It's been over two years since guitarist/singer Ana Popovic released her last album, but her latest, "Unconditional," has made it well worth the wait. Recorded in New Orleans, it successfully fuses classic and contemporary blues into music with high energy and lots of passion. Her guitar playing is amazing and her vocals are as smooth as honey. Soulful and virtuoso are words that come to mind when listening to her play. The album also features the amazing slide guitar of Sonny Landreth and the talents of Jon Cleary and David Torkanowski on hammond B3 and piano, Calvin Turner on bass and Doug Belote on drums. The title track, "Unconditional," has some unbelievable guitar work but also incorporates a beautiful piano which adds depth to the song. Jason Ricci makes a guest appearance and plays the harp, adding a unique and beautiful texture to the sound. I love the backbeat drumming on "Slideshow" that has a huge, pounding bass line and delivers with nothing short of a sonic boom. "One Room Country Shack" showcases Popovic's talent as a musician. She simply SHREDS the guitar on this song and it will leave you breathless. "Summer Rain" is another beautiful song that really shows the depth of Popovic's talents as a vocalist. She is sultry and powerful at the same time and the guitar solo somehow sounds like falling rain. If you like your blues straight ahead with touches of soulful jazz and beautifully raw vocals, you can't go wrong here. Highly recommended!

Ana's last album was a change of pace, what with falling in love and having a baby -- it was a different kind of album.

Unconditional is a return to form -- a blues album with outstanding guitar work, great vocals, and a wonderful collection of guest artists (Sonny Landreth and John Cleary from New Orleans where the album was recorded), as well as Jason Ricci on harmonica. Her songwriting is also excellent, as always. Her originals are mixed with a few old blues songs she loves. This album also showcases Ana's versatility. The instrumental slide duel with Sonny Landreth, "Slideshow," is a highlight.

Hopefully, this can be Ana Popovic's breakthrough album (they've all been excellent) in the U.S. Ana should be playing stadiums in this country instead of small clubs.

Bsides being hot (you may have noticed the cover), Ana really is an amzing slide player and song writer. Her singing is developing over time, as her accent sometimes stands in contrast to the great lyrics.
Sonny Landreth sits in on part of the CD< and they play very well together - he kind of pushes her along.
Overall, 4.5 out of 5....

Ana Popivic is my newest fave musician... She is kinda like Kenny Wayne Shephard in female form. Nice beat, great lyrics.

This is a refreshing set. Ana is certainly a great talent with great vocals and instrumentals. I'm surprised that we can see her play locally for $7. It's one of the few bargains left in the world. Unconditional is a very catchy song with her smooth vocals. I've listened to this CD several times a week and it remains fresh. If you like good music, give this a listen.

Great Blues music here. No fancy overdubs no crazy mixing. Just people playing live in the same room & in the moment. Ana is a very good guitar player as well as she is a very good singer. Ana has allways been a huge Sonny Landreth fan & thats her idol for slide guitar playing & they do a great slide guitar jam together & she can keep up. Great voice,great guitar playing. Right in the pocket on every song & may just be the best female blues guitar player since Bonnie raitt.

Vocals are outstanding and the guitar is even better. This is a must have CD if you like guitar blues. She plays with the best of them. Among others you can hear definite SRV influences especially in the latter parts of songs like the title track Unconditional. Stand out songs are Fearless Blues, Count Me In, Unconditional, Your Love Ain't Real, Voodoo Woman, and Soulful Dress. Best IMO is either Count Me In, Soulful Dress, or Unconditional. Not one disappointment. Fantastic tone with real soul in the playing. If you were only going to buy 1 new CD you couldn't go wrong with this. If you like SRV, Buddy Guy, Sass Jordan, Susan Tedeski etc. check it out, you'll be glad you did! Highest Recommendation!!!!

I enjoy blues sang with passion and hearing a guitar masterfully plucked, bent, abused and caressed by a talented soul and this is a fine example of blues done well.
