Biography

Eric Clapton has often stated that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history, a sentiment echoed by many of his fellow musicians. Cale’s influence on Clapton was profound, and his influence on many more of today’s artists cannot be overstated. To honor JJ’s legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and ... Read more in Amazon's Eric Clapton Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Eric Clapton returns with Pilgrim his first album in three years. A powerfully heartfelt and personal recording that contains some of Clapton's strongest songs and finest guitar work, Pilgrim is a monumental new work from one the most influential and enduring artists of the rock era. Certified platinum by the RIAA (4/98).

Amazon.com

Eric Clapton has metamorphosed from tie-dyed guitar god for a mostly male congregation to Armani-clad crooner and chart-certified ladies' man, yet it misses the point to focus on that transition without considering '90s forays into blues (on From The Cradle, his brilliant 1994 live-in-the-studio homage), techno, and the silky contemporary R&B of "Change The World." Pilgrim, his first studio album of new songs since Journeyman, reflects all these facets in his most ambitious, and certainly darkest solo project. Its title isn't casual: These are elliptical meditations on the ravages of time, as preoccupied with matters of the spirit as affairs of the heart. "My Father's Eyes" opens the song cycle with allusions to the traumatic death of toddler son Conor (the inspiration for '92's poignant "Tears In Heaven"), while the title song adopts the fevered, falsetto vocal style of Curtis Mayfield to riveting effect. Coproducer Simon Climie sculpts electronic orchestrations and favors clipped synth rhythms, while Clapton himself largely eschews his once dominant, climactic electric solos for restrained but potent acoustic filigree, staccato riffs, and fluid rhythm work, letting loose with a rougher, more biting edge on the squalling "She's Gone." --Sam Surtherland

I as a fan who has most of EC CDs in my collection can say this album is one of my favorites between them.
Mahdi Sobhi
No wonder that there are so many used copies of this CD for sale.

When I had to give this album a rating, I almost gave it a subjective four stars. I thought, if every song on the album was perfect, I'd give it five stars ... But then something struck me. This album is so radically different, so truly new, that it deserves a five star rating. How many artists have ever been able to reinvent themselves as successfully as Eric Clapton? Very, very few. And I'm not judging his success by the album's rating on the charts, or how much money he'll make off of it. Eric's career is so well established that it's written in the stars. I'm judging his success by the songs and workmanship on the album itself. His voice has grown to fit him, and his vocal range is astounding, especially after going back and listening to his early vocal work with The Bluesbreakers, Cream, Derek and the Dominoes and Blind Faith. Yes, his guitar work is subtle on this album, but subtle like the brush strokes of Michelangelo on the Sistine Ceiling. Volume ! isn't everything, sometimes softness can be more powerful. "River of Tears" is a song for anyone who has ever suffered a loss. Go someplace quiet and just listen to it. It will wash over you like a gentle hand, wiping your pain away. And that's what this album is really all about. Clapton discusses it in the Pilgrim tour book, how most of the songs were inspired by a recent love he lost. Music, to Mr. Clapton, is a means of healing. "Circus", a song he wrote about his son Conor, proves that Eric is still healing from the loss of his son, and probably always will be. But there are high volume songs on this album, too. "Sick and Tired", a Clapton-penned blues rocker is an electrified tribute to the Texas Blues of Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan.Read more ›

I know a lot of people do not like this disk.I must say though

if you take it for what it is and give it a chance it is a very very good cd. it is not Ocean blvd,or backless not even close if you are lookinng for that this is not it. but it is a very steady and relaxing cd that you must be in the space for.

If you really like Clapton,not just commercial Clapton you should like this disk.I can put it on and let it play from start to finish.you must be open to Where Clapton was at at the time of this disk and take it for what it is and not try to make it be a 1976 E.C. Album.the musician ship is awsome and it is a very deep soulfull disk. a good bottle of wine headphones and candles type of album.give it a chance if you like music not just close minded commercial rock , you will enjoy it..

You either love it or you hate it. I LOVE it! Perhaps it is the fact that this is such a departure in style from anything else Eric Clapton has ever done. He brings his blues guitar background to a melodic electronic mix and in my opinion, created a masterpiece. Forget the fast forward button. It is rare that you have an "non-compliation" album where 13 out of the 14 songs are great. Pilgrim delivers.

I'm amazed at the vitriol of some of these reviews. The album ought to be judged on its own merits. It doesn't make any sense to rate it 1-star because it's a different style of music than you were expecting. If it's not your prefered genre that's your problem, it doesn't automatically make the music "awful." Yeah, it's a departure. And it's also a passionate and lovely album. "My Father's Eyes", "River of Tears", "Pilgrim", and "Broken Hearted" are very good songs. It's not a 5-star effort but it sure ain't "awful."

Sure, we all remember Layla and Cocaine, and this album is definitely not along these lines. And even more surprising is the fact that while Clapton is one of the best blues guitarists ever, he doesn't emphasize his qualities in this regard on this album. The emphasis is clearly on the words of each song which are sensitive and which carry a very deep meaning ... and this makes "Pilgrim" so very special. And of course, the musical quality is there too, but those who remember Clapton from the old day so to speak, may not like this kind of Eric Clapton. The album starts right away with an excellent song titled "My Father's Eyes" and goes on with "River of Tears" and an excellent song called "Pilgrim" (Pilgrim for your love ...) and the "Broken Hearted" and one great song after another. The album leads to "She's Gone" which is a loaded edgy number with great guitar riffs. It took me several dozen times to listen to this CD to hear the excellent depth and thought that went into this production, and I gave it time to grow on me over a couple of years or so and now not a week goes by where I don't listen to it at least once. It's really an excellent album.

I as a fan who has most of EC CDs in my collection can say this album is one of my favorites between them.Maybe its cuz I love these sort of music which you can see clouds of sadness in its sky but I can't understand why people give low rates to this album ??? Ya it is different from his other albums & thats why EC is EC.I've never heard anything from him,makes this feeling to me that I don't like it.I recomend everybody to just give it a chance & just judge about it yourself.
