Picks and Pans Review: Square Rooms
Corley, formerly of Dynasty and Carly Simon's love life, has become a big record star in Europe, especially in France. He must be doing it by sleight of voice if this atrocious album is any indication. Corley grunts and slurs his way through a corner-bar imitation of Elvis Presley, burdened by 10 of the worst pop-rock songs ever. He has mostly himself to blame, since he wrote part of the music and many of the subliterate lyrics, including these from Cold Dresses: "Life is motion/ And not in motion/But how/Did I know/And how/Did I know/The cold dresses that she wore/That you wore/The cold dresses that she wore." It might save Corley if he could hook up with a woman singer for some duets, but what woman singer could possibly be desperate enough to do that? (Mercury)
