there. Superb songs and production, make this stand out, with each track revealing hidden depth, with
repeated plays. No point naming standout tracks,as the whole album is incredibly strong, with sublime
melodies, and Jim's distinctive vocal's. The lyric's are back to his best, with cryptic, hidden meanings
similar to early Minds.
I would never have thought he would do a solo album as good as this, and he seems to be flowing with ideas
at the moment. Sadly apart from Simple Minds fans, the album will probably be ignored, but he should take pride
in the fact, that the people who do buy it, will be musically educated, and in years to come, will be
looked upon as being a minor classic. Thanks Jim for one of the year's best suprises.
On some of the tracks the sound is reminiscient of early Simple Minds (Think, Sister Feelings Call).
Overrall, the album is full of energy: Mel Gaynor beating out the drum sounds, atmospheric guitars with a nostalgic 80s sound and soaring synths.
The most accessible tracks are the single: "Shadowland" and the free download on the Lostboy website: "Refugee" but with repeated listening you can start to appreciate the other tracks.
Definitely something for Simple Minds fans and anyone who enjoys a blend of classic 80s with the contemporary.
Every track is very good, and many are possible hits, like "Remember Asia", "The Wait", etc...
This album is excellent, brilliant, and it confirms that Jim Kerr is in a very good mood for the moment, following the excellent SM album "Graffiti Soul".
Great job, Jim!
However, what is disappointing on the first 2, 3 listens maybe, is how little jumps out and immediately embeds itself in your head, every SM album has done this for me, even the 'perceived' weaker efforts. "Shadowland" is the only one.
Opener "Refugee" revisits some of the melody and driving vibe of 2005's "Stay Visible", while the single "Shadowland" is a very good song, if a tad familiar, it would not be out of place on "Graffiti Soul" should you so wish to 'playlist' it there. Other songs seem to revisit ideas and riffs from the recent Minds catalogue; "Black & White 050505" and "Graffiti Soul", there's no real solo imprint on the music [yet], perhaps that is to be expected as it takes time for a singer to tear himself free of his band and it's 'signatures', although having said that I don't hear much, sans voices, of Genesis in "Peter Gabriel I or II" or the Velvets in Lou Reed's "Transformer" & "Berlin", maybe it's a sign of whom you coose to work with and JK has chosen Coad, who did the last 2 SM records.. however..
There's a naughty steal from Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" on "She Fell In Love With Silence" and on "The Wait Pt II" JK borrows wholesale the outro melody from his own "Alive & Kicking" towards the end. "Nail Through My Heart" is basically a contemporary and rather excellent rewrite of a 1980 B-side entitled "New Warm Skin", a practice Le Minds have done before with "Theme For Great Cities'91" & "Ghost Dancing" [I Travel] It so happens this track is also my particular favourite along with the oddbod "Soloman Solohead" because they veer so far from recent Minds music. A sign of things to come? Hope so.Read more ›

Really good album to listen to. Enjoyed Remember Asia most. Like most of his or Simple Minds albums, this one is another impressive progression from the last album.Published on 9 Dec. 2011 by irvlim007
His album is a perfect way to underlign his vocal talents. The songs do remind you of his "Simple Minds" history which cannot be any surprise at all.Published on 4 Oct. 2011 by GlobeTrotter
