Album Review

Mike Zito is a rocker at heart, influenced by his AOR heroes and the music he grew up with living from St. Louis to Texas. There's a distinct blues element present on this, his fifth CD, but it is subsumed by the Southern-style rock & roll songs he has developed and refined. Playing tunes that define his life, Zito's music needs little explanation or embellishment — he's as straightforward as they come, with no punches pulled. He's prone to get funky on occasion, or go into acoustic unplugged mode, but for the most part, he sticks to tried-and-true upbeat rock songs such as "Love Like This" and "Universe," which define where he's at. The autobiographical "Time To Go Home" seems to show that as much as he loves this life, he's quite able to leave it behind and head for the shed. A tough yet soulful singer, Zito's guitar playing is not all that remarkable, but he gets the job done, and occasionally reflects Wes Montgomery's chords and stingers. What makes this recording a cut above is the excellent backing bands he mixes and matches, including keyboardist Benmont Tench, backup vocalists Theresa James or CeCe Bullard, bassist Hutch Hutchinson, drummer Tony Braunagel, and horn players Joe Sublett and Darrell Leonard, all pulled together by executive producer Randy Chortkoff. While there's a consistency within the repeated same thing, Zito's got a world of potential, and he's just scratching the surface. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi

Customer Reviews

where did this guy come from

I stumbled upon this album intrigued by a re-make of " little red corvette" and have really enjoyed all the music --- especially "holding out for love","corvette", "blinded", and two others.I think we will see corvette climb the charts. Great album.

little red corvette

"little red corvette" -- wow! i bought this album after hearing the Prince cover and i'm not disappointed. also listening to Eddie Skuller, and Ruthie Foster -- for contemporary blues, if that's your thang!

THIS DUDE IS THE REAL DEAL!!

To put it plainly, this dude is the bomb. I know him and his son and they are the best people you could ever know. Buy like 4 copies of the CD.
