HUEY LEWIS & THE NEWS Greatest Hits EMI 362 9962 (2006)

Huey Lewis

Huey Lewis & the News found huge chart success in the 80's but since then seemed to have disappeared from view bar in their native US where they had a hit in 2000 with 'Crusin' (a duet featuring actress Gwyneth Paltrow).

There are 21 tracks here including 'The Power of Love', 'Stuck With You' and the aptly titled 'Hip To Be A Square'. Sadly though the band do have a few misses with the very syrupy 'Doing It All For My Baby'.

They are much better at the upbeat pop tunes like 'The Heart of Rock 'n' Roll or 'Do You Believe In Love'.

Huey Lewis and his band certainly had the commercial success but never quite seem to get the critical acclaim they deserve. A very well rounded compilation and one worth investing in.

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
