Barney Bentall And The Legendary Hearts – Ain’t Life Strange

The third album from this excellent band is filled with (gasp!) more excellent songs. Imagine that!

You know, I read on Allmusic that they found half of the tracks here to be throw-away filler, that it needed outside help with song selection. Haha go home, Allmusic, you’re drunk. To each their own, I know, so they can ignore it while I listen and enjoy the excellent songwriting and execution on these tracks. That awesome feel is still here, in full.

A couple tunes that you might know already would be Livin’ In The 90s, and probably Doin’ Fine, too. And hey, Bruce “Distortion Is My Friend” (it’s how he’s listed in the liner notes, folks) Cockburn played the guitar solo on Doin’ Fine, and Jim Cuddy sang background vocals on You Can’t Fix (What Ain’t Broken), as if you needed more enticement to try this out!

I had a bit more of a time finding songs from this album on the Tubes Of You, a couple of videos are homemade jobs, but hey. Try it! Then go buy it!

      I don’t go there often (and I’m unlikely to start after this) but they were the only ones that even had anything out there about this one. Which is a shame, ‘cos it’s a great album!
