3.0 out of 5 stars Lacks The Creativity Of Songs For A Tailor, February 20, 2010
By 
This review is from: Harmony Row (Audio CD)
Overall I do like Harmony Row. I really can't help but like anything by the great Jack Bruce. In my opinion he really was the heart and soul of Cream. His debut album, Songs For A Tailor was one of the true unsung masterpieces of the so-called golden age of rock music. However, Harmony Row falls short by comparison. There are several stand-outs. "Folk Song" packs the same driving punch as "Tickets To Waterfalls" and "Smiles & Grins" sounds reminiscent of "Boston Ball Game 1967". "You Burned All My Tables" recalls "Never Tell Your Mother She's Out Of Time", (a dig at former bandmate Eric" Is God" Clapton). In short, almost every track of Harmony Row seems to be a sort of take-off on one of the cuts from Songs For A Tailor.

Again it's hard not to like anything Jack Bruce puts out. He's simply so unique and inventive. Maybe if I didn't have Songs For A Tailor as a basis for comparison I might feel differently. But I can't help but consider this to be a lesser album. As a big Jack Bruce fan, I look to him to reinvent himself and come up with a more challenging effort on his next record.
