He The Gloved one.
Back when E.C. Rocked..
The 70's and 80's were Clapton's heydey of Slowhand's career, through the years people evolve and so did Clapton and his music, unfortunately most of his album's post '90 and into the millenium his albums have mellowed and have been more 'bluesy', if you like that it's great, but if you like rock/pop from "god" you needn't buy anything post '90.. Many reviews here are correct, this album is one of Eric's best, so much energy and almost every song rocks and is addictive. From the 1st track from the movie "Color of Money" through the album leaves you wanting more of the same style of music.. 70s/80s were great for the billboards for Clapton and this one is spectacular, only Behind the Sun and Journeyman are worthy contenders but this one has the most energy..
You should have this album
this is by far my favorite Clapton album, Bad Influence is my all time favorite song. Stong vocals and great gituar work, no dissapointments. thanks Eric
Best EC Solo Album
Song-for-song this is the top Clapton solo album. Far more energy than "Behind the Sun", this collection of original music reflects the 80s keyboard-heavy sound while giving plenty of room for Clapton's solid guitar work. Also, his vocals are clear and command a high range to make each song distinctive and a true joy to listen. MTV assisted in success of this album with several videos including the movie-clip video from the Tom Cruise/Paul Newman film "It's In The Way That You Use It" Each of these songs translated well in concert (although he rarely sings them on tour anymore). But, you can check them out on "24 Nights", the concert compilation.
This is by far my favorite Clapton CD. I love it from start to finish. Totally underrated.
By goats rule
Underated clapton album!
