Some musical artist really do stand the test of time. Rod Stewart is one of those artists. I can honestly remember listening to Rod as a child of the 70's, as a kid in the 80's, and as a teen in the 90's. After 20 years, Rod Stewart is back with a new album 'Time.'
Although I have always enjoyed his music, I thought I would solicit the help of my mother, Regina, to review this album. So I gave her the CD and told her that she needed to listen to it several times before offering an opinion, and she did just that. She said "I listened to it in the car, while I was sewing, and while I laid in bed." Here is what she had to say:
"Overall, I really liked the album. There were several tracks that had a country feel to them, which was different than the old Rockin' Rod, but I liked that."
There were two tracks that she especially liked Pure Love because she could imagine herself slow dancing to that tune and Live the Life because it was upbeat and encouraging (she could also imagine line dancing to this one).
As it turns out Rod wrote 11 of the 12 tracks on the album. He is said to have rediscovered his knack for songwriting while reviewing his memoir. "Suddenly ideas were piling up in my head..." he said.
Rod will be going on tour in Europe on June 1st, with dates in America beginning on October 17th where he will be joined by another one of my favorite artists, Steve Winwood!
Time is in stores now. You can download it on iTunes or Amazon.
