iTunes Review

The other half of the Eurythmics, Dave Stewart has spent most of his time since behind the mixing board, producing albums for a number of notable artists over the past few decades. He is part of the new Mick Jagger supergroup Super Heavy, while this long-awaited solo album was recorded in a scant five days at Martina and John McBride’s Blackbird Studios in Nashville. Ironic that a master producer would choose to record his tracks mostly live and with much of the rawness intact. Yet, that is exactly what you hear on the brutal blues of “Beast Called Fame,” the country-folk of “Magic In the Blues” and the tender ballad “All Messed Up” with Martina McBride. They are still polished recordings, considering the high level of talent in the room, but they are every bit performances. Stevie Nicks harmonizes on the piano duet “Cheaper Than Free.” This is roots music with a dose of mainstream pop. The Deluxe Edition includes the touching bonus track “Natalie Wood” and six videos.

Good ole boy

If I write from my ego thinking the music world hung on my every word IMHO this just doesn't live up to my expectations.
If I write from my heart and don't gives a hoot what the music pundits think I give this 5 stars.Dave you have mellowed in your prime and your production skills are finely honed on this one making it your unique Nashville signature. I even enjoyed your tribute to Bob Dylan which made me buy his Nashville Skyline,again. The girls you worked with have never sounded better.Remember when you wave if it has trails then happy trails to you.Thanks I loved it.


This album is a display of Dave Stewart's mastery of songwriting. He also shows his musical versatility, given that Country isn't his primary style of music. A highlight on this album for me is his collaboration with Colbie Caillat, which is really beautiful.

Great music is great music

And Dave Stewart created a modern classic... Who'd think an Englishman in Nashville would sound so authentic and natural.

Best known as one-half of the groundbreaking synth pop duo Eurythmics, Dave Stewart was also a highly successful producer and, on occasion, a solo artist. David A. Stewart (as he also sometimes was credited on record) was born September 9, 1952 in Sunderland, England; the product of an upper-middle class family, he enjoyed his first taste of musical success during the early '70s while fronting the band Longdancer. The group seemed poised for big things after signing to Elton John's Rocket Records,...
