Avis sur l’album

Sandwiched in between 1977's African Queen LP and their stint with the Village People on that band's Can't Stop the Music soundtrack, the Ritchie Family delivered a punchy Bad Reputation in 1979. With Jacques Morali taking full control, the band broke away from both the Marlin label and longtime producer Ritchie Rome to record for Casablanca. And despite the fresh approach — this album looks more like a Village People LP than a Ritchie Family concept album — the band's star power plummeted. The LP didn't crack the charts, nor did any of the songs straggle in for a single in its wake.

The supremely sassy "Where Are the Men," on the other hand, was classic, pure disco in the same vein as the band's early era output. And anyone looking for the now familiar Ritchie Family disco medley would find comfort in the 11 minute "It's a Man's World." Although there are some inspired nuggets to be unearthed here, Bad Reputation ultimately suffered in the wake of Rome's departure, as the band dramatically shifted from one groove to another, leaving their die-hard fans wondering why they never received that memo.
