Suzi would come back a year later and release "Suzi..And Other Four Letter Words", this album starts out with the balls to the wall early 60's type rocker "I've Never Been In Love", #41 Dave Neal's drumming gives us the earth shaken "Mind Demons", "She's In Love With You", #41, one of my all-time favorites from Suzi, should of been a top 20 hit for sure, remember hearing this a ton in the summer of '79, Suz's bass and Bill Hurd's keyboards keep this track going. The Quatro -Tuckey tune "Hollywood", is a great mid-tempo track, good story song, with some good rolling keys by Bill Hurd, watch out for the F-word warning at the end of the song. The title track has that 50's sound, Suzi could do these numbers with no sweat. The new wave feel of "Mama's Boy", a bother classic in my opinion, a Quatro CLASSIC! "Starlight Lady", one of those 50's mid-tempo ballads, very atmospheric. "You Are My Lover", her only cover on the album was written by Jack Lee (The Nerves) 1970's LA power-pop band, a song that sounded like Debbie Harry, but Suzi does a great job on this, very upbeat power-pop. "Space Cadets", has a very New wave tone also, with some Gary Numan type feels. And the album closes with "Love Hurts", not the Everly Brothers classic, this one has a great Dave Neal drum roll, very good 70's popper. Suzi would really give me her pride and joy (for me anyways), in 1980's "Rock Hard".
