"It was definitely an emotional experience, and it was the most fun I've ever had making a record," Kenny Wayne Shepherd says of his aptly-titled new album, Goin' Home, scheduled for release May 19, 2014 on Concord Records. "I felt like I was retracing my steps back to where it all began." (International release dates may vary)

Editorial Reviews

The Place You're In, Kenny Wayne Shepherd's long-awaited fourth album, marks a stunning stylistic shift for an artist who almost single-handedly introduced blues-rock to a new audience. One of the most acclaimed guitarists of his generation not only leans more heavily toward rock, but also releases his first album featuring his vocals. Says Shepherd, whose first three albums went gold or platinum & who has earned seven Top 10 Mainstream Rock cuts & three Grammy. nominations: "We're all growing & changing....We might as well get behind it & enjoy the ride." & enjoy The Place You're In.

I was getting so excited leading up to this release. I put in the first three albums again and listened to them a few more times. Each one was progressively better than the last, so I just *could not wait* to hear what would be next!

The day it came out, I didn't have enough money, so I had to content myself with looking at it in a store. "Hmm, just Kenny Wayne Shepherd," I thought, "Not KWS Band. Hope that's not a bad thing."

Ouch. Bad thing.

I did what others apparently did - double-checked to make sure the disc hadn't been mis-pressed. I could have sworn after the first three tracks that I wasn't listening to Kenny Wayne Shepherd, even though I could *occasionally, slightly* hear his guitar style. It's not just the absence of the fantastic Noah Hunt on vocals (always such a distinctive and wonderful part of the whole KWS Band sound), no, the musical style is different too. Gone are the blues, and I lament their absence. I never minded a good straightforward rock song or three on the KWSB albums; on the contrary, they blended in nicely and rounded out the whole listening experience. This album has a homogenous and sadly dull and unexciting sound overall. It hurts to write this review. I'm frequently a defender of stylistic changes that bands go through, but this one just falls flat, and I do believe KWS has come close to losing this once-enthusiastic fan.

A few years back the blues rock scene was smokin' with young and very talented guitarist like, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Mato Naji of Indigenous, they were all doing some great blues rock stuff and getting noticed everywhere. My question is where has all the blues gone? None of these guys play the blues any more, everyone wanted to call all three of these guys the next SRV, but Stevie Ray never sold out the blues he just kept re-inventing it, I still believe there is hope for Mato Naji to get back on the blues track, but I have given up on Jonny Lang and it looks like I can count KWS out as well. If it wasn't for the Blues all three of these cats would have never been discovered! If you want real blues rock then get you a Joe Bonamassa CD you won't be disappointed like I was with this CD. All I have to say to Kenny is remember where you came from!!!

I think that the new material has more edge to it than the older stuff, which is all good. Sometimes an artist simply gets into a head on collision with thier direction and I think this artist was heading down that one lane road with himself and found a right turn to take.

Some people simply will not have the ability to see what is being accomplished here, and that is ok, sad, but ok! Others will see what tremendous courage it takes to take a leap into new territory. I think this effort shows great strides in this young artists career. He is metamorphising new textures and opening more paths for his career to expand on. I see nothing wrong here and in fact I like the songs with Kenny singing. He has a great voice over his own music. Naturally it will take away from some of his guitar solo's to accomplish this.

Kenny is belting out his vocals and they rock. I think he is feeling more of the song as whole rather than just the guitar portions of the songs. It's great for him to explore this avenue, and I hope this continues to blossom his vocal skills so that we may see more from him in future endeavors.

Like so many artists before him who have tried jumping outside the box,Kenny Wayne Shepherd has failed to make a successful impact on this disc.Kenny Wayne grew up loving the blues,wanting to play the blues;this is not the blues.This is,as one reviewer put it,generic arena rock,but slightly better.Songs such as "Let Go" and "Believe" are what I would expect from Kenny.Songs like "Alive" and "Spanked" are songs I would expect from Lenny Kravitz(whom I cant stand by the way).The vocals and guitars are fine.The lyrics and style of music leave much to be desired.Like a return to previous form on his next album.Only diehard KWS fans should purchase this disc,otherwise check for the two songs I mentioned on ITunes and go with that along with his previous three discs.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd's newest release does in fact share many similarities to Lenny Kravitz as other reviews have pointed out. This is a dissapointment to some, including me. I like Lenny Kravitz and buy his CD's. I really liked Shepherd's earlier efforts because they didn't sound like anybody else. The new effort sounds typical. Some applaud Shepherd's stylistic shift as a mature growth. I disagree. I see this as an unfortunate turn away from the unique sound and energy that made him a guitar "allstar" in the first place. The music on this CD is solid, and the guitar work is supurb. After a few listens it does grow on you, but Kenny's vocals are not in the same league with his former vocalist, Noah Hunt. The two tracks that feature Hunt are the two most powerful moments on the record. I don't really like Kid Rock at all, but can live with one track. Also note that Shepherds two previous albums were by the Kenny Wayne Shepherd BAND. This one is by Kenny Wayne Shepherd. This could be considered a solo album. This is an important point. This is Shepherd more on his own, with guests. I believe Shepherd is more powerful in a band setting and hold out high hopes for the "Blues Project" due from him in the future. In short, I'm afraid Shepherd has underestimated the value of having talented musicians collaborating with him. Noah was a big part of what I liked about Trouble is... and Live On. Maybe the next Kravitz disc will sound like KWSB.
