Rod Stewart is timeless.  A name that many know, with a distinct sound that is easily recognizable.  When I first put in the CD, as soon as the music started a smile came to my face.  Yes, this was definitely the sound I remembered from him.  And then came the voice...again, yes, certainly this was the voice I remembered from all those years ago.

While listening to the different tracks, there were several things that came to mind. While I thoroughly enjoyed the sound of the cd, I was a bit disappointed that so many of the lyrics revolved around sex. While I get that the album has a love theme to it, I could have done without the lyrics.  This is for sure not a cd I will be playing in the family van, with lyrics not intended for children.

Now, is that to say there weren't any songs I enjoyed?  No,  there were for sure some catchy tunes included!  I found myself tapping along to several, not analyzing or thinking about the lyrics.  One could easily get lost just listening to Stewart's voice!

If I were to turn the vocals down, and rate it as an instrumental cd, I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.  But, seeing as how I can not do that, overall I would give this 2.5 stars, which earns it a rating of "average".

**I was given this in exchange for my honest review**
