While John Cale is best known as the avant-garde bass/viola/keyboard man of the early Velvet Underground, for the past 35 years his solo work has vacillated between experimental instrumental jabs and conventional, melancholia-tinged singer/songwriter fare. He's always engaged with new musical ideas—as a record producer, he's handled Nico, The Stooges, Jonathan Richman, and Patti Smith. Here, Cale credits Black Acetate's modern approach to his newfound interest in the music of Bloc Party and Pharrell, among others. Produced with Mickey Petralia (Beck, The Eels) and Herb Graham Jr. (Macy Gray), the album ranges from the dancefloor–ready "Hush" to the meditational "Gravel Drive," with Cale's typical professional versatility. Cale's that rare seasoned musician who can still tap the energy of his youth ("Perfect" and "Sold-Motel" have a garage-band rawness) and apply his expert classical training without losing his way. Anyone familiar with his earlier work like Fear and Slow Dazzle will be encouraged to hear the old lion still roaring from his heart.
