If ever an album was aptly titled.........,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mighty Rearranger (Audio CD).......then this is it! This is my 33rd year of buying music and its a nice feeling to be looking forward to an artist's release like the old days of running to the record shop and coming home clutching 12" of black vinyl (and maybe a record too). I was looking forward to this tremendously and it doesn't disappoint.
Planty is still a forward looking artist after all these years despite the fact he could rest on his laurels and no-one would complain - he's done a few good things in the past!
Like Dreamland, MR has a mix of styles which Robert and his band carry off in fine style - a melting pot of rock,world,trip-hop,rockabilly etc etc.
No doubt some lazy journo somewhere will describe Robert as 'rock royalty' which I personally think is an insult implying that a musician's best years are now behind them and they can assume their place in the pantheon of the greats and trot out nothing but old hits and nostaligia (a subject tackled on the CD).2005 sees Robert still searching and still producing great music with a great band.
If you're reading this - buy it;if you're Robert Plant and you're reading this - please play Glasgow and....great job mate!!!
