When I originally heard Lang on his first album, Lie to Me, I knew he was a noteworthy musician. What I didn't know was how much better he would get with time. Lang was a born blues-man with a rocker soul and his latest album is definitely a positive evolution. The disk starts and ends with the unpretentious blues Lang is capable of generating. The first single "Red Light", is a dreamy ballad with a melancholy introspection on the moment that is life. Furthermore, there are several interesting flavours spinning around this album. Lang's distinctive style comes through on this 14 songs blues tour de force. Considering that Lang's first two albums sold over a million copies each, there is no reason Long Time Coming shouldn't do as well. Actually, there is reason for it to do that much better: Lang creates an empathic experience for his listeners with the strength of his voice alone. For someone so young, he sounds as if he has experienced a lifetime of love and suffering. As many have said, someone so young has no business writing and singing music this good. If this album is a clue then Lang can only get better as years go on.
