Bought in the wake of seeing Ford live at Sheffield's Boardwalk. It's a superb album, showcasing that superb, fluent musicianship. I've listened to it over and over. It's not a problem to me that it's easier on the ear and less edgy than other albums, indeed it means I can put it on in the car when the family is with me. The one factor that really irks me though is this. On the gig, Robben's finishes were sharp, and so imaginative and unexpected as to literally take my breath away. Why then, in the name of Seamus's trousers, does he fade so many of the tracks out in the studio? Pointless, and, for me, cost one star.
