    To say it’s Stewart’s best album for more than 30 years may, ultimately, not be saying much, but it’s refreshing to hear him at the helm of a high-quality record, to hear him singing with heartfelt vigour, and--perhaps most importantly--having fun.

    Overall, it’s a hearty welcome back to one of Britain’s best-selling singers.

    Many tracks are fairly anonymous but ballad "Brighton Beach" and the anthemic "Can't Stop Me Now" serve as reminders that this is the man who brought us "Maggie May." [10 May 2013, p.67]

    Time winds up a bit muddled, swinging from moments of genuine sweetness toward sharp saccharine, but even with all its flaws it's nice to hear Stewart engaged again, both as a writer and a singer.
  5. In place of the suavité we associate with Songbook Rod, we get a whooping, sequenced modernisation of 1970s Guitar-Rock Rod.

    Over production is a constant issue with these tunes, as Stewart (who co-produced) layers guitars, horns, backing vocals and too much of everything on melodies that, by and large, are strong enough to stand on their own in more stripped down arrangements.
  7. 40
    It all goes wrong later on, in a limp succession of ersatz disco ("Sexual Religion"), routine raunch-rock ("Finest Woman") and empty sentiments like "Pure Love", yet another gloss on Pachelbel's Canon.

    This could have been a good album but I can't get past the glossy production and studio-sounding players.

    Had Rod made this with Ronnie
    This could have been a good album but I can't get past the glossy production and studio-sounding players.

    Had Rod made this with Ronnie Wood, Kenny Jones, Ian McLagan, etc, and minimal production... now you're talking.
