Charlie Key has written a very personal review of Stevie Nimmo’s ‘Sky Won’t Fall’ on The Blues Cafe blog, it worth a read in full. He explains:
“I’ve waited a few weeks to write this review, just to check for my own sanity that I am not the only person on the planet getting hyped about this album. However, Sky Won’t Fall is flying and there is not a lot out there right now that can stop it, no doubt much to the delight of record label Manhaton Records.”
“From the imperial attack of the opener Chains Of Hope, a true rock and roll firecracker, bouncing to the almost country-esque ballad Walk The Thin Line, to then buzzing to the sexy riffs of Nimmo’s guitar on that wonderful slow blues that is Gambler’s Roll, Sky Won’t Fall is like a series of pyrotechnical fireworks that dazzle the listeners in every track of the album.”
Blues in Britain made Stevie Nimmo’s tour with Ben Poole their front cover for their March edition. It also featured an in depth interview with both artists alongside album reviews. They said about Stevie’s ‘Sky Won’t Fall’: “The explosive opener ‘Chains of Hope’ could be mistaken for Gary Moore at his rocking Thin Lizzy best, such is the impact of this barnstorming introduction. If there is a superior performance and a better produced album than this in 2016 it is going to be a very special year for the blues.”
Classic Rock have selected Stevie’s track ‘Change’ from ‘Sky Won’t Fall’ to feature on the February 2016 CD cover mount. So if you want to sample the album – grab a copy of Classic Rock The Blues Magazine!
They have also shortlisted the track ‘Change’ on their “Heavy Rotation” office listens saying “Stevie has a honeyed blues-rock voice and a love of commercial anthem retro-flavoured rock. This one is a little more soulful than the rest.”
