International Superstar...but why not here?

(4 out of 5 stars)
"David Broza has been an international superstar in both Europe and his native Israel since the 1980's, even touring with Sting at one point. That was about the time "Time Of Trains" was issued in America. While Broza often writes his own material, for this CD, only the lovely "Lullabies" is an original composition. The rest of the material is seemingly cherry picked to appeal to the same folks that might have caught him on that tour with Sting.
Both the title track and the Cd's radio single, "Somebody Make Me Laugh," are strong choices for Broza. He sings with a gruff convictions (he's been compared to Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen...I think he's closer to Billy Joel) and the excellent guitar playing make this a wonderful CD. The drawback is that he is fluent in Hebrew and Spanish, and his other albums frequently mix the songs up to a magical effect. The song that comes closest to his splendid mix of multicultural musical artistry is "Blood For Blood." So while I heartily recommend "Time Of Trains," I would go as far as to recommend his best of collection over this. Seeing as I found this used for less than a tenner, I am comfortable with saying GET BOTH."
