iTunes Review

“Roll with the Changes” features one of the most scorching guitar tracks in all of rock ’n’ roll. Filled with tortured notes and beautiful droning harmonics, Gary Richrath’s six-string performance soars and kicks, giving the song true rock ’n’ roll chutzpah. Much of the album is like that: Richrath rocked the ballads that singer Kevin Cronin wrote, while Cronin sweetened the rockers that Richrath penned (though “Runnin’ Blind” careens as if Cronin is hanging on for dear life). Cronin’s songs got the girls and Richrath’s got the boys. That was a golden combination: this 1978 album was their first to enter the American Top 40, and it sold more than 2 million copies. “Time for Me to Fly” launched the band into the mainstream rock pantheon. Yet there’s plenty of great stuff here that never made the radio. There’s a Richrath instrumental (“The Unidentified Flying Tuna Trot”) that’s as close to arena-rock boogie-woogie as you’ll likely ever get, and the finale, “Say You Love Me or Say Goodnight,” plays like standoff between Cronin and Richrath, a piano-guitar duel to the end.

Stranded on an island

I've always said that if i was stranded on a desert island with only five albums, this would be one of them. It is pure musicianship from start to frenetic finish. The interaction of voice, guitar, piano and sax is pure bliss. If you like great musicians (Rush, Yes, Kansas) serving up your rock and roll, then don't miss out on this serving. It is a rare treat to get a glimpse of young musicians who have played so much together that they seem to read each others minds. Give this a go...and thank you Kevin, Gary and Neil

You Can Tune A Piano,But You Can't Tune a Fish

I grew up with this album, actually 8 track, that played and played all day while we played hockey in a friends basement. This is their hard rocking breakout album that launched their carreer. To this day, Roll With The Changes and Time For Me To Fly are 2 of my favorite songs of all time. While High Infidelity won best album of the year (more pop than rock), this is a better album.

Three bands were the undisputed arena rock kings of the early '80s -- Styx, Journey, and REO Speedwagon -- yet all weren't overnight success stories (in fact, each group began pursuing different musical styles originally -- prog rock, fusion, and straight-ahead hard rock, respectively, before transforming slowly into chart-topping mainstream rockers). REO Speedwagon first formed in 1968, via a pair of University of Illinois students, keyboardist Neal Doughty and drummer Alan Gratzer. After graduation,...
