All that I am missing listening recent albums from The Rolling Stones (made in the last two decades or more) I find on Keef's solo albums, in particular on this one, "Crosseyed Heart". Raw rock'n'roll dipped in blues or country sauce, makes an impressive record of incredible 15 songs by one of the r'n'r founding fathers. 

Tunes on this album are no funky or feisty (yet there are few of those as well), they are more of a wonderful display of divine calmness and overwhelming self-assurance and inner joy. A low-key album, but just on the surface - the material is excellent. Although we are talking about rock's most famous pirate and all-liked scoundrel.

The album is definitely timeless. It could have been recorded and published at any time in this or the previous century. It so filled with Richards' influences, but shaped in such unique manner that can only carry his signature. 
Listening to "Crosseyed Heart" I wish that the Stones would finally do something similar, but it will never happen because when Richards' is in the Stones and with the Stones -  they all think big bucks and big brand and consequently big everything. At the expense of essentially higher quality albums. 

So, it is more than good that Richards' is motivated enough to do his own thing. I love the fact how he is crossing on other artists' field, evidently the ones he admires. Or at least he is not worried if he sounds a bit like them, more than Richards on his own. Saying this I must point out "Amnesia" where he is almost from top to bottom in Mark Knopfler sted. On "illuson" he was working with Norah Jones. And it is wonderful.

Gritty texts show that Keef wasn't doing it just for the sake of it, he actually wants to speak his mind whatever it is on, fun for the most part. Fifteen songs - one would wonder how come, but it passes so quickly and none of them is for waste, not by a close. Some are catchy close-to-his songs, dance tunes ("Heartstopper", "Nothing on me"), "Substantial Damage" or "Trouble" are typical Keef's funk'rock tracks and they are marevellous.

"Lover’s Plea" closes the album in the low-key manner with Keef's worn out, a bit husky voice that carries a measure of tenderness one might not expect from the Stones' guitarist.

The album is one of the best rock'n'roll albums of 2015, I can tell you this much.
