NINE BELOW ZERO Chilled/Refrigerator


Chilled: Excellent…with almost audiophile quality production and mastering…

Refrigerator: …has become my favourite car CD…It’s worth the price for this disc alone, a **** outing. (July 2010)

A two CD pairing of albums that previously saw release on the bands own label in the early 2000s with a handful of bonus tracks thrown in for good measure…Worth a punt but play disc 2 first I’d say… it’s excellent.

Bill Leslie, (July 2010)

Chilled: …a flawless and perfectly executed album from start to finish

Refrigerator: …if you like modern rock ‘n blues…then you’ll have no problem sinking your teeth into these songs (August 2010)

Chilled: …a largely acoustic album it is, as the title suggests, a relaxed effort from a time when everyone and his roadie was putting out their own “unplugged” release. Where it’s good it really is very good with stand-outs such as the sombre mood of “Loaded Gun” or scene-setter “I Should Have Left It Up To You” impressing hugely…

Refrigerator: From the instant hook of opener “Money Or The Man” through cuts of the quality of the groovin’ “Cinnamon Man” and the harmonica drenched “Bad Behaviour” this is much more what I’d expect from a band billed as both “legendary” and “London’s finest rhythm and blues group” in the sleeve-notes accompanying the release … it’s excellent.

…energised old style rhythm and blues package

NINE BELOW ZERO It’s Never Too Late


Three decades on the scene, this band show no sign of slowing down, and there’s no reason to do so… The business is familiar and, therefore, effortless, yet one is guaranteed to get all sweaty in such a heated atmosphere.

Glenn Tillbrook, who added his voice and instruments to the half of the dozen tracks on the offer, must have been soaked to the bone most of the time, whether operating sitar on the dirty groove of “A Man Out Of You” or clapping to the infectious acoustic raga of “You’re The Man”.

Things get even funkier with the title track’s ensemble singing, and heavier and oilier with “I’m So Alone” where slide guitar shake it nicely. Add the humorous lyrics to the mix, and there’s a strong contender for the “Brit Blues Album of the Year” laurel, even though re-writing “Gimme Some Lovin’” for “Hit The Ground Running” wasn’t the best idea. **** (September 2009)

…the band’s best effort since ‘Ice Station Zebra’. (September 2009)

…an impressive, modern sounding blues rock record…There isn’t one ounce of filler (November 2009)

It’s an album abundant with a passion for blues-inspired rock… (September 2010)

All in all, riveting performances, even the soundcheck…a great testament to their talent and abandon… (November 2008)

…without doubt, one of the UK’s premier blues outfits

Classic Rock Society (December 2008)

…a tough, enthusiastic and highly concentrated blend of R&B…

Sean McGhee, RocknReel (December 2008)

Mark Feltham’s harmonica work remains a joy to behold throughout this energised old style rhythm and blues package
