Gary Clark Jr: The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim

Album Review

A story in search of an ending.

There's something almost perversely satisfying about the way that Gary Clark Jr evades the expectations heaped upon him on his second ‘proper’ album. And what great expectations they have been too: a host of old fogeys offering their glowing testimonials – led by Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton – followed by the inevitable Jimi Hendrix comparisons, a string of musical dalliances from Alicia Keys to the Foo Fighters, and mopping up just about every award going at his hometown Austin Music Festival.
