Review by j. poet

Man from Another Time follows in the footsteps of his breakthrough with a raw, unpolished sound that showcases Steve's skills on guitar, banjo, and diddley bo. The album was cut in real time on analog tape, and sounds as warm and funky as Steve himself. "The Banjo Song" is a hard-luck tale that shows off Steve's moaning vocals and haunted banjo picking. "That's All" is a John Lee Hooker-style trance blues driven by Dan Magnusson's four-on-the-floor drumming, Steve's propulsive, fuzzy electric guitar licks, and an exuberant vocal. "Seasick Boogie" is a three-note stomper that sustains your interest by the force of Steve's wailing vocals, rhythm guitar work, and Magnusson's inventive percussion work. Steve digs deep into the roots of the blues on "Dark," a guitar and moaning vocal meditation on mortality, and "Just Because I Can (csx)" the melancholy lament of a railroad hobo given a deadpan vocal and enriched by Steve's acoustic guitar work, full of icy slides and stinging bent notes.
