POWER OF POP MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW: WILLIE NILE – WORLD WAR WILLIE

ALBUM REVIEW: WILLIE NILE – WORLD WAR WILLIE

Willie_Nile 3

Background
A classic rock ’n’ roll devotee who is a little under the radar outside his native New York. A latecomer to the recording game, he released his debut LP at 32 years old in 1980. World War Wille is Nile’s tenth studio album since.

Strengths
Nile continues to demonstrate the vibrancy and relevance of rock ’n’ roll even at 68 years old! Though he never strays too far from the ‘formula’, Nile manages to keep the music fresh and visceral with outstanding tunes, tight musicianship and an archetypical rebel attitude.

Highlights
“Forever Wild”, “Grandpa Rocks”, “World War Willie”, “Hell Yeah”.

Sounds Like
Bruce Springsteen, Graham Parker, The Clash, Bob Dylan.

Bottom Line
Undiluted rock ’n’ roll with a punk drive that will please all rockers hankering for a return to that special epoch (late 70s/early 80s) that turned the music scene upside down in the wake of the original punk explosion.
