In the 10 yrs since Quo changed to their harder edged rock sound, the songs changed from the wonderful story telling blues rock of early albums "Quo", "Piledriver" and "Hello" with their complicated guitar/drum interchange, to a softer boogie/rock format, which although not getting the pulse racing in the same way, had its own charm and still maintained the magic that we all loved Quo for.
The fantastic Lancaster/Parfitt/Coghlan driving rhythm is still as sweet as ever but with a more contempary feel. Openers, "Never too Late" and "Something Bowt You Baby I Like" are great pop tunes but with a rock feel to them and most of the following tracks are very credible additions to the album.
But there are 3 absolute belting rock classics on this album. Firstly the Chuck Berry classic "Oh Carol" is wonderful. Played with so much power and passion, it brings a massive smile to my face everytime I hear it. Secondly, "Dont Stop Me Now" is the most infectious guitar hook ever, with a really atmospheric vocal and driving beat from Coghlan, brilliant! But perhaps the best is the final track "Riverside." Naff lyrics but what a song.Read more ›
The title track deals with Francis Rossi's end-of-the-world preoccupation, a common topic in music during the early 1980s. Bizarrely, the sobering lyric is delivered in a jaunty manner.
"Take Me Away" recalls Quo's blinding mid-1970s run of success and deserves a higher profile. "Carol" too is worthy of comparison with their supreme Chuck Berry cover from 1975, "Bye Bye Johnny". Meanwhile, "Falling In Falling Out" is one of the poppier numbers. Though I like the song it isn't what they do best.
The second half consists entirely of tracks that have excelled in retaining their anonymity yet deserve more recognition. "Long Ago" and "Mountain Lady" are substantial rock songs; "Don't Stop Me Now" is one of the highlights of the album, an exciting track; "Enough Is Enough" maintains the adrenalin; and "Riverside" bounds along relentlessly, its circular melody staying with you long after the end.
This isn't one of Quo's best-known albums but it's worth the money. Add it to the list.
Looking back, that is a real shame, because these now often talked about problems seem to overshadow the actual album - which is yet another top class effort.
Indeed, as an album Never Too Late seems to be overlooked by a lot of fans nowadays. Personally, I believe is a very underrated release, with many top drawer songs on it!
With the quality of the tunes on offer here, not for the first time I find myself puzzled as to why only one single was ever released from the album: ('Something Bout You Baby I Like' became another top 10 hit for Quo)
Other excellent songs include the title song, 'Take Me Away', 'Carol', 'Long Ago', 'Enough Is Enough' and 'Riverside' - all of which would have made very good singles IMO!
Unfortunately, with the departure of John Coghlan, Quo seemed to lose their way in more than ways than one as, in my view, Never Too Late was the last classy album that they made for a long time.
Which again is a real shame, as many people now wonder what might have been had Quo been able to resolve all their problems! Would they have been able to maintain the standard that they had set themselves in the 70's? Would the 80's and 90's have gone the same way?
These are questions that nobody can answer! All I know is that, for me, Never Too Late was the last top quality album from Quo for many, many years!
