PopMatters

As it stands, Blak & Blu certainly isn’t legendary. But it’s a pretty good start.

Paste

Clark’s refusal to be pigeonholed as merely a great axman results in a diverse, sometimes confounding record that exhibits a still-evolving oeuvre while still showcasing the chops that got him to this point in his career.

Consequence of Sound

Like all good blues, he makes you feel his pain, but there could be a vast ocean of rage and heartache where there’s only a steady stream.
