3.0 out of 5 stars Not Ron At His Best, 6 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Long Player Late Bloomer (Audio CD)
I've been a great fan of Ron ever since his 1995 album - the first album in a while that I had to stop what I was doing and just listen to. Since then I have seen him many times and bought all his albums. I would recommend buying them all (including Rarities and Grand Opera Lane)as he is truly a great songwriter and performer. He's also superb at interpreting songs by a surprising range of artists and a covers record would be very welcome.

Watching the recent BBC4 programme,it now seems Ron is set on achieving the mainstream success (and its financial rewards) he feels he has missed out on. This has influenced his choice of producer, with diminishing results. I was disappointed by Exit Strategy and had hoped for more with the latest album. Sadly it too disappoints. I live in hope.

0 positive reviews out of six.Never mind- yours is a fair review. My own review has found this album just too overproduced and sugary. Bob Rock should stick to heavy metal ! It's funny how people take exception to objective reviews like ours and only want to read fawning sycophancy!

I don't like the production either but the songs are so typically strong that the production doesn't matter to me too much. Not TOO much anyway.

I only hope that Ron would consider releasing an album of acoustic or underproduced versions in 6 months time. Perhaps he could call it 'Lone Player, Late Bloomer'.
