5.0 out of 5 stars You'll always get the best of him, 28 Oct 2004
This review is from: Room Service (Audio CD)
Ignore all the negative reviews you may have read, if you're a BA fan you will love Room Service. So many tracks off this album have just stuck in my head and refuse to be dislodged. The album opener Eastside Story is a cracker, arguably the best song he's written since Waking up the neighbours era.
I'm not going to individually review each track because you need to make up your own minds. However my personal highlights are the title track, Room Service, the first single Open Road (which reminds me so much of Run to You) and Not Romeo Not Juliet, a catchy slow burner of a track, which I think may well be the next single.
To be honest though there isn't a bad or even remotely poor track on the album. I tried hard not to like Flying as I'm a fan of his rockier stuff but having seen him perform this track acoustically on his recent UK tour it's now also firmly lodged in my head. It was also good to see him reunited on this track with Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the master producer who has done so much good work with BA but also Def Leppard and AC/DC.
Blessing in Disguise is a great way to finish the album, a real bluesy rocker reminiscent of his cover of Come On Everybody, which he used to perform live in the early nighties. The album does tail off a bit towards the end but this is a minor criticism. In summary, Room Service is a great album from a bunch of great musicians, it's not his best, I still rate Waking up the neighbours as his highpoint but it could well be a close 2nd and it's well worth a place in your collection. I just hope that the guy's decide to bring out a new live album as the live arena is where they really come into there own
