While Mott the Hoople were one of the greatest British rock bands of the 1970s, they were also a band unafraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves, and it's hard to imagine any other group of pile-driving boogie merchants who could have gotten away with songs as emotionally naked as 'Sea Diver,' 'Hymn for the Dudes,' or 'I Wish I Was Your Mother.' Nearly 30 years after Mott the Hoople called it a day, frontman Ian Hunter was still rocking out, but he hadn't lost touch with his inner softie either, and this live album, recorded during a pair of Oslo concerts in early 2002, gives him the chance to put his more personal side front and center for an evening.

Recorded with a primarily acoustic band and a large string section helping out, Strings Attached features a set of Mott the Hoople classics and great songs from Hunter's solo career as he demonstrates the blend of hard-edged sentimentality and street smarts that has informed so much of his best work. In typical neo-Unplugged fashion, Strings Attached doesn't rock much, but it has a bit more backbone than you might expect -- the stripped-down versions of 'All the Way From Memphis' and 'Once Bitten, Twice Shy' are good rollicking fun -- and it finds Hunter in strong voice, calling up the sort of passion that marks his best music.

Part of what makes Hunter's songs so effective is the way he can tap into the deeper and more complex emotions that lurk inside even the toughest rocker's heart, and put them into song in a way that honors their delicacy without sounding mushy or saccharine. Strings Attached gives Hunter the space to honor this side of his repertoire, and the results are both good fun and emotionally potent stuff. So go on, grab a beer, sing along, and don't fight that lump in your throat -- that's what Ian Hunter wrote these songs for in the first place

„Mott The Hoople' war sowohl eine der besten Rockbands Englands. Aber auch eine Band, die nie Angst hatte das eigene Herz auf der Zunge zu tragen. Die besten Beispiele dafür sind Songs wie z.B „Sea Diver,' „Hymn For The Dudes' oder „I Wish I Was Your Mother.'

Fast 30 Jahre nach der Trennung von „Mott The Hoople' rockt Frontmann Ian Hunter immer noch. Dabei hat er niemals seine sentimentale Ader und seinen sanften Charakter verloren.

Dieses Live Album, aufgezeichnet in Oslo 2002, gab ihm die Möglichkeit, diese persönliche, zerbrechliche Seite in den Mittelpunkt zu stellen.

„Strings Attached', hauptsächlich mit einer akustischen Band und einem großen Streicher-Ensamble aufgenommen, präsentiert alle Hits von ‚Mott The Hoople', sowie die herausragensten Stücke aus Ian Hunter's‘ Solokarriere. Es ist die Mischung einer kompromisslosen Sentimentalität und einer erdigen Bodenhaftung, die schon immer Ian Hunter‘s Arbeit ausgezeichnet hat.

In einer typischen neo-Unplugged Art, rockt „Strings Attached' nicht so wie vielleicht erwartet, aber dennoch punktet dieses Konzert mit unerwartet starker Substanz. Lässt man sich darauf ein, machen die „abgerüsteten' Versionen von 'All the Way From Memphis' und 'Once Bitten, Twice Shy' großen Spaß. Es ist vor allem die starke Stimme Hunters, die diese Songs so überzeugend macht. Hunter greift dabei in seinem harten Herzen lebende komplizierte Emotionen auf und schafft es, diese in seinen Songs auszudrücken, ohne dabei jemals „kitschig' zu wirken.

„Strings Attached' gibt Hunter den Raum, der sentimentalen Seite seines Repertoires Ausdruck zu verleihen. Das Ergebnis macht Spaß, liefert aber zu dem auch Momente, die das Herz berühren.

Hol Dir ein Bier, sing mit, und vergiss den Kloß der Dir im Hals steckt! Dafür hat Hunter diese Songs geschrieben.
