Not content with having taken the blues world by storm with their first two albums—"Shake Hands With Shorty" and "51 Phantom"—the AllStars have set their sites on the rock charts with "Polaris." With the addition of guitarist/drummer Duwayne Burnside (R.L. Burnside's son), the AllStars are a quartet, and their world boogie is, for the time being, a huge rock sound. From the boogie vibe of "Hard to Please" to the rock ballad "One to Grow On" and the formidable blues/ rock of the title track, the AllStars are a powerhouse. Luther Dickinson's guitar continues to be one of the nastier sounds in American music—and with brother Cody, the Dickinson Brothers demonstrate major chops as producers. The only limitations this band will know are those that are self-imposed.—PVV
