Customer Reviews

"Blue Drops of Rain" rocked, but the fire is gone here.
Russell Diederich
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.
Kurt Harding
I stand behind every record he makes because I can recognize true genius, true talent when I hear it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Corey Stevens is one of the most original Bluesmen around right now. He continues to push the envelope on each record. Stevens knows no musical boundaries. Instead of putting out stale old cover songs like most bands these days, the majority of Stevens music is original music he wrote himself. Stevens has more integrity than any of this "new" generation of people trying to play Blues. Corey Stevens has staying power, he's been in the business for many years, and there's a reason for that, because he is a true blue Bluesman, who's music is real. Corey Stevens is keeping the blues BLUE. I stand behind every record he makes because I can recognize true genius, true talent when I hear it. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Corey Stevens are the ONLY white Bluesmen I listen to. I think that says alot that I give them the honor of being in the same category of Bluesmen like Albert King, Buddy Guy, BB King, Freddie King, Robert Johnson, Elmore James, etc. Corey Stevens is every bit as much of a Bluesman as they all are. Stevens lives and breathes the Blues. Don't believe any of the negative reviews you see on here, just buy this record now, and you too will hear this is true! In a 100 years from now Corey Stevens will be remembered as one of the Legends of Blues, he will be talked about in the same sentences mentioning the Kings of the Blues. If you are not yet a fan of Stevens, buy this CD and you will be, and if by chance after that you're somehow not, then my friend you are tone deaf. Corey Stevens is one of the best! Your Blues CD collection is not complete until you have each one of his records in it! This will be one of the best purchases you make!
