|GOV'T MULE - Shout! [2CD] (2013) |
Founder member of Southern / Classic Rock giants GOV'T MULE and Grammy winner Warren Haynes is one of my favorite rock guitar players from
outside the Melodic Hard scene.
To be released next week, "Shout!" is Gov’t Mule’s first studio set in
four years, and the band is trying something different for this, their
10th record: it's a double album - one CD collecting 11 new tracks, and
the other featuring an all-star line-up of artists interpreting most of
The main "Shout!" Gov’t Mule-only CD is one of band's most accessible releases so far.
There’s plenty of deep grooves, sparkling riffs, complex time changes
and intricate band interplay, but also a welcome sense of melody, space
and time. The music shifts from pulsating, riff-driven classic rock, to
melodic slow blues, funk, slide-led roots rock, soul and uptempo catchy
With the exception of three songs written with specific artists in mind,
"Shout!" is an album of brand new material that was recorded before the
guests were chosen to perform the new material on the second disc.
The bonus disc is fraught with potential difficulties, not least the
possibility that it might fail to measure up to the band’s own
recording. But while Warren lays down a marker with some trademark
vocals, and the band play superbly, the specially invited guests make
sure that the best laid plans are never in danger of failing.
As example, the Voice of Rock Glenn Hughes performs an extravagant intro
and some trademark phrasing on the haunting vintage rocker "No Reward",
one of 11 bonus tracks that showcase the joys of interpretative
Warren incorporates a suitably tougher vocal on "Bring On The Music" a
tribute to Free which could just as easily be Bad Company. Cult singer
Ty Taylor stamps his own mark on the piece with clarity of diction,
expansive leads and real presence.
Elvis Costello’s adds an enjoyable and welcomed new wave urgency on
"Funny Little Tragedy", while the album’s coolest groove "When The World
Gets Small" features both Warren and Steve Winwood at their best
respectively. It sounds like the song Traffic never wrote back in a day.
"Shout!" deserves all the plaudits that will surely come its way. Few
bands have a reputation for making music as consistently honest, organic
and daring as Gov’t Mule. This is Classic Rock, pure and traditional
but a the same time adventurous and with a strong sense of vitality;
this music has flesh and bones.
As plus, it’s an album that restores your faith in guest projects, where all the artists featured really add a new dimension to the songs.
Classic Rock is alive in Gov’t Mule's hands.
