Ok here's the scoop:

I heard the album from a friend who had picked it up and I must say that if you love Fore, Sports, and Picture This (and Hard at Play which I forgot about) you might be a little dissapointed in the new album.

It's definitely stripped back, sounds like a live intimate concert, and is really missing that big 80's sound that we know from Huey Lewis. I liken it mostly to the four new tracks they released on their greatest hits album. So if you like those (100 Years From Now was cool) this is basically the same sound.

Also: there is definitely more blues and r&b than the guys have ever exhibited before. The first single is great as well as a couple other tracks but nothing really sticks in your head like the songs they're known for in the 80's. THERE IS NO POWER OF LOVE HERE! Still, Lewis has a voice that's pretty infectious, so if you own everything else, you might as well pick this up too.

I was kinda hoping for a big production job and a return to that BIG ROCK sound that made them huge. But oh well...
