Title - 'Suzie Cracks The Whip' (429 Records)
Artist - Blues Traveler
John Popper, Chan Kinchla, Tad Kinchla, Ben Wilson and Brendan Hill, aka Blues Traveler, will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary with the release of Suzie Cracks The Whip — their 11th album and first for 429 Records.
The Grammy Award winning, platinum selling rock band have built up a considerable musical legacy based on their infectious, winning sound and their tireless love of touring resulting in a legion of loyal fans worldwide.
And this, their latest album will definitely keep that fan loyalty bubbling. Suzie Cracks The Whip begins with the lead single, 'You Don't Have To Love Me,' a song that sounds like classic Blues Traveler fare at its finest. Next is 'Recognize My Friend,' a track that slows things down, but still contains the BT vibe. That is followed by the poppier 'Devil In The Details,' before both the funky 'All Things Are Possible' and the harmonica-driven 'Things Are Looking Up.'
Then comes the soleful 'Love Is Everything (That I Describe),' which bleeds into the rocker 'I Don't Wanna Go,' the original radio play-sound of 'Nobody Fall In Love With Me,' and the non-descript 'Cover Me.' The album rounds out with 'Saving Grace,' the fast-paced 'Big City Girls' and the gently piano refrain of 'Cara Let The Moon.'
