Album Review: "The Devil Always Collects" by Brian Setzer (9/10)

The Devil Always Collects

Surfdog Records

Producers: Brian Setzer and Julian Raymond

It’s been over two years since his “Gotta Have the Rumble” release and over four years since he embarked on a tour. But after a break in the action Setzer’s back with, arguably, one of his best. You can’t deny his incendiary guitar work, smooth vocals and artful blend of rockabilly, swing and retro cool. And jazzy acrobatic numbers like “What’ll it Be Baby Doll” and “Black Leather Jacket” are well crafted and seal the deal. – Eric Harabadian
