Glide Review - Nils Lofgren - Old School

Hey All

Got a new review up over at Glide.

Read it Right C'here!!!!

It is of Nils Lofgren's newest release Old School and safe to say I won't be going back to listen to this all that often...if ever.

I pretty much say it all in the review above, so I won't belabor the point, things just don't feel right when Nils wants to pump up the energy.

The "rockers" presented here are woefully misguided, I guess it is an attempt to reach out to people his own age, and I never begrudge aging rockers, hell some of them are still my favorites, but these songs just sound petty. 

If the album had more of a focus on the ballads it would have went over better.  "Love Stumbles On" and "Irish Angel" (which is a cover originally written by Bruce McCabe) are both very pleasing and fit his style well.  1 and 1/2 stars states on the rating scale states "If someone hasn't heard it, they aren't missing anything - skip it" that sums it up nicely...those stars do come in handy sometimes...

Some tracks to sample:
"Old School"

"Irish Angel"

"Love Stumbles On"
