With "Carnaby Street" , the actor / singer returns with an album very rock'n'roll, but also full of blues influences, as the aperture range "Painkiller" . Then the tempo picks up with "Carnaby Street" or "Forgive Me" , and it takes a real pleasure to listen to that gravelly voice and the guitars sharp. "Route 69" is one of my favorite songs, the chorus hook and the entire song makes exercise. Then, "Please Stay" is in the best tradition of the blues with finesse and sensitivity. Back to bloody well rock with"Little Latin Lover" , and we can not help doing a little comparison with Rod Stewart voice side. Finally, a true blues / rock with "My Baby Saved My Ass" who do not lack humor. "Carnaby Street" is a very successful album, and Des Barres has nothing to envy to other sizes of its kind, therefore strongly recommended.
