This is a brilliant release by The Hooters. The album has only nine tracks, understandably about normal in the "Vinyl Era".
No wonder no less than 4 songs are on compilation, "Hooterization : A Retrospective". The Hooters are certainly at the top of their game on this album. A must for anyone who enjoys their music.
One of the great rocks bands around, I liked theri music, down to earth and easy to listen to, would like to see more CD come out from the group. Brought back lot's of good memories! Iused to have this album and bought it again as a replacement - even better than I remember.
The Hooters' eclectic mix of folk rock with the new wave and power pop styles in vogue during the 70s and 80s gave them a rich base to draw upon, but it also meant that their material could feature a great deal of nice-sounding wandering in search of the structure behind a great song.
This album in particular suffers from a sort of pleasant mediocrity that's fine to listen to but lacks passion. One gets the sense that the Hooters want to write a release with one "And We Danced"-level pop jam after another but things keep falling more or less flat. The title track and "Engine " are both great examples of this problem. On the plus side, though, the album features a fairly solid opening in "Satellite".
A religiously-tinged track fueled by a punchy, synthpop-esque sound, its lyrics can be interpreted equal parts as a satire of televangelists and an genuine expression of offbeat devotion. The optimistic rocker "Washington's Day" is also a particular highlight, the band bringing in criminally underrated singer-songwriter Willie Nile to get a special spark. It feels wrong to bash the album too much, and the group likely is a victim of high expectations leading to equally high maybe even unfair expectations.
In the end, the release itself is worth picking up, but don't expect to get wowed by more than a few songs on it.
