Let me be blunt and not mix words, or challenge anything Mr. Richards has accomplished in life as I shake my head with disbelief, thinking that with Crosseyed Heart, I’ve heard all of this before, and better I might add, by Willy DeVille for one [especially with the song “Robbed Blind”], and by many others. Most of these songs seem to be little more than mere sketches, impressions of something Kef woke up and found on his still running tape recorder. [See the history of the song “Satisfaction” to understand my last line.]

People are gonna try to tell you that he’s conjuring the sound of the Mississippi Delta, but that’s not true, he’s also not conjuring long lost reggae classics, nor does he come close to actual blues’ masters such as John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf, or Muddy Waters. This collection of songs are miked so close that they sound fragile and weak, lacking substance, determination, spontaneity, or even a soul. What he does come off as, is a bit creepy, with tracks that sound as if they were taken directly from forgotten Chess Records B-Sides, and cutting room floor left overs. One person went so far as to say, “That Keith Richards keeps discovering nuance within those original texts is a testament to his seemingly infinite muse.” Really? I hear no nuance, nor do I feel that I’ve been presented with infinite muse.

Please ... I’m not standing against The Rolling Stones here, though to my way of thinking, even they have not produced anything of substance in over 40 years. I’m talking Keith Richards here, an artist who’s part of a machine, and without that machine he’s just an old man with half rate lyrics, going through some motions that lead us, and him, nowhere. Yes, I hear you, you’re saying that Crosseyed Heart is raw and dynamic, and you know what [?], if that’s what you wish to believe, then by all means, you’re free to hear it that way, but you won’t see me looking up into the city lights thinking that he’s brought something new to rock n’ roll. What Keith is good for, is creating substantial iconic rock images, pictures of a man far past his prime in eyeliner and an ever-lit cigarette, looking directly into the center lens of the camera.

Rolling Stone Magazine said, “ ... his sublime grooves sprout melodic blooms and thorny leads. It’s proof that, at the core, the dude’s an army of one.” But not me, by the time I was half way through this album I was hearing the snoring at the end of the song “In Another Land,” from Their Satanic Majesties Request.
