His actual style of music is really hard to pigeon hole - as if you’d even try! – as he tends to flit kind of this way and that, with some blues, some classic rock, but also kind of skiffle at times as well, but vocally with his phrasing style, it’s really not unlike say Bruce, Mark Knopfler or even Bob Dylan.
It’s skiffle band time next with ‘Amy Joan Blues,’ where Nils pulls in Paul Rodgers for some vocal input, but you almost wouldn’t know it was Rodgers from the mix, just like the opening track ‘Old School’ with Lou Gramm.
Next track is in an almost Van Morrison vein, perhaps the song title leads me to think that with ‘Irish Angel.’
‘When You Were Mine’ is a laid back folksy like ballad and I really feel again that Nils has played so much with Bruce Springsteen that I think his phrasings and songwriting have rubbed off on Nils greatly. Sadly for me, that’s not to my liking, but that’s not to say of course that many of you would feel the same.
So overall, really, not my bag I have to say. Perhaps just too rootsy which might well work for a lot of people, just not me …
