5.0 out of 5 stars Faith restored, 14 May 2013
This review is from: Time (Audio CD)
I gave up on Rod Stewart on the release of Atlantic Crossing. Up until then I had everything he had ever produced both solo and with the Faces; Maggie May was and to be honest probably still is my favourite track of all time and the odd cracking track (eg. Downtown Train, Killing of Georgie) and album (Unplugged and seated) aside, I'd consigned the old fellow to the dustbin of history. NO LONGER! The lavish praise this album has already garnered is absolutely justified and in "Brighton Beach" we have a song that we can all identify with and is surely destined to be seen as a classic. The only track I don't get on with is "It's over" but that aside this is blinkin' brilliant. One other slight caveat is that the silky smooth production loses some of the raw energy of his early albums but this is only to be expected. Perhaps the highest praise I can give that if we were back in the days of "proper" singles, every track on this superb album could be released as such. This album is destined to be the soundtrack to my summer (if we get one!)

Big Jim,
I survived at bit longer than you - but gave up after Do You Think I'm Sexy (although he remained superb live despite the over-tight trousers). I'll give it a punt on the back of your review and the positive words in this month's Mojo.

It's got 4 extra tracks and they're not bad at all so I'd recommend the longer version
