Blues critic Eric Campfens has a new review for Doug MacLeod and Exactly Like This in both Blueszine and Maxazine. Read the English translation below and see the reviews in the original Dutch using the above-mentioned links.
“A musical storyteller is a way you could describe Doug MacLeod best. And after nineteen studio albums, several live CDs, DVDs, various awards and nominations, and songs covered by several artists, he is a singer-songwriter of importance. His new album “Exactly Like This” confirms this reputation once more.
On this album he is accompanied by an excellent band with Mike Thompson (piano), Jimi Bott (drums, percussion) and Denny Croy (bass). The eleven songs are obviously written by Macleod himself and form, as befits a good songwriter, small stories in a musical coat. Even after so many albums, the man continues to fascinate us with his storytelling. Great.” —Eric Campfens (also translated by Eric Campfens)
