Robert Plant – Shaken ‘N’ Stirred (1985)
Shaken ‘N’ Stirred? More like Crash ‘N’ Burn. Plant’s strategy in the 80’s (experimental jazz-pop) is so opposed to what he accomplished with Led Zeppelin in the 70’s that I’m surprised he ever had any success. Well, “Shaken ‘N’ Stirred” brings the singer back down to earth after his first two semi-OK (and successful) solo albums. It’s no surprise that he took three years off following this stinker, went back closer to his blues-rock roots and released his best solo offering in “Now And Zen.” [3.5/5.0] Ok
