I've never really listened to a Robert Plant Album, just listened to some of his more popular hits (read 29 palms etc.). But I decided to check this album out on a whim, and I can tell you that this has been one of the most complete albums I've listened to in a long long while..
1.Another Tribe - Strong opening track with a catchy rhythm and great lyrics..
2.Shine it all around - One of my favourite tracks on the album; intoxicating bass-line, simple effective beats and great vocals.. Reminds me of Lenny Kravitz's "Fly Away" in a few sections..
3.Freedom Fries - One of the more energetic songs on the album; solid track but gets a little boring after a few listens..
Just been checking out the new DT album (a leaked copy as it's not due out until June 7th)..
Track Review post first listen:
1.The Root Of All Evil - Solid track to open with, sounds like they are continuing from where they left off in Train Of Thought.. Borrows from "This Dying Soul" just before the solo, which was pleasant and annoying to hear (if that makes sense :P)
2.The answer lies within - Mellow ballady track that I kept waiting in vain to pick up.. ugh
3.These Walls - Stereotypical DT track, nothing to see here.. move along people..
4.I walk beside you - Catchy track with a rather Eurythmicky riff, and a decent chorus. LaBrie's vocals have begun to get pretty monotonously tiring by this point..
