”Simplicity, it works for me,” growls Bob Seger on his first studio album in 11 years. And he’s right. The Midwesterner’s new disc, Face the Promise, highlights his unadorned, plainspoken style, best experienced on rugged blue-collar ruminations like ”Wreck This Heart” and the redemptive piano ballad ”No Matter Who You Are.” The 61-year-old doesn’t completely avoid the pitfalls of a late-career comeback — the lyrics lack the cinematic details of his classic hits, and leaden riffs weigh down the harder tracks — but this is satisfying meat-and-potatoes rock.
