4.0 out of 5 stars A solid effort by the finest voice in rock music
A solid effort by the finest voice in rock music, past or present. ELECTRIC encompasses a variety of styles, each of which showcases the depth and power of Rodger's powerful vocal style.

3.0 out of 5 stars A competent outing from the vocal master of his age
Within the Pantheon of great vocalists, there will forever rank a parting void between Paul Rodgers and 'the rest'. Frank Sinatra aside, no other singer has towered so majestically above his contemporaries for the best part of 30 years. And those years have been kind. The Voice has mellowed, the feel has grown.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid effort by the finest voice in rock music, 4 Jan 2000

This review is from: Electric (Audio CD)
A solid effort by the finest voice in rock music, past or present. ELECTRIC encompasses a variety of styles, each of which showcases the depth and power of Rodger's powerful vocal style. The album tends to run a bit mellower than his last effort, NOW, but has a diverse sound that should be palatable to just about anyone who enjoys solid rock, ballads and blues sung by a master singer. WALKING TALL is a strong song that utilizes both blues and rockabilly into one hell of a catchy song. LOVE RAINS, JASMINE FLOWER and LOVE WILL FIND A WAY are stamped with that indelible sound that only Paul Rodgers can deliver. Backed by a stellar band and the very gifted guitar playing of Geoff Whitehorn, it all combines to make a very special mix. Rodgers remains one of the few people from his time period who still sings as well or better than ever, and continues to improve as both a songwriter and performer.

Within the Pantheon of great vocalists, there will forever rank a parting void between Paul Rodgers and 'the rest'. Frank Sinatra aside, no other singer has towered so majestically above his contemporaries for the best part of 30 years. And those years have been kind. The Voice has mellowed, the feel has grown.
'Electric', like its predecessor 'Now', is not a great album - but it does have its moments. Sporting the same mix in track tempo, it delivers a variety of styles ranging from the hard rock opening of 'Deep Blue', through the upbeat blues of 'Walking Tall' to the middle road balladeering of 'Jasmine Flower' and 'Conquistadora'.
Two tracks are stand out. The first,'Love Rains',should rate a 'singles' release and demonstrates the potency of Paul's voice when harnessed to a spirited vocal backing. The second,'Over You',dominates the album both in length (6.5 mins) and emotional pull. Effectively a slower rewrite of 'Seagull' from his Bad Company days (sorry Paul!) this track illustrates the sheer range and subtlety of his vocal style. Comparisons can also be drawn to the more folky outings by Free and this reviewer for one would welcome some output geared more along this route when next he goes into a studio. A mention also for his regular backing group - especially Geoff Whitehorn on lead guitar who once again demonstrates his uncluttered mastery of the art.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad mix, 10 April 2007
This review is from: Electric (Audio CD)
This a great album by Paul, good songs, good voice, as always. The problem with this "electric" album is that the production and mastering is very bad, the sound is poor, without bass and with too much treble.

Really a shame.
