5.0 von 5 Sternen You're a strange animal (if you don't like Gowan) 4. Juni 2015
Von Kyle Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I saw Styx live in concert in Columbus last month and had such an awesome time. I was blown away on how entertaining they were on stage and how great they sound live with their current lineup. I bought there live CD/DVD Memphis show and quickly became a huge fan of Lawrence Gowan. I then recently discovered he had his own band as well (better late than never--I'm 25 if that makes it more forgiving) and after sampling his music on Amazon's digital music page, I purchased 4 of his Gowan albums. Great vocals and great band. I believe Todd Sucherman, part of the current lineup of Styx as well is also the drummer for Gowan.

This album and Great Dirty World - Special Edition might be my favorite albums so far, but they're all awesome and worth listening to over and over. I haven't heard a Gowan song I didn't like or wanted to skip yet. I've been playing all 4 albums all the way through on loop the last couple days at work and it's made my work days a lot more enjoyable. Gowan definitely became one of my favorite artists, enjoying his work with Styx too. I would recommend this album and every Gowan album to anyone.

4.0 von 5 Sternen dated but worth the listen 21. März 2009
Von Montague Withnail - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is a classic "one-off," an assertion substantiated by the delete-bin albums Gowan released subsequently. A largely superb (if derivative) record, Strange Animal is utterly representative of the 1980s "musician impulse" with its equal emphasis on player virtuosity and an "ensemble" ethos. Less complimentary, Strange Animal perhaps has less to do with Larry Gowan's songwriting, which compares favourably to his peers at the time, than the players he miraculously procured for the recording. How a relative "nobody" in the 1980s Toronto music scene collared the "Peter Gabriel rhythm section"--the "legendary" Tony Levin, bass and stick, Jerry Marrotta, drums and percussion--and Split Enz producer, David Tickle, became a source of speculation among Toronto musicians for years. Despite Gowan's richly competent keyboard playing (he is famous for both his Royal Conservatory training and his hardscrabble days as Ronnie Hawkins' piano player) which is often highlighted by catchy melodic phrasing and his ability to write a "hook"--the chorus to "City of the Angels" comes to mind--one can't help wonder how much influence Levin et al. must have had in the construction of the overall product. The two signature pieces on the record, "Strange Animal" and "Criminal Mind", are certainly production-homages to PG, replete with AMS reverb effects. And "Walking on Air, simply sounds like a Gabriel song, albeit with Gowan's unmistakeable vocals. "Cosmetics" and "Guerrilla Soldier" are pure Levin-- the former a double-handed bass line played on stick, the latter his classic Music Man approach (the "Sledgehammer" sound). The real Gowan stuff, the "pretty" piano ballad, "Burning Torches of Hope," shows Gowan as an 80s version of Canada's Ian Thomas (the musician-brother of comedian Dave Thomas), not an unflattering comparison.
Try this record which, while dated, will reward a close listen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellence in Art-Rock 20. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like many Canadian artists, Gowan is hidden treasure waiting to be discovered by Americans.
In his home country of Canada, Gowan has consistently put out hit album after hit album. He is a consumate musician (having a degree [A.R.C.T.] in music from the University of Toronto, in piano and music theory) and his live shows are not to be missed.
He is one of this genre's top lyricists, in any country. Witness the following from "Criminal Mind" (the last song on 1985's _Strange Animal_):
"Some people struggle daily/ The struggle with their conscience/ Till the end/ I have no guilt to haunt me/ I feel no wrong intent"
Typically, Gowan's lyrics are inspired by personal experience, or news events, or through conversations with various people. The song quoted above, for example, was inspired by a conversation with a friend of his, whose occupation was a prison security guard.
