Shame on you if you haven’t heard Eric Sardinas yet. Especially if you’re into blues rock. Because this guy is something else, let me tell ya. He and his band – a trio – called Big Motor plays their music raw, hard and in your face and as Sardinas is playing the electric Dobro instead of the actual guitar their sound becomes very personal which is also helped by Sardinas raspy voice – the guy really doesn’t sound like anyone else. This new album is his sixth since he debuted with Treat Me Right in 1999, an album that promised a lot but didn’t really go all the way. But under the name of Eric Sardinas & Big Motor, this one is their third. The three first solo albums – the 2000 E.P. Angel Face not counted – which includes Devil’s Train (2001) and Black Pearls (2003) are all must-have albums for any rocker worth his / her name.
