Aesthetically, the Black Water album cover is simple, dark and has just a hint of grain. It shouts low-down dirty blues without trying too hard to look edgy. The night-time landscape shot of a bayou-looking river scene on the inner sleeves of the cover was a great choice and the complimentary fold-out Black Water illustration inside is a pleasantly surprising find. However, the lyrics of the songs were not included in the sleeve. At first, I thought it would have been nice to follow the words of the songs and gain a better understanding of what Clark is singing about, but after a while I realized that his songs are so damn catchy that – for better or worse – you’ll learn the lyrics in no time.

On this album, Clark remains true to his blues/country-soul style from the first riff to the last. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say he hopped straight off the back of a dusty, old pick-up truck and into the studio. He offers the listener a range of sounds that have a distinct American, deep-south feel from good ol’ fashioned blues to 50s-style rock-a-billy tunes. (
