"With Joe Tansin no longer gumming up the works, Evans/Molland managed to put together a pretty good album. While Airwaves sounded to cater to radio listeners, Say No More is pure rock. That's not to mean that this is a hard-rocking album--Badfinger sounds overall as poppy as ever on this one. However, there is nary a ballad to be found here (though a couple of the lighter songs come close) and the production barely sounds "80's" on most of the tracks.
Say No More honestly isn't a GREAT collection of songs and the best ones don't stand out TOO much, but what it IS is a solid album, which is more than what can be said about its predecessor. It doesn't stand up too strongly next to Badfinger's "classic" albums, but it is definately a worthwhile listen."

"The Badfinger line-up that recorded "Airwaves" had already disbanded before the album was released. For "Say No More" Tom Evans and Joey Molland had brought together another strong version of Badfinger. Tony Kaye ( known from Yes) played the keyboards, Glen Sherba played guitars, Richard Bryans played drums and Tom and Joey played their usual bass and guitar. This album would be the last Badfinger album; Tony Kaye and Tom Evans actually did rehearse for a second Radio Records album, but nothing came out of that.Their ideas for "Say No More" was to produce a rock album; not so slick and commercial as "Airwaves". Unfortunately the material on the album is not up to the same standards as its predecessor. A few strong tracks can be found here, though. "Too Hung Up On You" by Tom Evans is the outstanding track on the album; to my ears the only song where the vocals sound like classic Badfinger. "Hold On" is a good song too; it actually was a minor hit. Some of Joey Mollands songs also rocks nicely!"
Badfinger........Say No More

"An ironic title to this last release by Tom and Joey together. This time they did what they liked to do, pull out all the stops. This was strickly high energy with the most outrageous lead guitar ever on a Badfinger release, provided by Glenn Sherba. Fantastic keyboards were also added by Tony Kaye and the great songwriting of Tom and Joey continued. If "Airwaves" didnt convince you that Tom and Joey were back, "Say No More" should have. "Say No More" was an excellent final release that didnt get the attention it truly deserved."
