3.0 out of 5 stars The first album for the 'new' Quo!, 27 Mar. 2006
By 
This review is from: In The Army Now (Audio CD)
'In The Army Now' is the first album that Quo made after the split from bassist Alan Lancaster. The results are, unfortunately, rather mixed, and summarily set the tone for the next 15 years.
Overall, the album is really quite good, with some excellent songs. 'Rollin Home' was the first single to be released and went top 10. 'Red Sky' followed, which charted in the top 20. Both of these are very good tunes, despite the poor production letting them down.
Unfortunately, there are also some very poor songs as well, in my view. 'Speechless', 'Invitation' and 'In Your Eyes' are quite frankly sub par, and not worthy of Quo at all.
But the main talking point with this album seems to be the title track: 'In The Army Now' was a smash hit single, but Quo fans in general seem to either love or hate the record. Nevertheless, it provided Quo with their second biggest selling single at that time, like it or not.
I was very surprised, however, when I listened to the bonus tracks. In my view, some of the bonus songs are better than some of the tunes on the actual album, especially 'Lonely', 'Keep Me Guessing' and 'Late Last Night'. Why Quo would have left these three off I will never understand, as I feel the album would have been a lot stronger had they been included.
Overall, 'In The Army Now' isn't bad at all, but to see now how it could have been so much better is disappointing, to say the least - and this too, seems to be a trend that would continue for the next 15 years.
