Willie Nile - The Innocent Ones
There is some really great rock music on this album. Willie Nile tackles some of the realities of the past couple of years and there isn't always a happy ending.
“This album,” he says, “includes a number of songs dedicated to the downtrodden, the forgotten, the outcasts, the hopeless — the innocent ones. It deals with some heavy issues here and there, but at the same time I think it’s an upbeat, feel-good record. I wanted it to be light on its feet and fun to listen to, and it’s all that.”
"Singin' Bell", "The Innocent Ones" and "Rich and Broken" are among his best. Folks this is a true believer in the power of rock & roll. Check this one out and grab Streets of New York while you are at it. You won't be disappointed. No question this gets the OldRockr1 Seal of Approval.
