2.0 out of 5 stars Plants 'Kid A'?
Well not quite, but this is certainly the furthest he strayed from the music he is known and loved for. Full of staccato rhythms, beeping sythns and sighing female backing vocals this album is a long way from Led Zeppelin.
When he slows thing down and plays it a bit more straight as on 'Little by Little' it works well, but for the most part while interesting it lacks...

Well not quite, but this is certainly the furthest he strayed from the music he is known and loved for. Full of staccato rhythms, beeping sythns and sighing female backing vocals this album is a long way from Led Zeppelin.
When he slows thing down and plays it a bit more straight as on 'Little by Little' it works well, but for the most part while interesting it lacks strong songs and is to self consciously 'different' be really enjoyable.
Apparently this was hisreaction against the 'poodle rock' of Bon Jovi & others so prevalent in 1985 when this was released. Having got it out if his system he them moved on to better things with 'Now and Zen'.
Shaken and Stirred is really for completists only.

3.0 out of 5 stars Transitional Electro-blues/rap, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shaken 'n Stirred -Remast (Audio CD)
The album of an artist in transition. Having established himself outside of Led Zeppelin, Robert continues to expand musical boundaries- with mixed results -on this his third solo outing. From the now trite sounding 'Too Loud' - where he has tried too hard to follow current trends, something LZ never did- to the superb 'Trouble Your Money', Shaken'n'Stirred sounds like an artist trying to move from one place to another.
Despite the superb use of backing vocals, something completely new for Robert Plant, some of the songs here sound like synth riffs linked together in search of a song, and unfortunately in some cases, a soul. At least we can say we now know what happens when you put one of the greatest blues/rock voices with a bunch of unblues/rock instruments. Electro-blues/rap?

Another great album by one of my favourite musicians, Robert Plant. The range of his musical exploration album by album is diverse and vast!

Another cracking solo from a unique vocalist. This album is well worth the listen for any Plant / Zeppelin fan.
