Rod Stewart, Time

I was recently given a free copy of Rod Stewart's new album to review. Time, Rod's first album in almost twenty years, was released on May 7. The CD has twelve tracks, eleven of which Rod wrote himself. When I think of Rod Stewart, I think of classic songs like Do Ya Think I'm Sexy, Maggie May and Forever Young. After twenty-seven studio albums, hundreds of millions of records sold and countless awards, he's back with a great mix of songs once again.

The entire CD is great, but I do have one favorite. I'm such a sucker for a sappy love song. She Makes Me Happy is super sweet and super catchy. After two listens, I was singing along with the windows down.

She makes me happy, can you understand
She makes me happy, I'm a reborn man
She shows me loving is a wonderful thing
She makes me happy, I wanna sing, sing, sing

I think what I enjoy most about this CD is that I can relate to all the songs. The song lyrics include separation, divorce, new love, and being a parent. Rod's sexy voice doesn't hurt either.

You can buy a copy of Rod Stewart's Time on Amazon for $11.99. Rod kicks off his "Live The Life" tour in Europe on June 1. The North American leg, featuring Steve Winwood, begins October 17. You can buy tickets here.

I didn't know he's had that many albums! "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" and hair is what comes to mind when I think about him. Although, I did stream his Christmas album and kinda loved it.
