Time And Emotion Guitar Gems From Robin Trower

Time And Emotion Guitar Gems From Robin Trower

Time And Emotion Guitar Gems From Robin Trower

 

 

Time And Emotion New Album of Guitar Gems From Robin Trower.  The gems are eleven tracks that define the guitar tone and textures of the vocals of Robin as he delivers blues dripping with blues powered emotional intent that are his trademark.  Time and Emotion, steps on his last album Know Where You Are Going To, why? The  journey we explore here has a sense of purpose and clear direction.

The opening tracks is sound are full, smoothed at the edges with the suggestion of a bountiful harvest under the glow of a harvest moon on the opening track of The Land Of Plenty. Nothing could be further from the truth this is blues not Americana. The lyrics add an edge to the guitar as being unsatisfied, not understanding when enough is enough. Blues delivered with classic certainty and assurance for modern times full of dis-contentment and uncertainty.  The question is will this quality be maintained across the album, yes it most definitely does as proved by What Was I Worth To You. Quickly followed by the shortest number I’m Gone. With a hardened edge this s the power trio working in short sharp bursts this is Trower showing us he can do modern he still is contemporary.

His timing is impeccable creating space and time, nothing is rushed there is time for the notes to be played and the sound is never cluttered with the need to squeeze in more notes than necessary. This approach from the trio is why on the longer tracks Returned In Kind & If You Believe In Me work, the interaction between Robin’s considered guitar work and the rhythms set down by the commanding combo of drummer Chris Taggart & Livingstone Brown on the bass works like a dream.

The blues light burns with an inner strength, Robin’s is the slow blues drawing out the classy power of the guitar.  The music at times appears to be sparse as the notes shine with individuality; this approach stops from being a self-indulgent exploration of the guitar by Trower’s innate ability, as the cool is brightened and burnished with the wah wah, and the deeper tonal chant of bass and the authoritative stick on skin from Taggart.

Immersed in after two lengthy tracks as you have been taken on an, at times, otherworldly journey of exploration is not the closing of the album it is just over half way through what can follow this? Never fear this guitar wizard has a trick up his sleeve as he states You’re The One.  The sound is full of percussive purpose and guitar work that flows with the certainty that this is the one. It is a track that stands out on its own in the Time and Emotion journey we are being taken on by the power trio.

The album is full of strong chords, interesting licks and deft hooks from the wizard of the six-strings; you would not expect any less into the mix as Robin’s passion and love for the music he plays and creates pulls deep into his playing soul to deliver the tone and makes every note and word count redolent with meaning.  The eleventh gem is the title track pulling the tracks together with Time and Emotion.  The Time is the length of time 72 year-old Robin has been playing music his fans adore and the emotion is the expressive energy that Robin instills into every note he plays and sings.

Once again, Robin Trower’s talents have been woven together to deliver an album full of hidden depths and mystery. Time and Emotion has this wizard of electric blues weaving his magic through the listener’s ears once again. Time And Emotion guitar gems from Robin Trower his guitar leading this blues powered trio eleven gems makes the album a killer there is no filler.
