Album Review

As soon as REO Speedwagon's second album — aptly titled T.W.O. — kicks off with "Let Me Ride," it's clear that the band has made some significant strides in gaining a personality. Part of this is due to singer Terry Luttrell being swapped out for Kevin Cronin, whose keening tenor is markedly different from Luttrell's bluesy gargle, and part is due to three of the songs, dramatic multi-sectioned rockers, being more distinguished than the pedestrian boogie of the debut. That boogie hasn't been abandoned — the group takes the swing out of Chuck Berry's "Little Queenie," which brings it closer to the anonymous thud that characterizes Gary Richrath's "Flash Tan Queen," along with much of the rest of the album. Although REO don't always succeed when opening up their music — "Being Kind (Can Hurt Someone Sometimes)" winds up getting stuck in the murk — Cronin's two side-openers of "Let Me Ride" and "Music Man" point the way toward the group's classic sound.

Customer Reviews

JLo

A must have for all REO fans. Kevin's voice was much lower in tone and there were not too many effects, except for some subtle reverb on some songs, put on his voice back then. The sound was a classic midwest sound and of course it sounds nothing like the REO of the 80's and 90's, but that is OK. It's good to hear something different. Golden Counrty is truly a masterpiece, especially the beginning of the song. The song still connects with things that are happenning in our world today. One of REO's heaviest songs! A must have for the incredible price!

Good songs great singer

Second album the band produced most of the songs like golden country were written on the bands college campus and Kevin's voice is much stronger sounding here than it is on there later albums with him on lead vocals and much deeper another big hit that is a must have is like you do this is the only album of theirs on iTunes that you can get a studio version of golden country and like you do I'm only a eighteen year old teenager but I love old rock music especially reo speedwagon golden country tells about some of what is going on in today's world it's a must have album to add to your collection of reo speedwagons

Suggestion..

This is the only REO Speedwagon album to buy, I have listened to it on LP, Cassette and CD. These are great songs recorded when they were still hungry for success. Forget the Pop crap from the '80's and the Spinal Tap version of the band that still records and shows up to play at every "Taste of" or "Fest" in every town in the Midwest.

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,...
