Speaks his mind on music & movies!
The Tragically Hip were a band that caught my ear with their ‘Up To Here’ album. I devoured that one. So I anticipated Road Apples to see if they could follow it up. I wasn’t disappointed. I got what I wanted and more. They kick the album off with a great rocker ‘Little Bones’. These guys rock hard and have their own sound. Gord’s vocals are perfect and his lyrics conjure up vivid images.
TH are a tight band that changes things up. They can get into slower grooves. They write good songs backed by great music, Rock n roll Hip style. They’re good. Some real good rockers on this record. The reason I came back for more. It always helps to have a great lead singer who writes good words and has passion. The guitar attack is great and drums and bass lay down a real solid back bone.
This album never gets old with me. All their work is solid and I could have featured anyone of their records but I chose ‘Road Apples because it had an impact and made me a forever fan. You knew they would keep pumping out quality music. A Canadian bar band that did good similar to their cousins The Band.
The Tragically Hip really do have their own sound and I dig it. Not a weak cut on this really good record.
