Rod Stewart "Time" Review



 Rod Stewart has spent four decades being a rock star, three being a parent, and has a new album's worth of rollicking stories to tell.

Time is his first album of new material in almost 20 years (and his hairstyle hasn't changed one bit!)

 I can still remember the first time I listened to Rod Stewart's music when I was in my early childhood and his distinct voice captivated me. I was an instant fan. I really enjoyed listening to this album. It is new and fresh and well written.

There are different tempo songs to appeal to all. Time, released May 7th, 2013, marks Stewart's long-awaited return to his songwriting roots and features 12 tracks, 11 of which he wrote and produced. The album was born from a burst of inspiration that came while Rod was reviewing his life for his recent memoir.

Rod rediscovered his voice as a songwriter and rekindled his gift for writing the honest, nerve-touching narratives that have been the cornerstone to the first three decades of his career. "Suddenly ideas for lyrics were piling up in my head," he says. "Next thing I knew, I had a song called 'It's Over' about divorce and separation. And now I was getting up in the middle of the night and scrambling for a pen to write things down, which has never happened to me. I finished seven or eight songs very quickly and I still wasn't done, and it became apparent that I would eventually have a whole album of material to record."

 Along with the release of Time, Stewart is set to embark on the European leg of his Live the Life tour on June 1st, while American dates with Steve Winwood will kick off October 17th.

  1. I can tell by your review that you are a Rod Stewart fan, as am I. I too can remember listening and trying to sing along in that "crooning" sort of way that he has. He is one of those "bucket list" ppl that I would love to see in person! Thanks for the review.
