Review: Coverdale•Page – Pride and Joy (Rock)

This review covers the rock track Coverdale•Page – Pride and Joy.

This track was released in 1993 on a self-titled album.

The track starts with some guitar strumming. The vocals then come in for a verse. After that, some lead guitars and a drum kit come in. Some vocals come in followed by another instrumental section.

After another round of vocals, the instrumental section that comes in contains a harmonica for two parts of it. When this instrumental section ends, the guitar strumming returns. The vocals also make a return. This ends with an instrumental section which also ends the track.

A good aspect of this track is the fact that the lead guitars are actually pretty good. Another positive is the fact that the harmonica segments also sound pretty good.

A pitfall in this track is that the vocals are barely comprehensible. I know the vocals are singing in English, but almost everything is lost. I cal almost hear a structure, but because the vocals are so incomprehensible, I can’t even follow a proper structure here.

Overall, this track is a bit of a swing and a miss for me. The guitars aren’t that bad in my view. Even the harmonica is a pretty decent element overall. Unfortunately, the vocals are so drowned out and slurred, it’s hard to get very many words out of this. As such, the track has hardly any meaning to me. Even worse is the fact that the basic structure of the track is hard to even pick up because the vocals are so incomprehensible. So, while there are positives in this track, there are a lot of critical pitfalls. A track that is passable, but otherwise, there’s not much to listen to in my view.

Score
6/10
