5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny breaks the door down! January 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
1991 wasn't a really good year for blues but this album as well as John Lee Hookers "The Healer" continued to burn the flame during that dark peroid.
EVERY track on this one is totally fabulous...Johnnys voice is at its peak, his guitar work is incendiary and the greatest thing about this album is the feeling throughout that Johnny and his band ( who are also 100% superb!) are really enjoying every moment of it.
Billy Branchs harp work is stunning and Dr. Johns piano is practically in flames, especially on that last track " You Lie Too Much" (c.d version only/bonus track).
This c.d goes so well together with Johnnys two previous c.ds " Guitar Slinger" and the merciless "Third Degree"...they all have the same very high level of energy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Johnny rocks as always September 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Right after I played this for the first time, the fire alarm in our building went off. I think it was just coincidence, but it was appropriate, because Johnny smokes through the entire CD.
It took a couple listens before I got used to his singing, which seems smoother than on his other CDs. I like the more tortured way he sings.
Standout cuts: Illustrated Man, title cut, any of the four with Dr. John on piano. Johnny Winter fans won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great back-to-basics blues-rock September 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
1991s "Let Me In" features thirteen primarily electric songs, a good, sympathetic little band, and guest appearances by harpist Billy Branch and R&B-veteran Dr John. The good doctor plays piano on several tracks, getting off a particularly terrific solo on "Sugaree", and Billy Branch's amplified harp duets with Johnny Winter's gritty slide guitar on the WInter-penned slow blues "If You got a Good Woman", and plays tasteful fills on a fine cover of Jimmy Reed's "Shame Shame Shame".

"Let Me In" is certainly one of Winters' better latter-day efforts. It featuring some magnificent, blazing guitar playing (of course it does), and a number of really good performances, including the energetic opener, "Illustrated Man", and the magnificent acoustic title track, a Son House-like slide guitar blues right out of the Delta. Johnny Winter is one of the best white musicians I have ever heard play the acoustic slide guitar, and this song brings back memories of his masterful playing on Muddy Waters' "Hard Again" album.

And the goodies keep coming. The aforementioned "If you Got a Good Woman" channels the late, great Elmore James, Winter plays a smouldering electric solo on the soulful, if uncharacteristic, ballad "Life Is Hard", and he and Mac Rebennack show off their chops on the swaggering Dr John-penned blues-rocker "You Lie Too Much". Oh, and don't forget to notice the jazzy throwback "Blue Mood", a slow, smoky number penned by 50s songwriter Jessie Mae Robinson.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Johnny's Best! February 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard "Illustrated Man" on a blues show on the local jazz radio station, I had to get this CD. Being a longtime Johnny Winter fan, I was not disappointed! This is some of the hottest blues guitar playing and singing you'll ever hear! My favorite song is probably the third track, "Life is Hard", which features some beautiful blues vocals by Johnny as well as a nice piano solo by the legendary Dr. John, who also helps out on three other tracks. Other noteworthy songs are the title track, "Medicine Man", "Blue Mood", "Got to Find My Baby", and "You Lie Too Much". Let's face it, from start-to-finish this is a very enjoyable CD. Johnny has definitely left his mark as one of the all-time legendary contemporary bluesmen like Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and this is a must for any true fan of Johnny Winter and the blues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Johnny's Best In Many Years November 17, 1998
Format:Audio CD
This is Johnny's best CD since "Guitar Slinger" in the mid eighties. Forget Jonny Lang, Johnny Winter plays blues the way blues was ment to be played.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your mother's bedtime music October 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I know, I know; all you wanted to do was lay down and relax, and then someone had to go and put this into the changer. What's that feeling, down in your feet? What's that -- you want to get up and *move*? -- maybe even *dance*? There really must be something wrong with you, boy -- better get yerself checked out before you succumb to boogie fever or rock-and-roll flu!

Well. It's not likely you've even come to this page without having serious interest in the white-haired guitarist from Texas, so I won't presume you don't know just what Johnny Winter is all about.

I will however go against the grain of Winter-fandom and proclaim Johnny's two 1990's releases as being every bit as good as the early releases he's best known for -- even better, IMHO, than the "JW And" era. Those early releases tended toward excessive soloing -- the hallmark of the age, really, and Johnny was as much a harbinger as practitioner of the style.

These Pointblank releases, however, find Johnny just right: it's all Johnny (just as he should be) but finally framed at his best. His singing is emotive and expressive, and so is his guitar. The band is his regular trio, totally in sync with his Johnnyness. Guest appearances are fantastically appropriate (especially Dr John!), and the song styles give a nice variety. Simply put, it's Johnny at the top of his game, front to back. [Just as good: the followup release, HEY WHERE'S YOUR BROTHER?]

Personal favorites include "The Illustrated Man" (so perfect for him, it's surprising he didn't write it), T-bone Walker's "Blue Mood" (here done acoustically), and "Hey You", which plumbs the depths of social inquiry in the guise of the most hoppin' party tune ever -- not only will you be smiling, but you should also be exhausted enough to finally get that nap you were wanting beforehand :)
