I’ve not written a review that I remember, that happens and is allowed at my age now, but I have answered questions asked about items I’ve purchased here.
When I am looking at anything on Amazon I always check-out the “reviews” first before buying and I always go first to the lowest first and work my way up the stars. I did that with “Carry Fire” and some DVDs I’ve ordered from Carlos.
I understand when artist retrospectives are rolled out as “greatest hits” by the recording industry and the song you really wanted is not included in this offering, but if you buy their other collection also IT IS included. Imagine That!
What I don’t understand are the rants about an artist being a “has been”, “washed up “or “is just churning out yet another sorry attempt to stay relevant”. Authors writes because they must, artist’s paint because they must, musicians perform because they must, Van Morrison said it best when he titled an offering “Born To Sing, No Plan B”, the need to share your passions drive what you do also.
This is my first solo Robert Plant purchase, I’m going to be buying more soon.
I give this the maximum stars I can plus 2, oh hell, the whole da*n galaxy!
As “The May Queen” began I knew I was going love this “album”. This is not Led Zeppelin, but the beat, the energy, the drive and the passion is there without trying to be what once was and now there is the “whole world” sound throughout that is in “The May Queen”. It is the matured voice of an icon, yes surgically assisted, and of an artist doing something he loves, creating because he’s driven from the inside to do it, and yes the money is nice too. Perhaps I am a romantic, or a village idiot but I’m going wear this CD out if that’s possible.
