Hunters Home and he STILL love's Rock and Roll...,
This review is from: Truth, The, The Whole Truth And Nuttin' But The Truth (Audio CD)
For a man who has been around the block more than a couple of times, Ian Hunter's live preformance is incredibly fresh and exciting, the clarity and sometimes savage delivery of lyrics (that would leave most of today's "pop stars" looking bemused), show both wordly mistrust and a sharp knowing smartness that comes from experience and an integrity that most others of his generation would balk at and envy, this man has been to the mountain, climbed it, had a good look round and laughed it off. Hunter stands unique in British rock history as a singer/songwriter that has retained the ability to just be what he wants to be, a conduit for the world around him and a mirror for the people in it, like most folk who tell the truth he can sometimes make others uncomfortable but his songs speak for themselves and need no "spin" to sell them, each one is carved out of Hunter's skin and delivered to the audience as fresh as when it was first heard; as for the newer material this is no less potent for it's youth just not yet as familier as some of his more widely known hit's. The music industry has not always treated Ian Hunter as well as it should have but this album and both the songs and the performance included show that it still needs him and that his kind of insight is an element that is sadly missing in today's songwriting. I recommend this album to the House...
