TIME
Rod Stewart
(Universal)

Rod Stewart has found his songwriting mojo on his first album of new material in well over a decade.  

The opening track She Makes Me Happy gives a clue as to how he might have rediscovered his muse (though he is on record as saying the writing of his autobiography got the creative juices flowing).  

Let's just say the images behind Sexual Religion and Make Love To Me Tonight, while they might disturb ageists, suggest that at 68 he's still a active as ever between the sheets.

Stewart's croak is as strong as his libido, the songs largely MOR-ish rather than ground-breaking but there's no sign yet of rust on one of rock music's elder statesman.  

Time still seems to be on his side.
