Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

WILLIE NILE

HOUSE OF A THOUSAND GUITARS

2009-07-06

There are certain CD’s that you can leave in your player for months on end that you never grow tired of, Willie Nile’s new release is one of them. After 25 years since his first recording this is undeniably his finest disc to date. The CD begins with the rocking title track where Willie playing homage to some of his favorite musicians including Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Hank Williams, John Lee Hooker, Dylan and others. The Track “Run” has a real Tom Petty sound to it while the “Doomsday Dance” plain out rocks with lyrics that will catch you doing the twist underneath a mushroom cloud. “Now That the War is Over” unleashes that horrors that war plays on the minds and bodies of our veterans’ after they return home. Willie does show his more sensitive side on the tracks “Her Love Falls Like Rain” and “Touch Me”. There is nothing short of a dozen gems on this release and everyone deserves to be heard.
