The term yacht rock was, it seems, originally intended as an insult, but music that might once have been described as soft rock, adult oriented rock, American rock or seventies rock is the basis of what is apparently now described as yacht rock. I won't even attempt to differentiate between the categories, but having been attracted by the title, I liked this compilation enough to buy it.
Most of the songs should be familiar even if you don't instantly recognize them from the titles. Most of the artists are American, with a few Brits. Most of the artists are men, with a few women. Most of the tracks are of a very high quality. Going into detail about them all seems pointless.
This is a great compilation, whatever the title. Whoever invented the term yacht rock, intending it to be an insult, must be gutted that the term - and the music - have been accepted.
