    JUST LIKE YOU won the 1997 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
    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

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (6/21/96, p.66) - "...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+
    Q (8/96, p.123) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...he's a fine acoustic picker, a witty songsmith and a hugely likeable live entertainer....his style has charm and vigour enough to transcend Blues-U-Like disposablity..."
