Time to re-evaluate?,
This review is from: Blind Faith (Audio CD)
This album was hugely criticised when it first came out - it was accused of being rushed and self-indulgent, and it's probably guilty on both counts, but that doesn't mean it hasn't got anything going for it. On the contrary, any album that boasts stone cold classic like Had To Cry Today, Presence of the Lord and Can't Find My Way Home can't be all bad.
All three of these tracks still sound great, but even the less celebrated songs such as Well All Right and Sea Of Joy now have a late 60s, guitar rock charm to them. Only on Ginger Baker's Do What You Like, at the end, does the over indulgence really start to grate, but by then we've already had all the great and the good.
Not the greatest thing any of Clapton, Winwood or Baker ever did by any means, but they should all be proud to have it in the back catalogues.
