The legendary singer-songwriter Sir Rod Stewart returns with an album featuring all new material. Sir Rod is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with more than 250 million rec-ords sold worldwide during a stellar career.

This 31st solo album by the former Faces frontman is a perfect example of the record as rollercoaster. It starts off with tracks like the electro-Celtic One More Time and the rocking Some Kind of Wonderful. And in the same vein, also note the tribute to the late Marc Bolan of T. Rex, in the form of a boogie (Born to Boogie), as well as Kookooaramabama, a sort of pastiche of George Michael’s I Want Your Sex, perfectly assimilating the latter’s lightness of touch. But in the second part of the album, the tone changes radically. The 76-year-old British singer puts on his sentimental hat to declare his love for his wife Penny (I Can’t Imagine) and to pay tribute to his father (Touchline). As for the song that gives the album its title, it deals—making use of a lot of strings and piano—with the dilemma between loyalty to one’s native land and a desire to go elsewhere (it is a cover of a Marc Jordan song released in 2004). The covers section also includes Johnny Cash’s These Are My People, enhanced with bagpipes, fiddles and electric guitar. After a 50-year career and more than 250 million records sold, Rod the Mod is still seducing his audience and making them dance. – Nicolas Magenham
