5.0 out of 5 stars shockingly good, 3 Sep 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seven Moons (Audio CD)
i really didnt know what to expect from this. ive always loved trower and consider him to be a VERY under-rated songwriter, and he has made some truly fabulous albums. the last few however havent been up to the fine standards of his glory years (Although the playing, as ever, was exemplary) likewise jack bruce looked dis-interested and unmotivated at the sad cream reunion. the 2 previous albums by these two legendary figures were solid peices of work but very patchy in parts (although there were some great tracks on both)- so, with both men in the twilights of their careers i approached this with caution.

well, to say im speechless is an under-statement! this is truly GREAT album. where to start? well, firstly. THE SOUND. this is a beautifully produced album. rich and dark. every instrument is crystal clear and punchy. its a joy to listen to. likewise, jack sounds inspired and his voice, (something else always a joy to listen to), is as great as it ever was. THE MATERIAL - very, very strong. really excellent songs. some great lyrics here and most importantly, there are some very strange, off-kilter melodies going on, unlike anything trower has done before. at times the songs feel very reminiscent of 'disraeli gears' era cream, at others they veer into sometrhing else entirely. there are territories on here that trower has never explored before and it works wonderfully.its blues, its funk, its jazz, its rock. its all things combined and i really cant praise it enough.

this album should be compulsory listening for all young wannabies forming a band. let these two 60+ year old MASTERS show you where its at! hey, trower and bruce, you pair of old rascals! what do you think youre doing coming up with something so effortlessly brilliant as this at your ages?!!

to all of you out there hesitating at pressing the 'buy' button - dont be! - this , my friends, is pure class
