Wow, gotta give Seger credit for completely reinventing his style here. Mongrel was balls-to-the-wall hard rock, and this is an introspective singer-songwriter album featuring just acoustic guitar and occasional piano. It's consistently "pretty good" throughout, bookended by its two strongest songs. The opener is hopeful, almost defiantly so, and the more lyrically-confident closer is a rearrangement of the opener, complete with coda. Very nice. Nice vibe, no major revelations, but an interesting glimpse into Seger clearing his head from the almost-breakthrough success of the System. "Railroad Days" is the best song here and anticipates "Night Moves" in arrangement and vibe; "Song For Him" is a good devotional song that shows what a rough time Bob must have been going through. "Maybe Today", likewise, has an almost defiant optimism and a desperate vocal. A unique album for Seger, and a grower.
He also released a non-album single in 1971, "Lookin' Back". It's a great song, rocking, edgy and defiant, and is a good "yang" (both musically and thematically) to the acoustic, raw, hurting-but-hopeful "yin" here. The common denominator is Seger's unwavering, no-bullshit, defiant hope in the face of adversity.
The same advice for Noah applies to this album and his early singles: it's well worth the trouble of browsing through music blogs and torrent sites to find the mp3's, because these have never been issued on CD and probably never will be.
