Frontiers (2005)

Hot on the heels of the recent excellent live album Glenn Hughes is back with another studio album. Red Hot Chilli pepper’s drummer Chad Smith again guests as he did on the live album along with longtime guitarist JJ Marsh and keys player Ed Roth. Former Janes Addiction/RHCP guitarist Dave Navarro also appears on two tracks.

This album sees the funk groove turned up again and even the titles give a clue like the heavy funk of ‘Soul Mover’. ‘High Road’ with its fuzz guitar and vibe could easily be a Prince penned track, whilst ‘Orion’ has some weird and wonderful sounds in the mid-section. ‘Dark Star’ drags slightly but the rocking ‘Miss Little Insane’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Bleed’ keep the standard high.

Glenn Hughes has finally hit a rich vein of form and long may it continue. He has melded his love of funk with the hard rock so beloved of his fan base to create a cracking release and a ‘must have’ for his fans. Hopefully the RHCP connection will open up Glenn Hughes and his music to a whole new audience.
