The new Robin Trower release -- "Something's About To Change" -- is SO RIDICULOUSLY GOOD I simply couldn't wait to give TGP members a heads up. I've pretty much been playing this gem the last three days straight, and can't get enough of it. It's on the mid-tempo blues-rock side, with some incredibly tasty work by Robin -- a man with FIFTY years in the business! -- showcasing why he's such a virtuoso. Can you say BIG, BIG TONE? If you loved him before, you'll love him even more. If you've never listened to him before, you're about to start lovin' him big time PLAY LOUD. http://www.amazon.com/Somethings-About-Change-Robin-Trower/dp/B00SXS1LSQ/ EXYSTENCE.NET REVIEW -- When you are approaching your 70th birthday and have been active in music since 1962, when you were the guitarist on one of the most influential songs of all time (Whiter Shade of Pale) and when your collaborators include the likes of Gary Brooker, Jack Bruce, Bryan Ferry and Clive Bunker how do you keep moving forward and, more importantly, how the hell do you stay relevant in the diverse world of 2015? One of the things you do is to keep on doing what has been your trademark since 1966 and play soulful post-war Blues with deep tones and modern themes. You dont try and jazz up your sound by adding material that doesnt fit your skills and you dont try and be modern and hip. In short you make one of the best albums of your career, playing music that is instantly recognisable as Robin Trower and that means something to you. Some of the material on this album is as good as anything he has ever done. His guitar on Dreams That Shone Like Diamonds cuts you to the heart, you cannot fail to be moved by his soul and the slow and heartfelt solo. On a Blues like Good Morning Midnight his voice not normally heard takes you on a journey through the night and into a great sense of loss. Personal favourites abound but Riff No. 7 (Still Alive) is funky and hot while Strange Love has great echoes of New Orleans while never touching on the music of that great city. There is so much about this album that is good or better. His guitar is everything you would expect of Robin Trower but he plays bass on the album as well and shows remarkable skills while Chris Taggart ads some subtle percussion and drums, never taking away from the main man. Luke Smith adds some beautiful Hammond work, underpinning Trowers guitar and subtly adding textures.
