And when I came to title the album I used that track as a key point to go from, because I thought it was a good way of actually following the thread from Journeyman which was the same kind of meaning, really.
Just looking at my life as a musician and a lot of other respects. It is autobiographical. And I see myself as kind of being like a lone guy on a quest". However, when Japanese manga and anime artist Yoshiyuki Sadamoto , who is best known as the character designer for Neon Genesis Evangelion , got to see the work, he executed Clapton's idea and designed the cover and packaging, which was approved by Clapton and used for the final release.
In his autobiography, Clapton noted that he asked his drummer, Steve Gadd , how he would feel about making the saddest record of all time. Gadd said he could work on Clapton's idea and the British recording artist chose to start working on the new project, although Clapton felt it could be a worrying time recording the saddest record that has ever been made. Because " My Father's Eyes " and " Circus " were the only finished tunes Clapton had when going into the studio, he wrote several new songs stating he worked nearly a whole year every day and night to record good songs with perfect detail.
Clapton calls Pilgrim one of his favourite albums because he put so much passion and hard work into making it. During that time, Clapton parted with his long-time manager Roger Forrester, mainly because Clapton took so long recording the album and paying too much money on the album, renting several studios for nearly a whole year.
According to the music website AllMusic , the studio release belongs to the musical genres of both pop and rock music, in styles of album rock , contemporary pop and rock as well as adult contemporary music. Pilgrim brings, so the music website says, a slick, smooth, detached, laid-back, mellow, refined, reflective, stylish, sentimental and reserved mood with it.
The music website CD Shakedown thinks the album is not rock and not blues, but full-on contemporary pop music. Twelve of the album's tracks were either written completely alone by Clapton, or at least co-written by the British rock musician. Although Clapton recorded both of the songs in the acoustic situation, he never officially released the recordings until the deluxe edition of the live album was released in In his autobiography, Clapton noted, the reason for the delayed release was because he felt the songs were not quite finished.
The album features only two cover versions of songs: " Born in Time ", which was written by Bob Dylan and sent to Clapton by Dylan,  as well as " Going Down Slow ", a blues standard, written and recorded by St.
Louis Jimmy Oden. Records for worldwide territories on compact disc , grammophone record and music cassette. For example, in  and , the record was re-released on 12" vinyl with better quality pressings, and was in re-released by Audio Fidelity Records as a Super Audio CD. The first single off the Pilgrim album was "My Father's Eyes", which was released along with the B-side of the instrumental of "Inside of Me" as both a compact disc single and maxi compact disc single on 9 February Although the track was not released on either compact disc, digital, cassette or grammophone record formats, it was made available in April for radio stations as an airplay single.
AllMusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine awards the release two out of five possible stars, noting the album "tries to reach a middle ground between the two extremes ' Tears in Heaven ' and ' Change the World ', balancing tortured lyrics with smooth sonic surfaces". Erlewine goes on in his review, criticising both Eric Clapton's and Simon Climie's production: "The problem lies in the production, which relies entirely on stiff mechanical drumbeats, gauzy synthesizers, and meandering instrumental interludes.
These ingredients could result in a good record, as 'Change the World' demonstrated, but not here, due to [the album's] monotonous production". The music critic also notes Clapton's singing and playing is weird on Pilgrim , noting "Clapton doesn't want to shake things up — his singing is startlingly mannered, even on emotionally turbulent numbers like 'My Father's Eyes' or 'Circus'. Even worse, he's content to take a back seat instrumentally, playing slight solos and fills as colorless as the electronic backdrops".
Comparing the album to the hit releases Journeyman , From the Cradle and Unplugged , Erlewine finishes his review for AllMusic , calling the studio effort full of "blandness" and "disappointing".
But the gems are here, including the leadoff single, 'My Father's Eyes' and 'Circus' as [ Pilgrim ] delivers your money's worth [and has] high points". However, the reviewers criticize the album's plus 70 minutes length, finding it "more manageable if Clapton had released it as a double-disc package".
But it's still a blues album in the sense that it captures the sound of a man trying to tame hellhounds from within and without. In the end, Pilgrim is not purely anything, except purely moving". He awarded the release four out of five possible stars. While his guitar playing is kept on its usual leash here, he lets loose occasional bursts of staccato blues licks, as on the funky 'She's Gone', which musters up some sass to offset all the heartbreak".
Nichols disliked the album's "schmaltzy ballads" the most. He goes on in his review, stating Pilgrim sounds like a demo recording , however, Verna also likes some of the album's tracks, but calls Pilgrim a release, which does not live up to Clapton's giant legacy.
It's half-hearted, boring, it doesn't rock, the lyrics are bad, and both the music and vocals are so professional they're bland". For their review, the critics explained the bad remarks of the album, starting with Clapton's vocals, which are "bad", because "Clapton sings every song in a very smooth, flat manner". By finishing the review, the critics note the material on the album "does not rock in any way whatsoever.
Listening is like sitting through a film you much admire but fervently wish would hurry up and end". But the truly sad thing about Pilgrim — for Clapton and maybe all of us — is that not even music may have the power to heal certain types of pain".
