|Track by Track Review|
This is part rock music and part old school soul. I like the guitar sound on this, but in some ways this feels a bit over-produced. Still, it's a solid tune.
Built on a slow soul meets pop music groove, this is tasty stuff.
Loves Me Like You|
Here we get a slow moving soul grind that's just so classic in sound and motif. It's such a great tune.
And My Guitar|
As you might expect, there is some cool guitar built into this thing. It's one part classic soul and one part guitar based alternative rock. It's all class.
This is a classy, smooth soul number. It has a lot of jazz in the mix. It's slow and just so sultry.
Bobby Womack is heard on backing vocals here. Snoop Dogg is also featured on this thing. The cut is another killer soul journey. I dig the rap on this cut.
There is no big change here, but instead this is a classic sounding piece of soul music. I like the blend of vocals and the various layers of them that are all over this thing.
This is more of a rocker. It's a nice change and a good tune. it's just plain fun. There is some great funk in the mix here, too.
Here Womack covers John Mayer. In a lot of ways this really makes me think of Prince. It's a cool slow rocker with some great guitar work.
I really like this rocker. It's a lot more modern in texture. It's another that makes me think of Prince quite a bit. Sure, there is still some classic soul in the mix, but this is newer in texture and delivery.
This is a much harder rocking song. The guitars go to eleven on this. It's part Lenny Kravitz and part Prince.
Something Down On It|
Wow! This is almost heavy metal. It pounds out with screaming guitar and is just so cool. Again, I think of Lenny Kravitz here, but this is much harder edged than that. This is a great way to end things in style.

BINKY WOMACK REVIEW

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?
Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
