Ignore what the critics are saying; listen for yourself and make your own mind up. This is one of the best new albums I've heard in a while. Bluesy and soulful tracks. Well written and produced songs with talented musicians. "Madame X" is a beautiful instrumental piece.

I've listened to a few of Robbie's albums and I think this could easily be the best of them all.

I'm glad that artists like Robbie are still around to help keep the spirit of real music alive. "Contact from the Underworld of Red-boy" is another great one.
Robbie Robertson is one of those relatively unsung heroes in the music business as far as I'm concerned. Anyone who doesn't like this album has no discernible taste or decided they didn't like it before they heard a note of it - because let's face it, that's how shallow most critics are.

It's a huge pity that nowadays the music industry largely comes down to what's marketable as opposed to quality and originality. A lot of so called 'new' music is just manufactured, generic pop being hyped on TV.

As you would expect, this new Robbie Robertson album does not have a weak track on it. It does, however, contain some real gems, while the tracks with Clapton are truly inspired. Fine musicianship on display with among others Pino Palladino doing what he does best. If you liked Robertson's first solo outing, then just go for it.

Hmm as said a welcome return but the strange thing is this isn't his best work or even his best solo work BUT to me it's one of the most enjoyable albums I've heard in along time. Don't know why that should be but it sounds as if he's enjoying himself and the tracks with Clapton hold up well.......... one to be judged on a very personal level

Was a massive fan of one of the most influential groups of all time - The Band! Have his first solo album - patchy! This is excellent music penned by a superb musician and songwriter; joined by some buddies - E.C. and the talented Robert Randolph.Very listenable rock-music.

Robbie Robertson is a terrific musician and shows off his talents well on this album, where he is accompanied by one or two other great names - and mean guitarists.

Well worth the purchase if you are a fan of the Band - and even if you aren't.

I was skeptical at first that RR still had it but this album was a pleasant surprise.

An excellent package, nice cover, very good pressing, excellent sound quality.

Forget the digital download, it's some MP3 crap that sounds worse than a broken AM radio.

Not up to the standard of previous Robbie Robertson solo offerings. The numbers and playing are all reasonable, but there's not one stand out track.

Had to buy this after hearing it at my brother in laws. Got first two solos years ago. This was brilliant even after just one listen

Very smooth and bluesy, good to put on when you want to just unwind and switch off.
