Disappointment=The Great Revival
on July 21, 2009
It really, really hurts me to only be able to give this album a 1 star rating. Unfortunately, I simply had no other choice. I understand musicians changing over time. It's the nature of any artist and especially the industry/business. I really liked what Mojo did with Southern Born Killers, but the Great Revival is in a completely seperate field (in my opinion). Even SBK was probably my least favorite album, but it was still catchy and had a few good tracks that I enjoyed. Being from Atlanta, Stuck Mojo was and always has been a town favorite. Now a days, I don't even know what to say. This album was simply horrific. I cannot and will not recommend it to any Stuck Mojo fan. It may be good for pop radio and/or some country stations, but this simply is the worst Stuck Mojo album ever released and by a very large margin. I love Rich Ward and feel he's one of the most talented, yet underrated musicians in the industry. But Rich, if you wanted to release an album like The Great Revival, why the hell didn't you do it under The Duke name, not Stuck Mojo? The legacy has really been put in jeopardy. Also, Lord Nelson does not and will never compare to Bonz. Just my piece, I wish it was a better review, and hopefully one day down the road they'll put out an album I can rate a 5 star. I long for that day!
