Washed up cheeseball??? Sorry, but I have to laugh at yet another person stuck in their own world and clearly unable to move out of their box and experience something new. I'm talking to you lukasevansherman...
Rod has continued to put out quality material for over 50 years. Sure, he's had hits and misses (I don't personally care for his revisiting the "American Songbook" as often as he does - but lots of fans do) and really, it's up to him what he wants to do. He's earned it. You and I don't have to like it (and he probably doesn't care if we do. Lol).
What you like is, of course, what you like and you are entitled to your opinion (I guess) but not when you become obnoxious and unflattering. So you like an artist's early output and they outgrew you. It doesn't mean you have to trash them. It's those "opinions" that, if they were to made reality, would have had the Beatles singing nothing but their early rockers forever (hmm... would that have been so bad? They were great!) but never having moved along artistically and created Rubber Soul, Sgt. Peppers or The White Album (pick one).
That's not to say you have to love everything an artist puts out or even every song on an album. Sometimes they miss or their taste is different or whatever but you can't expect anyone to stand still and create the same piece of art over and over again. Life, as they say, is change.
Pick and choose and then... move on. It's ok. You don't have to put down someone else's work. It's just not for you. Be grateful for the stuff you did like and go find something else.
Guess your mom didn't teach you... "If you can't say anything nice..." Sheesh!
Oh and... do yourself a favour... have a listen to Rod's latest, 2018's Blood Red Roses. Don't expect The Faces or Rod the Mod... It's a little bit of dance music, a little rocker or two, there's even a fun reggae for the closer. Open your mind and listen to some great music. It's still being made, it just sounds a little different. Enjoy!
It's hard not to think of Rod Stewart now as a washed up cheeseball, but he had a stellar run of solo albums in the early 70s and this is possibly his best. Features future Rolling Stone Ron Wood on guitar. Also check out his albums with the Faces.
