5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB, ROUSING COLLECTION OF BRILLIANT SONGS, 27 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Run Devil Run (Audio CD)
As soon as you place this album in the CD Player and press play, you are aware that you are listening to music of a kind not often seen today. Live, REAL music, recorded by musicians who are doing it because they love playing Rock N' Roll, instead of a bunch of synthesisors and a DJ who is assured of another million pounds from his mono-tone, boring excuse for music.
Paul is in top vocal form here, and proves that, given the right circumstances, he can still belt the old numbers out to perfection, even at the age of 57.
If you have seen Paul's live performances to promote this album, you would have wondered if the album really did capture that same atmosphere. Well, the answer has to be an emphatic yes. This is brilliant music, the recording even sounds like an old fifties record, without sacrificing the superior quality of a nineties compact disc recording. Don't understand? Then listen to the album!
The only low point on the album is "No Other Baby" which is too slow and shows Paul's vocals up a little. This is most apparent where he tries to imitate John Lennon at the end of the track.
The best songs on the album have to be "All Shook Up", "Try Not To Cry", "Run Devil Run" and the closer "Party". But having said that, most of the other songs are equally good, so choosing best songs is difficult. A valid sign of an excellent album.
As for Paul's own compositions, they fit into the mood of the album brilliantly.
The packaging even harks back to the fifties, with the disc itself designed to look like an old LP. Great stuff.
Overall, a superb album and a MUST have. Well done, Paul!
