Plant’s Dreamland

It had been nine years since Robert Plant released a solo album and Dreamland sent out mixed signals. Musically, it was a blues-and-folk-based album that carried on from the folk influences of 1993’s Fate Of Nations. The fact that it was a covers album, however (Plant has two co-author credits), suggested that the old rock god had run out of ideas. Thankfully, listening to it proved otherwise. Galvanized by a new band, The Strange Sensation, Plant was able to revitalize himself by revisiting the sort of songs that had influenced his past (something Bob Dylan himself had done around the same time that Plant was releasing Fate Of Nations). With the young Strange Sensation band behind him Plant reconnected with his musical roots in a way unlike he had done before in his solo career. In Dreamland he recorded an invigorating album that belied its creator’s 54 years of age.
