歌詞の和訳はちょっと残念なところがありますが、ラスティ自身のレビューを含む解説は楽曲を知る上でよかったです。Catbox Beach のベースがブライアン・レイと知り、嬉しかったです。
爽やかなラブソングみたいなメロディに昭和ブルース的（“あくまでも個人の感想です” 笑）な歌詞の Hurt Myself、「kiss your own ass if nobody else will」の Ol' Sparky が「自分自身の応援団でいるってこと」な曲だったり、輸入盤の小冊子（日本盤にも封入）にはタイトル通り海中でズボンを脱ごうとしている人物のイラスト。
マスターが原因と説明がありますが、Hurt Myself の後半に小さな雑音が入っているので★４です。ドライブで聞くには気にならない程度で、他にもあるのかもしれませんが気づいていません。
the band members. The more you listen to Rusty's CD, the more you
like it. So my suggestion is.................LISTEN DAILY.
Perhaps someday Paul will be backing up Rusty on a major tour.
(It can happen !!!)
Yes - the album is good. It rocks and slides into a tasty mellowness in all the right spots. The songs are clear and inventive. Hurt Myself is a great opener, followed by 60s influenced Electric Trains which is heavily remeniscent of the Byrds. One of my faves is Coming Back To Earth which clicks on all levels, music, lyrics and meaning. The underlying line through all this is Rusty's guitar playing which is just superb. The only weak tune here, if there is one, might be Devil's spaceship and I'm not sure why. It just seemed a little thin.
I got to see Rusty perform several of these songs acoustically, at a bookstore in Columbus, Ohio during the recent leg of the McCartney tour. Rusty came with a travel Taylor in hand and was simply amazing.
Rusty - if you're listening - I would love to see an acoustic "unplugged" version of your stuff. It was great!
Cheers! - Jeff
there is no question that this is a cd i'll be listening to over and over, for years to come. each song leads into the next, just like a good album should do.
the songs remind me of Jason Falkner somtimes. what i mean by that is, they are well-written pop tunes, with huge hooks and clean vocal lines. "Sentimental Chaos" could easily fit in with any of Jason's releases. and, to me, "Ol' Sparky" would have been right at home on the now-classic Imperial Drag cd from Roger Manning & Eric Dover. (wow, another jellyfish reference!! - i guess you get my point)
the cool part is that all of his guitar tones are here: clean, chimey 6- and 12-string parts, crunchy rhythms, heavy, modern lead tone, and his way-overdriven, almost splattery tone that only he can somehow make work. listen to "Evrerybody Deserves An A in This Country", and you'll hear some of the coolest fuzzy-guitar around.
then there's his vocals: a very hip pop-rock voice that fits perfectly throughout all the songs (except "Catbox Beach", of course).
don't forget his work with Sir Paul. check out the 'Back in the US' dvd, and you'll be treated to even more Rusty!
get this cd. it's full of great songs, great playing, and top-notch production. you'll be singing along in no time!
Great music to drive by (when car racing! I'll prolly put this CD in for my next race!) :)
I checked out Rusty's My Space page and you can see when/where he's playing. GO! You won't be disappointed at all! (unless you miss him playing!)
Cudos to the great time we had at the Viper in Hollywood/L.A. Hoping I can get to the next concert!!! :)
LOVE these guys! One listen and I'm a fan already! :)
