A lot of you out there probably think that Corey Stevens is JUST another Stevie Ray Vaughan wanna-be. To a degree, you're right about that. I noticed that on 'Road To Zen' (his second effort), Stevens seems to explore other musical areas, perhaps like a more funky side. Some of the tunes I thought were okay are "Too Much Fun", "My Neighborhood", "Big House Blues" and "Take It Back". Might appeal to fans of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Johnny Lang and Mike Welch. Give it a listen, see what you think.

A mix of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Albert King influenced guitarists. Corey is a great blues artist who lets himself be a conduit for the music.

My introduction to Corey Stevens came through a fellow California transplant who is on a constant mission to find the "next blue thang".
Now twenty years since the demise of Stevie Ray Vaughan, that long-awaited musical messiah has yet to appear even though many have sought to assume his mantle.
Many have touted Corey Stevens as a strong contender for that mantle and I actually ordered Road To Zen on the strength of Blues Are Here To Stay, a song dripping with the influence of SRV. But that's about it! Most of the record is not blues at all but rather it is rock-and-roll with an occasional musical nod in a bluesy direction.
There are a few pretty good songs here but there is also some that are oh so bland and basic. My favorites are: Only One For You, One More Time, and Take It Back which are excellent rock tunes, the Mayallesque My Neighborhood, the epic title cut which is actually a great piece of work, and of course the SRV-influenced Blues Are Here To Stay. My least favorites are Too Much Fun, Big House Blues, and Charles Bronson Vibe which sound like so much of the other mediocre stuff passed off as blues rock. As for Lessons of Love, well its just there.
There is enough I like on Road to Zen that impels me to further explore the work of Corey Stevens. But the new SRV he is not and will never be. If you have an open mind about music, Stevens is definitely worth a listen but you have to temper your expectations as I did.

W/ his Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan style this is one of Corey's best CDs.

Road to Zen was the hit here but this CD doesn't slow down and just amazing guitar playing.

It's just a great CD.

Corey's album is deep on every level: melodies, lyrics, guitar virtuosity, feeling. Just take a listen to the guitar work on "Road to Zen". It's one of the most beautiful blues-rock songs ever recorded. And he lyrics aren't bad either. One song after another slams you against the floor then takes you up through the roof. If you like heavy bass lines, a mean, lacerating guitar that blasts in and out of the melody like an burst of angry hornets, get this album. Oh, and did I mention the humor in some of the lyrics: ("Everyone's got a porch but no one's got a view")? Dust off your shelf and make room for this CD.

Stevens work is interesting but lacks heart. The tracks mostly seem forced from a country feel into a blues motiff, and despite the wonderful work of Mississippi Slim on the seventh track "Take it Back" the overall work lacks a true bluesy feel. In short, Stevens latest blues album is a great country/western CD but a less than must have for a blues fan.
