4.0 out of 5 stars the lost album
Or more accurately the forgotten album, I myself delayed purchase due to poor reviews, a mistake, as although nothing from it will make any greatest hits package it pure RP. He wrote 9 of the 12 tracks & shared credits for "True Love", released after his spell with the Power Station & before his live album, it was his penultimate album.
It kicks off with the single...

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Than You Think
Well, there has been alot said over how good Rhythm And Blues, just look at the other review for the 'anti' review'. Personally i disagree this is a good album from one of the most talented singer/songwriters around. The start of the album has one of his greatest songs, the sublime 'True Love'
I admit in the middle Mr. Palmer seems to lose his way and wallows in...

4.0 out of 5 stars the lost album, 19 Dec 2009
This review is from: Rhythm and Blues (Audio CD)
Or more accurately the forgotten album, I myself delayed purchase due to poor reviews, a mistake, as although nothing from it will make any greatest hits package it pure RP. He wrote 9 of the 12 tracks & shared credits for "True Love", released after his spell with the Power Station & before his live album, it was his penultimate album.
It kicks off with the single "True Love", a track if released during his glory days that would have been a major hit, the majority of the other tracks are polished & professional, but not instantly memorable. The exceptions are "Tennis" a clever track reminiscant of his 70s work, the cover of "20 million things" & "Let's get it on" the rest are standard RP - but his standards were always very high!

I admit in the middle Mr. Palmer seems to lose his way and wallows in 'adequacy'. But to be classed as being too cliched is wrong. The album comes from the heart and it is a perfect album to play to a loved one.
The lyrics are good, the music is very good...so lets here it for Mr Palmer

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 1 Jan 2014
This review is from: Rhythm and Blues (Audio CD)
The album would have been better if he had used real drums. This is a purely techno album. The song writing was strong, and Palmer's vocals were good. This is definitely a concept album. After a long series of eclectic albums made between 1969 and 1990, Palmer started making concept albums - Ridin High (cabaret in 1992), Living In Fear (hard rock 1996) and Drive (blues 2003). R&B is an essential part of the Palmer canon. True Love and Stonecold are two of the best songs he ever wrote.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sexual cliches abound in uninspired collection, 2 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Rhythm and Blues (Audio CD)
One always approaches RP albums with a certain feeling of stepping into the dark...he often crams too many different styles onto one piece of work,ending up pleasing no-one all the time.However,this time,the whole thing is far too samey.Uninspired arrangements and the most hoary collection of tired old sexual/romantic cliches I've heard for a long time.The old roue needs to change the record.The only good track is the last,the cover of Lowell George's 20 Million Things.
