"The Strangers Blues" is a thoughtful piece about reminiscing, with Garner's warm vocals and touching lyrics blending well. "Don't Start Crying" is a slow blues tune illustrating the artist's versatility. His sense of humor shines through on "Keep the Money" and "PMS," the latter song offering a tongue-in-cheek condolence to his baby when she gets those "once a month blues."
"Out in the Country" and "I'll Run Cross You" are two more fine originals, both examples of Garner's strong writing. Standing Room Only rocks along with a top -notch band to keep things smoking, and "Last Encore" ends things on a high note with an energetic farewell. It is another masterfully crafted collection of sophisticated modern blues songs.

Although his songwriting slips a little here ("PMS" was an idea that should have never been executed), Standing Room Only confirms Larry Garner's position as a tough blues guitarist and dynamic performer. Despite a few weak cuts, there's still a number of very strong songs, and Garner's flair for gritty, swampy performances makes the album quite enjoyable -- it just falls a little short of the high quality of his previous masterworks.
