商品説明

Few new bands receive the kind of critical buzz that Lone Justice generated prior to the release of their first album in 1985, and one senses the band (not to mention producer Jimmy Iovine and Geffen Records) wanted to deliver something special to merit the hype. Which was not necessarily a good thing; Lone Justice is an album that tries so hard to be great that it sometimes ends up tripping over its own ambitions. The record leaves no doubt that the first edition of Lone Justice was a very good band; on the best cuts, Maria McKee's voice sounds like a force of nature, bassist Marvin Etzioni and bassist Don Heffington are a strong and imaginative rhythm section whether they were playing souped-up country shuffles or fifth-gear rock & roll, and if guitarist Ryan Hedgecock isn't quite a virtuoso, he's solid and inspired when he gets to step to the forefront. But guest keyboardist Benmont Tench and the other high-priced help (including Little Steven, Mike Campbell, and an uncredited Annie Lennox) often overwhelm the group's personality, and while McKee's songs celebrating the heart and soul of rural America are unquestionably sincere, they don't always ring true (After the Flood and Pass It On sound more like writing exercises than narratives centered around believable characters), and they also seem to inspire Iovine's most bombastic production decisions. Where Lone Justice succeeds is on straight-ahead rockers like East of Eden and Working Late, the C&W weeper Don't Toss Us Away, and the tough love gone bad number Way to Be Wicked, all of which prove that this band really did have the goods. In the wake of the 1990s alt-country movement, in which dozens of bands mined similar musical territory with more satisfying results, Lone Justice sounds like an example of too many cooks spoiling the soup; there's enough good stuff to make it worth hearing, but its hard not to wish Lone Justice had gotten the sort of sympathetic but hands-off production that allowed Wilco and the Jayhawks to do their best work. ~ Mark Deming, All Music Guide

85年発表のデビューアルバム。今も活躍する...

投稿日:2007/04/29 (日)

85年発表のデビューアルバム。今も活躍するシンガーソングライターのマリアマッキーが在籍していた伝説のバンドです。カントリーやR&Bベースのシンプルなロックンロールで彼女のパワフルで情熱的な歌声は当時かなり期待されていました。シングルのBもカッコいいけど切ないカントリー調のバラード『Don't Toss Us Away』をオススメ。アメリカンロックや初期のシェリルクロウなんか好きならハマるんじゃないかな。ちなみに映画『Streets Of Fire』収録の『Never Be You』も切ない名曲!マ

Lone Justice

The roots rock band Lone Justice was formed in Los Angeles by guitarist Ryan Hedgecock and singer Maria McKee.
