The advance notices have been very positive but I’m a bit underwhelmed so far, particulalry underwhelmed by the opening track which is a bad start. It just seems to say the same thing over and over again.
Great guitar sound with a touch of Mark Knopfler at his more fiery at times and hs voice is as strong as ever.
It is a dilemma after an artist establishes a solid body of work, how to maintain the principal feel of your oeuvre without it just sounding like another [insert name of artist] record.
Mind you it is a heap better than the new Lucinda, but that’s another post.
