CD Reviews

Soulful pop
Pieter | Johannesburg | 06/27/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Trinidadian Billy Ocean's accessible blend of soul and pop gave him plenty of top ten hits. My favourites here include Love Really Hurts Without You and the unforgetable Red Light Spells Danger, a huge hit in about 1977. He had the perfect pop sensibility, underpinned by soulful vocals and helped by superb production. His 1980s hits like (When The Going Gets Tough) The Tough Get Going and Get Outa My Dreams, Get Into My Car are slick and smooth, typical of the dance music of the 1980s but with added soul that have made them stand the test of time very well. This album is not comprehensive - the major omission being Caribbean Queen, but still a good collection of melodic songs from the 1970s and 80s and worth it just for Red Light alone.
