Where Clark, Jr. is a bit of an old-fashioned guitar hero, slipping into a bit of slickness on his 2012 major-label debut Blak and Blu, Booker enjoys every ragged edge. This is readily apparent on the punky thrashers -- including "Violent Shiver," which opens the album with a jolt, as well as "Old Hearts" -- but also evident on such spacy, open-ended ballads as "I Thought I Heard You Screaming," the full-tilt boogie of "Chippewa," and sunbaked crawl of "Spoon Out My Eyeballs," which apart from its violent title could be mistaken for forgotten slice of '60s soul.
