U Golubanovu slučaju stvaranja albuma, nikad se ne zna s čime će vas pogoditi. Gledajući njegovu diskografiju, nalazimo delta i country blues, zydeco, rock’n’roll i ethno (world) glazbu. Glazbu je snimao kao sirovi delta duo zvuk sve do bogate instrumentalne orkestracije do 20 glazbenika u jednoj pjesmi. Album BLOW JUNKIE, njegov šesti studijski uradak, ne podsjeća niti zvukom niti sadržajem na njegove prethodnike. Sastavljen je od energičnog blues rocka i autorskih pjesama na engleskom jeziku, odsviran je u nekoliko sati studijskog snimanja u klasičnoj električnoj formaciji bas, gitara, bubnjevi i usna harmonika. Goluban se ovdje prvi puta pojavljuje kao autor engleskih tekstova. Poveznica, konstanta njegove karijere je usna harmonika koja postaje zrelija, moćnija, jasnija i definitivno originalna.

When Goluban creates an album, you never see what’s coming. Look back at his discography and his six studio albums reveals delta and country blues, zydeco, rock’n’roll and world music. He’s been recording his music from a raw delta duo sound to the full instrumental arrangement with 20 musicians playing one song. With his 6th album “Blow Junkie” (2014), Tomislav is back to his roots. Good old blues-rock, stripped to three instruments (guitar, bass and drums) to make the point that even this raw and simple sound can be easily enjoyed. On the album harp plays the leading role and the old blues mantra “less is more” is well established here. For the first time, Goluban here appears as an author of songs in English. A link, but also a constant value in his carreer is his harp, which becomes more and more powerful, clear, grown and definitely original.

Tomislav is a fine harmonica player that takes control of the stage and puts on a very energetic show. He was a pleasure to watch and would recommend anyone to see his entertaining show.
David Barrett, 2005

Tomislav Goluban plays and sings with strong passion and the occasional flash of humor. He is, without a doubt, my favorite Croatian blues player.
Joe Filisko, 2004

We encountered him for the first time in 2003, at the Harmonica Masters Workshop; a musician with the most gripping scenic performance we have ever seen. In retrospect, he didn’t need to play even a note, everyone was already on their knees. His performance was unbelievably amazing!
Harp Online, 2004

Croatia’s Tomislav Goluban is a true student of traditional American blues and rock. He deserves and “A” for “Blow Junkie.” It’s upbeat, clever and funny. It will put a smile on your face and tap in your toes. Creative take on “Messin’ with the Kid.” “Blow Junkie” is a nonstop party. I keep wondering when Tomi will come up for air!”
Tim Parsons, Blues Festival Guide (SAD, 2014)
