Not At His Best Here

"I saw Rory on this tour;he opened for Rush, was sensational,blew them off the stage. However, Jinx is not one of his better albums. The material has taken a turn for the worse. The opening track is an awkward attempt to keep up with 80's pop, something a blues performer of Rory's magnitude shouldn't have had to do.The rest is very basic,stripped down rock n'roll,which sounds like a good idea, but Rory was always much better than that. Doesn't sound like a lot of production went into this one either. Buy this only after you own his best 70's efforts.Still can't rate his worst efforts lower than a 3."
