I’m aware that John Waite’s career has been impressive with millions of albums sold with The Baby’s, Bad English and just as John Waite, but I have never been a fan of Blues Rock or Pop Rock, and that wont change with “Downtown Journey of a Heart”!  

The new album consists of re-recordings of John’s greatest hits such as “The Hard Way”, “Missing You” and “Downtown” and two new tracks “St. Patrick’s Day” and a version of Bob Dylan’s “Highway 61” - and damn it is boring.  

There is 12 tracks on “Downtown Journey of a Heart” and in my opinion that is 12 tracks too much, I just want a singer, a guitarist, a bass player and a drummer not harmonicas, violins, pianos or cellos.  

Ok there is one positive thing about this album, now I never have to listen to it again!  

Recommended tracks: NO.
