Editorial Reviews

With Soul Mover, as the title hints, Hughes takes his personal interest in funk and R&B related material to the next level, bringing along guitarist JJ Marsh, drummer Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Pepper fame, as well as guest guitarist Jane's Addiction/former Chili Pepper axeman Dave Navarro for his latest effort. Sanctuary. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glenn has completely blown me away March 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Good

Everything about the opening track "Soul Mover" emits soul. Right down to the smooth vocals, twangy guitar riffs, and driving bass lines. Tribal drum beats dominate "She Moves Ghostly". The song is sure to get your foot tapping and body moving. Glenn's vocals are quite empowering during that catchy chorus section. The guitars are quite subtle during most of the track, but then guest guitarist Dave Navarro cuts loose during the solo. Fuzzy, electronica style rhythms can be heard on "High Road".

Glenn is both seductive and funky with his delivery. Dual guitar licks and cosmic keyboard effects command the bluesy track "Orion". "Let It Go" is serine and passionate during the verse sections and intense and supercharged during the choruses. The fiery solo takes the track to a whole new level. "Dark Star" displays pure seventies wakka-wakka funk guitar. "Isolation" is full of so much emotion and feeling that it could bring a tear to your eye. This serenade builds to an eighties-style power ballad conclusion.

The Bad

Nothing

The Verdict

I heard so much about Glenn Hughes making a comeback in the last few years, so I decided to check out Songs in the Key of Rock. I was quite disappointed. To me he was still stuck in the 60s-70s rock time warp. On Soul Mover, Glenn has completely blown me away. He manages to draw from his admiration of 60s-70s blues rock, but gives it a modern rock touch, making it appealing to wider range of music fans. Glenn also seems to have put more time into his songwriting.

5.0 out of 5 stars just gets better with age September 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
if you like rock played with soul and feeling the way it's supposed to be played then don't miss out on this awesome cd.

glenn just keeps on getting better with age. his voice is in

top form and the songs are very good. some of the arrangments

and vocals remind me of deep purple during the burn era.

i still don't understand why the u.s. hasn't caught onto this

awesome talent. glenn is regarded as the voice of rock and may i say rightfully so yet he still doesn't get the recognition he deserves by the public. do yourself a favor and buy this cd, but only if you like real music played by real musicians!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a Leap of faith on Soul Mover by Glenn Hughes. November 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Often heralded as the " Voice Of Rock" because of his incredibly strong yet soulful vocals, Glenn Hughes offers his 11th solo album entitled "Soul Mover". Glenn Hughes has been an artistically contributing member or linked with Trapeze, Deep Purple, Tommy Bolin, Hughes Thrall, Phenomena, Gary Moore, Tony Iommi, George Lynch, Hughes-Turner, and his own very prolific solo band. "Soul Mover" showcases Glenn on vocals and bass, long time guitarist and writing partner J J Marsh, keyboardist Ed Roth and former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. Dave Navarro ex-Jane's Addiction, & ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist also makes a guest appearance on two songs.

"Soul Mover" is a progressive combination of high energy funk fused Rock and Roll, thoughtful song compositions and vocal virtuosity only deliverable by Glenn Hughes himself. Although all the songs are delightful, stand out tracks are " Soul Mover", "Let it Go", " Dark Star" and "Don't let me Bleed".

As an added bonus the Cd is enhanced with the video for the song "Soul Mover".

4.0 out of 5 stars Soul Mover (2005) April 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you go back over the past 10 years of Glenn Hughes's solo recordings, you're going to be pretty impressed, no matter what you think his leanings should be. Whether he should be all Funk, or a mixture of Soul 'n' Roll, or completely Hard Rock,Hughes at least puts 100% of his creativity and talents into what you'll wind up hearing. And that's really all one can ask for from anything anyone is selling you. That they put as much effort in as possible, and that you're at least pleased somewhat, if not wholesale, by what you now own.

Going back to 1995, and the part reunion of Hughes / Thrall on Glenn Hughes's FEEL album, which was a mixture of AOR / Rhythm & Blues / Soul / Funk (plus some Hard Rock thrown in), to the aggressive ADDICTION from 1996, full of heavy guitars and growled vocals, or jump forward to 2001's Building The Machine, with its mixture of Hard Rock and Funk, Glenn Hughes puts a lot of effort into his albums. And throughout all of them is ''The So-Called Voice''. And it becomes maybe a cliche to the point that you're making people expect something they just may not hear when they buy a Hughes album. But the man can sing. He's a better vocalist now than he was in the 1970's. And seems to have lost none of the power that 30 years of singing suggests he should have lost by now. Kudos to Mr.Hughes.

Soul Mover seems to be an album that makes a few sacrifices here and there. This is only (I think), to welcome the Red Hot Chilli Peppers fans that may buy this album for Chad Smith's work on it. It may not be. It's not a 'full-on Hughes album', but it does serve as a great introduction to the non-initiated. And it possesses one of the catchiest tracks Hughes has ever written.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice Of Rock Keeps On Moving!!!! January 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Glenn Hughes has returned once again for a stunning album in Soul Mover. I must give a lot of credit to Glenn for turning his life around back in 1992 from battling recent drug and alcohol addictions he endured during the late 70's and throughout the 80's. I must also give credit to the KLF for recruiting Glenn who sang on their hit song "America: What Time Is Love?" It was that song that firmly cemented his comeback throughout the 90's not to mention them labelling Glenn as "The Voice Of Rock." A title he still cherishes to this day.

So after countless albums, all of which have been superb, Soul Mover soulfully moves into 2005 in a big way. Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith features on this album as they've formed quite a friendship as of late. Dave Navarro also guests on a couple tracks. Rejoining Glenn is longtime guitarist JJ Marsh. His contribution to Glenn's albums has been rather impressive to say the least. An underrated musician Marsh really is. So glad that the guy has been working with Glenn for a long time not to mention the Hughes Turner Project albums also.

Well there isn't a weak moment on this album. There are some amazingly composed tracks including the title track, She Moves Ghostly, Orion, Let It Go, Dark Star, Land Of The Living (Wonderland) which is a favourite for me. High Road and Change Yourself are also fantastic tracks as is the closing track Don't Let Me Bleed. Glenn along with Chad and his fellow Chili's guitarist John Frusciante recently covered the Moody Blues classic Nights In White Satin for the Stealth movie soundtrack. This stunning cover is now included with a special Australian edition of Soul Mover. And there are hopes that Glenn will be in Australia next month.
