Robert Plant and the Strange Sensation

Album Title: Mighty Rearranger
Release Date: May 10, 2005
Rating:
Genre: Rock
His first studio album since 2002's Dreamland, Robert Plant reassembled his band the Strange Sensation for Mighty Rearranger. Equipped with 12 original tracks, Plant has managed to make a very sexy album - but that's to be expected considering his illustrious past. Extra breathy and soft, Plant's vocals aren't what they used to be, but they work wonders when layered as they are on first single "Shine It All Around". The entire record is pulsing with African beats, and when things slow down ("All The King's Horses"), the acoustic guitar is there like a tried and true friend. Eastern influence, and of course, the blues, are also found in abundance, with it all mixing together like squashed peanuts and grapes between two slices of bread - oddly satisfying. If that's not enough genres for ya, check out the hidden track, a techno-ish remix of "Shine It All Around" featuring Robert the Robot on lead vox. Needless to say, this isn't Led Zeppelin redux, but fans of the legendary band (read: everyone) will find no problem getting their rock on to Mighty Rearranger.
