MUSIC REVIEWS

Ricky Warwick-Love Many Trust Few (Sanctuary)

Irish singer Ricky Warwick spent most of the last two decades with New Model Army and Brit metal band The Almighty.  After the Almighty broke up in 2001, Warwick has rediscovered his singer-songwriter roots. 

Love Many Trust Few was co-produced by Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, though musically the CD has little in common with that band.  (Elliott also helmed Warwick's previous solo album, Tattoos and Alibis, in 2003.) 

In fact, the album has a much different feel than you would expect from Warwick's background.  He may have come up in the business listening to the Clash, Motorhead and the Ramones, however Love Many Trust Few gives you the feeling that he had quite a few albums by the likes of Steve Earle, Jackson Browne, Rodney Crowell and John Mellencamp.

He works up a lather in the stomping rockers "Anybody Wanna Waste Some Time" and "Johnny and Elvis," and yet he is not afraid to do a sweet acoustic ballad like "New Neighbors, Old Fences" and the heartbroken love song "Come Back To Me."  The song "Guilty" has a roots rock-vibe, undoubtedly stemming from the plucked banjo line unobtrusively anchoring the track.  "Cold September" could become a staple on AAA radio.  "Ain't Comin' Round" is as close to good old-fashioned rockabilly as you're going to get for the new millennium. 

With musical assists by Elliott, Ian Hunter and Vivian Campbell, the album sounds great.  Love Many Trust Few is a surprise coming from the tattooed former metalhead -- but it's a good surprise.  (5/05)
