Product Description

PLANT ROBERT DREAMLAND

Amazon.com

While it kicked considerable butt to see Robert Plant reunite with his old Led Zeppelin sidekick Jimmy Page, we all knew he would rather put on his skintight "Nurses Do It Better" T-shirt than have to sing "Kashmir" one more time. Over the last few years, the man perplexingly called Percy by his close friends immersed himself in his massive collection of '60s psych-folk records, put together a new band, and made a gorgeous solo album. Comprising mostly lush readings of little-known hits, it includes a heartbreaking take of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren," a supremely affecting run-through of Bob Dylan's "One More Cup of Coffee," and, best of all, a rarefied version of Tim Rose's "Morning Dew." And his version of the Youngbloods' "Darkness, Darkness" is the sexiest thing this side of Jeff Buckley's "Everybody Here Wants You." --Aidin Vaziri

Robert Plant's Dreamland gives me the perfect excuse to go off on a rant about Classic-Rock Radio. Every radio market in America has at least one of these, the ones for whom time began around 1968 with the advent of psychedelic rock and ended ca. 1977 with the advent of Punk. The stations playing songs from a decade earlier than Classic Rock's birth at least have the honesty to call themselves Oldies stations. Meanwhile, the good old Classic Rock stations stay stuck in their endless, mindless time-warp loop of "Led Zeppelin A-to-Z Weekends" and "Let's roll some dice and see how many songs in a row to play by the Floyd Boys." What gets me about those stations is that I can understand their reluctance to play anything recorded since the invention of the CD. I disagree with them 100% but at least I understand the (closed) mindset. It is, after all, called Classic Rock for a reason, so it should be classic right? But what gets me is the way they turn on their own idols, worshipping only the fading black and white images of careers that are still extant and in some cases even vital.

Which brings me to Mr. Plant. Turn on a radio just about anywhere and spin the dial and you'll find Plant's three-decades-old work with Led Zep playing. But why in the name of all that is good and proper, is "Darkness Darkness" not played in heavy rotation? So the geezers love "Kashmir" so much it's practically a religion, while that song's spiritual descendent, and a hell of a great tune, gets ignored.

Dreamland is mostly made up of covers of old blues and folk songs, given the full-on psychedelic treatment, usually of the heavy variety.

Some aging classic rockers whose muses are not currently tending to them are smart enough to realize it (although evidently not many). A number of these artists responded by recording collections of cover songs while waiting for inspiration to return. While these releases are certainly not ambiguous and almost never on par with the said artists' top work, they are definitely better than hearing one's favorites stumbling at composing new originals. Bob Dylan, for example, followed 1990's mediocre Under the Red Sky, with two admirable collections of traditional folk songs, 1992's Good as I Been to You and 1993's World Gone Wrong. Metallica, who gravely upset fans with their MTV-conforming 1996 and 1997 albums, Load and Reload, regained some esteem with their 1998 covers album, Garage Inc. Paul McCartney concluded a decade of baffling creative decisions with 1999's Run Devil Run, a very fun collection of fifties pop songs. Robert Plant, who has not been heard from since Walking Into Clarksdale, his ploddingly boring 1998 collaboration with his former Led Zeppelin band-mate Jimmy Page, is the latest veteran rocker to release an album of (mostly) covers, this year's Dreamland.
Dreamland consists mainly of songs from the American folk-rock scene of the nineteen-sixties. This is no new territory for Mr. Plant whose live repertoire has always included a few nods to Spirit, Love and Moby Grape. He understands the sonic textures and emotional atmospheres that make these songs tick and that is evident on each of Dreamland's ontarget renditions.

This is a truly wonderful cd. All of the songs are beautifully arranged and performed flawlessly. There is a certain quiet dignity in this recording that is truly refreshing to ears that are tired of the usual garbage that pollutes popular music these days.
This latest outting exhibits Plant's usual originality; he never makes the same cd twice which is something I cannot say for any of the other "oldheads" who still make records these days. This is not an album that was made for the sake of making a record, and it shows. (sorry Mick Jagger, Phil Collins, Rod Stewart et al, etc etc, ad nauseum....these are not second rate pop songs designed to sell) As is usual for Plant, this recording is fresh and inspired, with a great experimental edge that sounds as futuristic as it does classic.
The material consists mainly of covers; they are songs that meant a lot to Robert as he was growing up. He made this recording as a way to share this with everyone. Kind of a sentimental chap, that old Robert guy is.
The entire album has a smoky, ethereal quality to it, so you might really enjoy listening to it in mood lighting. (I would call some of the pieces "night songs") The band combines old blues riffs with exotic eastern sounds, and lush electronic arrangements. What's more, the band's playing is really impressive...this is not just a "back up" band for a famous singer. These men are all serious musicians in their own right, and they work together so well it will remind you of how truly great a band can sound when they click together.
In conclusion, I would recommend this album to anyone who enjoys music that is approachable and speaks from the heart. This is not like the other crap in the new release bin. There will be no teeny bopper talentless "divas" to be found.
