As a long-standing fan of Grand Drive, I must confess to a certain degree of bias - but if you loved "A Little Like You", "Ladder To The Stars", "Skin You're Living In", "Love And The Truth" or any of the Wilson brothers' other classics, you'll love this album too.
Their second album is strong, but not as good as the debut. It still has the same almost infectious melodies and hooks, but the songwriting isn't as strong. It lacks punch, and in tracks such as Henry the Van, it almost feels like they are running a little short of ideas of things to write about. And musically nothing seems to have moved on. A band needs to try out new things and progress if it is to survive, and there is a feeling of repetition from the first album that sits a little uneasily with me.
That's not to say it's bad - musically it is a delight. But just a little samey and too lightweight to really make an impression. 3 stars.
2008 eponymous debut then there's no reason on earth
why you're not going to love 'Streets Of Our Time'.
This is heart-warming, life-enhancing music.
Danny George Wilson is a prodigiously talented songwriter.
He understands how to conjure magical melodies out of thin air.
Understated, unaffected, memorable and emotionally rewarding.
There is a somewhat stronger country feel on this album than its
predecessor. Banjo, pedal-steel guitar and fiddle are all present and
correct, together with some wonderful hokey vocal arrangements
weaving in and out of the nine compositions in this fine collection.
Things kick of in a mellow mood with 'Henry The Van'.
There is a deeply personal story buried in the lyrics of this
melancholy song. We listen without fully understanding but
cannot but be moved by the sad images unravelling before us.
(Never was a motor vehicle more loved!)
The warm harmonies recall CSN&Y at their very best.
'Lose These Rags' is a more up-tempo number.
A cracking melody and some accomplished ensemble
playing frame Mr Wilson's solidly-centered performance.
Title track 'Streets Of Our Time' is the heart and soul of the project.
That something so simple could be so beautiful is a testimony to
its creator's accomplished musical vision and consummate restraint.
The plaintive harmonica is the icing on the cake.
Final track 'Parakeets' delivers a delightfully whimsical conclusion.
The stomping hoedown chorus surges in from another time entirely.
This is Mr Wilson's greatest gift. To be a able to spin bright new
cloth from the yellowing yarns of the past. Brand new old dreams.

I only have to read the title of this album to have the chorus of the title track come streaming through my conscious. Read morePublished on 21 July 2011 by Mr. Edward James
