Robert Plant: Carry Fire

Read "Carry Fire" reviewed by

Some albums take a split second in order to showcase both their greatness and best qualities while others take more time and require more listening in order to reveal their treasures. While singer Robert Plant's album Carry Fire is tremendous on first listen and shows great depth and richness, it also reveals an even richer experience with other subsequent listens.

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters Fillmore Auditorium Denver October 4, 2014 Robert Plant's new album, Lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar (Nonesuch, 2014), is an atmospheric affair; music suitable for horseback riding at twilight in misty woods while on the lookout for the Headless Horseman.
