Riding the wave of renewed artistic vitality that came with his collaboration with Alison Krauss on Raising Sand, Robert Plant returns with a solid solo album that's named after the band he led before he joined Led Zeppelin. Just as Led Zeppelin's III brought the band's folk interests to the surface, Band Of Joy is a clear moment of Plant playing the music he dearly loves. Los Lobos' "Angel Dance" is sent into the U.K.'s Black Country. Richard Thompson's "House Of Cards" is given an elegant Thompson-like treatment. "Silver Rider" and "Monkey" from Minnesota slo-core veterans Low are given a sweet, majestic interpretation. Townes Van Zandt's "Harm's Swift Way" was the last song he ever finished writing and Plant, with Patty Griffin harmonizing, brings its wondrous sorrow to a heart-stirring finale. Buddy Miller's co-production is subtle and unobtrusive, catering to the many styles featured here. While much has been made of Plant's vocal power, his vocal timing and phrasing are every bit as important.

Love the 3-sided motif

I love both the music and the recording. I especially like the idea of filling 3 sides of vinyl rather than spreading out the songs over 4 shorter sides. Also, great graphics! This album, for me, is the total package - why I like the vinyl experience.

I'll be honest, I wasn't too excited about this album but tried to go in with an open mind. This record is the reason why we get so excited about vinyl. It sounds amazing. You can feel the passion that Plant has for these songs come out of the recordings. I have the CD version and it is like listening to 2 different versions. Great album and a "demo" worthy sounding recording. I like it.

Mr Capes, why review a record that is a month from being released?

Bought this on CD. Not sure what I expected but it wasn't quite 'there'. So, emboldened by the 'Raising Sand' experience I stumped up for the vinyl (it covers three sides btw.) When I played it for the first time it was like being hit by a train - but in a good way! Plant's vocals and the eponymous band really are an unstoppable force. The only fault is the empty fourth side - I didn't want it to stop. Maybe Stourbridge's favourite son will give us a second helping this time. Here's hoping........
