Colin Hay - Men at Work - - Music Review

Are You Looking At Me? - Colin Hay's 2007 release has found it's way to my disc player. Let me just dispense with the suspense. Oh my god - I freaking love this disc. Holly smokes out of the blue comes a mature, sophisticated, smart, intelligent, sumptuous delight of audio, lyric, fun and contemplation from the former Men At Work front man. I can not rave about this disc enough. First off Colin's voice is still intact. Secondly, his sense of humor is as strong as ever tempered with age, wisdom, insight, humility, compassion, and yes love. The production is first rate. The tunes bounce along, float, rock, boogie and reflect. The syncopation isn't hurried but tempered and well I am so impressed - this is now my new favorite disc. He's out touring with Ringo - that's just completely perfect. If he comes to Virginia Beach I'll be the first to buy tickets.

Well done Colin well done and welcome back amigo!!!!!!!!!!

This time is different - this time we got you -- and I thank you for that!
