CD Reviews

Pablo Cruise matures a bit and this effort is tremendous!
NHgboy | Newport, NH United States | 05/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The "hit", of course, on this album was the disco-rock "I Want You Tonight". That song was a "nod" to the times (late 1970's). The remaining tracks, however, are more sophisticated and demonstrate good song-writing, great vocals and harmonies, and some emotional depth. For example, "Giving It Away", starts out as a terse poem, but slowly develops into a heart-achingly beautiful song. The title cut is infectious. "Tell Me That You Love Me" is an emotional plea with a great hook. "How Many Tears" is also memorable. If my memory serves, most of the tracks are long (over 5 minutes, I believe) and were clearly not aimed as pop/charting singles. It is evident that the band enjoyed making this album."
Parting ways with the "Beach Sound" provides a tension

"On this album they were clearly trying different things.Some of it sounds like TOTO, some sounds like Ambrosia.Gone is the Jimmy Buffett style they had unconsciously attained on the first 4 albums.This album is not about escapism like their previous ones, this album is very much a sign of the times in 1979.It has a 1979 gas-shortage,Ford vs.Japan,bad economy tension to it.I liked I Want You Tonight when it first came out,but like all disco, it got old real quick!The track that I love on this album is For Another Town.That song makes this album great.Even if this is my least favorite by the group, I applaud them for moving in a different direction.P.S. this is the greatest album cover in the history of album covers!!!"
Ahhh...The California Beach Rock & Soul Sound (Late 70's)

"Pablo Cruise, much like Player, proved that white guys could have soul to go with their rock. While many die-hard Pablo Cruise fans may not regard this as their best album, it definitely moved towards a more funkified sound. Lead guitarist and vocalist David Jenkins sings with soulful finesse on the track Givin' It Away. P.C. then brings things to an upbeat melodic pace with Tell Me That You Love Me(listen to that guitar strumming in the opening).The tune Lonely Nights is accentuated with some rapid piano and synth playing to denote the desperation felt in the meaning of the lyrics about a man needing his woman (or vice -versa). How Many Tears has a Fleetwood Mac-like intro with Nicks and Buckingham undertones. No more mellow-like Jimmy Buffet sounding tunes. One can feel the positive and fun filled energy these guys must have had making this album back in 78-79 !"
