Robert Plant - Angel Dance

Biography

When Robert Plant collected the 2009 Grammy for Album of the Year for Raising Sand, and a further five more for his work with bluegrass singer Alison Krauss, it confirmed what has been apparent, that Plant is one of the few musicians of his generation whose appetite for musical innovation remains keen.

His incredible new album Band Of Joy was recorded at Gillian Welch and David ... Read more in Amazon's Robert Plant Store

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Robert Plant. This isn't Led Zep 2 29 Mar 2007
By Moz
Format:Audio CD
This is an ecclectic collection of cover versions - not bland copies of the originals but thoughtful and provocative reworkings. 'Hey Joe' becomes a sonic acrobatic drive through the cosmos, 'Song to the Siren' (always a treat, whoever does it) a gentle lament and 'One More cup of Coffee' a delicate introspection with muted vocal. Justin Adams seems to have brought some transendental N African qualities with him from his time with Jah Wobble's Invaders.

'Morning Dew' and 'Fixing to Die' contrast each other dramatically but open the album and set the tone perfectly - a great reflection of what's to come. Porl Thompson adds a second guitar so that the two players are almost fencing at times. Plant becomes a passenger. 'Red Dress' (a rocker)and 'Darkness Darkness' (a moody drawl) are also stand out tracks where I've never heard the originals but now I'm curious. I'll bet they sound nothing like these versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamland - Robert Plant 27 Jun 2002
By Phil
Format:Audio CD
Takes a bit of getting used too but when you finally get the feel for this album it really is excellent.
Plant has that unmistakable voice, but on this album it really is superlative. The music is a welcome change and proves that Plant can not only hack it with the rest, but clearly is better than the best. Try to take time to listen to the music with headphones on, as a lot of the subtle production & mixing is lost when listening through speakers. Don't judge this album based on the fact that most of it made up of cover versions, the Plant interpretation/execution is unique & very cleverly delivered. The other tracks are brilliant as well. The single I have no doubt will be received with great gusto by those who appreciate good music, but I don't think the current singles "charts" have a space for this type of quality music,(I hope I am wrong). Well done Robert Plant & band a superb work of art & something no doubt they are proud of.
This is an album which you must own, and I have no doubt that it will be a great addition to the Robert Plant collection.
BUY IT NOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plant's voice still lightyears ahead 31 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
I first listened to this on holiday in France. My brother had bought a copy on a day out in one of the cities in Provence.
We put it on the car stereo on the way home and listened to it from start to finish.
By the time we pulled up to our villa, both my father and I had vowed not to leave the country without our own copies.
This album is essentially a list of cover-versions, but don't be mislead. Each and every one of these tracks has been soaked in Plant's own styling and his voice drips rich textures over each track.
The opener, as I learnt from Mr Plant himself in concert at the Hammersmith Appolo, was written in 1939 by an old bluesman on death row in America and is as good a piece of simple blues done magnificently well as you could hope to hear outside of the mississippi delta.
Each and every song on this album would stand up on its own but there are two tracks that linger in my mind after listening.
Firstly, his version of Tim Buckley's "Song To The Siren" is so pitch-perfect to be truly moving and a song that both sinks you into a love-torn despair and lifts you with its sheer beauty at the same time. Just magnificent musicianship.
The second track is his version of "Hey Joe". Who else in their right minds would EVER even consider trying to out-do Jimi Hendrix?
The scary thing is he produces a version so dark, brooding and sinister whilst remaining totally controlled, that he pulls it off! This is a very different version to Hendrix' and as such it is not possible to say which is better. I simply say this is how I had always imagined that song should be. After all, the story is a dark one, so should the song be.
In conclusion, for anyone who likes Led Zeppelin, go have your faith reconfirmed.

5.0 out of 5 stars not rock n roll -but i like it! 25 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
Planties done it again- another ecletic mix of musical expressions.I kinda like eastern styles of music, so this certainly aroused my interest.
'Fixin to die'- i found hypnotic and couldn't stop humming it after the first play, but i guess my favourite would be 'Mornin Dew,' Plants voice is so tender on this i feel 16 and in love for the first time! 'One more cup of coffee' and 'Song to the Siren' have a similar effect.....
I could go on and review every track, but others have already been there.The whole album is is an interesting, enjoyable listening experience.
I went to see Plant at Manchester on the 20th Oct and may i say it was the best i have ever seen him.He seemed happier and so he should be -with an album and live performance of this calibre.

3.0 out of 5 stars Work in Progress 19 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wholeheartedly admire Robert Plant for the way he has conducted himself since the demise of Led Zep. He has taken risks, explored the roots of his music and branched out into interesting new areas. All this, while mostly (I haven't forgotten that sort of lukewarm disco period.) remaining true to his musical values. This is him exploring, but the music is easier to admire than to like.

Given who Plant is working with here, one desperately wants it to be successful. But it isn't. The melodies are missing and the work seems heavy and laborious. It took the wonderful Alison Krauss to put a real spring in Robert's step. I see this record as the great man feeling his way towards the serendipitous meeting with Alison in T Bone's studio when they raised sand.

If you don't own "Raising Sand", buy that. If you do, you might like this, but don't expect too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not breathtaking, but enjoyable
Plant never reached the peaks of awesomeness that he did with Led Zeppelin, but he's released some decent LPs to this day. This is one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plantastic!
As other reviewers have said, Robert Plant's voice and style have matured from Led Zep and earlier solo days - this is a similar ablum to the more recent 'Band of Joy'. Read more
