 A great new album from Todd.

I saw the live performance of State at Birmingham O2 Academy, and was blown away by the energy. I have followed Todd Rundgren since 1973, so I know as a 'survivor' as Todd calls us, to expect the unexpected. You have to be open minded and embrace his talent as an artist. No two albums are the same. With bands like the Rolling Stones etc you know what to expect. Todd will never be a T.R. tribute band. I think this is one of his best albums for a long time. How many other artists are producing music like this at the age of 65!
Keep moving forward Todd.

 Stand out hit. live album. Add padding.

Having only known of TR from 'Can we still be friends' and the track 'in my mouth' from the Uncut compilation CD I thought this would be as good. Err no. This is the deluxe edition which includes a live CD which is ok, at times like Maze due to a whole orchestra behind him. And that seems to be the problem for me. The live CD benefits hugely from an orchestra, whereas the new studio album doesn't have it. Only an outstanding track - In My Mouth- which was the reason for buying the album. The rest seems like he thought, I know lets give this a try, and here he is a bit like Moby following 18 and Play albums - they both run out of steam and so release a lot of stuff that is largely padding.
Not sure if regular fans will love this album, I had no previous to compare so can only take it on its own merits, but I honestly wouldn't bother. I brought the Anthology in the same week, and that is a great collection, whereas this feels like TG is trying too hard to be "down with the kids", which works about as well as Madonna engaging the talents of William Orbit. It doesn't!
Weak, nothing remotely moving, but it does have the most infectious dance track I have heard this year (in my mouth). And that is worth the price of an album all day long. Not much else going on to speak of though.
