What I Live For is a white-hot sophomore effort by Tab Benoit, showcasing a more assured and confident guitarist. Although he hasn't changed his basic musical approach -- it's all hard-driving Southern blues -- his sound is fuller and more direct this time around, proving that his debut was no fluke. ~ Thom Owens
