Jack Bruce returns to the fray with a challenging and superb album. His early solo work set the bar incredibly high. Harmony Row is one of the finest of all rock albums, with Songs for a Tailor and Out of the Storm not far behind. His more recent work received less aclaim and had fewer listeners, yet More Jack than God and Monkjack, for example, repay multiple listens and contain outstanding songs. Silver Rails comes after a gap of ten years during which Bruce has toured with his Big Blues Band and Spectrum Road, and released music with Robin Trower. Still, since Jack has had his health troubles his followers may have wondered whether more new songs would come.

The new songs are moving, they have something to say, sung from experience, and they make us feel it, there is superb musicianship and great musical variety. There is a progression from early reflective songs that consider love, addiction and mortality, (Candlight, Reach for the Night and Fields of Forever) to later songs showing compassion for victims of corporate political greed, military industrial terror, and deindustrialisation (Rusty Lady, Industrial Child, Drone). Hope seems to lie in the spaces where the human spirit persists away from power (Hidden Cities). The finest moments do not simply recreate familiar idioms but explore and surprise with their invention. The final songs - reworked Keep It Down and No Surrender rock out to speak of unquenched spirit after difficult and unpredicted life journeys.

Jack's voice sounds that of an older man, but remains, although at moments frail, unique and beautiful, an enduring instrument used with great skill to evoke passions. His piano on Industrial Child and Don't Look Now is a delight. His bass remains that of a master.

Well to put it clear, I am one of that hardcore fans who like to like and dislike honestlly - result is I was unabled to make comments on the facebook of JB due to probably persisitent creative comments> Bottomline there are so many things still in the vaults hidden - a real pity. Recently I got sounboard bootleg Live in Hyda Park 1971 with Chris Spedding, Graham Bond, John Marshall and Art Themen. Well you could get better live recordings of the group in 1971 like 3 cd BBC live or Live at Test etc however I was blown away listening hard to the damned soundboard - Third degree (guess not available at that time), One word (Lifetime), Professor Wife Detector (Escalator over the hill) - unbelievable. Ok now we have the silver rails. 2 years ago Jack recorded Spectrum road and it was fantastic however his voice deteriorated by age (still love it). I am particularly pleased with hidden places and other slow pianos plus Drone, 2 last songs are not filler - rerecording them with new musicians is a real treat. Jack well done. Besides 30m DVD making of fantastic and to the point presenting all contributors. God bless.

This in my view is an exceptional album. Obviously this is only my opinion, but there isn't a bad track on the album. It's almost as if it is a continuation of Songs For A Tailor, the album he made back in 1969. It has the same style and feel. The production is superb and quite frankly I can't fault this album in any way.

It isn't like his last jazz album at all, but it does have some of the musicians from that album on this one. This is much more rock than jazz. It's a truley great album.

No doubt Jack Bruce is best known as the vocalist and bassist in Cream. But his strongest time was perhaps in the first half of the 70s. Producing an unsurpassed trilogy of strong solo-albums ("Songs For A Tailor", "Harmony Row", "Out Of The Storm") and playing on groundbreaking albums like Carla Bley's "Escalator Over The Hill" and "Turn It Over" (Tony William's Lifetime).

Since those golden days Jack has certainly continued making music of the highest calliber without quite reaching the same heights. So it's nice to be able to say that here at 70 he has made a strong musical statement, despite some serious health problems due to a near fatal liver transplantant in 2003.

Jack has always been a restless soul and a true multitasking musician. Not only a groundbreaking bass virtuoso but also an excellent keyboardplayer. And having one of the finest voices in contemporary music. A searching musical mind mastering almost all genres from avantgarde to heavy rock. True to form with "Silver Rails" he has made yet another diverse outing, helped by friends like Uli Jon Roth, Robin Trower, Cindy Blackman Santana, John Medeski a.m.o.. Although the backbone of the album is the musicians from his Big Blues Band like Tony Remy on guitar and drummer Frank Tontoh. We also find Jack reunited with long time partner lyricist Pete Brown who has delivered yet another set of poignant words. An album consisting of 8 new tracks of ususal high standard plus two 'oldies': "Keep It Down" ("Out Of The Storm") and "No Surrender" ("A Question Of Time").

Despite being only 30 min.s long the bonus DVD - directed by Jack's daughter Kyla Bruce - gives a rather in-deep portrait of the proceedings.
