It's a pretty uneven album. The first song has honky tonk piano and sounds like avant garde Chas & Dave, but it's a definite grower. Babs and Babs is quirky pop with an eerie undertone. NYC is a weird punk stomper. Best of all though are the ballads. Northstar is what Albatross by Fleetwood Mac would sound like with a soul balladeer on vocals, Survive is prototype Jeff Buckley, and 'The Farther away I am' is breathtakingly gorgeous, a fragmental piece which predates Chill-out by a couple of decades.
So, it's well worth taking a punt on this even if you are not a fan of Fripp or Hall. At its best, it's quirky and thought-provoking pop or accessible avant-garde. Imagine Marvin Gaye singing replacing Tom Verlaine in Television or Jeff Buckley recording Brian Eno songs.
Fripps's "Exposure" as well as Hall contains PJAH & Peter Gabriel.
After early Crimson, work with Eno & Bowie, guesting on Blondie's "Parallel Lines", Robert knows his stuff. This is a very american sounding record but is well worth a listen if you have any interest on any of the previous named individuals. A little gem.
This album, therefore has close links to both the other albums mentioed. There are some brilliant songs which are well outside Hall's usual genre. His record label, RCA, thought that this was so uncommercial that it took 3 years before it finally came out (delayed by dinosaurs was Robert Fripp take on that situation) and here it is on remastered CD in all its glory. It is very difficult to pigeonhole but who cares, it's all just music, enjoy!
to the fore with great laidback songs.
With erstwhile old progger Robert Fripp involved, I was expecting 12 versions of 'I Talk to the Wind', but this is a harder music altogether; more edge.
I love being surprised by music, and despite the rampant cynicism and seeming lack of optimism in my reviews - I am quite often. That this is such an unlikely collaboration thrills me; and the fact that it works so well, makes the hours wasted wading through other desperate musics all the more worthwhile.
Mostly it's straightly geetared bluesy rock'n'soul, with a fair amount of honky-tonk piano, but with enough Fripp flourishes and finesse to lift it far above and beyond the mediocre and mundane limits of that rather confining and over-simplistic genre. Hall's a major talent on his own, but add the seriously disturbed Fripp to the proceedings and you're fast-tracking to a classic.
The diversity of 'SS' is micro-cosomed in the last two songs; 'You Burn Me Up Like A Cigarette' which is a racy, almost punk-like thrash-in-the-r-n-r basement, and the seriously beautiful 'North Star', with its iron-cable strong hook and Hall's almost country vocal, making sure the album doesn't fade away at the death. Point of fact - the stronger songs tend to come towards the end. It's as if they're lying in wait: while the McCartney-esque 'Babs and Babs' and the ambient Frippery of 'Urban Landscape' lull us into a false sense of security; songs like 'Why It Was So Easy' and the astonishing 'Survive' (the standout here, against some top opposition) hit like trains. Their immediacy can't be random, no capitulation to fate.
'SS' reminds overwhelmingly of those superb Ian Hunter solo albums.Read more ›
