Simple Minds - Direction of the Heart - 10/21/22

They're back! After the great "Big Music" in 2014, they released the terrible (IMO) "Walk Between Worlds" in 2018. But they have rebounded spectacularly with "Directions of the Heart". This is classic Simple Minds.

It sounds like pretty much every Simple Minds album for the last 20 years or so. Competent, well put together songs that I have no interest in hearing more than once. A sterile production that sounds like it was done on a computer, neutered of any edge. This band has been making the same album for years now. I would love to see what they could do if they would get a good band together with everyone contributing to the writing. And get a producer in who would kick them in the ass and drive them to do something interesting. I was hoping the 5x5 tour a few years back would have sparked something in them, but it was back to the same old stuff after that was over.

Just saw this recent pic of Jim Kerr, and it's not that he looks bad (he looks fine for his age), it's just that I hadn't seen a pic/video of him at all since their don't you forget about me video, and then almost 40 year later, BAM!

Not the best picture above. Looks somewhat better in this interview.
