“Powerful, soul-stirring…a legendary boundary-pushing icon of modern blues,” says NPR MUSIC. “Walker’s guitar playing is fine and fierce,” states BILLBOARD. “It’s a compelling album that displays a master at the height of his game. They say Roots musicians age like fine wine, which certainly rings true with Walker. ‘Weight of the World’ is a resounding statement and quite possibly the beginning of the most remarkable chapter of a storied career,” claims BLUES ROCK REVIEW (2023 Album Review of ‘Weight of the World’).
