Whoa !!! kids, kids, kids....WHAT ARE Y'ALL SAYIN' HERE !?!?!... Amazon so kindly dropped this (RAISING SAND) off a number of hours back and what can I say, it is an AMAZING CD. PLANT(recent solo)/KRAUSS meet TOM WAITS with a DAVID LYNCH movie in your head and a dash of good COUNTRY splashed on your ear drums. MOODY as hell - SO MOODY, way beyond Robert's recent moodiness... Spooky music man - I hear a little bit of The DOORS "MY WILD LOVE" in some of this stuff - a bit of Plant/Page - "RUDE WORLD" here and there. FORTUNE TELLER is straight out of a David Lynch movie - I love the frickin' thing - SO ORIGINAL, there's some high creativity working here..... MELLOW, SPOOKY, MOODY, EXOTIC, OTHER WORLDLY, EXPERIMENTAL, NORTH AFRICAN, SHINE IT ALL AROUND-ISH, PEOPLE TURNING INTO SMOKEY DUST AND ESCAPING THROUGH THE CHIMNEY - exactly how it is when you let the 17 year old Tahitian twins out of the basement for a whole lotta love and lemon squeezin' , and all that other hoochie coochie stuff - no zeppelin in sight, not a peep, not a riff.....BONZO has left the building...... Plant, don't leave us, you STILL have a head full of spooky/kooky effing BRILLIANT idea's....
