To proclaim that Lettuce avoids the usual pitfalls of contemporary funk is a left-handed compliment for sure, but it does say more than a little about the power and cohesion of Fly. In the diversity of material and arrangement, not to mention the savvy musicianship and production by which the band parlay their skills, this album is the sound of a group full of the confidence that comes with validation of their chosen style.
It’s wonderful to have a new album from Joe Walsh. He’s a true musical innovator and that by itself makes him worth hearing. His newest project has some great moments. At its best it succeeds in the same way Walsh’s work has always succeeded: sounding like nobody but himself. After all, it’s about personality.
