4.0 out of 5 stars Fine final release from Badfinger 29 Nov 2002
By Wayne Klein VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Tom Evans and Joey Molland were Badfinger at this point. This final outing is a strong rock record but misses the touch of Pete Ham. After being chewed up and spit out by the recording industry, there wasn't much interest in Badfinger among the suits. The album did remarkably well considering that the record company couldn't get product into the stores and Hold On threatened the charts for a brief, euphoric period.
Here Molland and Evans get to strut their stuff without Pete Ham and it shows that there was more to the band than Ham. It also demonstrated that Ham was the most important songwriter in the band despite the obvious talent of Evans and Molland. This, the band's last gasp, was a nice way to go out. Even if they weren't on the top of the charts, they did go out with a quality album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Undeservingly Ignored 16 Feb 2004
By The Man On The Flaming Pie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
With Joe Tansin no longer gumming up the works, Evans/Molland managed to put together a pretty good album. While Airwaves sounded to cater to radio listeners, Say No More is pure rock. That's not to mean that this is a hard-rocking album--Badfinger sounds overall as poppy as ever on this one. However, there is nary a ballad to be found here (though a couple of the lighter songs come close) and the production barely sounds "80's" on most of the tracks.
Say No More honestly isn't a GREAT collection of songs and the best ones don't stand out TOO much, but what it IS is a solid album, which is more than what can be said about its predecessor. It doesn't stand up too strongly next to Badfinger's "classic" albums, but it is definately a worthwhile listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Of The Best 31 July 2000
By Scott Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Joey Molland and the late Tom Evans have outdone themselves with this, the final release under the Badfinger moniker. It doesn't compare with the classic Badfinger, as Mike Gibbins and the late Pete Ham are not part of the line-up - rather, it accentuates it. The crystal clear vocals from Evans; coupled with the gritty, bluesy style of Molland; give the listener a musical treat that rivals anything the band did in the early seventies. Songs such as 'Crocadillo' and 'Rock 'N' Roll Contract' (a remake of a song on the still unreleased Head First LP) have a drive that carries the listener from the first note to the last (and the autobiographical lyrics of 'Contract' give the story of the band's problems with management and contracts circa 1974/5 - and unchanged in 1980/81). 'Because I Love You' is a pleasing ballad with positive emotions. You know how the singer feels. Ditto for 'Too Hung Up On You'. The title track ('No More') is a fitting closer to a fine, fine album. One can only wish that the legal problems had been solved by this time and that Tom Evans was still with us - what would the third album from this duo have been like? (Airwaves being the first). Then again, if the legal problems hadn't happened and the world hadn't lost Pete Ham - the original Badfinger line-up would have given us something different, based on the boots of Head First.
But things being as they became, 'Say No More' is a superb effort from two supreme musical talents. Finally out on CD, one doesn't have to listen to a 20 year old vinyl pressing with a defective (noisy) side two. Excellent tracks in excellent quality. Gotta have. Better get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not A Bad Way To Bow Out... 4 Jun 2000
By "doctoraftershave" - Published on Amazon.com
to be honest, if you held this album up to the band's glory years (1969-1974), it would be a little weak. but standing on it's own, it is a masterpiece. Joey Molland & Tom Evans first reunited and started recording again as Badfinger for the "Airwaves" album. despite a few good songs, the album came up short. 2 years later, they gave it another shot with "Say No More". i believe that this is their best album. the songs have a ragged, hard rocking sound to them, that you would not know was Badfinger, if not for the title on the album cover.
"Hold On", which was the album's first (and only) single, climbed up the charts and stalled at #56, while the album sat near the bottom of the Top 200. "Hold On" is an excellent piece of pop, with it's rolling piano and drum melody. that song alone is worth buying the album, but Molland/Evans actually kept the ball rolling throughout the album. "Come On" is an excellent rocker, with power chord guitar riffs and shouting vocals by Evans. Evans' other highlights on the album were "Too Hung Up On You", which for my money, was more heartbreaking than his song "Lost Inside Your Love" (from the "Airwaves" album). Molland & Evans' harmonies on this song are so beautiful, it makes you wonder why this song was never released as a single.
the other song by Evans which is great is "Rock & Roll Contract". this is actually a remake of the unreleased song on the 1975 unreleased Badfinger album "Head First". Evans sings in a bitter mood about his let-downs in the music industry and having this song on a flopped album, only increases the irony.
Joey Molland was firing on all pistons, too. the album's opener "I Got You", is a fast rocker, with excellent guitar playing that sticks in your head for days. "Three Time Loser" was Molland's own opinion about the record business and he sings it like a beaten person who has given up on everything. however, his masterpiece (and the album's) is "No More". words cannot describe how great this song is. this song is the kind of song that thousands of lesser bands would kill for. a hard rocker, with blazing synth and guitar leads, will blow you away. Molland and Evans sing like there's no tomorrow. on the CD release this song is moved to the next to last position, where it weakens the song a little bit. but if you have ever heard this song on the original vinyl (where it was the closing track), you would see what i mean that this song was THE song to finish the album.
it's sad that Molland/Evans wasn't able to turn their bad luck around with this album. but, as the last album by the "Near Original" Badfinger, it wasn't a bad way to bow out.

3.0 out of 5 stars You know what I mean (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) 28 Oct 2000
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although this isn't up to the best material that Badfinger recorded in its prime, "Say No More" is less slick and more rock orientated than its predecessor "Airwaves". The It's still a fine album despite its production flaws. "I Got You" and "Hold On" are highlights both featuring strong melodies and top notch singing from Joey and Tommy. The addition of keyboardist Tony Kaye from Yes expands the sound on this album. The "band" sounds more like a "band" here--the previous incarnation that recorded "Airwaves" broke up before they ever toured and this version actually DID tour. The band sounds tight and while the material here isn't always the best, even the weakest material works pretty well with the tight playing by the band.

We also get the Tommy's bitter classic "Rock 'n' Roll Contract" which is quite good (although I prefer the version that was recorded for "Head First"). Molland and Evans did their best to carry in after the death of Pete Ham. Both were talented songwriters and players but, truly, the heart of Badfinger was Ham and without him much of their passion was missing on this comeback record. Sadly, this would be the last album that Molland and Evans would make as Badfinger. Evans and Molland would split with Evans touring with a competing version of Badfinger that featured former Badfinger member (from "Head First") Bob Jackson and drummer Mike Gibbins fighting with Molland over the use of the name. Throughout it all the band was picked apart by the vultures in the music biz. Evans would later kill himself while original drummer Mike Gibbins died from cancer a couple of years ago.

A pity that the demos for the album couldn't be included (including the demos that Tom Evans and Joey Molland submitted to Radio Records for the follow up album that was never done). Sadly, this album had very bad distribution when it was original released (the album actually started moving up the charts and the band had a minor hit with "Hold On" which made it to #57 on the Billboard singles chart)and the original distributor Radio Records just didn't do a good job getting this into stores at a critical time for its success.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Final Badfinger Albums has its Great Moments 8 Feb 2004
By Morten Vindberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Badfinger line-up that recorded "Airwaves" had already disbanded before the album was released. For "Say No More" Tom Evans and Joey Molland had brought together another strong version of Badfinger. Tony Kaye ( known from Yes) played the keyboards, Glen Sherba played guitars, Richard Bryans played drums and Tom and Joey played their usual bass and guitar. This album would be the last Badfinger album; Tony Kaye and Tom Evans actually did rehearse for a second Radio Records album, but nothing came out of that.
Their ideas for "Say No More" was to produce a rock album; not so slick and commercial as "Airwaves". Unfortunately the material on the album is not up to the same standards as its predecessor. A few strong tracks can be found here, though. "Too Hung Up On You" by Tom Evans is the outstanding track on the album; to my ears the only song where the vocals sound like classic Badfinger. "Hold On" is a good song too; it actually was a minor hit.
Some of Joey Mollands songs also rocks nicely!
