A True Classic

""The Living Years" is probably the best Mike & the Mechanics album, thanks mostly to the title track. For years, I've known the song but could never figure out who the band was until I read a few reviews here on [...] and then I went ahead and got it. After a complete listen of the album, I can say this is one the best albums of all time.

Of course, the self- titled "Living Years" is the standout, the soft rock song sung by Paul Carrack with that unforgettable choir that comes in during the chorus. Carrack also contributes to the "Sledgehammer"-like "Don't", "Nobody Knows," and the dark yet powerful song "Why me?" Good news if you're a Paul Young fan, because he does much more of the singing on this album. From "Nobody's Perfect" to "Beautiful Day," each song is hard-edged rock (compared to the first album) and demonstrates the talent of Paul Young. "Poor Boy Down" "Blame" and "Black and Blue" are some of the best songs ever made. If you like 80's music or just adult contemporary in general, these songs will make your day. From beginning to end, I enjoyed this album and have no negatives to say about it.

In addition to "The Living Years," I recommend their first self-titled debut, "Beggar on a Beach of Gold" and "Word of Mouth." Try them all and you just might surprised what you're missing. "The Living Years" is a must-have for every fan of music.

The "Mad Mind" has spoken."
