5.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks, 18 Sept. 2011
This review is from: You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks (Audio CD)
Before I give the verdict of 'Seasick Steve You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks' I must confess I am not in any way a die-hard fan of Seasick Steve and have bought none of his other albums. Having said that, I was instantly blown away by Seasick Steve's voice, rough and yet brilliantly tuneful. The bass and drums really do give Seasick Steve's song a certain rawness and power.
The album kicks off with the soft and wistful song 'Treasures'. Every one of Steve's songs has lyrical depth and this song is no different. Next is, in my opinion, the greatest song of the album, the insanely addictive 'You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks'. I have honestly lost count how many times I have air-guitared to this amazing song. 'Burning Up' begins as a whisper of a song before suddenly exploding into a crescendo of pounding drums and roaring guitars.
The best of the remaining tracks is of course `Back In The Dog House' rocking back and forth, overwhelming you with the strength of Steve's voice and his Three-String-Trance-Wonder.
There are a few hidden gems such as `Whiskey Ballad' and `Underneath a Blue And Cloudless Sky' that both evoke joy and grief at once.
Seasick Steve simply doesn't need dozens of synthesizers and auto-tuning to prove that he's a great musician. I can guarantee that if you buy this album you will not be disappointed.
