Let Your Hair Down review

Long way of Steve Miller Band

Steve Miller’s first group was formed in the period of prosperity of rock and genres close to the rock – in the middle of the sixties. Steve Miller Band is from San-Francisco, and that is not a secret to anyone that Calofornia became a home for numerous legendary bands. Nowadays it can be stated that Steve Miller Band is definitely one of them. In the seventies Steve Miller Band managed to release a great number of hits that got the well-deserved right to be called the classics of rock. Another remarkable fact is that during the whole professional career Californians Steve Miller Band have been regularly issuing truly powerful records. You will hardly find any average or dull albums or compositions in the band’s discography. The rockers have always been sincere, and that quality is so much enjoyed by their listeners. So, Steve Miller Band prepared the fresh material for us – the long play titled Let Your Hair Down saw the light in 2011.

Classic rock of Let Your Hair Down

Snatch It Back And Hold It, the opening act of the album, will be remembered by many listeners due to an interesting part of the drums – the rhythmic pattern fits the rich bass part perfectly. The next composition I Got Love If You Want It is not less original and it gives to understand that Steve still deals with roles of a guitarist and a singer dexterously. Miller’s manner of playing can be easily identified, and as soon as Steve Miller Band’s musicians understand their frontman perfectly well, the arrangements turned out to be really harmonious, without any extra needless details. Every single track sounds sharp, like a worked out mechanism. Luckily, the techniques’ business ends right at this very point, followed by emotions and energy. Good old rock’n’roll, rhythm and blues… All these genres sound fresh nowadays, performed by the masters of Steve Miller Band: blues-rock Can't Be Satisfied, vivacious rock’n’roll The Walk will not give you a chance to be bored. By the way, the musicians pleased their listeners by four bonus compositions, which is of course great. The album is closed by Driftin's Blues, a measured blues song, created in the best traditions of that old genre, which became a founder of a good half of all the modern music.

Old is the new new

New styles appear and disappear, but there are some cornerstones in the world of music. Something that remains unchanged for many years, something that does not lose its popularity, in spite of all the new tendencies. Steve Miller Band, inspired by the blues, started their career back in faraway sixties. And nowadays, after so many years, the musicians still have strength and desire to record and play rock’n’roll. Of course this is not a surprise that they totally succeed: Pretty Thing, Close Together and other songs make a listener beating out the time. Yes, sure, the musicians of Steve Miller Band did not invent anything revolutionary new on the long play Let Your Hair Down. Actually nobody expected them to do that, and was it necessary anyways? The rockers have their unique style, which is so respected and loved by music connoisseurs, and that style is presented on Let Your Hair Down in a full volume. The album’s quality is simply unquestionable (the musicians’ level in particular and the band’s level in general can be easily taken as a proof of the long play’s success), so the pleasure from listening is guaranteed.
