(2015/Alligator) 12 tracks.
Method To My Madness finds Tommy Castro And The Painkillers at their very best. It is instantly a career-defining highlight in a lifetime full of them. From the opening one-two punch of everyman anthems Common Ground and Shine A Light to the full-tilt energy of the title track to the searing, deep soul ballad Died And Gone To Heaven, Tommy and the band are firing on all cylinders. From the bayou rock of 'Got A Lot' and the atmospheric, autobiographical 'Ride' to the reinvented version of the Clarence Carter hit 'I'm Qualified' and the emotional cover of B.B. King's 'Bad Luck', Tommy Castro And The Painkillers continue to break new ground while simultaneously having an incredible amount of fun.
