2005 is a milestone year for Status Quo and sees them mark an incredible forty years of making music. The band have now signed to Sanctuary Records and release their latest album, The Party Ain't Over Yet. Quo have also been headlining huge shows and festivals across the UK and Europe, as well as preparing for a truly unique appearance--on legendary UK TV soap Coronation Street. October sees the start of the much-anticipated 35 date UK Winter tour.

The album is nothing if not varied, and sometimes it works. There is a mixture of pop, rock and some country-esque sounds. Where the album goes mostly wrong are the numbers NOT written by Quo, instead written by John David. These are title track and lead single 'Party Ain't Over Yet' and 'All That Counts Is Love'. Both these songs sound almost identical but neither are very good; I wouldn't mind the middle-of-the-road style too much if the melodies were catchy, unfortunately they are plain boring.
Dipping in to where the album goes RIGHT, I would say the best are:
The utterly superb 'Gotta Get Up and Go'. Strong boogie and classic melody, if you love the album 'Dog Of Two Head' you will lap this up. Certainly the best here.
'Belavista Man'. Perfect blues song, perfect for Rick Parfitt's raw voice. This is really excellent and very cool....can see this being played live for many years to come. Great riff, great feel, great everything!
I love 'Velvet Train' too, a thundering intro leads into an interesting vocal and this is Quo rocking like they should. It's not heavy but doesn't need to be. Good and catchy, nice fast tempo and great musicianship all round.
'Goodbye Baby' is a simple rock n roll number in the style of 'Bye Bye Johnny' and 'Carol'. It won't win awards for originality but who cares - this is rock n roll by numbers and is very welcome, especially compared to the John David tracks!
'You Never Stop' is in the top 3 best from this album (with the first two I mentioned).Read more ›
The album confirms Quo's return part way towards what they did so well in the 1970s though it's unlikely they'll ever make it all the way back. Even so, they're still making far more exciting rock music than the rest. At first, I judged this a somewhat patchy effort and it does contain the odd lapse into the old pop territory of the 1980s/90s. But after I loaded it on to the ipod to sit alongside a few dozen albums by other rock bands, I discovered it in a new light. Playing the tracks at random, I was struck by just how stuffy everything else sounded. Even the lesser Quo tracks were like a breath of fresh air. There is a freedom about this music that defies the chuntering music journalists, most of whom, let's face it, haven't a clue. If they can't analyse it, they don't like it.
So, what's so good about this? Quo being Quo yet again, of course. "Gotta Get Up And Go" is a tight, infectious number. You think, I've heard them do something like this before and I can't put my finger on it, but who cares? The Quo catalogue is like an extended family, songs that are warm and familiar with one another. That family is greatly extended here, though on a few tracks, Quo have included on or two novel touches. The hell-for-leather opening to the superb "Velvet Train" for one. They even let Andy Bown loose with the harmonica.Read more ›
