Larry's finest hour!,
This review is from: Only Visiting This Planet (Audio CD)
Ok, if you don't own this album already...stop reading this review & buy it immediatly!
Those Larry Norman fans out there already know how awesome this album is. 'Outlaw' & 'I wish we'd all been ready' are just beautiful, clever and well written, 'Six O Clock news' is a barn storming rock track about a journalist covering the Vietnam war and 'Readers Digest' is a diatribe about the state of the music scene which is unvbelievably relevant today, 40 years later! The crowning moment on almost flawless album is, by far 'The Great American Novel' which again feels so relevant today. The lyrics to this tune nearly always bring a tear to my eye.
The only duffer on the album is 'Why Should the Devil have all the good music'. Lyrics are ok but the generic rock and roll music is nowhere near the standard you'd expect from Larry Norman.
Buy it, download it, steal it, do whattever you can to get your hands on this amazing piece of work from a legend!
