5.0 out of 5 stars Mojo still rising!, 22 Jun 2010
This review is from: Mojo (Audio CD)
I remember reading an article many years ago in a musicians magazine about how there were only a finite number of notes and chords in Western music and how soon until we run out of ideas. Well, seems like no-one has run out of ideas yet. This is a fantastic album even by Heartbreakers standards which are very high. Tom and the guys seem to have forsaken 'The Big Jangle' for a more driving hard blues sound. How do they manage to make the familiar sound so fresh and new? Quite a long album but doesn't sag for a second. There are so many highlights on this album. Possibly the most underrated band in the world.

Genius.

Spot on. It's interesting how this album has divided people, and I wonder if that is a sign of why it's so good: it actually makes a mark. The real difference seems to be between people who have spent some concentrated time on it and those -Uncut and BBC reviewers I suspect - who gave it a cursory one-time listen. About the tenth time I had it on the penny dropped - this is a concept album and the concept is the USA - starting with Jefferson, ranging over the mid-west, the coast, the sea the blues the swamps - it's all in there. I've always liked this band but this reaches a new level - and to think they did half-time at the Super Bowl a couple of years ago! Amazing.
