Rock Candy CANDY009

This 1982 album gets a long overdue CD release, for it's a bit of an undiscovered (certainly underrated) classic. At the height of US AOR and MTV, there are elements of both here and it's a mixture that works surprising well.

Singer Waite has power and range, and lead guitarist Tim Pierce is fast and fluid.

The piano on Mr Wonderful is funky and light hearted before some crunching guitars come in.

There is an element of sameness to the general sound of some of the tracks, as was common with US artists of that era. However, the music is way above average, and it's very well packaged. The lengthy sleevenotes include an essay and track-by-track notes by Waite himself.
