Product Description

Keb' Mo' ~ Slow Down

Guitarist and vocalist Keb' Mo' seems to be continuing in the direction suggested by his previous album, Just Like You, with this release. That is to say, mixed in with the country-blues style that dominated his self-titled debut are elements of soul, R&B, and rock (the opening "Muddy Water" sounds, in Keb' Mo's hands, a great deal like the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman"). When this works, as it does on Slow Down's title track, it works very, very well. Some of the ballads, though, sound a little bland, and when the album returns to the tight, rock-inflected "Soon As I Get Paid" or the funky "A Letter to Tracy," it's refreshing. The real treats, however, come late in the album. With "Love in Vain" and "God Trying to Get Your Attention," Mo' gets down to the roots, and the sheer simplicity of the closing "I'm Telling You Now" is nothing short of beautiful, allowing Mo's considerable talent as a singer and guitarist to shine through. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST BLUES ALBUMS EVER! February 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
After seeing Keb' Mo' at various blues concerts over the last few years I finally got enough determination to buy several (3) of his CD's simultaneously at This was- by far!- the best of all three. In short, this album is a virtual flawless blues expression capturing the full range of Keb's multiple ablilities.

The vocals are extremely soulful on a level that can be compared to Muddy Waters. And they seemed to be recorded more "up front" then the other Keb' Mo' CD's I bought having exceptional clarity and intonations. The music tracks recorded quality seems to be above the other 2 as well. They are more mature and complex with weaves of slide guitar with accordians, harmonica's, banjos, mandolins and back up vocals totally complimenting and underlining this unique blues artist's intrinsic musical abilities. On this CD his acoustic guitar is played with more pronounced deliberate rhythms as well.

I can not stop listening to this album for the last week playing it several times a day. I feel so darn priveledge to being living at the same time as this artist. It's like all young blues fans out there get another chance to experience the likes of a seasoned blues master like a Muddy Waters and Johnny Lee Hooker (who may have never had a chance appreciated them while they were still living).

Being a blues fan for over 20 years and having over 200 blues CD's I can confidentaly say that on this album all the ingredients seem to come together to put Keb Mo on a plane of those great blues masters. You got to buy this! Its not only the best Keb' Mo' album I've heard -it's definitely in the top 5 of all my blues CD's. Period. (2/2003)

5.0 out of 5 stars Real blues played with in a 90's style January 14, 2000
By slider
Format:Audio CD
I never heard of this guy until he landed in Amazon's Recommendation list to me. And am I happy it did. What a great album. Not a bad song on the entire CD. Keb plays the blues like they were meant to be played - with feeling and depth. He reminds me of a throwback to the early days of blues - 40's and 50's to be exact. Muddy Waters basically invented the current blues lineup that you see in many blues bands today. That is one that has a guitar, bass, drums, piano and harp, with the guitar palyer either doubling on vocals or the use of a second guitarist. Keb goes back even further, before Muddy changed everything. He uses simple production values combined with even simpler arrangements. There is nothing fancy on this album whatsoever. But the beauty, and this is what makes this an outstanding album, is that it works. All of it. He uses subtle chord changes and progressions that remind one of Hooker and T-Bone Walker. Both of whom relyed on simple melodic figures to display both emotion and depth in both their playing and singing. The guitar never overpowers the singing and vice versa. If you are seeking blues the way they were meant to be played pick this up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great One From Keb' Mo' November 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Keb' Mo' is one of my favorite new Blues artists. He's proven during the past few years that he can play Delta Blues with the best of them while maintaining a level of production quality that is enviable. He can add acoustic style Blues to urban beats and sound equally well in both at the same time. he has immense musical integrity.
this recording is a shining example of what Keb' Mo' can do. The Cd contains mostly original compositions with a smattering of classic Blues. He sounds great on both, playing guitar and harmonica like one of the greats from the old days. His singing is fresh, yet never sounds out of place.
keb' Mo' proves that Blues has a future, that it can hang onto it's roots, yet still remain fresh and vital. I definitely recommend this album.

Keb' Mo' has crafted an eclectic set of songs for this album. All share the elements that make the blues great; story telling lyrics that cut a slice from life, foot-tapping rhythm, a deep, rich bass line and a little bottle neck guitar.
The cuts range from soulful ballads like "Henry" and "I Don't Know" to funky numbers like "I Was Wrong" and "A Better Man." All share clean lyrics and positive messages - there is no need to put the kids to bed before you put this one on.
If you like contemporary blues, done well, by an artist who is a leader in the genre, get this album. I think you will appreciate every song.

I would have to say that I have listened to Keb Mo's first two albums more than I have done anything else over the last year. That's why I was so fired up about the release of "Slow Down." Unfortunately, this album did nothing for me. If you're like me, and you love the soft roll of Keb's guitar, and the scratchy wail of his voice then this isn't the album for you. It's too upbeat, peppy, not bluesy at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD- Keb doesn't disappoint. November 8, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I have enjoyed seeing Keb' live at the House of Blues in Orlando and have enjoyed his first two C.D.'s. This third C.D. was a delight as well. It combines a great mix of smooth, classy, melodic blues tunes and throws in some new Mo' like lyrics that make you grin i.e. "Sittin' here in my problem, what am I gonna' do now.?" It's a must have for fans and a great intro for those who've never heard him.
