5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Having in Your Collection 30 Mar. 2017
By Earl Burton - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
For years I had the entirety of the music of The BusBoys on LP. Over the years, however, those albums have slowly disappeared. Now I have started to rebuild some of my old collection and replacing The BusBoys was the first step.

While "Minimum Wage Rock & Roll" and "American Worker" were the two priorities, "The Boys are Back in Town" and this CD were priceless pickups along with them. For myself, claiming some of my "old" music - in the CD format of today - is better than Christmas!

And it doesn't hurt that it's a damn good album also!
2.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone 29 Mar. 2016
By Brian St John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
To echo the sentiments of other reviewers: This is not the same group from "Minimum Wage Rock and Roll" and "American Worker." Those two albums had a lot of heart and were quite subversive in their own way.

Over-produced is not a phrase I throw around lightly. This album suffers from heavy-handed production. Almost every sound is heavily processed and laden with effects. Perhaps it is just a sign of the times (1987-1988) or perhaps it is a matter of musical taste, but it's hard to take all of the special effects and sounds. One has to wonder if the effects are there to distract from the thin song-writing.

This album isn't a complete disaster. It tries too hard to be commercial, and the songs are clearly designed to elicit radio play. What made the previous two albums successful had to do with the strong performances and the invigorating music-making by the original members of the band, most of whom have been replaced on Money Don't Make no Man.

This record is only for the collector or the curious.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you like change, this R&B/dance (3rd) album by the BusBoys will suit ya. 29 May 2008
By SuiteWilliam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, when you have one keyboard player (Brian O' Neal) and you hire two more (mainly synthersizer players), you must be looking in another direction of sound like imitation Prince or The Time. But why?

This is NOT your BusBoys of MINIMUM WAGE ROCK N' ROLL (1980) or AMERICAN WORKER (1982), The BusBoys' better albums. This time Brian O' Neal, Steve Felix and Victor Johnson recruit 3 new members (a bassist and two keyboardists) to replace the original 3 (which included the awesome songwriting talents to "Kay Kay Kay", "Respect" & "I Believe" written by Brian's brother Kevin) and additional vocalist Gus Lounderman. Look at the front cover. The two guys left of Brian O' Neal (center) look like Bobby Z (Prince & The Revolution) and Morris Day (The Time). Ya think?

Here you got the BusBoys gettin' funky like never before, but it's a synth-funk (almost like a new wave funk). Why did they feel they had to? The best track is the title track, with a similar groove to Hall & Oates "Maneater", it's the only refreshing track here. "Never Giving Up" is the first track. Apparently they lied. Sounds like the BusBoys still got the soul but without the rock n' roll and this song outlines the whole vibe of the rest of the album. And where is Victor Johnson? The band's guitarist. He's MIA like those other founding members I spoke about. A riff here and a riff there but the synthersizers rule (note this is their first CD in 16 years).

BB fans, if it wasn't the BusBoys and maybe a solo album by Brian O' Neal with 2 founding members added to a backing band for him, it's not half-bad but technically, it's NOT a Brian O' Neal solo album and it's not the BusBoys either. Skip.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for fans of their first 2 albums. 18 May 2006
By R. Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you were a fan of the first two albums of this band and were expecting more of the same on this album, let me save you time, money, and disappointment. This incarnation of the band bears almost no resemblence to what came before.

The band retooled their sound for this album and jettisoned the sociopolitical fare for more standard r&b fare and the result is something foreign to their former sound.

Now, that wouldn't make this a bad album. post-funk synth r&b was dominating the landscape at the time and this was clearly an effort to stay relevant at a time dominated by Al B. Sure, Keith Sweat, etc.

What makes this a bad album is the quality fo the songs. There's not a single song on this album that sounds good, and that's before all the cheesy synth-funk aged it. If you listen to this album without ever having heard any other Bus Boys music it would still strike you as a horrible, horrible mistake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funky Rockin Busboys 4 May 2008
By Maccafan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Here's the real deal, this is one of the Busboys best! Funk rock baby! the first song Never Giving Up starts the album off hard and funky you will not be dissappointed! The songs Hard Work, Meet you At The Top and Change My Condition all rock hard with a funky beat.

The Busboys showing a different side, but it's still a hard rocking side, don't believe anyone that says this album isn't good, this one showcases the funky rockin Busboys! Buy it, crank it, and you'll fall in love with it!!

It's February 2, 2013 and this album is better than ever!!

Don't be fooled, this album rocks, yes it is funkier but it still rocks and rocks hard!

The quality of the songs are just fine in fact some of the best songs by the Busboys! Listen to a song like Change My Condition and tell me the boys aren't rocking!

Look do yourself a favor, get this and find out for yourself!!
