James Williamson And The Pink Hearts ~ Behind The Shade

From the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, James Williamson, from Iggy & the Stooges is back with his debut album along with Frank Meyer & Petra Haden. The first 2 songs remind me of the raw rock of the Stooges, but, then you get songs like “Pink Hearts Across The Sky” & even, “Miss Misery”, which has a more melodic draw to the music than Williamson’s previous work. “The Revolution Stomp” brings you right back into the raw music the the Iggy & the Stooges fans would really like. The title song, really didn’t work for me, but, after it’s slow build-up, it gets a bit better, then goes right back where it started from. “You Send Me Down” almost has a pop feel to it.  The album ends with a sad song titled “Died A Little Today” which was more of a ballad with more slow strumming, a bit of piano & strings & featuring the vocals of Petra Haden. If you like your music raw & fast with vocals with that gravel sound, this is the album for you. For me, I give this 3.5 out of 5 Music Guru stars. Best songs for me were “Pink Hearts Across The Sky” & “You Send Me Down”.
