Colin Hay - "Fierce Mercy" music album review

Music Album Review: Colin Hay - "Fierce Mercy" (8/10)

There’s been a lot of water under the bridge since Colin Hay's heyday as frontman of Aussie ‘80s MTV pioneers Men at Work. And with this, his 13th album as a solo artist, the artist delivers his most honest and confessional release to date. He teams with some of the finest musicians in Los Angeles and Nashville to create a solid baker’s dozen of introspective and lyrically clever tracks. Highlights include the driving Americana-flavored “Come Tumblin’ Down,” the world beat/hip-hop hybrid “I’m Walking Here” and the elegy to his long lost mother “She Was the Love of Mine.”
