agreed, this is the first album of the "new quo", with rhino and jeff rich replacing alan lancaster and john coughlan/pete kircher, so the outcome of the album would not be in the same style as previous albums. putting that aside, as an album, it is very disappointing. it isnt classic quo as we know them, and i dont feel it is a very heavy album.
having said that, there are a couple of good tracks on it. namely the famous "in the army now", which is still played at every live show they do, and it is admittidly, a classic, and also the less well known rollin' home, which is the closest you're gonna get to a typical quo style boogie.
the rest are not really worth mentioining i dont think, they are not quo tracks. they are light 80s tracks with that horrible 80s feel to them. "red sky" is pretty good, but agian, these are tracks that are all listenable to, and some quite good, but if i wanted to hear this sort of music, i wouldnt buy a quo album. quo are capabale of a lot more than this. they are hard rock boogie masters, nothing else, which to be honest, is fantastic. us quo fans dont want new style songs with different feels, we want plain and simple headbanging rock. this album doesnt provide it.
quo went through this period in the late 80s where i felt they had lost that magic quo, namely in this album, and its two follow ups "aint complaining" and "perfect remedy", both of which should be avoided at all costs.
if you want the cream of quo, and want to be turning your speakers up on full and get down to some serious hard boogie rock, i suggest you save up for their first few albums, namley piledriver (one of the greatest albums ever made), hello, on the level, whatever you want, quo, live, and ma kelly.
