'Diamonds In The Dirt' is the second stunning album by spiraling blues star Joanne Shaw Taylor who is again given licence to thrill on her Fender Telecaster at Bessie Blue Studios in Tennessee with legendary producer Jim Gaines who records 10 new breathtaking original gems featuring Steve Potts on drums, Dave Smith on bass, Rick Steff on keyboards.

'Diamonds In The Dirt' captures Joanne Shaw Taylor on fire with a collection of love songs expressing her hopes and fears forged from crash and burn experiences on her journey through life since her widely acclaimed debut album White Sugar. Cue acoustic guitar and deep smoky vocals like the quiet before a storm on 'Can't Keep Living Like This' and wait for the whirlwind to follow that emanates straight from her scorching Fender Telecaster and thunderous rhythm section that simply blow you away! Nearly two years on from her last outing and this young lady needs to get a lot off her chest as she exorcises the past with 'Dead And Gone' and sings of finding "New life in this fight" on 'Same As It Ever Was' before moving into overdrive and telling of a brave new world on 'Jump That Train' that is a real bone shaker! 'Who Do You Love' delivers some her finest guitar licks to date leading into the title track 'Diamonds In The Dirt', a love song which brings her smoky voice to the fore that is winning awards like Best British Female Vocalist at the 2010 British Blues Awards and it's fair to say adding female musician and songwriter to that accolade wouldn't be far from the truth!

I stumbled upon Joanne Shaw Taylor's first CD "White Sugar" a while back and liked it so much I decided to see if she was on YouTube. WOW! Its just her, a base player and a drummer. She sings and plays blues and rock with so much heart and soul I was stunned. I've seen and heard all the great lady blues artists around today, but Joanne Shaw Taylor is over the top. Great vocals and FANTASTIC guitar. Then I saw her in a small club in San Francisco and was blown away. She's one of the hottest talents I've ever seen. Her second CD "Diamonds in the Dirt" is just as good as the first. She plays all over Europe and is just getting discovered here, but soon she will be a household name. Check her out on YouTube and you'll see what I mean.

Taylor is a great young blues guitarist / singer / songwriter that came out of the UK with her debut album in 2009. "Diamonds" is her follow-up to that effort and although it is a good album, she suffers from a bit of a sophomore slump with this one. The songwriting is ok, but not quite as strong as her first one in my opinion with lyrics that tackle typical blues themes, but nothing really original. The decision to fade out several of the tracks, just as the guitar is really kicking in, is puzzling to me as well. Obviously it was a conscious decision, but where on the first album the guitar solos were a highlight on this one many of the solos never seem to get the chance to really take flight. One could argue that this album is more focused than the first one, and depending on your perspective this may be a valid point, but to my ears things are reined in a bit too much here. I realize I am being pretty negative, and I really do not want to imply that this is a bad album, but compared to the promise of her debut this one is a slight step backwards to my ears. It probably comes down more to personal taste as I imagine there are people who will like this one better than her first one, depending on what the listeners personal taste in his or her blues records. Taylor is still a great young talent that deserves as much exposure as she can get, but I still feel slightly let down by this release.

Loved the first album, White Sugar, from JST. After the first few times through, this latest is great. Can't say it is better just yet, but it could be, I have to let it soak in. Saw her live, in a small club in Orlando, and none of the amazing guitar work is studio magic, she absolutely kills. If you love guitar and/or the blues, you want her albums.

Listen. This is really excellent. If you want to listen to "pure" blues, I appreciate that, but if there is no deviation from the raw basics, you'll just hear some song that has been done and heard a million times. This woman has a real blues soul, but has written something original as well. I admit, I would hate to see her next album develop into an over-produced, canned cross-genre piece that seems to be all too much of a danger these days, but this particular album is way on the safe side of that. Blues must live on with new voice and new perspective, but still be recognizable as the real thing. This album succeeds. It is beautiful and powerful.
