In the face of the legend that he once was, it's very fashionable to dismiss Eric Burdon 's '70s-and-later output as little more than an afterthought -- which may or may not be true. But from the moment 's I Used to Be an Animal kicks into groove, it's clear that Burdon has spent the last few years doing more than kicking over old traces. The putative soundtrack to the singer's recently published autobiography, I Used to Be an Animal chases that band's career through its own chops and changes, pitfalls and high points, but without ever actually looking back.
Situations and ambitions are recalled, to be sure. But the ice-sharp production and soaring, anthemic attack merges memory with modernity, to produce an album that still turns unsuspecting heads around -- "what is that you're playing? Again, received wisdom insists that Burdon lost the power of re-invention around the time the New Animals cascaded into his linkup with Emergency - In Strict Confidence - Holy. In fact, I Used to Be an Animal I Used To Be An Animal - Eric Burdon - I Used To Be An Animal those departures look positively pre-ordained.
There are a handful of familiar touchstones in sight -- "Going Back to Memphis," "Leo's Place," and the seriously Stones-y "Living in Fear" all draw the old blues wailer back into view, to prove that the tonsils are still as tight as ever. But the heart of I Used to Be an Animal is maverick madness, electrifying urban soul that doesn't give a damn for reputation or preconception. In other words, Burdon might not have been an animal any longer. But he was still a raging beast.
