Hip To Hoo. The album cracked the Top 20 in the U. This time around, drummer Richard Hayward from Little Feat adds some percussive texture to a mixture of world beats, unconventional melodies and rhythms, and a number of other creative and colorful musical nuances.
Some of the music sounds a little foreign and profound at first, but efforts like "Hip to Hoo" and "Kallalou" grow to be impressive, beyond-the-norm-styled numbers after a few listens. Plant 's voguish character is still ingrained throughout the tracks, and his tangents aren't so overwhelming that they throw his material in an altogether complete direction. If anything, the songs on Shaken 'N Stirred are an inspiring venture for Plant , as he manages to fulfill his slightly off-centered approach with some interesting and catchy results.
He gets great volume control and textural variation, and many wild noises in a tapestry of crazy music backing Plant's "kid in the candy store" send-ups. Plant is throwing himself into this with reckless abandon, trying as many ideas as he can think of, almost purging himself as he creates a work that has to be inspired by many of the current artists around him.
Everything is very loud and drowning in spirited percussion, as well as fantastic backing vocals courtesy of Toni Halliday. She is the perfect contrast to Plant's typical over-singing. In fact, that's the worst part of any Robert Plant album, when he seems trapped in his own persona to the point of parody. Not every song needs the "baby babys" and the sexual grunts and groans.
Halliday provides welcome and soothing beauty to these pleasantly jarring escapades. Every song is like a sweet confection that makes this pure pleasure to listen to, but my favorites are the slightly more introspective ones. If I'm right and maybe I'm not the first verse sounds like he's talking about the grief of his son's death, while the second verse may be discussing cocaine. In both cases Plant is able to "breathe again" having arrived in a healthier place.
The closer "Sixes and Sevens" is one of Plant's finest, very melancholic as he discusses making "alterations to my house of cards" to a brooding, musical sunset. The flip side is pure danceable fun like "Too Loud" where Plant is nothing but playful. There is even some character banter there in the form of a fictional record guy Plant pokes fun at. A lot of people really bash this album as it sounds so different from his previous two smash albums.
I understand the criticisms but in it is probably my favorite Plant album.Robert Plant Lyrics "Doo Doo A Do Do" Nobody can do the bop, like you do Nobody can do the burn, like you do "Shaken And Stirred" () Hip To Hoo.
