Foghat - Under the Influence, album review

Rock Pledge

A couple of years in the making and many more in their own rock-lineage gestation, this classic rock album is as generically solid as one could hope. There is a stellar Stones-esque stomper in Heart Gone Cold - certainly in the opening riff - and Dana Fuchs adds occasional husky vocal depths as on following track Honey Do List. She also contributes to a raunchy cover of I Heard it Through the Grapevine. A pledgemusic spawn, Foghat was originally 'spawned' from Savoy Brown [I nicked that birthing metaphor and re-used] and Kim Simmonds also guests. A modern resourcing/production method, but the rockgenes remain intact.


  1. I loveee it, it was well worth the wait!!!

  2. Agreed. A great album. A lot of pretenders out there, but this simply IS.
