ROBERT DAHLQVIST

Solo

(Despotz)

Reviewed by : David Perri
Rating : 6.0

Former THE HELLACOPTERS guitar player Robert "Strings" Dahlqvist has kept himself busy with a variety of projects since The Hellacopters' unfortunate demise in 2008, but the appropriately titled Solo acts as the first solo offering of his career. Those expecting the loud, attitude-obsessed rock-on-rock of the 'Copters will be disappointed by Solo, as this record is a breezy, low-key, and, at times, beautiful LP whose priorities are seemingly contemplative drives on the highway or the reflective moments that just don't seem to happen enough anymore. And while Solo possesses its own charm and is obviously the product of a lifetime of passion for music, the album lacks immediacy and memorability, a real drawback in an era of now!-now!-now! gratification. Is Solo an album outside of its surrounding context, the unfortunate victim of a society on overdrive, all the time? Maybe. But I never felt any sort of wandering eyes or strained attention spans while 'The Devil Stole The Beat From The Lord', 'Truckloads Of Nothin'', 'Pride' or 'Murder On My Mind' respected the rock as much as they did back when The Hellacopters were still in mid-air.
