A Good Idea, Just Not Everybody's Cup Of Tea
on 10 September 2018
It's ironic that this album has a more contemporary sound than most of their last albums of original material. The performances sound heartfelt and genuine, with little of the mannered vocals Jagger allowed onto performances of their own songs. It also has great harp playing from Mick. This is, I imagine, a result of having set the template for this music over 50 years ago and in the interim becoming old and experienced enough to play it with real meaning. There are elements of the sound that are reminiscent of Dylan's Time Out Of Mind (particularly All Of Your Love and Everybody Knows About My Good Thing) as well as Two Petty's later, bluesy albums. The only problem is the potential for boredom when you get a bit tired of the blues, but that shouldn't diminish the fact that the album lacks pretension and the performances are excellent.
