Listening To: Eric Clapton – Old Sock

Nothing revelatory here. Just Clapton being Clapton on a series of songs that either are or immediately sound familiar. That’s good – that Clapton is enjoying the fact that he no longer has much to prove and just wants to make the music that sounds good to him – and bad – that he isn’t pushed at all to explore anything new, which he can still do – but it all adds up to a good record, albeit one that is going to be primarily for completists.
