AllMusic Review by

Don Cavalli's second album is a classic blend of moments of interest in a framework that just doesn't quite hold the interest. Within the framework of a fairly standard electric blues set, turns such as the repeated "how how how" on "Aggression" signal Cavalli's best gift, an ability to lock into a key moment and make it work in an almost obsessive fashion. But on the flip side, the fact that it is a standard electric blues performance means that there won't be much to captivate a listener who isn't already in love with that sound. Cryland isn't a disaster by any means -- well-recorded, enthusiastic sounding songs are always a treat -- but it's in the end pleasant, not striking.
