About Me' is not a bad song but it's absolutely not representative for the rest of the material. Because from ‘Sweet Sugar’ on, we hear amazing guitar parts, reminiscent of Black Crowes and related bands and vocal lines that remind me of Paul Rodgers and Bad Company. If that is not a compliment to the band, I do not know what is. But it is also true. Listen to the really beautiful 'Time, Love and Space' and you will know what I mean. Very lazy, feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your head and back. That feeling also holds on with the blissful 'Goin Home' and the beautiful 'Shame' in which the vocal lines are really beautiful. 'Love That Lady' is more of a standard blues, while 'Whiskey' sounds like the best southern rock. 'Greasy' is a nice lazy jam in which Cameron Roberts's guitar plays the lead. Delicious. The album ends with a Stevie Ray Vaughan riff in 'She Wild'. It is obvious: great album and recommended for anyone who swears by the mentioned references.
