EDITORS’ NOTES

Though he opens with “Light This Party Up,” a super-catchy dose of power-pop crunch, Springfield steers his 2016 set toward modern Nashville. Songs like “That One” and “The Best Damn Thing” don’t sound very far from Keith Urban or Rascal Flatts, whose Jay DeMarcus actually helped write the jangling “Down.” “Miss Mayhem” alternates dobro-strummed verses with a post-grunge chorus, and “All Hands on Deck” is a sea chantey with fiddles. Springfield sings mainly about women he feels lucky, or not so lucky, to know.

Genius! Another Grand Slam Album!

Rick Springfield has not taken his foot off the accelerator since the last 4 records! Right when I thought it couldn't get any better than "Songs for the End of the World" he out does himself with "Rocket Science" A+ Singing/Writing/Playing & Production every song delivers emotion and Rick pots his heart out and sells every song! A must have!

Another great release

RS continues to turn out great product all the while not repeating himself. I love the way his writing has grown & matured. Guys that dismiss him as a chick artist are missing out. He continues to gain respect from the likes of artists like Dave Grohl & Jay Demarcus. His last several albums hold their own with today's music & he's a hell of a lot more talented than some of the talentless fluff out there. I think when it's all said & down I'll still like Songs For The End Of The World & Venus In Overdrive better than this one but not by much. Getting a new album from him is like my birthday & Christmas rolled into one.
