Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

If anything, Robert Plant‘s career as a solo artist appears to be improving with age. With Mighty Rearranger, he builds on the success of his previous album, 2002’s Dreamland, blending electronic experimentation with world music eclecticism. On tracks like "Shine It All Around", "All the King’s Horses", "Tin Pan Alley" and "Freedom Fries" recall his past life as frontman for rock icons Led Zeppelin, taking cues from blues, rock and Eastern music. Of course, he’s continuing to mellow in his later years, and his voice can’t hit the heady heights it once did, but it’s still impressive and distinctive. And his band the Strange Sensation--in particular, bassist Billy Fuller and drummer Clive Deamer--continue to shine, even ! though they’ve been given the unenviable task of trying to fill the shoes once worn by Page, Bonham and Jones. Bits of the album may get a little repetitive towards the end, but Mighty Rearranger is still a fine showing by a living rock legend. --Ted Kord

5.0 out of 5 stars If ever an album was aptly titled......... 4 May 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
.......then this is it! This is my 33rd year of buying music and its a nice feeling to be looking forward to an artist's release like the old days of running to the record shop and coming home clutching 12" of black vinyl (and maybe a record too). I was looking forward to this tremendously and it doesn't disappoint.
Planty is still a forward looking artist after all these years despite the fact he could rest on his laurels and no-one would complain - he's done a few good things in the past!
Like Dreamland, MR has a mix of styles which Robert and his band carry off in fine style - a melting pot of rock,world,trip-hop,rockabilly etc etc.
No doubt some lazy journo somewhere will describe Robert as 'rock royalty' which I personally think is an insult implying that a musician's best years are now behind them and they can assume their place in the pantheon of the greats and trot out nothing but old hits and nostaligia (a subject tackled on the CD).2005 sees Robert still searching and still producing great music with a great band.
If you're reading this - buy it;if you're Robert Plant and you're reading this - please play Glasgow and....great job mate!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Zeppelin . . . but that's the point. 5 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
First a warning. You'll have seen reviews comparing this new Plant album with Physical Graffiti and other "mid period Zeppelin" offerings.
It doesn't stand the comparison . . . in the same way a Porsche Boxter doesn't really compare to a Ferrari F1 car.
There's no "Kashmir" here, no "Custard Pie" or "Trampled Underfoot". The bravado and bawdiness of a mid-70s Plant is superceded by the more mature world view that comes with experience.
And that's a good thing. There's something a little silly about men in their late 50s bawling lyrics about sexual potency which they wrote in their mid-20s.
Plant's words on this album hint that that's the way he feels about things. His cv guarantees a level of interest way beyond the norm, but this music is not the sound of a hairy old rocker trading on past glories.
Listen to "Tin Pan Valley" where Plant rounds on his peers "who flirt with cabaret" or "fake the rebel yell" and you get the feeling he will not be bringing out an album of Cole Porter covers or re-forming Led Zeppelin - two more good things.
Neither will he be sending a Christmas card to George Bush, if you go by the sentiments of "Takamba" of "Another Tribe".
Thought-provoking, musically-challenging and, above all, brave.
Plant doesn't have to take chances or challenge expectations, but he does on this album.
Buy it for those reasons, and not because this guy used to sing for Led Zeppelin, and you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't mention you know who 27 Jun 2005
By David J. Kelly VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Robert Plant has one of the most distinctive voices in rock music with a CV to match. This is not a Plant solo album as here the Strange Sensation step forward to challenge and push Mr Plant. Yes his voice has changed with age, but it is still unmistakeably his voice. This album melds all sorts of world influences with rock and blues,to come out as the best record Plant has made since the mid 70s.
Highlights are the first single Shine It All Around (there is also trance version of it as a hidden track), All The King's Horses, Tin Pan Valley (a great statement of principles from Robert) and Freedom Fries.
I am happy to recommend this album to anyone who likes Robert Plant's music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding and Important Album 20 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I don't usually make the effort to write reviews of anything but this album has made me get up and do just that. I honestly believe that this is the best album I've bought this century! I also believe that it's a very important collection of music, a collection that Plant has been building up to for years. I can hear so much in there with piles of blues and even hints of the most modern fashions! Fabulous and entertaining, you'll play this again and again for years and years.

By Phil
Format:Audio CD
This CD is full of superb original tracks. The "new" band & Plant seem to meld perfectly. The production & mixing give this album a fresh & interesting sound. The unmistakeable Plant voice is really excellent. This guys voice gets better & better the older he gets!!!
Each musician is clearly highly accomplished & polished, there are so many unusual percusion arrangements, and you find that after several listenings up pops another hidden gem of drumming delights.
Guitars & Keyboards are brilliant & the new Bass man is very very cool. Sometimes you think that a particular member of a band stands out from the crowd, in this case EVERY band member fits in & works together to make this a "Strange Sensation" experience.
There is not a bad track on this CD & I guess that a lot of people will draw comparisons with the Led Zeppelin days, well this is to be expected, because lets face it, how many musicians out there today can honestly say that they havent been influenced by Led Zeppelin. Robert Plant, after all was a very, very big influence on Led Zeppelin!
GO OUT AND BUY THIS CD. IT IS, HONESTLY, A QUALITY PRODUCT IN EVERY WAY.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Assault of the Senses - Plant style 14 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
Prepare to have your senses fully assaulted in the most eloquent way that only the likes of Robert Plant is capable of. This album is an intensively colourful masala of sounds, textures and rhythms all blended superbly. Be you metal head or not, this is an album you can't afford to put your nose up at.

With beating drums, `Another Tribe' kicks in, Plants vocals saunter effortlessly over the lilting Asian strings and the voyage has begun in a hot steamy Asian desert. From the first track you know where this album is going, not least of all on a journey into the mystic east and at times of course, the deep south of America, exploring Plants love of the Blues. `Shine It all Around' is a moody swagger of a track that slithers in the back door before trampling all over you for the verse, the controlled vocals lead over heavy riff laden guitars and percussion, moody and emotive you can't help but envision Plant in the wilderness decked out as the lonesome cowboy.

`Freedom Fries' is an a stop starter of a track, its push pull rhythm has no trouble in persuading you to groove along to its earthy beat, which bleats sexiness in its entirety, vocals wailing over the top, with essence of Lemon all over you. This trails away almost too quickly into the mysterious; alluring `Tin Pan Valley' which is one of my favourite tracks on the album and is surely one of the strongest. It's unique in its ambience and oozes uber coolness. The preamble tiptoes towards the explosive mid-section teasing us with just a little passion before dying down again to the pulsing moaning Plant, there is no anti-climax when the chorus finally explodes; this is a sure crowd pleaser and is made for zoning out to.
