The last Clapton CD I heard was Back Home, and it was dreadful! This one is not much better. An impressive list of guest musicians, good sound and production, but quite boring and ordinary. This time around he has taken a bunch of old songs and made a CD out of it. No original compositions, didn't Rod Stewart do this?
It appears that Clapton has become content with just being Clapton, much like the Stones have done. Nothing new here, same old tired licks. At least Jeff Beck still puts out interesting music, and takes chances. I'm just glad I borrowed it from the library and didn't waste good money on something so mediocre.
