MIKE TRAMP

Cobblestone Street

(Deadline/Cleopatra)

Reviewed by : Aaron Small
Rating : 7.0

The voice of WHITE LION, MIKE TRAMP’s new solo album Cobblestone Street is an acoustic, almost folky affair. Beginning with the title track and ‘Caught In The Storm’, Tramp displays incredible songwriting and storytelling ability, enrapturing the listener first in his childhood memories of Copenhagen, Denmark, and then the story of a sailor’s lost love; truly a pair of beautiful songs. Recorded in a week, with producer/engineer Soren Andersen providing backing instrumentation such as piano, drums, and harmonica, this ten track disc is intimate, raw and heartfelt. ‘New Day’ is a little too happy-go-lucky, then ‘Ain’t The Life I Asked For’ and ‘We’ll Be Alright’ see Tramp lamenting over days gone by; kind of depressing actually. ‘Angel Or Devil’ is comparable to EXTREME’s ‘Hole Hearted’, yet ‘Find It In Your Heart’ is another sad soliloquy. Unfortunately ‘What Are You Gonna Do’ employs damn near every country and western cliché in the book: “No food in the cupboard or money in the bank, the car has two flat tires and not a drop of gas,” the misery continues with a leaky roof and broken windows. If ever a pick-me-up was needed, now is the time; but that’s not what follows. Tramp looks back on his musical career in ‘Once’ and actually questions his talent: “Did I make it or did I fake it? Was I any good or just a loser?” Somebody please prescribe this man some Prozac! Depending on the region of release, Cobblestone Street comes with different bonus tracks. In Europe it includes re-workings of ‘More To Life Than This’ and ‘92’ (originally done by Tramp’s FREAK OF NATURE), while North America gets a 2013 acoustic version of the White Lion classic ‘When The Children Cry’; a nice flashback but the original was pretty perfect and didn’t need rearranging.
