Textures and poetry--Still solid
MOjave is the most unique Concrete Blonde effort so far. The feeling is textural and emphasized the imagery of the desert as well as using the desert for source material for the songs. If you hear the title track you have experienced a desert sunset, in all its glorious colors. My personal favorite track is Snakes. Johnette takes us on a hunt in the desert night. The description and characterization of the snake is accurate. Forget any metaphors. You are there in the sand in the moonlight. Mojave is well worth a DL. One recurring theme and line is to "Shed Your Skin" A good idea for musicians. Especially when you grow to big for the old one.
