The Confessor

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Chrispell
Joe Walsh just hasn't been able to produce a complete album of great material, and The Confessor is no exception. The first half is dreck, with such titles as "I Broke My Leg" and "Bubbles." Keep listening, however, and at the halfway mark you find one of Walsh's masterpieces. The title tune is great -- over seven minutes of pure Joe Walsh rock with cryptic lyrics and a socko arrangement. The second half also includes a cover of Michael Stanley's "Rosewood Bitters," which Walsh played on long ago. Worthwhile for the title track alone.
