Rob Thomas - Cradle Song - Cd
Top Customer Reviews
of opening track 'Her Diamonds' to the gently lilting
acoustic refrain of final number 'Getting Late'
Mr Thomas's new album 'Cradlesong' is a welcome treat.
He has the eighties in his blood but with the help of just
a little magic dust the music trancends its influences and
delivers 14 fresh and sparkling left-of-centre pop winners.
Mr Thomas has an ear for a good tune (the other serves him well
for equally good choruses !); a smidgen of country here
('Cradlesong'), a spoonful of gospel there ('Someday') but
always with a light touch and a refreshing absence of irony.
If a little old-fashioned in the nicest possible way the
album as a whole is never less than musically satisfying.
The voice is an attractive tenor with just a little warm
vibrato scattered here and there at the ends of phrases.
Mr Serletic's production serves the music well, as do
the massed forces of sympathetic musicians recruited
to the project. Mr Thomas leads from the front thoughout.
There really isn't a bad song on the album.
A special mention, however, belongs to 'Mockingbird',
an uplifting anthem with a great refrain, redolent of
the work of Alan Tarney (a great 80's writer/producer).
It's a big, full-bodied, widescreen epic.
'Fire On The Mountain', too, is a song with a
clear vision and powerful message.
My personal favorite is 'Someday', which will doubtless pin
me down as a big old softie - but I don't care. I love it!
A splendid little album in all sorts of ways.
A big little album in fact.
After first listening I gave "Cradlesong" 4 stars but have now had to change it to 5. Rob Thomas is back - different, possibly more mature(?) sound and oh so good. Wonderful mix of tracks, from the brilliantly suggestive drums on "Real World" to Matchbox sound-alike "Still ain't over you" and singalong-friendly "Snowblind" which sticks to the brain like superglue. And, as the icing on the cake, Robs voice must surely be the sexiest around! :)
There is definitely a more mature, more serious undertone to this album than his first solo offering. There is definitely much more of a Matchbox Twenty feel, but Rob Thomas' vocals are, as always, spot on with feeling and emotion.
'Her Diamonds' feels hauntingly personal, 'Give me the Meltdown' and 'Fire on the Mountain' rocking out, and 'Snowbound' and 'Craddlesong' beautiful ballads.
Highly recommended if you like thoughtful, introspective, personal music.
