Glenn Hughes, bass player, ex Deep Purple, singer of legendary status and a man of more come backs than most, delivers an album with an amazing cachet. There is not one song on it that I can recall when not listening to it!
Is it funky? Yes, it has moments of great funk.
Is it rock? Yes, at times there is no doubt.
Is it good? Well, that is a harder question to answer. I have listened to it all the way through at least 5 times, it is easy to throw on and let run, and yet I cannot recall any of the tunes afterwards. This is most unusual. I have an iPod with over 4500 songs on it that I can recall with ease and be able to name within seconds. That just is not happening here.
Plus points are - good playing, good singing, good use of brass-although more would have been better, decent production.
Minus points - none of the tunes are catchy/memorable and a terrible sleeve design.
If you are a fan I am sure this album will be worth getting, if not check out Glenns tremendous contribution to Deep Purple.
