5.0 out of 5 stars A rare and beautiful recording, 16 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Irish Tour (Audio CD)
Before any up and coming blues/rock guitarist, gets into the trap of over-hyped and over produced albums, super groups, glitzy websites,
marketing, glamourous lifestyle and (all too frequent) fall from grace - I urge them to simply put on this CD, to take them back
to a place where the Blues is meant to be.
Stripped to the basics - lead, bass, drums, organ. Rory at the top of his powers. The crowd's reaction, stamping on the wooden floor obviously
fuelled by a few Guinness's.
Rory seems extremely shy and unsure, when addressing the crowd. No Rock-God pretensions here - simply a great album.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Love this Album! On first listening too..., 17 Jun. 2011
If you're a wee bit depressed, I'd leave this album until you're happy again. Because this album is dark. Especially if
you read the lyrics online as you go. Unhelpfully (or a god-send if you're depressed), the words are not contained in the CD sleeve.
The musicianship and vocals are up to their usual very high standard and the Hammond Organ/Wurlizer sound on some tracks, is
a perfect match.
One star lost for the cardboard sleeve. When will the marketeers and record companies understand that these sleeves are difficult
to use and damage the CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars oooooh what a voice!, 28 Mar. 2011
This review is from: White Sugar (MP3 Download)
I agree with the other reviewers, that her technical ability with the guitar isn't with the greats (yet), but the
combination of unbelievable vocals, writing talent and the noises she gets from her guitar; makes this an great album
for any blues fan. Yes there are a few stumbles in the fast bits, but this album has a rawness that is often lost
when artists become megastars.

4.0 out of 5 stars My first PT Album - Brilliant, 7 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Stars Die (MP3 Download)
Just received the CD and can't stop playing it - especially the first track Radioactive Toy.
I can't understand why I hadn't heard of PT earlier.
To get the most from the numorous "floydesque" sound effects and rhythms, suggest half decent
gramaphone player, lights off and your stimulant of choice (in my case a cup of tea).

5.0 out of 5 stars the best Robert Plant, 14 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Fate Of Nations (MP3 Download)
One of the best albums I own. You will not be dissapointed in buying this.

I have most of the Robert Plant offerings and I believe that this to be, by a large margin, the best of the lot.
Good mix of heavy riffs and great singing. Be careful if you have this playing in your car,
you'll find yourself going for the volume-up button (especially with 29 Palms).
