“In 2019, Clark is an exceedingly rare figure, a bluesman who has a major-label recording contract and a worldwide audience, one he has built by tearing up stage after stage, show after show. On This Land, his third major-label studio album, his songwriting has caught up with his playing. It has something to do with experience; and it has a lot to do with America in 2019, where division, frustration and seething anger can use an outlet with the historical resonance and emotional depth of the blues.” – Jon Pareles / The New York Times
“This Land is something new. The man’s prolific gifts now attached to the material with a far greater purpose than ever before. It’s the great rock-and- roll record you’ve been waiting for.” – Hits Daily Double
“Gary Clark Jr. is both of the past and the future…hard-driving riffs mixed with unexpected restraint. And when he sings…light, sweet and resonant.” – Time Magazine
“’This Land’… the most important song Clark has ever written. This Land [the album] ranges from Delta blues to dub reggae, Stax-style soul anthems and Prince-like epics, capturing Clark’s promise at a mind-blowing level.” – Rolling Stone
