REVIEWS
Average points: 4.25 (Reviews: 4)
****
kann sich hören lassen und nimmt es locker auch mit seinen erfolgreichsten longplayer auf..
****
Sehe ich auch so. Dennoch sind die 5 Sterne hier knapp verfehlt - von daher sehr sehr gute 4!

Highlights: "The Royal Mile", "The Garden Of England" und mit leichten Abstrichen "Didn't I" und "Café le Cabotin".
*****
Hörenswertes Album. Leichtgängie Kompositionen in gekonnten Arrangements....
****
Gerry Rafferty's viertes Soloalbum 'Snakes And Ladders', 1980 erschienen, hat durchaus seine Qualitäten, kann aber meiner Meinung nach dem Vorgänger 'Night Owl' und schon gar nicht seinem Meisterwerk 'City To City' das Wasser reichen. Auch das Debütalbum von 1971 gefällt mir noch einen Hauch besser.
Trotzdem ist es ein Album, das keinen wirklich schlechten Song enthält. Am Stärksten gelungen sind die beiden auch als Single ausgekoppelten Nummern, zum einen das bluesige 'Bring It All Home', zum anderen das beschwingte 'The Royal Mile'. Auch 'Didn't I', das Gerry bereits auf seinem ersten Soloalbum veröffentlichte und hier in einer neuen Version zu hören ist, überzeugt.
Die restlichen Songs, darunter auch eine Neuversion von 'Johnny's Song', den er ursprünglich 1972 mit Stealer's Wheel aufgenommen hat, gefallen ohne Ausnahme, ohne jedoch einen unvergesslichen Eindruck zu hinterlassen.

Das Album errichte 1980 #15 in UK, #61 USA und #34 in D.
Meine Bewertung: 4+
