Release Notes:

Back in the early nineties, Todd Rundgren once sang about ôthe
old rocking chairö and how it beckoned him ôlike a junkieÆs
needle.ö Well, thank goodness he never succumbed to that
middle-aged temptation. This year, Rundgren has been busier
than ever, touring almost non-stop with his own band as well
as heading up a BeatlesÆ Sgt. Peppers tribute tour. He even
managed to find time to record his twentieth solo album,
Arena, which will be making its way to stores by the end of
September. Arena is probably the most accessible sounding
record Rundgren has made since the Nearly Human days. ItÆs
essentially the guitar-rock album fans have long been asking
for. YouÆll find no church-bashing (i.e. Fascist Christ,
Mammon), pseudo-rapping (i.e. No World Order, Individualist)
or show tunes (i.e. The Smell of Money) here. YouÆll even
notice simpler chord progressions just by the fact that the
songs are guitar-based rather than keyboard-based. So, those
typical Rundgren-esque tone-clusters which are normally an
integral part of the Rundgren sound arenÆt as plentiful
although they do pop up now and then like in the middle
section of Afraid or the bridge in the song Today. But donÆt
get me wrong when I say ôsimplerö chords. This just means that
the songs will have a more immediate impact on a wider range
of listeners. Hopefully this new accessible version of
Rundgren will allow him to reach a larger audience this time
around which unfortunately didnÆt happen the last go-round
with his critically acclaimed Liars album in 2004.

As with most of his albums, Rundgren focused his material on a
particular concept which, on Arena, is all about conflict and
how we (men in particular) react to them. Rundgren was quoted
in a recent interview that ôthis record is more about action.
Time for talk is over. Now itÆs time to actually do

- Overall Sound - If youÆre familiar with RundgrenÆs output
over the last decade then you basically know how he operates
in terms of recording his albums. Arena was essentially
recorded with protools on his macbook utilizing
programmed/sequenced bass and drum tracks, virtual guitar amp
emulators, etc. Personally I would have preferred real drums
over the ôcannedö drum sounds but that just might be the
drummer side of me talking. Those sampled drum sounds just
donÆt give songs like ôMercenaryö, ôStrikeö and ôMountaintopö
the visceral power they need to take æem over the top, you
know what I mean? Aside from the guitars, the ôvirtual bandö
made some of the songs sound a bit more restrained than I
would have liked. Not really sure if it was a time or budget
limitation but I suppose thatÆs ToddÆs call and who am I to
argue, right? And I guess, in the overall scheme of things,
the sound of the record isnÆt as important as the songs
themselves. As long as the songs are well written it really
doesnÆt matter how their recorded. Just take the timeless
Beatles catalog as one example of that. And itÆs safe to say
with these 13 songs on Arena, Rundgren delivers! ItÆs
definitely the perfect follow up to his 2004 Liars album.
