Q - 11/94, p.1524 Stars - Excellent - "...A sound that's fat and sharp at once - that's what peerless Nashville producer Barry Beckett gave Etta James in 1990..."
Down Beat - 9/904 Stars - Very Good - "...an impressive new album...a gritty, cut-to-the-bone-of-raw-emotion collection of tunes..."

Blues belter Etta James came off a long period of drug rehab to make a comeback in 1989 with her first post-Chess album, SEVEN YEAR ITCH, a roots-conscious recording for Island. The follow-up, STICKIN' TO MY GUNS, is quite a different affair. While James's singing style is unchanged, and as ferocious as ever, there's much more of a "contemporary" feel to the production, with aggressive beats, popping bass, digital-sounding recording, and even a guest rap interlude on one track. James would soon depart Island for Elektra.
