    It feels true to who he is today: an entertainer who is happy to reveal part of his heart because he now knows there's an audience who cares.

    Another Country largely continues the same unashamedly nostalgic tone [of 2013's Time] [Dec 2015, p.79]
  3. Given its sudden sharp downward turn, it’s hard to unreservedly recommend Another Country. But there are enough decent moments to justify a bit of iTunes cherry-picking, at least.

    The opening song Love Is, which he sings with a touch of the Gaelic, could almost be a track by The Waterboys and might easily soundbed one of those ghastly Irish cider ads where implausibly airbrushed Hibernians flaunt their trendy facial hair. He recovers from this false start to concentrate on some ex-pat musings with a side order of standard US FM rock punctuated with bursts of mariachi on Please.

    Ironically, the project's cheesiest song manages to be the most fun.

    Another Country has far too many moments that will have them lurching for the track-forward button while admitting this once talented songwriter needs someone to tell him when his reach exceeds his grasp.

    Another Country isn’t a complete disaster. There are a handful of decent songs.

    Com "Another Country" Rod Stewart traz outra excelente surpresa, apenas dois anos depois de seu excelente álbum de retorno "Time" lançado emCom "Another Country" Rod Stewart traz outra excelente surpresa, apenas dois anos depois de seu excelente álbum de retorno "Time" lançado em 2013.

    "Another Country" continua com excelência a volta de inspiração tanto nas composições quanto na excelentes melodias, sobre as composições que o próprio Stewart afirmou ter desde 2001, quando lançou "Human" álbum de estúdio no qual raramente Rod Stewart não compôs sequer uma única música, logo depois começou a fazer uma longa "coletânea" de 5 álbums de estúdio interpretando clássicos da música americana, um álbum de natal, outro de Soul, e o excelente de clássicos do Rock.

    Se levamos em conta, a coesão melódica do álbum, Rod Stewart com "Another Country" ainda conseguiu superar o antecessor "Time".

    Even Little better than the last album "Time" of 2013.

    Rod Stewart isn't just return the inspiration to written songs again, but also
    Even Little better than the last album "Time" of 2013.

    Rod Stewart isn't just return the inspiration to written songs again, but also return the inspiration to make great albums and great songs that her fans don't see it since their last great album back in more than 2 decades "Vagabond Heart" of 1991.

    All begin in Stewart Great Comeback album "Time" but he just surpass himself in this new album made in just two years after he comeback album.

    "Another Country" isn't really a great improvement above her last album because the album "Time" is Really a great album, and also was his best album since "Vagabond Heart". But in terms of "Consistence" & "Balance" in both "songs" and "melodies" over the 3 phases of album the beggining, the middle and end, I have to recognize that Rod Stewart with "Another Country" just surpass in this aspect over the last album "Time".

    Is really a great Shame that "So Called Music Critics" seems to be Unable to Enjoy and Recognize how great this Rod Stewart album is.

    I want to Congratulate Stephen Thomas Erlewine from All Music, even i disagree with her mixed review in Time (2013), and Uncut Magazine Critic, for be the only critics Able to Enjoy the Great Sir. Rod Stewart.

    And also i want to Dismiss the fool critics and even more the fool ratings of American Songwritten & The Guardian. and a P.S for Rolling Stone Critic improve your ears and listenings too.
