Album Review

Although not quite as strong as Save Me, the Silver Convention's self-titled second album is a respectable, if uneven, Euro-disco effort that boasts the disco smash "Get up and Boogie." In the U.S., "Get up and Boogie" was the only tune on the LP that enjoyed a lot of radio airplay. But dance club DJs weren't about to play that single exclusively; they also gave a lot of exposure to high-gloss cuts that range from the lush "San Francisco Hustle" and the mildly funky "No No Joe" to the dreamy "You Got What It Takes (To Please Your Woman)" and the clever "Play Me Like a Yo-Yo." On a few tracks, the Silver Convention tries to demonstrate that it can sing more than Euro-disco. "The Boy With the Ooh La-La" is a playful pop-reggae number, while "Thank You, Mr. D.J." is an unremarkable pop ballad. But Euro-disco is what the Silver Convention did best, and it is the style that dominates this generally decent sophomore effort.
