Comments:
Vs. Death (incl. avoiding & otherwise messing with consequences) the
theme as usual, but if that sounds too rockist, be assured that my
album of the year, Robert Cray Band's Live From Across The Pond, has
plenty pretties to lure us into RC's obsessions. "Whether the right or
the wrong, at least the mystery's gone." But his guitar always thinks
otherwise, sniffing at numbers in a phone booth, extending a tour of
duty in Iraq, even trying to follow somebody down the hall. Now that
Dylan's finished his old-timey-rewired trilogy, maybe he'll check
this, and be reminded of just how deep a modern blues album can go.
