"The J. Geils Band recorded 15 albums (not counting compilations) over 28 years.
Released some two years after the band's EMI debut, Sanctuary, the Love Stinks project would see the J. Geils Band going in an even more commercial oriented direction than its predecessor. Keyboard player/main songwriter, Seth Justman now assumed the main production duties. Justman set out to better the band's gold-plus-selling Sanctuary. And to some degree, he succeeded. Although not as consistent or diverse as Sanctuary, Love Stinks would feature two of the band's most recognizable FM songs ever -- the album's infectious title track "Love Stinks" and the catchy up tempo "Come Back"."
Comfort music that won't disappoint

"This was released right before they completely busted out into the mainstream with Freeze Frame. As a whole, this is a great release, not a lot of strong songs, but all songs are very listenable...you won't find yourself skipping through the songs as you listen to this. Overall, a must for any collection."
