"...his vocals are a blend of blues intensity and style with urban soul. ...incredibly soulful and funky! ...it’s as if every song chastises me for never having heard of this man or his music before now. ...a combination of multiple genres while still maintaining a great late night, urban club feel. No matter if you want to call it soul, blues, or R&B, Billy Jones can really put some emotion into his music. ...at times dark, mysterious, downright funky, and always compelling. ...and as I say all the time, that is what music, and especially blues, is all about. ...each of the songs on the album guarantees I’ll be back for more."
"Here’s a lick that caught my attention in “Love Nobody Else”: “She said, ‘All I wanted was for you to love me. But you only love yourself. And you so wrapped up in yo’ own ego that you can’t love nobody, love nobody, love nobody else’”. There’s a profound message here … On one level, the lady in this song exhibits some emotional intelligence. She “gets it”. I see that Billy Jones Bluez “gets it” also … given that he incorporates this underlying theme into his music. It will stir your heart, your intellect and your soul."
"...from the root to the fruit. ...blues/funk meets hip-hop!"
"One of the very Best Authentic Modern Blues albums in recent memory."
"Billy Jones brings back the Thrill that once belonged to Hendrix & Stevie Ray. I'd recommend this to any avid blues listener and I look forward to hearing more from the reclusive Billy Jones."
“Billy Jones certainly has got what it takes to be the next King of The Blues. The Arkansas native is totally his own man with a show-stopping style. His CD on is one of the Best Modern Blues discs of the last decade.”
"It's a first person rumination about "growing up in the ghetto" that packs a poignant wallop. The message is deep and heartfelt... lyrically-inspired Contemporary R&B. Jones has a voice that will enchant you. This is a fine, soulful album."
"While I love traditional blues artists such as Son House, Howlin’ Wolf, etc., it was just so damned nice to listen to something that speaks eloquently in the tradition of those older artists, and yet manages to bring something new and funky to the table."
