Album Review

Shaun Cassidy's pop/rock career had effectively peaked when this album appeared, although he was still gamely trying to push the river. Cassidy and songwriter-producer Michael Lloyd certainly pulled out all the stops — no less than 13 different musicians are credited. Cassidy and Lloyd appear among the seven keyboardists, while four different people handle the guitar honors. The problem isn't the production; it's a slick, yet solid exhibit of "late-'70s L.A. sound" that peers like John Stewart and Andrew Gold rode to gold and platinum success. There's pop-tinged disco ("Are You Afraid of Me?," "Time for a Change"), synth-driven balladry ("You Still Surprise Me"), and a nod to Cassidy's rock & roll roots with a slinky remake of "The Letter," given a funkier, conga-accented treatment than the original. The real issue is a lack of distinctive material for Cassidy to call his own. He and Lloyd wrote or co-wrote all but one song — "The Letter" — so they definitely have to shoulder the blame. Cassidy might have had better luck if he'd stuck to his stripped-down guns on "Fallin' Into You" or "Break for the Street," whose crisp delivery and guitar work make them the best moments here. But that's only because of the iffy company that surrounds them, although "You're Usin' Me" benefits from a gritty vocal presumably inspired by hardbitten experience (as half-brother David could attest). "You Still Surprise Me" also brings the album to a strong closing note and awaits the definitive soft rock reading. Almost anyone in Cassidy's position could have made this sort of album, which suffers from a nagging seen-it-all-done-it-all syndrome — which he acknowledged on the new wave gestures of his next album, Wasp.

Customer Reviews


Finally!!! All of Shaun Cassidy's wonderful albums are available on iTunes!!! I love the songs on this album a lot, esp. "Fallin' Into You", "Time For a Change", "Are You Afraid of Me," "The Letter", "You're Usin' Me" and "You Still Suprise Me" (I know that's almost the whole album, but when it comes to Shaun Cassidy, it's hard to pick favorites!!!). I still don't know how to choose a favorite album, because Shaun's other albums with all the fun songs are great too (He wouldn't be Shaun Cassidy without songs like "Da Doo Ron Ron"!!!). Anyway, overall, I love this album... and Shaun Cassidy!!!!!! :)

Underrated Gem

This is by far Shaun's best album. The material is much stronger than his first two albums and his singing is more mature as well. I highly recommned this album. Don't let preconceived ideas of his teen idol status stop you from enjoying some great pop music.

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '70s, '80s

A major teen idol of the late '70s, actor/singer Shaun Cassidy rocketed to fame both on the pop charts and on television, much as his half-brother David Cassidy had done earlier in the decade. The son of actors Jack Cassidy and Shirley Jones, he was born in Hollywood on September 27, 1959, and formed his first band at the age of 11. After signing with Mike Curb's division of Warner Bros. in 1975, Cassidy issued his 1976 debut single, "Morning Girl," which became a major European hit and made the...
