Difficult To Please...Ritchie ?
on 9 June 2010
1st let me correct Amazon...J L Turner was NOT Rainbow's final vocalist...That honour goes to Doogie White on the final Rainbow album...Stranger In Us All.
This album is a bit of a mixture, we have the radio friendly
I Surrender , power pop song..Like Since You Been Gone, written by Russ Ballard,
Spotlight Kid, full out rock, and the best song on the album,
No Release..Awful dirge of a song
Magic, another Pop song.. written by Mike Moran,
Maybe Next Time.. a brilliant instrumental .
Can't Happen Here is Rainbow's prophetic protest song, another rocker which hit the singles chart,
Freedom Fighter..medium paced rocker
Midtown Tunnel Vision..again..an awful plodding song
Difficult To Cure ( Beethoven's Ninth ) ends the album..a good reworking by the band, sounds even better Live.
Not Rainbow's best album, but for JLT's debut..more good than bad.
