this sucks shit

Despite what the lineup says, Kevin Cronin is not on this album at all. Michael Murphey is the singer, and he's OK... nothing special. This album does not "suck shit" like the above comment says. It ain't great, but there are a few highlights. "Throw the Chains Away" is a good rockin' song and "Down By the Dam" is one of those story songs that were so popular in the early 70s. This doesn't compare to the stuff they did with Kevin Cronin, but its not a complete waste.

REO used Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young producer Bill Halverson to produce this album, with a guest appearance by Sylvester "Sly Stone" Stewart. Bruce Hall, who co-wrote the title track with Mike Murphy, joined the band after bassist Gregg Philbin quit in 1977. Michael Martin Murphey does not appear on this album at all. However, Mike Murphy does appear, and his vocals were the reason REO initially charted on Billboard. Standouts on this album: Wild As The Western Wind (vocals, Gary Richrath).

A disappointing one considering the good sound of the previous disc. Still, a must have for any fan of these guys. Cronin will soon liven' it up and set the pace.

From: bmoviecritic Date: August 5, 2019 at 2:14
First disappointing album by the band, not much focus, the songwriting delivers few hooks, it's way inferior to the classic album that came prior in Riding the Storm Out. The whole album plays like a bunch of B-sides.
