Ian Hunter is amazing 73 years old and still making great music. This album is a bit of a throwback in that it rocks like Hunter hasn't rocked in years.The opening track Comfortable (flyin' scotsman) set the pace,a mix of Chuck Berry and Little Richard, Hunter is clearly enjoying himself on this track whilst The Rant Band give him superb backing on this rousing opener. The title track is fantastic a tune that will stay in your head for days after hearing it and it boasts a great lyric "I'm gonna lean on the 1% when i'm president" he sings in the chorus. There are some other tough rockers (What For) and the wonderfully playful Wild Bunch which is a hoot. Bittersweet ballads Black Tears and Fatally Flawed are both superb and middle of the road rockers Saint and Just the Way You Look Tonight are both very good. As usual with Hunter you have razor sharp lyrics "Still whining 'bout your bonus-man up your ridiculous, Give a little extra-you can't take it with yer!" he tells the greedy bankers. The closing track Life is a quiet end to the album and is a tribute to his fans that have stayed loyal to him "Can't believe that I'm still here and your'e still here" he sings - moving and poignant a lovely song. The Rant band are top drawer musicians and Hunter's voice has never sounded better (he can't be 73 can he ?) and most importantly he still clearly means it - astonishing ! Buy with confidence this is another must have Ian Hunter disc.

At age of 73,Mr Hunter Defies his Age.Like most of his Fans he is old. Fortunately,like a good wine he get's better with age.Having followed the career of this gentleman from the outset i am pleasantly surprised that in later the years the material get's better and better.
For me personally the stand out track is Ta Shunka Witco,Ian's voice is soft and the music takes hold.The first two tracks hark back to younger days with Ian belting out some seriously heavy sounds."when I'm President"takes a swipe at the fickleness of the politicians in general.Overall this album for me represents the varied styles from rock to almost country that Ian is so good at.long Live Rock n Roll and Long Live Ian Hunter....Not many people narrate a song as well as he does.

This is a must for all Ian Hunter fans and just grows and grows on you. However, if you are a lot younger than most of us that follow his music, then grab a download to hear one of our most underated song writers in action, with a really tight band behind him. Personally, I think he just gets better and better and this album pays credit to that.

Format: Audio CD
How old is Ian Hunter? Well I've never heard him in better voice, and all the old energy is still present and correct. Lyrically he is as sharp and wicked as ever, ensuring that the slower tracks are not just mawkish, throwaway love songs but thoughtful meditations on life that tell genuine stories. On the rockier tracks, and some of them are pretty heavy, Hunter bellows like in the old days and puts "singers" fifty years younger than him into the shade. Add to all this a superbly tight Rant Band, and perfect backing vocals, this is a decidedly old fashioned record;- old fashioned in the sense that it has been made with care, attention and love and not just churned out to fulfil a contract or a passing fad. My 14 year old son saw me listening to this and actually sat down and listened with me through to the end before going off to put the album on his Spotify Playlist. If HE can be convinced that this album provides potentially the best amalgam of beauty and hard rock he will hear this year then there is hope for the youth of today.

Like a good wine, Ian Hunter just seems to improve with age. He is able to work at his own pace in his own way and that is why his music is always so refreshing. His last album 'Man Overboard' was excellent and this new album is a great follow on. Starting off with a fast rocking number, 'Comfortable' to get the listener into the mood for the rest of the album. Some really great songs on this album and a continuation of IH's ability to bring out brilliant albums.

73-year old Ian Hunter, former frontman of Mott The Hoople has no right sounding this good at his age. While his contemporaries croon their way through standards album, Hunter has turned his nose up at that kind of nonsense and released a powerful, swaggering, energetic album a man half his age would be proud of. Indeed, if The Rolling Stones had released this very album, the press would be falling over themselves to lavish it with praise, but - seeing as it's Ian - it seems to have passed all but fans and people who go out of their way to seek out the best music by. This truly is rock 'n' roll at its very best, the kind of album that, when it has finished, you feel as if you've been picked up and shaken. With grooves to make your body involuntarily move along and guitar lines that make you grin appreciatively, When I'm President is a sheer pleasure to listen to, from start to finish. There is such a rich mix of harder and softer edged songs, but they all share sharp lyrics and great melody, making it such a winning album. I'm not going to pick out favourite tracks, they're all superb, from ballsy opening statement "Comfortable" to the gently philosophical epilogue, "Life". There haven't been many better than this one this year, that's for sure.
