Tricky one this. Quo's latest offering leaves me with mixed emotions, and emotion is certainly the word as a long standing fan eagerly anticipating each new release.

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).

I saw Quo last night at Hull City Hall and they still generate an energy, excitement and togetherness that's unique. The place was packed and jumping. Indeed, jump was virtually all you could do. The only space left was overhead. Quo only played a couple of songs from this album, the title track, which sounded far better live, and "Belavista Man", a typical rocker, which didn't.
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.

The fact that Status Quo can deliver an album of this quality after around 40 years in the business is quite something. This really is a cracker! From the first track, it'll have you bouncing around the room and scaring the family pets. The song writing is excellent and there are some classics here - 'The Party Ain't Over Yet', 'The Bubble', 'Familiar Blues', 'All That Counts as Love' and 'Belavista Man' are really good songs, tightly played and delivered as one might expect. 'Familiar Blues' surprises with its acoustic opening and then kicks into a strong country blues number. Status Quo are far from finished in the business when they can deliver an album of this fine quality. The title says it all!

I have been a quo fan from my school days (and taken the stick that goes with it). We fell out during their karaoke phase during the 80s and early 90s but I redescovered them with the the excellent Under the Influence and Heavey Traffic albums. This one stacks up well against those, a bit less variation but gets better each time you listen to it. Of the 13 tracks "All that counts is love" is a bit limp as is Cupid Stupid but the rest are good solid tracks. The highlights are "Gotta Get Up and Go", the best Rossi song for ages, "The Bubble" which is catchy and "Kick me When I'm Down" with its driving back beat. Best of all they sound like a band that is enjoying their work with the writing honors shared around, the playing tight and a sense of fun that always marked quo out as a band that did not take themselves too seriously.
