3.0 goodRobbit | June 12th 19

SHAKEN 'N STIRRED is easily the strangest solo record that Robert Plant has made to date. It's a highly experimental record which
is oddly fuses quirky New Wave sounding samples with dance-rock grooves that wobble and shift a bit too much to be played in any
dance clubs. It really is a strange patchwork of influences that?s difficult to describe, especially given how oddly arranged the
songs are. It was almost as if they were trying to create their own genre here, while also tampering with conventional song
structures.

After repeated listens, the odder songs become a bit of a laugh and also strangely appealing in a guilty pleasure sort of way.
It's hardly Plant's best work, but I respect his fearlessness in wanting to craft something quite unique. It is a bit of a mixed
bag with some of these experiments working better than others. I'm no fan of this style of glossy, very 80s sounding production
and do general prefer more guitar oriented material. SHAKEN 'N STIRRED is a rather curious album and strange chapter for sure.
