ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The new Rob Knox CD is perfect for your next road trip!
(by John Emms - Timmins Daily Press)

Rob Knox has created an extremely engaging laid back gem with his latest opus entitled This Should Fix It.
In fact, I recommend this CD for your next drive on the open road or for a quiet Sunday morning Tim's coffee.
This album sticks like glue.
As long as I have known Timmins singer-songwriter Rob Knox he has always been interested in the folk/roots musical tradtion. At the same time Knox has stayed clear of the political message side of that syle of music often associated with Bruce Cockburn or Dave Matthews.
Knox is best known to local audiences as the lead vocalist and songwriter with Compass Rose
Today Knox retains the name of the group and works with new bandmembers but it is not in the cover band incarnation that played local clubs five or six years before
Instead, Knox's latest solo recording focuses squarely on easy going tracks with personal references to his own life and songs featuring local heritage.
Opening with the gorgeous feel of the title track and Letter To A Friend the latter, written with Dave Carroll, Knox establishes an open soundscape that benefits from the clear uncluttered mix of engineer George Witham.
On this CD, the term less is more is key.
Elsewhere the album's most significant songs could be Bound By Some Religion, an all-encompassing song of redemption through lost love and In Another Time, a song that gently contemplates one's life from the inside out.
In fact, In Another Time sounds like it could a track primed to be covered by a major artist.
On I'll Get It Right, Knox introduces different tempo changes to the vibe while he contemplates life stating "Everything I owned was in the back of an old Dodge pick up truck."
Significantly on the track Mussolini's Men (the Big Dome) Knox recalls Bruce Cockburn's lyrical eye for detail and guitar tuning while merging local culture and heritage.
It's a fine moment.
There are a number of guests on the album who contribute vital roles. These include guitarist Darryl Dukeshire, sax man Dan Chabot, drummer Chris Didone, upright bassist John Henning, and Chantal Delorme on backing vocals, while Tom and Karyn Luke contribute pipes and some snare drum work.
