Why the low ratings???

"I find it hard to imagine that some reviewers would give ROCKIN' MY LIFE AWAY only 1 star. This album rocks. George and the band show off their top notch musicianship and this is an album for music fans that want great music with no frills. George and the Destroyers dont need any gimmicks, the music speaks for itself. The songs that I think the listener will enjoy are GET BACK INTO ROCKIN', TROUBLE EVERYDAY, NIGHT RIDER, THE USUAL, ROCKIN' MY LIFE AWAY, JAIL BAIT and LIVING WITH THE SHADES PULLED DOWN. I think that SHADES is a true gem off this album. It is a classic country song that the band pulls off well. MANHATTAN SLIDE is a classic instrumental that the shows off with great musical interaction on the song. This is a great album for music fans, and I think those reviewers that gave it low ratings should give it a listen once again."
George & the boys keep rockin'

"This recording features many sides of George, including the classic sound of his guitar on "Rockin' my life away," and "Get back into rockin'." He mixes in some blues with "The Usual" which happens to be my favorite track. His trademark simple lyrics are caught on "Rock and Roll Man," but you can't stop tapping your feet or pounding on the steering wheel. This album was not well received, but is a must for all Thorogood fans - new and old. The sax and keyboard work by Hank Carter is phenominal. A must buy."
A TRULY UNDERRATED ALBUM!

"The fact that Thorogood is still tryin' new things and not doing a zillionth variation of "Bad To The Bone" is great. This album smokes! It's got George doin' a Frank Zappa track for cryin' out loud! How cool is that! The best track is the amazing cover of "The Usual". If George's audience wants to smack his wrist everytime the man tries to expand, then to hell with 'em! I've been a true-blue Thorogood maniac since I was 15 years old, and "Rockin' My Life Away" shows my man in fine form. Rock on amigo!"
