On Pilgrim we encounter a Clapton who is heartbroken but artistically reinvigorated, a guitar hero who knows too well that despite that flattering “Clapton Is God” graffiti of yore, he is entirely human. […]
Pilgrim is a massive chore to listen to. It’s half-hearted, boring, it doesn’t rock, the lyrics are badand both the music and vocals are so professional they’re bland. Avoid. […]
