This is so good, fantastic beats, great vibes, and that wonderful voice on top. At first, it felt like a shame to have to wait through the whole album to get to One Love, but then it turns out the rest of the album is great too. I did have Jamming stuck in my head for a significant amount of time, but there are worse songs to keep bursting into! Loved it.

Rockin' All Over the World by Status Quo

Rockin' All Over the World by Status Quo

My dad pointed out that I hadn’t listened to any Status Quo during this album adventure, so I put it on the list and snapped it up straight away. I know a couple of the more famous songs, and know of the ‘Quo for opening up on Live Aid, but otherwise I’ve not given them too much thought previously. It’s quite a good album, this one, the nice thing about Status Quo is they have a guitar style that you can instantly recognise. In the same way you know Johnny Cash from his train style beats, Quo have that riff that you can shake your shoulders at and the theme continues through the whole album. Fun!

Mr C was quite shocked that I hadn’t listened to any Clash so far in this album journey, so we rectified that quite quickly. I was a bit nervous going into it because these are the absolute pinnacle of punk, what if I didn’t like it? Not to worry, I did. The only downside to it is that the songs are all pretty similar, you jump on board the Clash vibe and that sustains you to the end.

Yay for going back to the start of the great Lionel Richie’s career. Of course, here he is with his Commodore friends, and that means some great soul music, excellent vocals and a really short but sweet album.

What’s amazing about this album is how you can see the effort and crafting gone in to it. Not all to my taste, but the bizarre mix means there’s got to be something to like.
