Muze PNote The first solo outing from Mr. Rock & Roll himself, TALK IS CHEAP is a solid, rootsy effort with something for everyone. The opening cut, "Big Enough," mines a deep funk groove (abetted by veteran funksters Bootsy Collins and Bernie Worrell of Parliament/Funkadelic fame) and makes it clear that the set will not be pure Stones revival. While "Take It So Hard" kicks off with the clarion call of Keith Richards's signature guitar sound and echoes the vibe of Stones songs "Happy" and "Tumbling Dice," it lays claim to its own distinctive mood.
Muze PNote "I Could Have Stood You Up" hearkens back to the swinging rock & roll of the 1950s, complete with doo-wop backing vocals and honky-tonk piano, before segueing into mid-tempo, emotive tracks "Make No Mistake" and "You Don't Move Me," recalling late-'70s Dylan. Approaching the album's end, the melancholic "Locked Away" provides an antidote to the head-bobbing rhythm of "Rockawhile" and the angular closing punch of "It Means a Lot." Richards's understated vocal delivery and blues-drenched guitar lines (which manage to sound simultaneously clean, spare, and gloriously sleazy) earmark this fine collection of tunes.

Artist Overview

Best known as lead guitarist and musical mastermind of the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards's modern re-interpretation of American blues, rock & roll, and country influences, along with an unconventional guitar tuning, provided the template for countless now-classic signature riffs. Outside the Stones, with his group the X-Pensive Winos, he performed and recorded some characteristically gritty, bluesy music that highlighted exactly what he brings to the Stones' musical table. While his whiskey-etched physique would become a trademark - more than one comedian noted Richards would survive an apocalypse - it is merely a tribute to his resilience and musical legend.
