"...On his second album, this freewheeling traditionalist works his alchemy on sweet country blues, gritty juke-joint jive, uptempo R&B, and even breezy, George Benson-style jazz-pop..." - Rating: B+

On his second album, Keb' Mo' begins to expand the borders of his Delta blues by recording with a full band on a couple of tracks and attempting more expansive, rock-based song structures. The attempts aren't entirely successful and it's ironic that he decided to try rock-oriented material after he received such praise for his traditionalist debut. Still, there are a few songs on the album that rank with the best on his first album, which suggests that Just Like You is merely a sophomore slump. ~ Thom Owens
