A deep, rewarding album featuring powerful songs of sin and redemption set against Anders’ infectious synthesis of classic roots sounds. An intense, soul-stirring album ranging from gentle ballads to burning rockers, including some truly amazing guitar playing. “He has an impossibly great, soulful voice and the songs to match” – PASTE The album Osborne fans have been waiting for...so emotionally intense it feels like an explosion.
