CD Reviews

Still Dion after all these years!
Keith Elliott | 08/26/2000

"I just got this CD a few days ago and haven't stopped listening yet. There are so many really good songs here ... If I should Fall Behind is classic a capella, The 90's is the 60's is awesome, I Knew the Bride really rocks as does Street Corner Saint. The entire CD is great listening. Long live Dion ... the "King of cool"."
...but I think the last track is best of all

"Worth buying for What's That Sound on its own. Everyone I've played this track to has been absolutely knocked out by it. Even my kids who are 14 and 12, who believe that music didn;t really start before the Spice Girls, sing along to it. It's a 6-minute run through the history of rock, but a lot more than that. Some lovely touches: listen to when he sings "One driving force that woke on Monterey" or "and Eric split the night with his guitar". I also loved If I Should Fall Behind and the rest aint bad. But just listen to that last track. Blows your brains."
A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Adds To His Legacy

"Dion DiMucci is something of a rock and roll chameleon -- he's gone from doo-wop to the blues, from fronting a street-corner combo to solo folk performer. He's returned from his gospel phase to continue the rock survivor image he developed in "Yo Frankie." The cd begins inventively with an acapella take on Springsteen's "If I Should Fall Behind," a nice throwback to past glories. The rest of the album moves to a more traditional rock sound, the highlights being an impressively hard-edged and biting "The 90s are the 60s" and a nostalgic "What's That Sound?" The guy's pipes are still there -- if anything, he sounds more soulful than in the old days. A leisurely romp through "I Knew The Bride" fits the man well. This album may not be the most publicized of Dion's career, but his world-weary take on Dylan's "One Too Many Mornings" is one of his best tracks ever. Don't miss a master still working at his craft some four decades after he first hit with his buddies from Belmont Avenue in the Bronx -- the cat's still got it!"
