Paul Westerberg has released him most recent CD entitled Stereo.
I wish it weren?t the case but, it?s not everyday that I get a CD from an artist that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can?t force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Stereo. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.
The nice thing about a CD like this is when the talent is this rich even if Rock isn?t your favorite genre you still can?t help but appreciate the greatness of the artist.
If you?re a Paul Westerberg fan this is a CD your collection flat cannot be without. In fact, this is one of those CDs that you don?t even have to be a fan of Westerberg, or even Rock to know is good. It?s just good music. Period.
While this entire CD is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 5 – disc 1 – Knock It Right Out, track 3 – disc 2 – Only Lie Worth Telling, and track 13 – disc 2 – Call That Gone.
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – High Time. Outstanding!
