Huey Lewis and the News haven't been heard much here in the UK for a good few years now, and their music has been put to the back of the drawer marked '80s' along with the Rubik's Cube and the legwarmers. This collection of new material demonstrates that you just can't keep a good band down. Evolving from their incessant touring (they play at least 100 shows a year) this album has the feel of a live, gigging band that know what they are doing. Huey's voice hasn't lost its trademark rasp, and if anything his vocals are better now than they ever have been. The music itself has matured from the 80s pop/rock scene to a more mellow R&B feel, which is no bad thing, as I imagine most of their 80s fans have done much the same thing. Fantastic musicianship, punchy brass riffs, and bass lines to die for. The usual well-chosen cover version is represented here by Nick Lowe's 'When I Write the Book' - a single if ever I heard one. Huey Lewis and the News may not have been here for a long time, but they are certainly here for a good time!
