1982 was the year in which the wheels seriously started to come off the Status Quo express and, as a result, the album 1+9+8+2, which they (and we) would have hoped to have been their best ever, turned into a rather patchy release!

With the somewhat less than amicable departure of drummer John Coghlan and all the rest of the bands problems starting to take their toll, Quo then proceeded to turn out what I feel was their weakest album to date.

Of course, that's not to say that 1+9+8+2 is a bad release - far from it. 'Dear John' is a top class song and was also the first single to be released, deservedly becoming another top 10 hit.

Other good songs include 'Get Out And Walk', 'Resurrection', 'Doesn't Matter', 'Young Pretender' and 'I Should Have Known'.

Unfortunately there are also some rather indifferent songs here in my view - much more of a rare event on previous Quo albms. 'Big Man', 'I Want The World To Know' and 'I Love Rock n Roll' are, I think, sub-par and not worthy of Quo!

Despite being far from a bad album, 1+9+8+2 seemed to be the end of an era and, overall, a bit of a nadir for Quo. Of course, at that time nobody had any idea of what was to happen in the next 15-20 years!

You just can't beat the Quo, A Great Group live or on album. If you don't have any of the old albums, Get Them!

I'm amazed by the lukewarm reception to this album. For me, it is a consistent and solid effort, better than the previous one 'Never Too Late' which I have never really got into.

There are many reasons for this. The production is suprisingly raw compared to the glossy 'Never Too Late' and I think most of the record shows a very high standard of song writing.

That's not to say there aren't flaws: 'I Love Rock And Roll' is dire musically but especially lyrically....cheesey beyond belief! Although that song is good compared to 'Big Man' which is unexcusably poor, kind of prog rock-ish with horrible 80's synths and the worst lyrics ever. Sorry Alan (Lancaster)......but at least Mr Lancaster has one great track here, the brilliant, rocking 'I Want The World To Know'.

Those above mentioned bad songs hardly ruin the album though, it is still very consistent and has a great sound with lots of interesting variations in style. Highlights are all over the place. The thrilling, fast paced opener 'She Don't Fool Me' gets the album going in style. There are lots of typical Quo rock/blues tracks on offer here along with pop tracks like the brilliantly melodic 'Young Pretender' which still has a strong boogie, a stunning Rick Parfitt number in 'Resurrection' (very bluesy and shivers-down-the-spine groovy! Love It!) and probably the best of all, the addictive 'Dear John'. It is an under-rated track and was released as a single at the time. It rocks and has a very catchy melody, what more can I say?

Status Quo's profile was as high as it had ever been when they made this album. They had just played before royalty and were celebrating twenty years since Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster had first joined forces. Not surprisingly, "1982" sold well. They were also parading a new line-up. Pete Kircher, their new drummer, didn't have as much slam as John Coghlan, but he did a pretty good job here. More significant however was the inclusion of Andy Bown as a full member of the band. Having served the band so long as a bit-part keyboard player he deserved such recognition. The problem is that Quo's success is based on being a guitar band. Keyboards are rarely noticeable on their classic 1970s work. By making Bown a permanent member they had to make more room for his contribution. The eventual result was a compromise that would help dilute their sound and alienate many fans.
Ironically, it isn't much of a problem on this album. "1982" possesses a good, crunching rock sound throughout. The one disappointment is that there isn't one track that could be described as a killer. Quo show a good deal of panache but the material tends to good rather than great. "Dear John", the major hit on here, has never been one of my favourite songs. It promises much but the chorus is poor. "She Don't Fool Me" is carried at a pleasingly high tempo, but again never quite achieves total lift-off. It's the same story across most of the album.
Alan Lancaster's "I Love Rock And Roll" sounds more like a hit, but not so much like typical Quo and the lyrics are trite even by their standards. The bonus tracks on this reissue also seem a little out of place. Beyond one b-side it appears to have been a struggle to find anything worthwhile so a couple of live NEC tracks have been added.
