Product Description

Human (US Version) by Rod Stewart

Amazon.com

Rod Stewart may yet have the last laugh on those who have accused him of selling out one of rock's great vocal talents. After all, Rod the Mod has matured rather gracefully into a pop singer while many of his rooster-haired contemporaries seem trapped in '70s rock-drag caricature. If Stewart's ongoing sense of musical curiosity was confirmed by his surprising collection of '90s U.K. rock covers (1998's When We Were the New Boys), this album seems more bent on career reinforcement. Helmed by executive producer Rob Dickins, a lineup of production pros (including Mark Taylor and Brian Rawlings, the team behind Cher's Believe) keeps the sound polished, yet warm and spacious. Stewart takes on a mature, reflective slate of songs by an array of contemporary writers (including Macy Gray) and a strong cover of Curtis Mayfield's "It Was Love That We Needed." The album also features a handful of guest stars (including guitarists Slash and Mark Knopfler) and a surprising, playful duet with contemporary stylist/Dickins protégé Helicopter Girl on "Don't Come Around Here." --Jerry McCulley

That Voice- That Style- That Charisma.
Rod has one of the most unusual voices in the industry. The fact that he is still around belting out the tunes is proof that the man is doing something right. This CD is so chock full of great songs. Some deep, some light but most of all just right. The single, "I can't deny it", just grows on you and your are snapping your fingers and doing a little shutterbug around the house. If you love the sounds of Maggie May and some of his older works, then you will like this CD because it's modern yet still very much Rod without all the extra mumbo jumbo to cloud over his voice.
I rank this right up there with one of the must have CD's for the year. It's on the heavy rotation along with Sade and David Grey. Get this, you won't be sorry !!

I am pleased I did not listen to the people who claimed this cd was not worth it. I have been a fan for near 30 years...I was 8 when I got my first Rod Album....and although he has put out some that I did not care for...this is Not one of them. This CD is excellent.

I hesitated to buy this CD. I have been a Rod Fan for many years, since I first heard him on the radio in the 70's. After seeing him for the fourth time in concert a couple of weeks ago, he didn't sing one song from the CD even though it was called the Human Tour. I went out and bought it a few days ago. I saved the receipt and thought about returning it. I am glad I didn't. I popped it in the CD player today and was shocked at how beautiful it is. It's a little different from his usual style but variety can be good. If you love romantic songs and Rod Stewart. Buy this, you will enjoy it.

I have grown up listening to Rod since the early-mid seventies. His unique style and vocals sets him apart from all the rest. There have been great songs on every album, although bashed from critics, and I found that his best songs were the non-commercial stuff found in every album......which makes me wonder who and how do they pick which singles to release!! Rod's last album When We Were the New Boys was a fantastic album. It was a true reflection of what Rod is all about....a mix of great ballads, along with guitar-bashing songs and fast-tempo melodic songs. I have yet to understand how they could have not released the title track as a single......Human is not how I portray my idle...I love tracks written by Rod himself. I hope this isn't the beginning of the end. Although his talent still shines on this album, Rod's claim-to-fame remains the party-type bedroom rocker that can deliver songs that get to the heart. Rod, I'll give you this one but, let's get back to what you are best at.

I am unusual in that I've come to appreciate Rod Stewart, actually love Rod Stewart, late in life. Well, actually I'm in Rods age group. I suppose stuff like American Idol and the reality tv shows in general can unveil folks with powerful voices, often pretty and attractive voices. If Sir Rod were to audition as an unkwown he would be escorted out! Did you know Frank Sinatra did not win on the Major Bowe's Amateur Hour radio show? It was the American Idol of its days in the 1930's. An artiste sings because they must. The music is in them and they vocalise from the heart. You think Peggy Lee could compete with that GAGa person? Ms. Lee had a small voice and her artistry was in singing the song from inside. O.K. Back to Rod, indeed his voice is unusual-it reminds one of Honey in its sweetness and Mahogany in its timber. But man he c an sing,sing,sing. He always has had exquisite taste, in clothes, in choosing and writing songs,in putting the right musicians together in a way that spellbonds us. Sometimes he brings in Otis Redding, a Micheal Bolton [before there was a Bolton], and for kicks find some of the great dance band singer in Britians' Ray Noble Orchestra named Al Bowlly. It's uncanny how much Rod reminds me of Mr. Bowlly who was marvelous and died in an air attack on London in the blitz. This album is sheer,relaxed, soul stirring pleasure. You know what would be great? Rod, get a jazz piano trio, make it a sextette with a flautist, vibes player and acoustic guitar. Material? How about Almost Blue, Born to be Blue, Stella by Starlight, Laura, I'm a Fool to Want You, Green Dolphin Street,All The Things You Are. It would be like sitting in a dim,cool late night Jazz Club. Oh well, this is just another splendid effort of Rod Stewart bringing us pleasure. Very good album mates!

For the past decade Rod Stewart has been trying to re-define his identity. Is he a rocker (When We Were The New Boys)? Is he power rock ballad singer (Vagabond Heart)? Stewart not only re-discovers himself but hits a home run with "Human". He goes back to his roots and influences of Soul, R&B, and Motown to create a very rich and dynamic album. The title track pairs Stewart's gritty vocals with Slash's blistering guitar to create a unique piece of music. Stewart takes the Macy Gray penned "Smitten" and makes it his own. While "I Can't Deny It" is the most commercial and upbeat piece on the album, it is not his best work. There are many hidden gems on "Human" that you will enjoy discovering and savoring over and over again.
