Not one of his best
Review written by Ali, October 30th, 2004
There are three themes that run through this album: Blondes, California, and Blonde Girls from California. Of course, it's only fitting since the album is titled "Blondes." I don't think this album has quite the punch as some of John's others such as Chilly Winds or Wires From the Bunker. The lyrics don't seem to be as good and yes, I get a little tired of hearing about California. Lindsey Buckingham appears on "Jenny Was a Dream Girl" but the song is not one of my faves. "Blonde Star" is rumoured to be about Stevie Nicks. "Girl Down the River" definitely reminds me of John's songs I love best...a little more folk sounding than the others. If you get the Swedish import, you will also get the song "All the Desperate Men" one of John's best songs. Overall, not John's best, but a good effort nonetheless.
