ROBERT PLANT

Carry Fire(None­such)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

The 11th stu­dio al­bum from the Led Zep­pelin founder could hardly be less like his old band, but then Plant’s re­cent al­bums — in­clud­ing the bril­liant Rais­ing Sand with Ali­son Krauss — demon­strate a su­perb fac­ulty with folk, roots and Ap­palachian mu­sic. His fine back­ing band, the Sen­sa­tional Space Shifters, are on hand once more, and the Pre­tenders’ Chrissie Hyde lends her vo­cals to one of the stand­outs, the evoca­tive ‘Blue­birds Over the Moun­tain’.
