City Boy


City Boy - City Boy
City Boy's self-titled debut ranges from blues/funk tunes to mellow AOR songs to progressive, melodic tracks -- there's something on the album for most everyone to like. From the Sweet-ish anthem "The Greatest Story Ever Told" to the quirky "Oddball Dance," City Boy is an eclectic, interesting and notable introduction.

City Boy - Dinner At The Ritz

I just love those UK bands, in the art rock branch (10 cc, Charlie) prog pop rock rolled into one delicious music. These guys are really "up" there with the genius of 10 cc,wonderful themes, interesting and even funny and bizarre lyrics. With 2 lead vocalists (Mason & Broughton) and the ever present lead guitarist Mike Slamer, Keyboard player Max Thomas (founder of the group) & gentlemen Dunn / Kent on Bass and drums respectively. Song after song unfold with its own "soul." There are serious vocals arrangements to be heard. Beatles might also be mentioned as there are reminiscence of them too. Great album, greatly performed. Special mention to tracks: "Dinner at the Ritz" and "The Violin."

City Boy - Book Early
Book Early starts with "5.7.0.5," a Queen/ELO hybrid, and the rest of the album follows suit pretty closely -- but this time City Boy adds more pop elements to their sound and drops the soft rock feel that was prevalent on much of Young Men Gone West. The result is quite enjoyable, especially on tracks like "Raise Your Glass (To Foolish Me)," "Cigarettes" and "Dangerous Ground." Book Early is City Boy's most energetic, if not their best.

City Boy - Young Men Gone West
On this album, the band focuses on the glam rock sound of the mid- to late-'70s (swirling guitars, high-pitched harmonies) on tracks like "Dear Jean (I'm Nervous)" and "The Man Who Ate His Car," but City Boy maintains its soft rock sound with light keyboard touches and soft vocals on songs such as "One After Two" and the title track. Young Men Gone West has an interesting, albeit uneven, mix of songs that doesn't have the same quirky, eclectic feel of the first two albums -- but it is a worthy effort nonetheless.

The Day The Earth Caught Fire

 

If you liked Book Early (with the semi-hit "5705"), you'll love this release. The production values are great with Mutt Lange piecing together a great series of songs that leave the listener wanting more.I would consider this a concept album that
the late 70's and early 80's seemed to churn out frequently. In the era of Queen, Rush, Boston and Supertramp, City Boy is truly a guilty pleasure not many music fans know about.Do yourself a favor and find a way to listen to this release, and you'll see that this is a must for your collection.

City Boy - It's Personal
The seventh City Boy album -- which is not a bad achievement for a group that most folks remember for just the first one or two -- was also their last. It's not difficult to see why, not because they'd run out of either ideas or energy -- as always with this most remarkable of late-'70s pop combos, the album bristles with hooks and barbs, even when they are so patently aping the Police ("The Blind Leading the Blind") that they could be a Men at Work tribute group. But how long can anyone keep making tightly coiled pop confections before they tire of being told that they peaked with their very first hit record? It's an unmistakably early-'80s album, all jagged edges and sharp little rhythms, but shot through with electric lyrics and licks, and dancing around some oddly satisfying ideas as well -- "La Guerra de Mondo" could be a Boomtown Rats number; "Who Killed Delores" is a deeply funky piece that predicts a lot of the later new romantic era; and the closing "Exit the Heavyweight" -- now there's an epitaph, if any band wrote one -- is a tinkling keyboard piece fed through a heartbroken vocal and you know it's going to explode into action long before it does. A great way for any band to go out, then, and a musical high point in a career that was littered with the things, It's Personal might not be City Boy's best album, but it's up there with the best of them.
