  • Street Songs of Love, Alejandro Escovedo's follow-up to 2008's universally acclaimed Real Animal, marks a return of sorts and simultaneously begins an entirely new chapter in his long artistic career. Escovedo re-teamed with producer Tony Visconti, who helmed Real Animal's sessions. But there is also a first here. While Escovedo's live shows have been full of rock & roll moments, his albums are best-known for his poetic ballads with a few rockers carefully layered in. Street Songs of Love changes that up: this is a recording of straight-up, tough rockers with a crack band and backing chorus that weaves a few ballads into the mix. It's a startling new twist that should excite longtime fans and make the uninitiated sit up and take notice. The album was mixed by Bob Clearmountain and contains guest performances by Bruce Springsteen on "Faith," and mentor/friend Ian Hunter on "Down in the Bowery."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.111) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e's making some of the fiercest music of his career. His latest evokes Eighties heartland rock..."

Spin - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The wonderful STREET SONGS OF LOVE brightens slightly without losing intensity on hopeful anthem 'Anchor,' lusty stumper 'Silver Cloud,' and the spooky 'Tula'..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.76) - "Hints of glam and punk inform the rootsy proceedings, giving these alternately gritty and lyrical songs a satisfying glow." -- Grade: A-

Mojo (Publisher) (p.97) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "At its best, the record soars....Witness `Tender Heart,' the kind of anthem at which Alejandro excels."

Paste (magazine) - "As the twang of his earlier solo work slides into loose, greasy soul, the 59-year-old sounds like nothing less than a fountain of youth."

Uncut (magazine) (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t remains very much a personal Escovedo project, a meditation not only on the myriad forms of love but also a tribute to both family and departed friends."
