    To the crying snowflakes b*tching about Gary's message on this album, I dare you to spend a week in a black man's shoes, translate your feelings into music, and elevate that experience into high art. If you can accomplish that, then feel free to b*tch and moan about another human being's experiences that dare to take you out of your smug, self-righteous delusion of privilege. BUT, if you can do none of this, and can't accomplish getting your head out of your own rear end, go back to listening to Elvis.

    Gary Clark Jr. continues to shine. His talent grows every time he plays his guitar. I’m excited at the possibility of his best work still being in front of him. That said, this album is intensely great! Now, for the people down on the messages of his music, and especially the “just play the blues” crowd, shut up. Do you even understand what many blues musicians sing about? Look up some history. Please. Clark is carrying the torch on all levels and carving out his own path as well.

    I absolutely love the talent in GCjr. He is singing of his experience which is what makes great pieces of art. Why would he cater to anyone else - this would not be genuine. Get over yourselves critics and listen to his words about his story and respect what life is like for him. Is it my favorite? Certainly not but it’s his story and I am honored to be on the receiving end of it.
  • Finally a great blues/rock album!

    Pay no attention to the racist haters. This album is amazing. Yes it speaks out against the political tyranny in US politics right now which needs to be said. Musically, so often I hear amazing blues players but the songs are not great. Gary Clark Jr. is a great song writer and player. I love the mix between hip hop/soul/funk/blues. It's a fresh take on blues today. Thank you Gary Clark Jr. you're amazing.

    Mr. Clark, Jr. Just Gets Better With Time. We Saw Him In Nashville Last Weekend. His New Material (Much Of It In This Album) Extends His Reach & Is Right On Time!!

    To those who were uncomfortable with the initial single released, and bailed: Your loss. Many apparently were uncomfortable with the politicial perspective of the initial release of single, This Land, before the rest came out. The song is a black man's perspective (GCJ's) of exasperation and anger of seeing racists posts in every comment section on nearly every topic, having to stare at confederate flag bumper stickers with a smile like it's nothing, and the exhaustion of people questioning where you do or don't belong (and whether for real or percieved because how do you tell the difference) ... ANYWAYS, FOR THOSE WHO DIDN'T GET TO HEAR THE REST OF THE ALBUM, AFTER BAILING FROM HEARING HIS INITIAL SINGLE: THIS ALBUM IS HIS BEST!! And I should know as I have them all : ) Awesome job. Thanks GCJ!!

    I’ve always admired GCJ ... and now I profoundly respect him. Lyrically, musically, and thematically, this is a spectacular album. If you like rock n roll, you’ll love this. (Unless you’re small handed - see below.)
