Carroll's rock doesn't rock the boat


NOW that's what I call rock!
I say that because Dust Of Rumour, Irish troubadour Marc Carroll's third studio album, ticks all the boxes for being the sort of AOR you'd find three quarters of the way down a Now! double album propping up the track listing.
There's hints of Paul Weller and his Britpop cohorts, nods towards Bob Dylan, shades of The Levellers, a twist of The Edge's epic guitar work etc. etc.
You get the idea, Dust Of Rumour is nothing new - but that's not a massive complaint, because after all, if it ain't broke...
