Do you like Huey Lewis and the News?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Their early work was a little too 'new-wave' for my taste, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own - both commercially and artistically.

The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.

In '87, Huey released 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!

Also, hello from New York smile.gif

Current specs: i5-3570K, ASRock Z77 Extreme4, 8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM, 120GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD, 1TB WD Caviar Blue HDD. No aftermarket cooler yet -- this is my next purchase so I can properly overclock smile.gif
