Review: This Way Up (Joe Molland)

This Way Up (Joe Molland)
(2014, Gonzo Multimedia)
We have already said in a previous chronicle the success of Return To Memphis last job Joey Molland sparked an increased interest in the work of formerBadfinger which led to Gonzo Multimediaediting at a stroke, two historical documents: Demos Old And New, on which attention is focused since the reissue of 2001 album, This Way Up , in height as Joe Molland . This Way Up features a set of topics within the spectrumrock soft, naturally with references to Badfinger and the Beatles . Guitarssoft , calm melodies and frequent use of the mark the rhythmic acoustic guitar rhythms. And in 2001 the album was well received, it now seems a little more difficult because these songs appear too dated and not have that aura of immortality. There are of course some good moments. Incidentally, neither could it be otherwise, given the relative success at the time. For example, the low work in superb The Bust ; achieved with a great melodyThis Must Be Love ; soil bluesy in Moonlight ; rhythms in the piano cabaret ofAnother Honeymoon ; the grand finale guitar work on What Else (Nothing) - interestingly one of the most monotonous themes of the disc; and especially the rhythms rock 'n' roll of Three Minute Warning . As can be seen, it is almost generally, detail included in the songs and not all the topics. So, This Way Up turns out to be a hard something repetitive that at any time it appears that will explode, jump to the level of immortality ... but never can.
