Album Review

FM's mid-'70s music focused heavily on the progressive rock end of the musical spectrum, while their transition into the '80s found them slowly drifting into pop/rock, customizing their songs to be radio friendly. Tonight has this Toronto foursome (who were a threesome in their prog days) laying out a handful of keyboard-shimmering pop songs that put good use to instruments rarely found on three minute banters. Nash the Slash, the notorious lead singer who always appears wrapped in bandages, plays electric mandolin, mandola, and bouzouki, giving each tune some instrumental dimension. Songs like "Dream Girl" and "Magic (In Your Eyes)" possess sweet harmonies thanks to Cameron Hawkins' assistance on vocals. Hawkins is the only remaining member from FM's start up in 1977, and adds his delicate keyboard work to every tune on the album. The last five songs on the album were added from an earlier album entitled Con-test, including the chilly sounding "Just Like You" and the entertaining "Why Don't You Take It," which has the stern sounding Nash in command. Tonight has a generous amount of average sounding pop music, but one may feel this band turned to this route just to stay alive, especially after hearing them in their progressive prime.

Customer Reviews

Shoulda been Nash The SMASH !!!

While I agree that Black Noise is phenomenal,to sell this record short is a mistake.It's just a different approach,admittedly right up the 'commercial' river,but great nonetheless.If you hear 'Just Like You' and DON'T think it could've been a Top Ten record (and NOT just in Canada) then your tin ear needs a cleaning.Cameron Hawkins is a GREAT singer,Martin Dellar a perfect beat man,and,well,there's Nash ,now isn't there? This should've made them rich rock stars.THAT'S the only shame about this record.

Finally

Finally, some FM & Nash the Slash on iTunes. Of course, very few people know who either one is, but to those who do, it's a true gem of past years' music.

Not their best

I love FM, but this is my least favorite of their albums. Even their live album is better (actually, it's quite good, if you can find it). iTunes needs to get Black Noise, Surveillance and City of Fear. I would give all of those albums 5 stars. Not a clunker in the bunch.
