Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A classic second-in-command rocker in the tradition of Keith Richards and Johnny Thunders, Little Steven has also made a mark apart from his erstwhile boss, the Boss. The man also known as Miami Steve Van Zandt had a major hand in Southside Johnny's bar-band masterwork Hearts of Stone, was the linchpin in 1985's Artists United Against Apartheid project, and lead his own group, the Disciples of Soul, for a time after his 1984 departure from the E Street Band. Largely out of the picture through the 1990s, Little Steven returns with a solo outing that rocks harder and is more inflamed lyrically than one might have expected from this long-AWOL warrior. Van Zandt's liner notes lay out his mission--to doff his bandana in the direction of the '60s rockers who helped shape his consciousness, from Cream to the Kinks to Jefferson Airplane. At the same time, he maintains the confrontational political stance that's been in evidence since the days of Sun City. Hence there's the title track ("Look around at the volunteered slavery") and "The Camouflage of Righteousness" ("We give you politicians and you call it a choice / We let you do the voting and you think you have a voice"). With this Savage attack, Little Steven fights the good fight and remains standing. --Steven Stolder

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST A GLIMPSE OF THE FACE OF GOD January 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The title of this track says it all! "Face of God" (the fourth song on this CD) has Platinum written all over it. My husband and I cant get the lyrics out of our head. This album has a mix of Petty/Hendrix old rock throughout.Songs like "Salvation" and "Camouflage of Righteousness" are great songs as well. Kind'a bonus tracks considering "Face of God" is worth the purchase itself. Buy this CD before you hear it on the grammys. I'm sure you'll hear tracks on the Sopranos as well. Love this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars POWERED December 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Steven has outdone himself on his first solo album in ten years. His guitar work is hard driving and powered by Jason Bonham's drums. The horns aren't there, but between the rocking music and and wrenching lyrics, they aren't missed. This is a must have for Little Steven and pure rock fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitars, Guitars! December 10, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Whoa! When Steven pays homage he means it! Little Steven has lashed out at his public with some straight ahead "Rock 'n Roll". Remember that stuff? Power trio, great lyrics, ausome riffs, driving beat? In this sample of America's greatest idiom Steven doffs his babushka to everyone from Pink Floyd to the Kinks (there are some american influences as well!) and manages to maintain his high standard for lyrical content. If you like your Rock with lots of guitar, you'll have a blast catching all the subtle, and not so subtle expressions of Stevens gratitude towards some of the greatest guitarists of the 60's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Load Guitars December 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For long time followers of Little Steven you won't be surprised that this album has very load guitars. It is recorded in the power trio format - bass, drums and guitar. The band is a top notch band consisting of Little Steve, Jason Bonham and Adam Clayton of U2 on bass.
What is surprising, if not a bit disappointing, is that in the past, Little Steve, even when rocking hard, always had a soulful bent to the music. He is one of the great contemporary R&B/Soul writers and arrangers we have. This album does not showcase those abilities. The music is hard and jarring at times. With no keyboards or even background vocals to soften the edges, this album forces you to listen to the words and the riffs - of which there are plenty.
Overall, not as musically varied as he is capable of. Compared to his other efforts, this doesn't quite measure up. However, let it be said that if he were a young buck putting this album out early in a career without his past musical reference points, this would find it's way onto hard rock play lists of stations everywhere and we would be excited about this new young talent. The album rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Born Again Savage, Born Again Rock! December 13, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Little Steven's previous solo album was a disappointing affair and marked a change in musical direction, concentrating on synthesizer generated music, perhaps that is why it was only released in Europe. However, Born Again Savage is an entirely different beast. Yes, it is still motivated by strong social and political injustices, but it rocks! A major achievement in the era of sanitised music is to stick to the fundamentals of what rock is all about, it is raw, refreshing, passionate, a great album. Little Steven is ably supported on the album by Adam Clayton on bass and Jason Bonham on drums, you've got to be good to attract that kind of support and the album is quite simply the best Little Steven has done. So buy it..........

4.0 out of 5 stars A totally rocking album! April 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this album at a friend's party, and had to have it, immediately! Bought it the next morning. I've been a fan of his music for ages, and this album doesn't disappoint. I believe "Born Again Savage" - his fifth album - is the most aggressively rocking album Little Steven has made. The sounds of his youth - British rock, with some Dylan and punk mixed in, is obvious. "Born Again Savage" was the last in a series of sociopolitical projects he conceived in the '80's, with the themes being: the individual, the family, government, economics, and religion. It is perfect with Jason Bonham on drums, and with U2's Adam Clayton on bass. Just too bad he has no plans to tour and promote the album!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Rocker - Steven's best January 11, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I think that this is by far Steven's best record - the songs stand out in a stripped down three-piece power trio arragement. In particular, "Salvation" "Face Of God" and "St.Francis" are simply excellent songs, the latter two Dylanesque sound paintings which bear numerous repeated listenings. With this great CD, his touring with the rekindled E Street Band, and his killer support role on "The Sopranos" - Steven is indeed a Renaissance Man.

5.0 out of 5 stars This totally rocks.. December 3, 1999
By Phil
Format:Audio CD
After just seeing Steven with Springsteen and then hearing this incredible album, I cast my vote for the old guys as the best rockers..."Born Again Savage" is solid all the way through, "Face Of God" and "St. Francis" literally gave me chills. The guitar/bass combo on Adam Clayton and Jason Bonham doesnt hurt either. Six stars, five is not enough..
