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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

He's done better, but in my mind he can do no wrong. His "walk me out in the morning dew" is almost as good as Jeff Beck's rendition. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Susan P.
