The title says it all, Sinematic, Robbie Robertson’s sixth solo album, sprang from a deep immersion in film work, his own dramatic life story and a fascination with the darker corridors of human nature. Robbie sings the opening verse on the album with malevolent delight: “Shall we take a little spin/To the dark side of town?”
It sets the stage for gripping tales of villainy and vice, for character studies of mobsters and gangsters embroiled in corruption and crime and for melancholy stories about destruction and devastation. Narrated in Robertson’s cool parched croon, the yarns unspool over his tasteful vibrant guitar stylings and a bedrock of moody, mid-tempo rock anchored on most tracks by bassist Pino Palladino (John Mayer Trio, The Who) and drummer Chris Dave (D’Angelo, Adele).
Produced by Robertson and recorded at The Village, the 13-song collection is the songwriter’s first set of originals since 2011’s introspective collaboration with Eric Clapton, How To Become Clairvoyant.
