Review: 'JD Hobson Band, The'
'Where the Sun Don’t Shine'   

-  Album: 'Where the Sun Don’t Shine'
-  Genre: 'Blues'

Our Rating:
With a title like ‘Where the Sun Don’t Shine’, JD Hobson – here releasing his first album with a full band instead of as a solo artist – could be seen as asking for trouble from cynical reviewers. Lucky for him, he’s got a decent set of songs down. Or perhaps luck has nothing to do with it, and it’s a reflection of the confidence he has in his material. He’s every right to be. There’s an urgency about the first two songs that grabs the attention.

That urgency may dissipate as the thirteen tracks unravel, but Hobson still manages to maintain the standard across the set as a whole, which features eight original compositions. Hobson favours the understated and the soft, but he still manages to change gear and mood often enough to prevent monotony setting in, and there’s a classically cool blues swagger to standout track ‘Walking Out of the Door Crying Blues’.
