Glenn Hughes: Resonate Review

On November 4th, Glenn Hughes released his first solo album in eight years with Resonate. In recent years, Hughes has made returning to rock a focus with groups like Black Country Communion and California Breed. Well, that’s no different on Resonate as Hughes rocks out and rocks hard.

The album begins with “Heavy,” an appropriate title, which really sets the tone. The hard rocking continues with “My Town” and this track really has a chorus that sticks with the listener. “Let It Shine” is another standout track, which is followed by “Steady,” a song Hughes originally wrote for California Breed, but wasn’t finished. “God Of Money” is another track that sounds huge. Hughes flat out brings it and his vocals really shine. Resonate stays in the rock direction until “Landmines,” which is a funky tune that would fit right in on Hughes’ previous solo record First Underground Nuclear Kitchen. The album wraps up with “Long Time Gone,” which strips things down in the beginning with just Glenn and his guitar until a minute in Lachey Doley joins in on the hammond organ and the pace soon picks up after.

Resonate is another terrific record album from Glenn Hughes. He’s 65 years old and still belts like he’s 25 while making music that remains fresh as ever. The fact Hughes continues to be as prolific as he’s been is something we can all appreciate. Lucky for us, we won’t have to wait long for more music as Hughes and Black Country Communion will be releasing its highly anticipated fourth album in May.
