Muze PNote The aesthetic Rod Stewart had been honing over his first three solo albums--an aesthetic that combined folk, hard rock, and R&B swagger--was perfected on EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY. The album's combination of strong, original songs and plum cover versions reveal the artist's range and versatility as he simultaneously paid tribute to mentors and declared his own craft. Members of Stewart's regular group, the Faces, provide intuitive support, making nearly every track shine with passion and edge.
Muze PNote Stewart's take-no-prisoners interpretation of the Temptations' "(I Know I'm) Losing You" brought new dimensions to a Tamla/Motown classic. "Maggie May," one of the great pop anthems, is the obvious standout, but the remaining selections, such as "Mandolin Wind" and Tim Hardin's beautiful "Reason To Believe," have a similar sense of purpose. Through it all, of course, is Stewart's soulful, beautifully textured singing, which reaches its pinnacle on these performances, ensuring the artist's standing as one of rock's all-time greatest vocalists. If you buy only one Rod Stewart album, EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY should be it.

Artist Overview

Rod Stewart first garnered attention as the vocalist in the Jeff Beck Group in the late '60s. He went on to sing for raucous barroom rockers the Faces and started a simultaneous solo career that eventually eclipsed that of his band. Moving from folk-rock through pop, disco, jazz and more, Stewart carved out a multi-decade career as a strutting, soul-influenced singer with equal amounts of talent and charisma, and piled up an astonishing number of hit singles and platinum albums. Stewart's career has seen more than one rebirth; in 1993 his acoustic Unplugged performance brought him renewed acclaim as a sensitive song interpreter. Ten years later, with the help of Clive Davis, he gained even more notoriety as a smooth crooner of orchestrated jazz standards.
