20. Joe Bonamassa - Driving Towards The Daylight
And so begins the Top 20. This one was mentioned a while back when Black Country Communion came up, and here it is. Bonamassa's new album is a solid one, although not as good as last year's Dust Bowl, I must admit. Nevertheless, it's still proof that he churns out powerful blues records effortlessly. From this point on it's so hard to even pick a track to link to, they all have such different ranges of influence. The title track is easily one of my favorites, having a ballad-y uplifting message and having that raw emotion present. The track below is the quintessential blues track; great groove, beautiful leads, and just a rocking package overall. The rest of the album doesn't stray too far from that formula, and I'm not complaining. Give it a chance, I can't imagine strong disdain.
