5.0 out of 5 stars No wasted notes here, 28 May 2003
This review is from: Lifemask (Audio CD)
This collection follows on from the classic 1971 set 'Stormcock'. In my view, the songs on this album are just as successful. I reckon Roy's secret is that these songs, although acoustically driven, are actually rooted in rock music. This accounts for the depth, swagger and emotional power of the songs - arguably rare qualities in a singer-songwriter. 'South Africa' and 'Highway Blues' are stand out tracks, although some listeners may prefer the live 'Highway Blues' on 'Flashes From The Archives of Oblivion' released a year later. 'The Lord's Prayer' originally took up one full side of the record and lasts over twenty minutes. Roy is often criticised for a tendency towards self-absorbtion but I can't hear a wasted note here.
