It may be simplistic to describe Alejandro Escovedo's 2006 album The Boxing Mirror as a record inspired by the artist's brush with death, but given the record's back story - it was recorded as Escovedo was recovering from a near-fatal bout with Hepatitis C - it's hard not to imagine its brave and often dazzling creative.

For Escovedo fans that have followed the local star through the Nuns, Rank and File, the True Believers, and Buick MacKane, Real Animal bares teeth and soul in rock & roll payback. 80. Even as the songs triangulate the nexus of Marc Bolan, Iggy Pop and Doug Sahm, the album never sounds beholden to rock history. It’s more of an autobiographical undertaking, as if Escovedo is taking stock of his life, his career and his record collection-which are all essentially the same thing

Real Animal sounds like an Alejandro Escovedo album, yet thanks to Visconti’s contributions, it doesn’t really sound like any of his previous albums. Despite these flourishes, Escovedo’s default setting remains easygoing country-inflected rock that’s informed by his Texas upbringing and allows for uptempo chargers like opener Always a Friend (featuring his loosest vocal performance in years) as well as ballads like Swallows of San Juan (its melodies swooping and diving dramatically).
