'Too Much Funky Business' ??? (Classic Rock Review 6/10)
Classic Rock do not seem to want to let Glenn be free of his Deep Purple past.
They just don't get it!!
Although high praise in parts ('voice is as powerful and emotive as ever' , 'when this record is good it's very good') the review is critical of F.U.N.K.s/GH's 'wholesale revisionism' and 'disownment of one's past'.
It beggars belief that they criticise the track 'Where's There's A Will'). This for me is a standout track and one that would have not been out of place on 'Play Me Out' (they DEFINITELY would not GET THAT ONE!!)
Glenn is a relevant modern artist making new 'classics' not rehashing and/or touring on the back of albums made 30 plus years ago.
Like 'FEEL' and 'PMO' I believe 'FUNK' will be an album that will be revisited and will be seen as a classic 'GLENN HUGHES' album that will form a cornerstone of an already impressive body (of SOLO!!!) work.
