5.0 out of 5 stars Like a great whiskey, just getting better with age! Power Pop of the highest order!, 27 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Songs For The End Of The World (Audio CD)
I have been listening to Rick Springfield since the late 70s (when I was 10!) and have always been a big fan of his power pop. I can honesty say that this is without doubt the best album he has ever done. He stills sounds relevant, in touch with modern music without losing his own musical personality. Karma was a very good album, Venus in Overdrive was excellent but this betters it again. I was always so annoyed people referred to Rick as a poor man' s Springsteen purely because of the similarity in the surnames. Rick was never a purveyor of Bruce's heartland blue collar music and so neither deserved comparison to each other. Rick should be compared to fellow power popsters like Big Star, The Raspberries etc and this album can easily hold a candle to the best of the modern power pop luminaries (who I also love) like Fountains of Wayne, Nada Surf, Sloan, Candy Butchers, the Posies, Jellyfish, Tinted Windows, Teenage Fanclub etc. I would love to see Rick collaborate with Adam Schlesinger from FofW as they could produce something quite special. Buy it and forget what you think you know about Rick Springfield!
