Album Review

Guitarist Robin Trower enjoyed considerable success in the mid-'70s with his tasteful, Jimi Hendrix-inspired style of blues-rock. The Procol Harum veteran's popularity faded as the 1980s progressed, but Trower generally stayed active. 1987's Passion is interesting because it straddles '70s grittiness and '80s slickness. Trower and his band — lead vocalist Davey Pattison, bass guitarist/vocalist Dave Bronze, and drummer Pete Thompson — form a tight, efficient unit. The simple textures provided by guest keyboardists Robert A. Martin and Reg Webb give the songs extra depth. "Caroline" earned a bit of rock radio airplay, and justifiably so, thanks to its hooks and Trower's warm guitar solo; Pattison's singing is reliable, but his voice isn't quite as rich, deep and distinctive as that of James Dewar, Trower's best-known vocalist. "If Forever" is a clean, no-frills ballad, and Trower's guitar solo balances blues and pop. Both "Won't Even Think About You" and "Passion" are melodic hard rock. The soothing instrumental "Night" gives Passion an enjoyable change of pace.

Customer Reviews

Rubbish

I am a huge robin trower fan, but this album is pure 80's rubbish. Its not the rockin psycodellicness that Trower made his name in, and this album is really bad. I highly recomend checking out some of his other works (Bridge of Sighs is a great place to start and they recently got it on itunes).

Passion

Good album - especially Caroline - not as powerful as Bridge of Sighs, but still one of the finest guitarists alive.

Great Album

I love Robin Trower. Passion gets five stars just for Caroline and No Time. Davey Pattison has to be one of greatest male vocalist of all time next to Steve Perry.

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....
