#Ad Rod Stewart is back with Time (Album Review)

Disclaimer - I participated in this campaign for One2One Network. I received a free copy of the CD to write this review. By posting, I'm eligible for incentives. All opinions & experiences are my own.

As a child of the 80's and 90's, I grew up listening to Rod Stewart on the radio. I am sure we all have our favorite song he sang. I mean, he has been writing and singing for so long it is hard not to have a favorite. I could easily sing along to Maggie May (1971), or Forever Young (1988), but All For Love, written for the movie The Three Musketeers, was one I remember playing over and over in my room.

Yes, it has been 4 decades of music and Rod Stewart is still going strong. Yes, same hair, same tight pants. Time is his first release with new material in almost 20 years. Released earlier this month, 11 out of the 12 tracks were written and produced by him.
"Suddenly ideas for lyrics were piling up in my head," he says. "Next thing I knew, I had a song called 'It's Over' about divorce and separation. And now I was getting up in the middle of the night and scrambling for a pen to write things down, which has never happened to me. I finished seven or eight songs very quickly and I still wasn't done, and it became apparent that I would eventually have a whole album of material to record."

My favorite song off the new album was definitely She Makes Me Happy. Upbeat and fun, it is a great reminder of how good falling in love feels.

Here is the complete list of album tracks:
1. She Makes Me Happy
2. Can’t Stop Me Now
3. It’s Over
4. Brighton Beach
5. Beautiful Morning
6. Live The Life
7. Finest Woman
8. Time
9. Picture In A Frame
