Sound — 10
Retains enough original elements and airy, building soundscapes to enthrall thouse who enjoyed "Dreamland's" expansive feel and pleases still those who craved more blues elements from plant's Zeppelin days. "Mighty Rearranger" has a very organic feel to it with songs often appearing as if they are demos. Elements of Middle Eastern music as well as North African and Mediterranean are prevalent and there is, to a small extent, techno (a very small extent). Highlights: "Another Tribe," "Tin Pin Valley," "The Enchanter," "Dancing In Heaven."
Lyrics — 8
Often deep, alwayes composed, always interesting, well put, never ever pompous. Plant is indeed a rare genius in a musical world dominated by mostly alterna-rock idiots who can only make depressing songs(Breaking Benjamin, Korn, and all bands like Crossfade). Plant only gets better withage and his voice shows it.
Overall Impression — 10
Aside from "Dreamland," "Mighty Rearranger" is Plant's best sounding album. Lyrically, I have to rate it higher than "Dreamland" if only because Plant didn't write most of that album's songs. "Mighty Rearranger" is the great equalizer for Plant fans, offering something for everyone.
