you know you're over 40 when...,
This review is from: 101 Power Ballads (Audio CD)
This is an instant gift for 40 something Dads and chaps who spend a lot of time on the road...It doesn't break new ground, doesn't give the listener a new angle on anything, it just ROCKS.
If you've ever played Phil Cllins' In The Air Tonight drum solo this compilation is for you. If you've ever gurned alongside Freddy Mercury in your mind while he sings on the radio this compilation is for you.
Obviously by now the royalty payments are very low on most of these tracks hence their continued appearances on various compilations but it's a good, honest choice. A few nice surprises too (Cheap Trick et al)
If this were labelled 'Top Gear, Clarkson's Pyjama's' or something more marketable it would sell more strongly but it must be admitted that, for 101 tunes, this is more than a little of a bargain.
The box is awful and WILL fall apert the third time you open it by the way - 6 CDs in one multi-hinged case is beyond the powers of science...
