How I Go
Released: Jul 2011
Label: Roadrunner Records/Loud & Proud
Kenny Wayne Shepherd is a blues-rocker who doesn't always want to be a blues-rocker. This was evident on 2004's The Place You're In, a failed stab at post-grunge hipness. For the most part How I Go is an overdue return to the guitarist's core sound. Longtime fans will enjoy the smoky ballad "Show Me the Way Back Home"; even more, they'll dig "Yer Blues," a cover of The White Album classic that feels equally indebted to Hendrix. A couple tunes do sound as if Shepherd listened to too much Nickelback, most noticeably "Come On Over," but they're the exception rather than the rule this time around.
