Tinsley Ellis: Speak No Evil Review

Tinsley Ellis has been on the blues scene for decades. His last album, The Moment of Truth was one of the best blues albums of the decade.

Speak No Evil
is the follow up and Ellis continues to rock the blues. If you’ve listened to Tinsley’s previous albums though there isn’t much new here. That isn’t to say it’s a bad album, but it’s more of the same.

Ellis does some pretty impressive slide work on “Rock Slide” and has some dirty riffage on the thunderous “Grow A Pair.” While the album is solid it doesn’t meet the bar set by The Moment of Truth, but most albums do not.

The Review: 7.5/10
