2.0 out of 5 stars Plants 'Kid A'?, 20 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Shaken and Stirred (Audio CD)
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.
