Audio Mixers: David Cole; Bob Seger. Recording information: Home Studios, MI; Ocean Way Studios, Nashville, TN. Of all the heartland-based "working class rockers" of the 1970s and '80s, Bob Seger was one of the most consistently credible and satisfying. Not only did he brandish a muscular classic rock sound, but he was a talented songwriter, giving equal emphasis to rebellious electric barnstormers and melancholic, thoughtful folk-tinged tunes. Seger's spotlight may have faded by 2006's FACE THE PROMISE, but that doesn't mean any of his power as a singer, songwriter, and performer had diminished. Seger's gruff voice sounds as weathered and gutsy as ever, and his status as an elder statesman hasn't led him to turn down his amplifiers a single notch, as the pounding title track and "Wreck This Heart," the album's opener, prove. But one of Seger's great strengths has always been his reflective, acoustic-driven songs, and "No Matter Who You Are" and "Won't Stop" deliver on that count, demonstrating that even after all these years Seger still has his touch.

Rolling Stone (p.84) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Bob Seger's first album in more than a decade excels at stout, lucidly sung rock-soul-blues-gospel..." Entertainment Weekly (p.77) - "The Midwesterner's new disc highlights his unadorned, plainspoken style, best experienced on rugged blue-collar ruminations like 'Wreck This Heart'..." -- Grade: B

    If yo love Bob Segar - this CD was worth the wait!! Every song is pure Segar. Kid Rock accompanies him on one song, which was written by Vince Gill. You have GOT to have this!! Now I'm just waiting for the tour to come to LA... ... ...Welcome back Bob!!! We missed you more than words can say!!

  • Face the Promise

    Bob Seger doesn't know how to turn out a bad piece of music. This CD is no exception. I recommend this highly to all Seger fans. Those that don't know his work, shame on you. Get this CD for a great experience. Then go out and get all of his other CDs. Happy Listening.
