Biographie der Mitwirkenden
'High Water' was written and produced by Kim Wilson's collaboration with Steve Jordan and Danny Kortchmar, these 3 gentlemen from Fabulous Thunderbirds are the only ones performing on this album. With Jordan on the drums, Wilson's harmonica play and less sneering guitar sounds on tracks like 'Too much of everything' and 'Torture' gave 'High Water' a different direction than previous Fab Thunderbrids releases.
Ich finde, dieses Album kann man irgendwie nicht mit den (ganz) alten Thunderbirds vergleichen,
trotzdem haben diese Songs irgendwie einen eigenen Charakter den man sofort erkennt.
Thunderbirds steht drauf, Thunderbirds sind drin.
Nicht alles ist sofort eingängig, lohnt sich aber trotzdem. Reinhören, selber entscheiden.
Music is a matter of taste.
In my opinion, this album somehow cannot be compared with the (very) old Thunderbirds.
Still these songs have their own character which is immediately recognized.
Thunderbirds is on the label, Thunderbirds are inside.
Not every song is easy to get comfortable with right away, still, they are worth it.- listen in, and decide yourself.

For a start, there's a definite hip-hop, almost drum-and-bass feel throughout, as if Kim's been listening to a few G Love or Little Ax albums. Repeated drum and keyboard loops are used, lead guitar is minimal, and the harmonica doesn't solo conventionally, rather the riffs mesh with the overall groove.
This has both benefits and drawbacks - in songs such as "Too Much of Everything", the incorporation of hard-edged rhythms and swampy blues work well. Likewise in "Do Right by Me", the repeated keyboard figure give the track a brittle funk, while "High Water" has a dignified, powerful gospel feel, here the harmonica wails and bubbles under the groove, answering the righteousness of the lyrics.
But the downfall is a reliance of too-similar beats and songs which occasionally sound half-finished. Too often the song choruses are merely the title chanted over and over, and few bridges and rhythm changes are used - even rap and hip-hop have breaks to mix-up the beats. Also the spare feel asks much of the vocalist, and Wilson, although one of the better white blues/r'nb singers around, is found lacking in variation once or twice - and to my ears, he often "over-souls" a little too much, his melismatic touches often sound contrived.
That said, the ballad "Promises" has a gorgeous feel, helped by a fine guitar figure and heartfelt vocal - when he hits that final falsetto he sounds like a man brought to the edge.
So a flawed effort, but often compelling enough to be worthwhile.
