Very well put together collection of great songs.

A very diverse album. You hear so many influences on this CD it's
astonishing. I grew up listening to great classic rock bands, and the
style in this CD brings to mind some great music. On the other hand the
songs here are origional and have a great
meaning and purpose. I would reccomend this CD
to anybody. Keep up the Good Work Buddy Lewis !!!
excellent vocals, arrangement, lyrics,
the ricky lewis band
is the absolute best music I've heard in such a very long time!!! The
group's heartfelt lyrics and arrangements bring back the day's of good

Reviewer: Eric Claxton
Ricky Lewis,you have
it all! It is apparent from the sound of this musical masterpiece. You
should be proud of this hard felt blues and rock collection. A true
musician and southern genius at work is what this CD shows. This is one
of my favorite blues CDs.
THAN WORDS CAN ONLY EXPLAIN THIS ALBUM !
Reviewer: DAVID "BIG D" CABRERA
THERES NO QUESTION THAT THIS IS A MUST HAVE ALBUM, NO MATTER WHAT KINDA
MUSIC YOUR INTO, I KNOW EVERYONE CAN RELATE TO THE LYRICS IN ONE OR MORE
OF THESE GREAT SONGS. HEY BUDDY KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND MAKE ANOTHER
GREAT LOVE SONG LIKE YOUR ALWAYS THERE !! THANKS
awesome, great to hear this kind of music
i really like this bluesy type of rock. it is
feel good music that lifts the mood, very inspiring. reminds
me of better times when the present is a little tough to deal with. love listening to it!!!
THis CD is awesome - Ricky's got the groove!
The best thing about this CD is that each song grabs you - they aren't
all alike, but vary in their styles and influences. If you haven't had an
opportunity to see him live, check him out - his guitar playing is
pop blues music
Reviewer: George P
As I listened to this, I kept thinking I had this guy figured out. I would
hear Clapton influence. Then the next song would start and I'd hear
Springsteen. I thought I heard some Little Feat influence there too. I
even heard a touch of Charlie Daniels Band on this CD. Lewis is hard to
pinpoint. The band is tight and the songs are very good.
Reviewer: robb corless
ricky lewis band is
awesome -the feelings i get from listening to his songs range from interspective true life feelings to good ol' rock and roll--my favorite song is do it for love--man
the guitar work is right there and the feeling in ricky's
voice just grab your soul--i predict that some day
in the near future this boy is going to be noticed--
Reviewer: A Varas
In our society of over produced music that has no soul it's very
refreshing to hear an artist that knows that it's the music that counts.
The cd has a slightly gritty feel to it which is reflective of the title,
because the things in life that count love, pain and struggle are never
clean or easy. I found the songs meaningful and inspirational on many
different levels. Technically the cd is very well done the guitar playing
is top notch and the vocals are good as well. This cd starts out with
hard driving sound that never stops, and in the end it will leave you
begging for more.
Powerful and indeed Dynamic Collection of Music
Reviewer: B. Lewis
The Ricky Lewis Band’s “Songs for the new Depression” is a masterful, yet
powerful and indeed dynamic work. The wide range of music styles and
artful handling of those styles shows maturity that usually only comes
after many years of music exposure. Masterful guitar playing through out,
with a very interesting spin with the metallic sound of the steel guitar
in “Down and Out Blues” plus the scratches made me think it was a 78 rpm
from the Jimmy Rogers area. The whole band is a stand out and the vocals
are great, it gets better every time you hear it.
Powerful, Musical, Funky, emotional and dynamic!!!
Reviewer: R Cowles
The Ricky Lewis Band CD is indeed an entertaining piece of work. The lead
voice is so unique and the power of the performance is great. This guy
really knows his stuff. It seems like he is well aquainted
with mutiple styles of popular music from many
time periods. There's a style of music for everybody included in this CD.
It's a clean and well recorded CD. The guitar playing in outstanding.
These songs are very rememberable and fun to
