Robert Plant…

… and the Strange Sensations; I finally got around to listening to their album, Mighty Rearranger, yesterday. It’s not bad. The different songs are moderately eclectic, which is nice…

Some of the lyrics are derivative. Well, OK, I’ve found two examples. And for a little while I was a bit concerned that saying that was sacrilegeous… until I remembered that for starters I’m only assuming that it was Robert Plant who wrote the lyrics, and for a second, this is the man who wrote numerous songs with strong references to Lord of the Rings, which I heartily approved. The lyrics? One song talks about “The Father, Son and Holy Ghost” doing something near the coast (American Pie, of course); another has something about “your love light” – leaving it on or something (Blues Brothers 2000).

Overall, I like it.
