Product Description

2012 album from the Blues great. Blues For The Modern Daze represents the guitar legend returning to his core Blues roots; creating his first blues album in 23 years as a bandleader. Trout shares that his inspiration for the album: 'was the country bluesman Blind Willie Johnson'. His music is so beautiful, primal, direct and deeply spiritual that I wanted to feel it at my back when we were cutting these songs'. These songs represent his songwriting and music at the zenith of his creative and personal growth.

Walter Trout has become my new favorite electric blues-man in 2014. I was familiar with some of Canned Heat recordings, but Walter is something else. Great musician and a singer, at pair with Britain's Gary Moore and Canada's Jeff Healey!!

HASH(0x9ebaea08) out of 5 stars THE Blues Album of 2012! April 24 2012
By Boomerocity - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Blues for the Modern Daze, Walter Trout's 21st solo album, is an absolute must-have for Trout and blues fans, alike. The reason why I say this is simple: It's brand spankin' new blues and it's phenomenal.

Unlike many blues albums that are being released today, Blues for the Modern Daze is not an album for of covers of blues standards. Don't get me wrong: I love hearing the various interpretations of blues standards by many artists. I don't get tired of them. However, when some new blues shows up on my radar, I scramble my auditory jet sensors and intercept the new tunes with a vengeance.

During my interview with Walter Trout about this album (go to and look under "Interviews" to check it out), the guitarist said that he recorded the album with his touring band without a lot of additional production baggage. The result is what you hear on the album will give you're a very clear indication of what you're in for if you see Trout perform live (and I highly recommend that you indulge yourself in such a treat. The dude puts on an incredible show!).

Every tune on this album is a treat to listen to and is deserving of multiple slaps of the repeat button. It's chock full of fresh blues tunes and played as it should be played. As I said in the Trout interview, if I could only play you one song from this album that serve as an advertisement of what you can expect from it, my choices would be a toss-up between Lonely and Brother's Keeper. Both are Boomerocity favorites and are soulful, thoughtful, heart-felt indictments against the isolation of modern society and the church - in that order.

Once either of those songs prompt you to buy the album, you'll be treated to a rich treasure chest of blues and rock. The album comes out of the chute with blues guns a-blazin' with Saw My Mama Cryin'. The tune lets you know straight away that you're in for a real treat.

It's hard not to go through and sing the praises of all 15 songs on this album. They're all great and worthy of endless listening. However, Blues For My Baby deserves special mention. The guitar work is superb and the lyrics bang-on.

Well, okay, another tune deserving of special mention is Recovery. Oh, and Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous and - ah, well, you get the point: the whole album is incredible. Buy the darn thing!

HASH(0x9ebaea5c) out of 5 stars A Stunning Blues Performance! April 24 2012
By M. Mariba - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Blues legend Walter Trout is back with a wonderful new CD release titled 'Blues For The Modern Daze'. He is certainly at his best in delivering these 15 great new songs in this CD : great blues guitar work, melody & vocals. Walter Trout provides wonderful guitar solos as in "Blues For My Baby" & "Brother's Keeper" among others that will thrill you to the bone & he is funny/humerous in the 48 seconds track "Puppet Master". Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Saw My Mama Cryin'", "Lonely", "Blues For My Baby", "Recovery", "All I Want Is You", "Brother's Keeper", "Blues For The Modern Daze": title track, slow-tempo/laid-back song with great guitar finger pick-ups, great choice of a title track to this album & "Pray For Rain". Great tracks include "The Sky Is Fallin' Down" (great harmonica), "Never Knew You Well" (pop-ish blues track), "Puppet Master" & "Money Rules The World" (great guitar overdrive). Okay tracks include "You Can't Go Home Again", "Turn Off Your TV" & "Lifestyle Of The Rich And Famous".

On overall, this is a wonderful blues album by Walter Trout, I enjoyed it a lot. Last time a had this fun listening to a blues album was with the 2011 Warren Haynes' CD 'Man In Motion'. A well deserved 5 star performance & a highly recommended CD listening!

HASH(0x9ebaed38) out of 5 stars Walter Trouts "Blues For The Modern Daze" July 11 2012
By Charles E. Compton Sr. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I very seldom write reviews. Expect typos/mis-spells from me. However, when a great, hard working Bues Artist such as Walter Trout finally hits Billboards Top 10 for over 2 months,as his own entity without any covers, and i read 1 crappy, unjustified, extremely judgemental review from a guy who is obviously stuck in his own little "Garden of Mysteries - In the Labyrinth" (yes, you know who you are), i'm not only going to give Walter the review i had planned, but then some. I wouldn't swet it Walt. Anyone who has followed Walts career knows that he has clawed his way up, never intending to ever reach the Top, but just being content with entertaining people world-wide for the sake of entertaining. The fact that he has played with more major Artists, on his stage, not thereis, speaks volumes. This latest album, with no covers, has meanigful as well as Spiritual lyrics, as well as possibly the finest guitar work he's ever performed. Walter ias a one take recording guy. He openly admits he does it spontaneously, and it won't ever come out exactly the same twice. Track #13; "Brother's Keeper", with a powerful message, as well astrack #7 "Turn Off Your TV", which we should all do more often, obviously passed right over Mister know it all's rediculously "broke down" review quoting Walters lyrics like he's this centurys newest prphet. Well Sir, you are completely wrong and obviously know nothing about real Blues music/lyrics. Walter has more than earned/worked for his dinner over the years, and continues to do so, with no ego what-so-ever. I do not need to defend Walter or his music anymore in this review. It speaks for itself, completely. I'd be giving Walter Trout & Family 10 stars +1 if it were possible. You are a true Friend Walt, and one of the finest human beings being i know, let alone Blues Artist. I bought the pre-release, knowing in advance i'd like it, let alone love it, and then see it climb the charts and stay there !! Congrats my Friend and an Honor well overdue. As for people of ignorance, like the one lousy reviewer so far, i haven't the time for his extra bagge, and i actually feel sad for him. Keep Rockin' Walter Trout & Blessings to All !!! Thank you. Respectfully, "Chuck" Charles E. Compton Sr. (RET) CW2 US Aemy Aviator and CEO Reef Rider Productions

HASH(0x9eca5270) out of 5 stars Walter Trout - Blues For The Modern Daze (Mascot Music, 2012) Feb. 19 2013
By Dimitri - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Walter Trout was born five years after Blues legend Blind Willie Johnson died. Notwithstanding this fact, Mr. Johnson became major inspiration for Walter Trout to record Blues For The Modern Daze.

Trout cut his teeth in gigs behind John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thornton, Pee Wee Crayton, Lowell Fulson and others. His debut release, Life In The Jungle, was immediate success in 1989 opening him opportunities to tour and record both in US and Europe.

Already an acclaimed Blues Rock star, Walter Trout felt he should go back to "first musical love" and for this reason he find an inspiration in Blind Willie Johnson's repertoire. Essence of classic songs like "Soul Of A Man", "Nobody's Fault But Mine" and others are driving this album.

All fourteen songs on this outing (plus one declamation, "Puppet Master") are written by Walter Trout and this fact, on its own, is demonstration of astonishing composing capabilities. Every song is deeply rooted in Blues, with no exception, and seasoned with accentuated guitar playing and relished voice through various styles thus representing outstanding exponent of the genre.

He's back to Blues roots after 23 years. Applaud!

HASH(0x9eca5288) out of 5 stars Walter new discovery! Sept. 11 2013
By Audioguy - Published on

I tried to branch out to other artists. I did this with Robin Trower, Alvin Lee and others. I was hooked on various artists but needed something else to balance out my musical needs. This guy, who I never heard of, astounds me. Very polished blues guitar and vocals. Worth looking closely into...very underated musician from Mayall's blues era. Worth owning this double quality LP.
