One of the great new wave/early MTV records, She’s So Unusual is a giddy mix of self-confidence, effervescent popcraft, unabashed sentimentality, subversiveness, and clever humor. In short, it’s a multifaceted portrait of a multifaceted talent, an artist that’s far more clever than her thin, deliberately girly voice would indicate.

The One That You Love was Air Supply’s second international release and perhaps their finest all-around studio outing, spawning three top ten hits, including a number one with the heart-wrenching title track. The sheer drama of “Here I Am” and the swooping orchestration of “Sweet Dreams” complete this smash-hit trilogy, and as suggested by their name, a sense of air and space pervades other pop-tastic ballads such as “This Heart Belongs to Me” and “Keeping the Love Alive.” This is definitely the ideal second step for those looking beyond the greatest-hits package.

The title was a promise to themselves, Wham!’s assurance that they would make it big after struggling out of the gates the first time out. They succeeded on a grander scale than they ever could have imagined, conquering the world and elsewhere with this effervescent set of giddy new wave pop-soul, thereby making George Michael a superstar and consigning Andrew Ridgeley to the confines of Trivial Pursuit.

Jackson Browne albums don’t come around all that often anymore. During his prolific years in the 1970s and ’80s, he had plenty to say and said it with the sensitivity and poetic candor that is his stock-in-trade. Released in July 2021, Downhill from Everywhere is Browne’s fourth studio album since the turn of the millennium, and it’s a pretty good one.

This is the ultimate Neil Diamond record. Not necessarily the best — he’s at his most appealing crafting in the studio — but certainly the ultimate, capturing all the kitsch and glitz of Neil Diamond, the showman. And that also means that it’s not just loaded with flair, but with filler, songs like “Porcupine Pie,” “Soggy Pretzels,” and “And the Grass Won’t Pay No Mind” — attempts to write grand, sweeping epics that collapse under their own weight. Still, that’s part of the charm of Diamond and while it can sound unbearable on studio albums, it makes some sense here, surrounded by his pomp and circumstance.

As the youngest brother of the massively popular Gibb siblings, otherwise known as the Bee Gees, it’s no wonder that Andy Gibb was a superstar in his own right. An accomplished vocalist and writer, Gibb shot to the top of the charts with his 1977 debut Flowing Rivers. Shadow Dancing, released just one year later, effortlessly confirmed his ascension to the top of the pop pedestal. Working with his brothers again, Gibb wowed audiences with his easy-on-the-ears passionate pop. Continue reading “Andy Gibb – Shadow Dancing (1978) [Japan, CD-Quality + Hi-Res Vinyl Rip]”
