The Closest He Came
Former Archivist General of the Uni | Bridgewater, NJ | 05/01/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At one time it was rumoured that Robert Palmer wanted to be the new "Thin White Duke", a reference to David Bowie. This is the closest he came. He achieves a sound here that is dynamic, fresh and at the same time referential to traditional rock, blues and dance. It reminds me of David Bowie of the "Station to Station" through the "Let's Dance" period, which is my favorite. Robert was really onto something here, but by the time he hit with "Addicted to Love" and "Simply Irresistable", this kind of musical experimentation was gone. Too bad."
Best Ever!!

"This was the one that got me listening to Roberts stuff back in 1979. Since then i've bought everything i can and apart from a couple of tracks i havent been too dissapointed. Looking for clues is a fantastic track with an even better Video"
Robert Palmer's Best Album
M. L. Whitlock | Germantown, MD | 02/18/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1980 Island Records release by the late Robert Palmer may be his best album. There are no bad cuts. You can put it on and enjoy it all the way through. The highlights are "Johnny and Mary," but it helps if your system has good bass response. "I Dream of Wires" is a Gary Numan technopop song. "Woke up Laughing" is a high energy, reggae infused comment on life with a sudden serious ending (just like life itself). "Not a Second Time" is an updated cover of a John Lennon song from the "Meet the Beatles" album. Finally there's "Found You Now," a enchanting love song. I miss Palmer's wonderful voice and influential rock music. This album was his best just before he hit it big on MTV."
