Walk Away would be, in a re-recording, a snappy and very catchy radio song but here – and in a few other places – his female backing singer is a serious distraction.
LaDell sounds a precocious talent who can undeniably play blues and rock across the spectrum (the lovely Driftin' Through Time shows another side of his playing and personality) and as a restrained showcase this is a highly promising debut from a young artist who will doubtless develop a broader lyrical palette as time goes on.
Just about everything else seems to be in place and confident.
