Album Review: Rod Stewart - Another Country
Graham Clark, Features Writer
After the success of his last album which consisted of new songs written by the man himself, it is good to hear that he has not gone back to the Great American Songbook albums and released an album again of new songs.

You might think it is an album of country songs with the album title but it is far from this. There is reggae, rock and ska on the album.

The first song on the album is Love Is, a Celtic influenced track that goes back to his Glasgow roots. It is back to the rockier material on Please, it could even be an old Faces track, one to please the die hard fans.

Walking In The Sunshine goes back to his Young Hearts Run Free period, whilst there is a touch of reggae on Love and Be Loved, it might sound a bit contrived but the reggae style suits him and his voice.

The Celtic influence continues on We Can Win which is not surprising as it has a lyric all about his beloved Celtic Football Club.

He still does the ballads too on Can We Stay Home Tonight?

It is an album that shows that he is still as good as ever. When he tours the UK next year it will be hard to compile the set list with new tracks as good as these to sing alongside his older songs.

Most of the songs on the album were written and produced by Stewart. Even if you are not a Rod Stewart fan, give it a listen, you might be surprised.

The album is released this Friday 30 October 2015.
