iTunes Review

1979’s Secrets was a stylistic departure for Robert Palmer, who up to that point had released a string of superb albums featuring some of the best R&B and funk players in the business. Though Palmer remained an R&B vocalist at heart, Secrets shows a more rock-oriented edge than its predecessors, as evidenced by its leadoff single, “Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor).” His newly pared-down band and aggressive attack immediately paid off with chart success, as the taut “Jealous” also became a sizable hit. Though some newcomers may have mistaken Palmer for a contemporary of Elvis Costello, he was by no means selling out his love for music. Even as it amps up his delivery, Secrets touches on the styles that had been his passion since the late '60s: reggae (“Under Suspicion,” “What’s It Take”), New Orleans soul (“In Walks Love Again”), and stinky, sticky funk (“Too Good to Be True”). With its fusion of dagger-sharp rhythms and a Beatles-esque melody, “Remember to Remember” proves to be not only one of the album’s highlights but a concise example of Palmer’s knack for crossbreeding musical philosophies.

The career of blue-eyed soul singer Robert Palmer was a study in style versus substance. While the performer's earliest work won praise for its skillful assimilation of rock, R&B, and reggae sounds, his records typically sold poorly, and he achieved his greatest notoriety as an impeccably dressed lounge lizard. By the mid-'80s, however, Palmer became a star, although his popularity owed less to the strength of his material than to his infamous music videos: taking their cue from the singer's suave...
