Zum Album « Stony Road »
"Chris Rea has now turned his awesome talent to his first love, the blues, which he performs with the eerie, haunting, soulful beauty that is unique to him."
Fran Leslie, Blues in Britain

" …. a cathartic journey marinated in the Blues, with Rea's keening slide guitar to the fore - …. that Rea has created an original Blues album comes as no surpise to longterm followers - after all his gruff vocal style, intense slide guitar and grip on Real Life issues were not so much hints as neon signposts …"
Pete Sargent, Blues Matters

"These twenty cathartic songs define the very essence of Chris Rea as master songwriter and true bluesman. His soul laid bare, this is unequivocally the most honest and accomplished work of his career."
Colin Palmer, Rock 'n Reel

"An immensely moving musical journey into one man's heart and soul"
Tim Cooper, Mail on Sunday

Montreux Jazz Festival"

Heavenly moment with Chris Rea and his miraculous solos …."

TV Hören & Sehen 30.09.2002

" With harmonica, fiddle and a lot of bottleneck guitar STONY ROAD meets the demands of even conservative popes of the blues."
Stereoplay 01.10.2002

"STONY ROAD totally depends on its vividness."
Super Illu 30.09.2002

"The British singer and slide-guitar-player put all the thoughts and feelings of this time into a thoughtful album, which showed nothing any more of the sweet pop of bygone years - only his husky voice, which seems to have been specially made for the original blues-pattern."
