Biography

On his Nonesuch debut, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, singer/songwriter Robert Plant bookends an album of brilliantly realized original material with two versions of the haunting bluegrass tune “Little Maggie,” popularized in the mid-’40s by the Stanley Brothers. In the Stanley Brothers’ hands, the song is mournful yet stoic as the narrator vows to leave for ... Read more in Amazon's Robert Plant Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Love It Or Hate It October 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Shaken 'N' Stirred is one of those albums you'll either love or hate ... there's no in between. I personally loved it. Cuts like
Too Loud and Sixes and Sevens truly rock out. Robert plant showed his experimental side on this release. You may have to listen to it a couple of times to truly appreciate it. I love all of Plants stuff, but this is one of my favorites. Good music from a great artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fearless... May 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
You know, most people seem to malign this album, the last with his best band (echoing a previous sentiment). This album was both a direct response to the music Plant was hearing at the time and a direct break from the Zeppelin albatross. People who don't like this disc might have a problem with its synth sound or the fact that it doesn't sound anything like the previous two albums or anything past it, but allowing it to stand on its own merit, free from the "but it doesn't sound like Zeppelin" whine that prevails against so much of his solo work, shines a light of clarity on an album of considerable thought and mastery of the moment. Plant and company accomplished more on this disc than he would until Dreamland. It would have been interesting to see where else he would've gone with this band, but he switched gears for the next album, and Blunt, Woodruffe, Martinez, and Hayward (and Halliday) were gone. More's the pity that 66 to Timbuktu all but ignored this disc, showcasing only Little by Little... give this disc a try, remembering that it is a fearless statement by a legend who had covered the musical gamut in his previous band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shaken, not Stairwayed March 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
When your resume is "Stairway to Heaven" and "Kashmir", what do you do?

And when your legacy is that of having been the front man to perhaps the greatest rock and roll/hard blues band in history, what's next? For Robert Plant coming off of the Zeppelin era, it began with "Pictures at Eleven", a nice radio-friendly transition with Zeppelinesque tracks fused with Robbie Blunt's roadhouse blues-based driving guitar work. It moved onto the peculiar Principle of Moments which swayed back and forth between AOR rock and atmospheric textures and ballads. Having played it safe for two records (along with the able assistance of Phil Collins on percussion), Plant broke loose with Shaken 'N Stirred.

At first listen, I was devastated by how radically he had departed from normalcy and everyone's expectations. But as is always my rule, every record I purchase gets three listens in three different settings at three different times of day. After that, I love it or hate it. And for Shaken 'N Stirred, it must've been that third listen where things fell into place. (OK... maybe the fourth.)

Yes, Little by Little is the commercial favorite with stunning guitar work by Blunt. The recording is largely stimulated by master keysmith Jezz Woodroofe and the delightfully surprising counter-voice of Toni Halliday on a number of tracks. Little Feet's Ritchie Hayward is shockingly out of his element and even more shockingly delivering some of the finest percussion ever heard on any rock record from the 80s (Peart would likely agree). Paul Martinez even involves himself more in the writing process, and his bass work is solid, not stale.

"Hip to Hoo" playfully nods to brassy bands of the day like Asia and twists our ankles as we try to tap to its clever 6/4 rhythm.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and diverse February 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Shaken 'n' Stirred (Robert Plant's third solo release) is an entertaining and somewhat unconventional piece of music. There's a total of nine songs. I find every one of them to be worthy and pleasing. Some of the material is in a straightforward pop rock musical direction, while other tracks are in an experimental pop rock vein. Six of them also contain female backing vocals. The songwriting is good and creative, the musicianship is proficient, and the production is tight. The keyboards (played by Jezz Woodroffe) are a prominent facet throughout the album. Robbie Blunt's guitar work mostly takes more of a secondary role--except for "Kallalou Kallalou" and "Pink and Black." When it comes to the vocals, Plant does a nice job. Ritchie Hayward's drumming is skillful and taut, too. The tune that I enjoy the most is the straight-ahead, atmospheric "Little by Little." The smooth "Sixes and Sevens" is also a gratifying ballad that's just over six minutes in duration. The song from Shaken 'n' Stirred that I find to be the most offbeat and adventurous is the quirky "Too Loud." The aspects of this sprightly tune that attract me especially are the weird-sounding keyboard work, the lighthearted, interesting vocals from Plant, and the female background vocals. Another one that's progressive in style that I like is "Trouble Your Money"--it resembles something that the Police would write. I enjoy how this ambient track rises and falls in intensity. "Doo Doo a Do Do" is also a song that's different and pleasing; it features cool keyboard playing and energetic female backing vocals. The CD insert doesn't include the song lyrics. The disc is just over 42 minutes long. Shaken 'n' Stirred is an album that's eclectic and worthwhile.
