Editorial Reviews

Hitting #6, 2005's MIGHTY REARRANGER, drew widespread accolades and showcased Plant fully in command of his venerable powers--the London Observer raved, "Plant's best showing since Physical Graffiti in 1975." Stellar tracks include "Another Tribe," "Shine It All Around" and "The Enchanter." Five bonus rarities include remixes of "Tin Pan Valley" and "Shine It All Around."

This is simply a fine album. Reflects the wisdom of a 56 year old mega rock star who's seen it all, done it all and has been surrounded by the best; coupled with the young raw talent of today. Unlike albums like Page/Plant, "Walking towards Clarksdale", where there is basically guitar/bass & drums, Plant has always, and continues to expand all horizons with jazz, techno, and instruments and beats from around the world. All of the above factors come together on Mighty Rearranger. What's different here, is Plant really speaks his mind about world affairs, as opposed to singing about lemons, shaking down nightgowns, and hearing the back door slam. He started the rant about world issues in the last song in Fate of Nations, but really ran with that baton with Mighty Rearranger. In fact, "Freedom Fries" could have been written by Eddie Vedder or Bob Dylan.

The sound mix is incredible. You are going to get a great soundstage effect on even a modest system. Go to a high-end stereo store, and have them play "Somebody Knocking". You feel like you are sitting across a 40 foot wide stage.

The whole album flows nicely. You can hear from afar as background, as well as enjoy as a listening centerpiece. Play it at a party! Here are the songs, blow-by-blow:

Another Tribe blew me away. I heard the album for the 1st time using headphones and I think I played this song 10 or 12 times before letting it roll to Shine it all around. Opens with them banging on a Bendir(Moroccan drum) to the beat of the opening of Zep's Rock n Roll, and with acoustic guitars, clever techno effects, and a waltz-like orchestra-like effect, I was completely living outside my body. Pure entertainment; mission accomplished!

I have suggested in this very forum that it is mystifying to me that people will fork over huge sums of hard earned money to see a middle aged rock "star" whose last relevant music was decades old (hello Mick Jagger, how ya doin' Rod Stewart?). That sentiment certainly does not apply to Robert Plant. He has never released a truly bad album and this one ranks with his best. There is not a bum track on this disc, and "Tin Pan Valley" alone is worth the price of admission.

While there are other 60's and 70's heroes of mine who have aged gracefully (see e.g. Van Morrison), only Neil Young comes to mind as being able to rock as convincingly thirty plus years into a career. Here's to another decade of great music from arguably the best rock and roll voice of them all.

While his contemporaries are playing the oldies circuit and imitating their 25 year-old selves to sparse audiences that are doing the same, Robert Plant is still looking forward and taking chances. Robert is no longer trying to avoid his Zep past, like he was on his first few solo albums, and instead he is now applying his past accomplishments toward the advancement of his new music. The key point about this album is that Robert has once again allied himself with a talented young band, The Strange Sensation this time around, and the youngsters whip up a fascinating mixture of new age, worldbeat, and mature rock that is the perfect compliment to Robert's sublime voice and mystical lyrics. These guys manage to make a completely run-of-the-mill grunge riff sound exotic in "Shine It All Around," and deliver more surprises like desert-fried delta blues in "Somebody Knocking" and New Orleans R&B in "Mighty Rearranger." Other intriguing tracks like "Tin Pan Valley" and "Dancing in Heaven" really feel like believable modern updates of the folkier passages from the third through fifth Zeppelin records, and even the obligatory techno remix hidden at the end of the album somehow manages to mix Robert's past and future. All guys in their mid-fifties should be this full of wonder and ambition. [~doomsdayer520~]

I never thought I would ever hear a work that melds North African music with the blues quite so well as this album does. It's almost uncanny in its naturalistic approach to the diverse sounds of all the myriad of influences that have made Robert Plant what he is today. Not once does the blending sound forced at all; and that is what amazes me.

Often when musicians try to blend a diversity of sounds it may sound great, but you can still hear the seperation between the different types of music...this is simply not so on Mighty Rearranger. In fact I dare say that it is aptly named; it sounds like a brand new music yet at the same time it sounds like a music that has existed for ages. It's like comparing a patchwork quilt with a solid piece of cloth: the usual patchwork feel of an attempt to combine diverse influences is avoided and instead it just feels like one solid piece of perfect cloth.

It all comes down to three factors for me: Plant chose an amazing outfit to realize his vision. It must be kept in mind, above all things when listening to this disc, is that it is not so much a Plant solo effort as it is a collaberation. In fact, being so deeply familiar with all of Plant's solo material, I can tell you that this has him placed more as a memeber of an outfit than as a featured artist. These men work together in an almost surrealistic way. It's as though they had been playing for years together; each knows exactly what the requirements of the songs are and their musicianship is of the highest order. They really do sound that perfectly locked into place.
