5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the future, 10 Sep 2012
This review is from: The Magic Door (Audio CD)
As a continuation of Big Moon ritual, this fulfils the brief and then some. Harking back to late 60's/early 70's Stones, Love and Creedence, one could argue that this doesn't take music "forward" in any way, but by revisiting a period obviously dear to Robinson's heart and investing it with modern attitudes, the spirit of the age is re-invigorated and brought bang up to date. Sprawling bluesy jams coexist with chuggling boogie and a lengthy proggy "suite" which just shouldn't work nowadays but darn well does, at least to these 50+ year old ears. I suppose this is the album's triumph and downfall at the same time, unlikely to appeal to the young 'uns but for us oldies a reminder of how good things used to be.
