Re-release at mid price Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Rusty Anderson is an international solo artist of uncommon creativity, vision and passion as clearly demonstrated in his new recording, 'Until We Meet Again' Rusty Anderson has eccentrically followed his own muse into a future parallel universe, almost as if the last 30 years of music never existed. His blue ribbon resume includes being lead guitarist in the Paul McCartney Band for the past decade as well as a lengthy history of other musical endeavors. The 12 original tracks on' Until We Meet Again' were selected from his previous two albums. Including a special bonus track, they comprise a stunning array of rocking and exultant contemporary music and introspective ballads overflowing with sumptuous, memorable melodies. "Hurt Myself," with Paul McCartney and band in tow, is an exuberant anthem with harmonious guitars and hooks galore as Anderson defiantly states his position with, "Well, I hope you understand that I could never be anyone's victim
I may be shaking outside, but inside I am fine" before delivering the devastating punch line, "I can hurt myself, more than you ever could." "Born on Earth" busts out with an operatic rock epic churning with strings, thunderous power chords, a pile-driving riff and Anderson belting like a blues shouter as he makes an impassioned plea for living responsibly on earth. "Baggage Claim," with Anderson adding hammered dulcimer, enters with an ominous, pulsing guitar line before Anderson cleverly uses an airport baggage claim literally and metaphorically for trying to reconnect with a lost love to give it another chance. His artistry is revealed in the tension between his hopeful vocals and the dark backing underneath with, "So open it up, see what you find, cause I've got yours, and you got mine, let's leave the junk behind."
