Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ROBERT FORSTER

The Evangelist

2008-06-13

Previously of Brisbane band, The Go-Betweens, Robert Forster has released his first album in eleven years. This album features nice instrumentation from fellow Go-Betweens Adele and Glenn on bass and drums, as well as occasional mandolin, harmonica, keys, and other strings. Some of these songs were co-written by Robert's writing partner of 30 years, Grant McLennan, shortly before he passed away. This album plays as a remembrance of him. Two of the best songs on the album were co-penned by Grant. One being the sixth track, "Let Your Light In, Babe", which has some nice mandolin in it. The other, being the ninth track, "It Ain't Easy", which rocks a bit in an Old 97's kind of way. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth
