Before now, a concert promoter would have to be high to book Hawksley Workman on a bill with '80s stalwarts Loverboy, Honeymoon Suite or even The Police. Now, it makes perverse sense. His first balls-out rock album since Lover/Fighter, Workman brings all the guitars and catchy choruses of that 2003 release, with added Canrock thrills. Acolytes of Joel Plaskett's Ashtray Rock will be right at home here, while fans of the mournful, cabaret-style Workman, aghast at all the cheery pop, may find respite in remixed versions of a few Between the Beautifuls tracks. Or, maybe not. Fuck 'em if they don't: This record kicks ass.
