    FAN COMMENT from YOUTUBE on NO REASON BLUES: If anyone wonders why people who hear the blues don't tend to move too far away from it, you've just explained it perfectly in four minutes, Chris.

    Latest Citizen Reviews Yeah! Blue Attitude 2.8.2010 @ 1:26pm Well, I've been listening to guitar based music for 40 years or so and can honestly say that this is some of the best playing I have ever heard! Just outstanding. Phrasing like Santana in places but *way* better than anything Santana could ever hope to do (no offense to Santana fans). Very nice indeed! ~Dave
