This CD is a mind blower. I actually did not know what to expect when I bought it (this is Mic Fleetwood, you know! Mr. Eccentric himself). However, I was wonderfully surprised.

The CD opens with a monster of a song, "Bitter End." This is a very bluesy, slide guitar song with a huge sound and a wonderful tune/hook. I'll be surprised if this song is not a hit. After this song, the CD moves into great song after great song. Todd Smallwood's vocals are wonderful, they blend well with every song, and he sounds like several great singers from Jackson Browne (who appears on the CD helping on certain songs as performer/songwriter) to Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen all mixed up together.

One of the better songs on the CD is 'Where the Wind Blows' which has a bluesy Bob Dylan/Jackson Brown type sound to it. It is a heavy slow waltz that has a lot of body, a big sound, great drum work and great vocal blending by Smallwood and Lauren Evans. This is one of my favorite songs on the CD (you have to sample it).

Following this tune is a funk rock type song titled "Its Only Money." The Hammond organ in the background really makes this song have some great texture. Every song on this CD is good and has a life of its own. The whole CD is good, so there is not a bad apple in the bunch (this is rare, most CD's have at least one mediocre song - but not this one!)

From blues, to rock, to ballads (like 'Making Other Plans, which has a twist on John Lennon's lyric "Life is what happens when your busy making other plans), this is becoming one of my all time favorite albums. If you like Mic Fleetwood or Fleetwood Mac, then you will most certainly enjoy this album (even though it really does not sound like a Fleetwood Mac album). I highly recommend this CD! Sample it and see for yourself.

As I write this review of the CD I just received, I noticed Amazon doesn't have song samples yet. A shame becuase if you hear this music, you fall in love with the singers, Todd Smallwood, and Lauren Evans - the killer drumming of Mick Fleetwood and the depth o the songs. Please jump over to AOL or iTunes to sample the tracks until they're up at Amazon and come back here to get a copy! The best CD for this REAL ROCK sound in years. Feels like I've known every song on this album forever. Hats off to a perfectly crafted, totally Rock CD!

This is that very rare sort of disk on which every song is better that the last one - the sort of disk that I feel like listening to over and over again without ever hitting the SKIP button! Todd Smallwood's songwriting, vocals and instrumental work is nothing short of outstanding, and a perfect compliment to Mick Fleetwood's thundering, innovative, straight-ahead drumcraft! Hope we hear a lot more from this collaberation of extraordinarily talented folks!

ROCK ON!

I do not remember how this CD ended up in the last stack of music I purchased from Amazon...but I am sure glad that it did. This is an exceptional effort. It holds your interest from start to finish. The song writing is strong and the compositions varied. It incorporates several musical styles so the songs do not blend into an amorphous collection. There is great diversity in the musical elements employed as well as a wonderful use of accompanying and background vocals. This clearly has a cooperative group feel, where the priority was to get the songs and music to sound as strong as possible. I only hope this is not the beginning and end of a special collaborative effort!!

I found this cd to be a disapointment. Mick Fleetwood's other 2 releases of "THE VISITOR" and "I'M NOT ME" in my mind are superior efforts to this one. The songs just didn't grab me and the vocals were very ordinary, delivered without much conviction. Try either "THE VISITOR or I'M NOT ME " instead of this for a better product.

Sceptics among us might question the legitamacy of referring to SOMETHING BIG as a Mick Fleetwood albim, and they might be partially right...in many ways, the disc could be considered the debut release from Todd Smallwood, the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who wrote or co-wrote eleven of the CD's twelve tracks. However, such an assumption would greatly short change Fleetwood's contributions to the album: his signature drumming anchors SOMETHING BIG throughout, and he certainly has a knack for discovering new talent (can anyone say Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and, to a lesser degree, Bob Welch?). So if tacking his name on to this project helps propel Smallwood and vocalist Lauren Evans towards superstardom, more power to them! All it really boils down to is that SOMETHING BIG is the kind of solid rock record Fleetwood loves to make and the kind you just don't (sadly) see much of any more. Changing from vibe to vibe and flavor to flavor with each song, this chameleon-like disc opens with the slinky "Bitter End." All sultry vocals and stinging guitars, the song is melodic and heavy all at the same time. Next up is the rollicking title track, a call-to-arms to try and attempt "something big", even if it's living your life to it's fullest. With it's Mellencampesque groove, there's a sweetness to the song that's tempered by a healthy dose of wisdom. The instrumentation is sharp, yet uncluttered, Evans provides sterling backing vocals and Smallwood's lead vocal, which comes across as equal parts Dylan and a male Kim Carnes (particularly in his phrasing) is heartfelt and powerful. "Where The Wind Blows" opens with an airy spoken prologue from Fleetwood that perfectly sets the stage for the wistful pub ballad.Read more ›
