Album Review

Robin Trower's first rock, as opposed to blues, studio album in five years, returns the guitarist to the fluid, Hendrix-infused trio sound of his salad days. While the songwriting isn't quite up to the quality of his '70s work, Trower's snaky, echoed, languid guitar and his powerful duo's sympathetic backing make this a welcome addition to his extensive catalog. While the smooth, soulful whisky-soaked vocals of original singer Jimmy Dewer are sorely missed (Trower, who handles some of the singing here is at best adequate), the songs still shimmer with the uniquely silvery quality fans have come to expect from the guitarist. Tunes like "Into Dusk," "Run With the Wolves," and, especially, the nine-minute opening title track with their "Little Wing"-"Third Stone From the Sun" grooves, would have been right at home on Bridge of Sighs. The snappy mid-tempo rocker "Too Much Joy" shoehorns Trower's distinctive guitar solo into a three-minute pop tune, but the similarly inclined chunky "This Old World" doesn't rise above its blues-rock clichés. Trower excels on ballads and slightly funky, slowly simmering psychedelic rockers like "Take This River" where his lava lamp guitar flourishes intricately weave between the dreamy words and construct musical visions uniquely his own. Likely difficult to find because of its indie label release, Go My Way is a welcome return from Robin Trower. Those unfamiliar with his work are advised to first hunt down his '70s classics, but longtime fans will be delighted with this solid, uncompromising album.

Customer Reviews

Great CD!

Not the typical Robin Trower disc but this CD delivers the most diverse mix ever for RT. You'll hear shades of Bob Dylan to The RedHot Chillipeppers on this CD! A must have for all Trower fans and with a little radio support would surely expand RT's fanbase!!!

Trower power!!!

The material on this record is as good as anything in Robin's salad days of the 70's...the only missing element is the voice of the inimitable James Dewar. The guitar shimmers and burns with the refined and confident tone of a true master. "Go My Way" shows how Trower has continued to grow as an artist long after his celebrity had faded. Robin is a brilliant artist of the highest order.

Just Discovered a 16 year-old album!

Run With The Wolves and Into Dust are very cool.

Throughout his long and winding solo career, guitarist Robin Trower has had to endure countless comparisons to Jimi Hendrix, due to his uncanny ability to channel Hendrix's bluesy/psychedelic, Fender Strat-fueled playing style. Born on March 9, 1945, in Catford, England, Trower spent the early '60s playing guitar in various London-based outfits, the most successful one being the R&B group the Paramounts, who specialized mostly in covers, but managed to issue several singles between 1963 and 1965....
