Mike Ross // The Clovis Limit Pt.2 // Album Review
Mike Ross returns with his latest offering The Clovis Limit Pt.2 October 30th and it is a real banger from the off. The album kicks off with ‘Thanks A lot’ a bluesy-swagger-infused number that shoots a statement of intent across the bow about what is to come. The number itself is like a rollercoaster, changing directing on a whim and keeping the listener fully engaged and on their toes throughout.
The album itself is deeply rooted in your Classic-Rock, Southern-Rock, Blues driven vibe with a gnarly side to it, Bitchin’ guitar-work and tasty vocal delivery shot out like bullets from a machine gun. The tracks will twist and weave keeping you guessing all along where Mike is taking you, but they always deliver. Gritty sounding guitars, sublime slide work and a dark ethereal sound make Mikes tracks resonate from the first to the last, you feel the pain behind the lyrics and get the sincerity of the songwriting in full. A multi-instrumentalist and producer, Mike has brought it all to the table here, there is no doubt in the quality and experience he has brought to this recording, the miles on the road, blood sweat, and tears that have gone into honing his craft which just shine through each and every track.
If you like your Blues-Rock, Southern-Rock, and dig your Classic-Rock then Mike Ross is for you, The Clovis Limit Pt.2 is a gritty piece of songwriting that you can sink your teeth into, steeped In quality and screaming of better days gone by.
