Reseña de álbum

Canadian power trio Goddo was by no means a one-hit wonder band, but for all intents and purposes it was a one-hit single band. That single was 1981's "Pretty Bad Boy," the title cut — minus a pluralizing "s" — of the group's fourth studio album. Bouncing along to a jaunty beat, buoyed by jangly guitars and a rollicking piano, and topped with a smirking, sing-along chorus and cutey-pie child vocals, "Pretty Bad Boy" was the song that finally put this long-serving outfit on the Canadian radio charts. A lucky break, no doubt, but likely not a complete fluke; judging by the tone of the rest of Pretty Bad Boys, it seems obvious bassist, singer, and songwriter Greg Godovitz was angling for a hit. The ten-song album is Goddo's most mainstream effort to that point. Godovitz reins in his rockstar posturing and classical flourishes, aiming instead for solid pop/rock singles with crunchy guitar licks and lyrical hooks. Usually, his efforts pay off. "Forget About Forgetting," "Feeling Strange Today," "Am I Crazy, Crazy?!?," and "Vampire Eyes" are all hard-edged post-new wave rockers, propelled by four-on-the-floor beats from drummer Doug Inglis and chugging guitars from Gino Scarpelli. "Let's Talk It Over," meanwhile, features another of Godovitz' big, ringing riffs, augmented by harmonies borrowed from the Yardbirds' "For Your Love." Even "Shooting Stars," a quirky little slice of ennui with lilting Caribbean overtones, is reasonably enjoyable. All in all, a pretty good effort. Unfortunately, it turned out to be their last album for a decade. Two years after this album, the band underwent the first of several breakups.

"If indeed it is lonely at the top, who cares," quipped Goddo on its second album. "It's lonely at the bottom, too." That rusty one-liner could have been the band's motto. It succinctly sums up not only the tumultuous career of this long-serving, hard-rocking Canadian power trio, but also the fatalistic humor with which the group viewed the whole affair. Goddo's technicolor dreams of global domination never came true, but that never seemed to stop the band from enjoying its decades-long rollercoaster...
