"that one song: "Some days were meant for rain" is worth the cost of the cd. Tower of Power has always had a great lead singer, too bad they never seem to keep them and they don't sing their best R & B songs in concert; however, you must buy this cd for that great song."
This IS the 80's

"I admit this disc was disappointing at first. I huge leap from the TOP I was familiar with. But I tell you what...It sure grew on me. The tunes on Power are the epitome of the 80's. Several of the tracks sound like they could have come from the soundtrack of Lucas. Hey, it's a little cheesy. Don't crank it from your car with the windows down, but get past the cheesiness and enjoy it. There are still a lot of great horn arrangements here. And Rocco, on "Count on Me"... giving those fingers a serious workout. Some nice guitar leads, also. Not that that's what TOP has traditionally been about, but... So buy it. Complete your collection. Give it a chance, especially if you spent any of your teen years in the 80's."
Buy It For Credit!

"I am a lifelong TOP fan. I own every TOP album. Have seen them live about 50 times. The lead singer here, Ellis Hall, was in my opinion, the best post-Lenny Williams frontman they ever had. However, except for the songs "Credit" and "Count On Me", the rest of this is dispensible. "Credit" alone, makes this worth having."
Credit where Credit is due

"If for no other song, Credit is worth having. Sign on the dot! If you're a Tower fan, this is worth having!Saul"
One song, but worth it...

"There is one song on this cd that is worth the price of the CD alone: "Some days were meant for rain" Tower of Power has always had a great lead singer, too bad they can never keep them and they don't sing their best R & B songs when in concert. Buy the cd for that song!"
