We gave it a B+

With his tattooed arms and Mohawk-pompadour, Dale Watson cuts an impressive figure. But it’s his music that makes a real impression. On Blessed or Damned, Watson does honky-tonk the old-fashioned way, without regard for radio, only for real-life themes (truckers, cheaters, sausage and eggs) and instrumental solos as authentically roadhouse as sweat-stained shirts and a neon tan.
