just supposin they'd tried harder....
on 10 February 2010
Having purchased all the Quo albums from Rockin' All Over The World onwards on the day of issue,this was the first i was actually disappointed in,really disappointed,this is really poor ,a pale shadow of what went before..
The trade's description act could have been utilised here as this is such a poor copy of the Quo i know and love.
Yet it all starts so well with the absolute classic 'What your Proposin' but its short lived with the excreable 'Run To Mummy'- pass the sick bag ,while 2nd rate copycat tunes like 'Lies & over the edge' highlight how far standards had dropped ,the only brightspot being the superb 'Dont Drive My Car' showing that they could change tact and get it right when they put their heart and soul into it.Wild Ones/Name Of The Game are just bland with 'Rock N Roll purile,only 'Coming And Going' holding its head above the parapet as real Quo.
Bonus Track : A B Blues a fantastic instrumental which is superior to almost everything on the album,clearly it was at odds with the rest of the disc and didnt fit,a hark back to the days when they cared.
Ultimately this was a flawed,misguided disc rushed out,it would only be approx 5 months before the next release,the superior 'Never Too Late',its a pity they didnt hang fire and hold back the best of this album and ,those coupled, with the better tracks on Never Too Late would have resulted in a sure fire classic,still thats the benefit of hindsight,for completists only
