Music Review: Graham Parker’s ‘Stick to Me’

Graham Parker's Stick to Me

Britain’s answer to Bruce Springsteen, Graham Parker, sounds positively menacing throughout Stick to Me, his Nick Lowe–produced third album, a rhythmic, hard-edged outcry that seems rooted in the singer’s wrong-side-of-the-tracks background. Underlining its status as one of contemporary rock’s hottest, tightest ensembles, the Rumour does a first-rate job of putting across its leader’s compact, R&B-tinged material. Parker’s deceptively simple lyrics, which radiate intensity, rank among many additional reasons why he may be just a disc or two away from superstardom.
