If you’re looking for some new music to jam out to while you’re working from home, then you have got to listen to Joe Bonamassa’s latest album, Time Clocks, which just dropped today.
For those of you unfamiliar with Joe Bonamassa, he’s an incredible blues rock guitarist, singer and songwriter who’s hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, featured on the cover of virtually every guitar magazine. This blues-rock titan has redefined the genre and brought it into the mainstream, with twenty-four #1 Billboard blues albums to his credit. After listening to Time Clocks, I can tell you that it’ll likely become #25.
A friend turned me onto Bonamassa a few years ago, and I was blown away by his artistry, the music a fusion that combines elements of blues and rock music. I’ve been eager to catch one of his live shows, as Bonamassa is one of today’s top live performers, and he’s known to spend 200+ days a year on tour. Unfortunately the pandemic put his crazy touring schedule on hold, during which time he worked on this latest album, the Time Clocks title likely a nod to that time spent stuck at home.
On the plus side, Bonamassa Time Clocks is one of his best albums yet, a 10-track masterpiece that has you on the edge of your seat throughout, a musical journey like no other that’ll have you bobbing your head the second ‘Notches’ kicks off with that slamming heavy blues riff of his. From then on, it’s a headlong rush to the final slow, melodic ‘Known Unknowns’. While I loved the whole album, ‘Notches’ is definitely my favorite track of the bunch.
