This is solo album number 33 for KEVIN K and with its consistently strong material, CADALLAC MAN makes a strong claim as KEVIN K's magnum opus. That's a statement not made lightly considering KEVIN K has been making records since 1978. During lockdown, Kevin put his 'Keith Richards' hat on and began writing songs in open G five string tuning for the first time. The resultant songs could indeed be extras on Sticky Fingers or Exile. Thematically, some of the songs have a reflective or observational quality. There are songs about growing up (Pendleton) to the years of living as a musician in NYC (Village Girl, 1989). There are songs about loss (I Miss You, Tear Drops Don't Stop, You Let Me Down), songs about the covid lockdowns and dystopian state of the world (No Respect, Dum Days, Zombie Heat), and hopelessness (Start Me Down). KEVIN K comes full circle and closes the album with A NEW LIFE, a song of optimism about the future ahead after overcoming adversity. There's even the ultimate tribute to the Ramones with NO RAMONES.
