The human riff’s third solo album – and first since 1992’s Main Offender – sounds pretty much exactly as you’d want or expect it to.
Whether it’s the kind of vaguely bluesy rock the Stones specialised in 30 years ago (Trouble), scratchy acoustic blues (the title track) or the fantastically autobiographical Amnesia (It seems I’ve been around – I can’t recall the past”!), it’s all solid stuff .
Even Love Overdue, which sounds like reggae made by someone whose only exposure to the genre is Led Zeppelin’s D’Yer Mak’er, is great fun and thoroughly enjoyable.
