Rock's greatest interpretive singer wrote 11 of the 12 songs on his first album of original material in nearly 20 years. It's a companion of sorts to Stewart's endearing autobiography from last year; there's a song about his early days trying to make it as a singer ("Can't Stop Me Now"), one about divorce ("It's Over") and one about his bohemian younger days ("Brighton Beach"), and the music is usually either "Maggie May" sweet or spandex-slappingly loose. The songwriting is sometimes clunky or kind of silly (see "Sexual Religion"), but there's a lighthearted warmth on nearly every song. Rod's never been a deep guy, but he's always been a bro.
