Dave Stewart - Greetings From The Gutter

En Greetings From The Gutter, Dave Stewart, la mitad de Eurythmics, mezcla buenas cantidades de rock, pop, funk y rhythm & blues. Está acompañado por tres integrantes de Parliament/Funkadelic (Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell y Jerome 'Big Foot' Brailey), un conjunto de voces femeninas que incluye a Lady Miss Kier, Nona Hendryx y Siobhan Fahey, a los que se agregan notables invitados, entre otros, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson y Dave Sanborn. Las canciones son muy lindas, se distinguen la groovy Heart of Stone, la irónica Tragedy Street, y las baladas Chelsea Lovers y St. Valentine's Day, y contienen inteligentes guitarras a cargo de Stewart, simples y efectivos arreglos de cuerdas, y contagiosos coros. Beautiful. ****1/2
