4.0 out of 5 stars Their most accomplished album., 17 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Fore! (Audio CD)
You like Huey Lewis & The News? Their early work was a little too 'new wave' for my taste, but when "Sports" came out in '83 they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear crisp sound and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost! He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humour.
In '86 Huey released this, "Fore!” their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip To Be Square", a song so catchy most people probably don’t listen to the lyrics but they should. Because it’s not just about the pleasures of conformity and the importance of trends, it’s also a personal statement about the band itself.
