After the success of Welch's first two albums, 1980's The Other One failed to net him a Top 40 hit, proving that he had to rely on something other than his balmy vocals to see him through. Evidently, the same radio-friendly allure that draped "Sentimental Lady" or anything close to the subtle riff in the chorus of "Ebony Eyes" fails to turn up here, leaving the tracks colorless and quite bland. "Spanish Dancers" and "Hideaway" seem to be the strongest cuts, but even these efforts fall short of Three Hearts' approachability. Welch's writing is mild and flimsy for the most part, and because of this the music wears itself out, teetering on the edge of AM triviality. A few of The Other One's cuts turn up on a number of Welch's compilations, which in turn may be the best way to investigate them. Within the same year, Welch released Man Overboard, an album that is variably stronger than its predecessor, but he still couldn't imitate the strength of his earlier work.

Frank Zappa, for Better or for Laughs

The more time that goes by since Frank Zappa’s passing on December 4, 1993, the more his absence is cruelly felt in the music world. It's not that we have forgotten him, but we have been searching in vain for someone to fill his boots. Frank Zappa’s genius, both cosmic and comical, has no equivalent today, this is because no one, in almost three decades, has been able to combine such a high level of musical talent with such a brilliant sense of humor. Something Zappa did so well.

Back in Black: AC/DC in all Their Glory

With 50 million copies sold, Back in Black is the second best-selling album of all time just behind Michael Jackson’s thriller. Who could have imagined that AC/DC’s seventh studio album would pick up so many awards considering their charismatic lead-singer Bon Scott’s premature death after the release of Highway to Hell. The album marked the end of their first chapter but the beginning of their second which fans of the Australian band today continue to relish…

Elton John: The First 10 Years
