Picks and Pans Review: Riptide
Palmer's latest solo album is assured and attractive, his haunting, voluptuous tenor never better. By doubling and trebling that voice, and dubbing in his own harmonies, he wields a unique effect. Not all of Riptide is as strong as his last record, Pride, but some tracks are real winners, especially Trick Bag, with its trapdoor syncopation, and Addicted to Love, one of the year's hottest rock songs. Okay, Bob, your Power Station digression is forgiven. (Island)
