The fantastic finale! / 5
I hated to see this album end. Starting Over was a great way to kick off the new Raspberries, but the fun ended almost as soon as it started. Despite being ranked as one of the great albums of 1974, it didn't sell terribly well, and the band fell apart at the seams. After this, Eric would follow the unfortunate path toward adult easy listening with a few exceptions over the years such as the Tonight You're Mine album. Solid stuff, but kind of like being served a McDonalds cheeseburger when you were expecting a New York Strip. Starting Over is a great album from start to finish with only Wally's unfortunately prophetic "Party's Over" sounding anything like filler. "Overnight Sensation" is one of the great achievements of the AM era and I've always suspected that only it's length kept it from being the smash that it deserved to be. Scott McCarl's two contributions "Play On" and "Rose Coloured Glasses" definitely make one wonder what might have lay ahead for the fifth album. More than one of my friends mistook "I Don't Know What I Want" for a lost Who track and Michael McBride's furious mugging of his drum kit left little doubt that he could ably fill Jim Bonfanti's shoes. I don't know that this song ever got any kind of airplay, but I don't know how it didn't. (Can you tell it's my favorite from the album?) "Cruisin' Music" is further proof that Eric Carmen wrote better Beach Boys tunes than Brian Wilson in 1974, and the album closer "Starting Over" is another of the group's classic tracks. To this day, listening to Starting Over makes me think that four albums were far too few for the band to get the message across, and I've always wished for more. Thirty years later, that just might happen. (And I think Scott McCarl should get an invite if it does.)
