Robert Randolph and the Family Band: We Walk This Road Review

We Walk This Road is the highly anticipated follow up to 2006’s Colorblind. Does it measure up to the hype? Yes and no. There isn’t a bad track on the album, but there aren’t really any songs that will blow you away.

Colorblind was an incredible album and We Walk This Road heads into a new direction. Many of the tracks on We Walk This Road have an old school blues feel to them. Not just old school, but early 1900’s old school. With that said Randolph makes them feel fresh. One such track is the single “If I Had My Way” featuring Ben Harper, which is one of the best songs on the album.

One of the strengths of We Walk This Road is its diversity. This album really does have something for everybody with blues, funk, gospel, and hip-hop, yes you heard that right. Not to mention the great steel guitar work we’ve come to expect from Randolph.

While We Walk This Road doesn’t quite reach the standard set by Colorblind it is still a very solid album which can be played straight through from start to finish. How many albums are there like that?
