Status Quo: Just Supposin'

Sound — 10
Great. As per usual. Frame's and Rick's teles create the perfect sound here. And of course it's where "What You're Proposin" came from. All appear on the album as well as (if you have the remastered CD) the instrumental AB Blues. An utterly unique track with a very raw sound. Quo are in their prime here pushing the shuffle technique as far as it'll go. Great.

Lyrics — 7
Well I say it all the time but the Quo have this habit of putting a song on every album that is as cheesy as they come. "Run To Mummy", in this case, is the one. For example: "She runs to mummy when she comes over funny, and she really isn't bothered at all". Well you get the idea. However some of the songs contain killer lyrics such as "Name Of The Game". A well balanced album in that respect.

Overall Impression — 9
As well as an ace cover, this CD is the perfect gift for Fathers day (or Mothers Day for that matter) cause it kicks ass, old school. It's vital to the collection and is easy listening anywhere, anytime for anybody. Except those bloody chavs. Has anyone got a shotgun? Oh sorry. As a guitarist, bassist or pianist you need this CD. The monarchs of rock 'n' roll are going to show you how it's done!
