This review is from: Road Trip (Audio CD)
A long-time fan, I had the pleasure of seeing Duane perform recently for the first time and the man had a quietness about him, a confidence and that ability to make his music speak for itself.

This entirely new album recorded under the auspices of Richard Hawley, whom I was previously not too familiar with, brings a new life to Duane with what I'd describe as an overall mellow album. It's not a re-hash of tunes-familar, but both the influences, the experience have a new dimension added by Duane's younger sidekicks.

The opener is 'The Attack of the Duck Billed Platypus' - an almost James Bond feel about it! 'Twango' gets into the heart of country-meets-Django! A lovely song. 'Curveball' gets back to a great twanging tune, whilst you can feel the nostalgia on the title track 'Road Trip' a gentle and melodic one to play loud in the car!

'Bleaklow Air' too has a wonderful melodic content to it, a sadness, or maybe the wonderment of seeing something beautiful. 'Kindness Aint made of Sand' is a love-song in te style familiar to Eddy fans, whilst 'Mexborough Ferry Boat Halt'another joint composition could have been a 'train song' I guess, but a series of riffs makes for pleasant listening, conjuring up your journey.

Then comes 'Desert Song'. Close your eyes and listen, put yourself in a place you want to be, think of all that is good around you and hear the haunting melody. 'Primeval' returns to a twanging Duane and I'm sure could be become a favourite closer, with its overtones of Some Kinda Earthquake (IMHO). 'Rose of the Valley' is another familiar Duane type of romantic melody. 'Franklin Town' brings the album to a peaceful close with a song played away from all the low notes; folk & country influences.

Magic.
