Not only did he brandish a muscular classic rock sound, but he was a talented songwriter, giving equal emphasis to rebellious electric barnstormers and melancholic, thoughtful folk-tinged tunes. Seger's spotlight may have faded by 2006's FACE THE PROMISE, but that doesn't mean any of his power as a singer, songwriter, and performer had diminished.Seger's gruff voice sounds as weathered and gutsy as ever, and his status as an elder statesman hasn't led him to turn down his amplifiers a single notch, as the pounding title track and "Wreck This Heart," the album's opener, prove. But one of Seger's great strengths has always been his reflective, acoustic-driven songs, and "No Matter Who You Are" and "Won't Stop" deliver on that count, demonstrating that even after all these years Seger still has his touch.

The Promise - Bob Seger
What's not to like? ....Bob's back, writing his own stuff and showing us why he's a rock legend. Have much Seger music in 8-track, LP, cassette and CD and if a new one comes out, I'll have it. First concert I ever went to was Bob Seger(1976), with Elvin Bishop, Point Blank(who?) and someone else -all that for the ticket price of $7.50 and I bought 2 Seger T-shirts for $4.00 ea.(still have one!). Life was good. As for the music...Seger still knows how to rock. I'll be looking for him riding his bike around Devil's Lake this summer....would love to ride, hear stories of the road and his music with this Michigan native. Come back anytime Bob!

Bob Seger - still the same...
If you like the classic Bob Seger and the Silver Bullett albums, chances are you'll like this one as well. Of course you'll never hear any of this on the radio, but that doesn't diminish the recognizeable sound and quality that this album contains. I was skeptical when I purchased the disc never having heard it, and was quite pleased with the music. I guess I still do like Old Time Rock 'n Roll, even if it's Still The Same...

Face The Promise - Bob Seger
We've waited 12 yrs for this and it doesn't disappoint. All tunes are normal reflections for Bob and his songwriting has even improved. His voice is as good as you would expect and priceless with the help of Patty Loveless (my favorite singer) and Kid Rock (considers Bob his mentor). I can't wait for the next one.
