Album Review

Widely considered one of the more soulful voices of hard rock, Glenn Hughes has appeared on countless releases over the years in a career spanning four decades. And with such a long and steady output, it may be a bit difficult for fans to have checked out the majority of all the projects that he's been involved with over the years. But with the arrival of the 2007 double-disc compilation, This Time Around, Hughes' career is finally properly put into perspective. And as evidenced by the set's 29 tracks (which mix studio and live versions), Hughes' voice has remained in top form throughout — straight up to the modern day. Name a project that Hughes has had his name linked to at one point or another, and it's sure to be here. Top standouts include a pair of tracks from Trapeze (the moody "Medusa" and the funky "You Are the Music"), Deep Purple (two more funk-rockers — "You Can't Do It Right" and "Gettin' Tighter"), and Black Sabbath (the monstrous ballad, "No Stranger to Love"). Additionally, you'll find several fleeting-yet-worthy collaborations with others, including Pat Thrall ("Muscle and Blood"), Gary Moore ("Reach for the Sky"), and Tony Iommi ("Dopamine"), and of course, there's plenty of solo Hughes material, as well. For a fine overview of one of rock's more underrated (yet highly talented) vocalists, This Time Around succeeds in shining the spotlight on Glenn Hughes.
