I love The Band and Robertson't writing in that group.
I like his imperfect voice and his unusual approach to guitar playing but, having said that, I've thought all of his solo endeavors were kind of hit and miss, including his first one, though that was probably his most consistent.
This album is OK, but it seems that after such a long wait there might be a few more interesting songs on it.
I've read that the Clapton collaborations are 10 years old.
It's not a bad album, but the next time I want a real shot of RR I'll probably go back and listen to his work with Mssrs Helm, Danko, Manuel and Hudson.

Having been a huge fan of The Band and also liked his 2nd solo album Storyville and listened to the entire album on npr.org - I couldn't wait to invest in this -his latest effort. Robbie cleverly uses backing singers to enhance his own "lightweight" singing style and the guitar work by himself and various guests is awesome.
There are several tracks that you buy into immediately (Straight Down The Line & He Don't Live Here No More)and some that grow on you after several "listens".

Several reviewers have made note of the wait since Robbie's last album (13 years)- in my opinion his 3rd & 4th albums (based on Native American chants) were hugely disappointing - you need to go back to 1991 and the release of Storyville to have heard anything as good as this.

There are clear references to things in his past that in hindsight he possibly regrets and in This Is Where I Get Off - I presume he refers to the acrimonious split up of The Band and the bitterness that ensued. I understand that he is considering writing his memoirs - it will be interesting to note the differences between his recollections and those of Levon Helm in This Wheel's On Fire.
As my title suggests - well worth the wait..............

I don't think that Robbie has made a completely successful album since leaving the Band and on this his fifth solo album he recruits Eric Clapton (who co-wrote three tracks with Robertson), Steve Winwood, Trent Reznor, Tom Morello and Robert Randolph to help him out. The rhythm section throughout is bass player Pino Palladino and drummer Ian Thomas. The album is produced by Robertson and Mariusl De Vries and has a similar layered sound to his 1987 solo debut produced by Daniel Lanois.

We get off to a great start with "Straight down the line" which sounds really good but goes on a bit too long. I also really liked the bluesy "The right mistake" and "When the Night Was Young" and "Fear of Falling", featuring Clapton on vocals, sounds very much like one of Clapton's own tracks. "This is Where I Get Off" is a nice personal track that tells about Robbie leaving the Band and is probably the track that sounds most like the Band. The other tracks are all OK, very atmospheric with a large variety of sounds and all sound very good, Clapton plays some nice guitar and Palladino's bass is outstanding. I couldn't really see the point of the demo versions - which were not that different from the finished songs but we do get the extra track "Houdini" which is quite nice.

For me there aren't enough really good songs here, the two instrumentals sounded like fillers and there is certainly nothing as good as Robbie's best work for the Band. All though saying that he has definitely moved on from the Band and is trying something different sonically, while his lyrics still reflect his intrest in the American scene and US history. This is certainly an interesting record that could well grow on me.

Always been a fan of robbie robertson so was keen to sample the new album. Bought it and it is top quality with the likes of eric clapton co-writing a number of tracks and playing some nice guitar.

Good value with 12 tracks and an additional cd of demo's.

Buy with confidence

On his first album in 13 years, Robbie Robertson resumes his fascination with the great American mythos.
It's fine while he's reminiscing about Sonny Boy Williamson and Pops Staples in "Straight Down the Line", but gets a bit corny when he's on about meeting card-sharps, grifters and tent-show evangelists, and a touch excruciating when he's commemorating fallen guitar heroes in "Axman".
The more personal tracks - leaving The Band in "This Is Where I Get Off", and cleaning up his act in "He Don't Live Here" - are the most moving, but he's always been able to write songs better than he sings them, which didn't matter when he had The Band's three great voices to animate his narratives. Clapton and Winwood are among the guests, but steel guitarist Robert Randolph is the standout turn.

This is the first Robbie Robertson album I've ever heard. I bought it on the strengh that Eric Clapton appears with stevie Winwood and I was'nt disappointed. I thought a lot of the tracks were very reminiscence of an Eric Clapton album and that is not surprising considering Eric appears on seven of the tracks and has written the instumental "Madame X." Eric has also co. written another two tracks, so his influence was going to be considerable. But this is a Robbie Robertson album, I like his voice and he has produced a nice album. There are no tracks that explode in your face with long guitar solo's, so if that is what you're hoping for you may be disappointed. This is a cool, mellow, easy listening style album which I enjoyed and the guitar solo's are soft and gentle and beautifully played. Yes I'm glad I bought it.
