Format: Audio CD
I've always loved this album but can understand why many people were unimpressed. It's predecessor was undoubtedly one of the greatest rock albums of all time, and was widely recognised as such. Maybe it was naive but Ronnie and the boys were not content to make a follow-up which was a mere continuation of the same winning formula. Instead they went with (to my ears) a more mature, varied, and less commercial sound, which was still better than almost anything else around.

Ronnie Montrose trademarks abound on this album - his willingness to do covers (in this case one of the Stones lesser-known songs "Connection"); instrumentals - "Starliner" was to be first of many and has an unforgettable hook ; heavy slide guitar in the title track ; and his inclusion of slower and acoustic material. He provides the vocal on "We're going home", which has a killer guitar solo, and which no doubt probably upset Sammy Hagar not a little!

"I got the Fire" is as good as anything on the first album, and is similar to a Hendrix riff but metallised. This should have been the album opener which instead was the over-produced "Underground", melodic enough but maybe the weakest song on the CD. "Dreamer" has a very heavy riff, and "Spaceage sacrifice" is a nod to Ronnies interest in sci-fi, and is a strong mid-tempo number.

Bass (provided by newcomer Alan Fitzgerald) and drums are much more to the fore here, with Denny Carmassi turning in perhaps his finest ever performance on record. Hagar provided another excellent set of vocals on this album, but disagreements with Ronnie Montrose led to a parting of the ways, and a decline in both parties output. Montrose's next 2 albums and the first few Hagar releases were pretty naff affairs.

In summary :not as good as "Montrose", a touch over-produced, less in-your-face guitar, perhaps a song short of being a classic, but I wish someone was making albums as good as this today !

Montrose second album PAPER MONEY has been well long overdue for a proper remastering
U.K. Distributor Rock candy is the company to give fans this new remaster
Paper money is not as Good as their self titled album but comes pretty damn close nethertheless
probably only 6 tracks are excellent Hard rockin' tracks,
I Got the fire, space station no.5 are major Highlights, paper money and the Dreamer are really Good aswell
tracks like Underground and connection are soft rock covers only
and the last Montrose album to have Sammy Hagar on vocals
Rock candy has newly remastered all 8 tracks with new 2015 audio technology
which does sound really Good probably the best the album has ever sounded actually
the previous cd versions by Warner bros released years ago sounded flat and not much boost in the sound quality

with any Rock candy reissue there's also a 12 page full colour booklet with 3,500 work essay about the making of the album
with new interviews with Sammy Hagar and others that were involved in making the album
very interesting read for sure
tragically there are no bonus tracks but you get new cover art, new Picture Disc & new 12 page booklet
that's way more effort than what warner bros did for paper money
about 3 stars for the album itself, 5 stars for this new rock candy reissue
Definitley worth upgrading

Released on its own people would have claimed that this album and band were going to be destined for greater things..but we all knew that this was a follow up to the mighty Montrose Debut which ripped across the music world leaving everyone gob smacked and panting for more. On its release this ` Paper money ` second album was different and had a more deeper edge to it some didnt click with it others me included gave it more playing time and grew into it, you should try it, these guys rock and Sammy Hagar`s voice is not as strong on future Van Halen albums as this, and Ronnie Montrose his guitar work speaks volumes.
