Ian Lloyd: Goose Bumps

Posted by

ImageIf you connect Lloyd’s name with the group Stories and its 1973 hit “Brother Louie,” your memory is good, but your expectations for this solo package are probably way off. A better reference point can be found in the Cars, whose Ric Ocasek contributed the album’s best song, “Slip Away.” Though no other track comes close to matching that one, authoritative vocals, relentless percussion and catchy love lyrics pervade the set. Additional plusses include Larry Fast’s synthesizer and a state-of-the-art production. Goose Bumps may be short on profundities, but it’s a whole lot of fun.
