A nice compliment to News, a little more mature, but slightly less fun overall.
In '86, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself.
I also have the European version of this album with 'Power of Love'. A great pop rock album with a feel good factor. Remember listening to this on the radio when on the way back from the beach on a balmy summer evening. Back in the days when the most difficult decision I had to make was which shirt to wear to the nightclub!
This is one of those instances when an artist was able to follow-up a smash hit album and replicate all the components for nearly as good of an album. Huey Lewis and the boys come back with more singalong pop/rock melodies again adding their flourishes of horns and harmonica. My rating (and ranking) reflects the european version including "the power of love"; with this fun, rockin' soundtrack theme to "back to the future", this might be better than "Sports"!
