City Boy - It's Personal (1981)
The seventh and final album from this British band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of keyboards, bass, guitars, drums and vocals.
I have reviewed most of their albums this year and they have not really hit me at home. Their, at best, pomp rock, falls a bit short.
City Boy is a cult band though and all cult bands deserve to get their albums reviewed.
The band has fallen on hard times on this album and has lost what made them acceptable or even good in their best days.
What we get is straight rock with a lot of reggae influences. Urban rock in other words.
The vocals are good but let down by some songs which is pretty abysmal bad.
The rest of this album is fairly decent. But it is still sailing pretty close to turkey island and my collection of turkeys. Avoid this album.
