...sehr gut...
Eines meiner Lieblingsalben von Quo.
Ein ganz geniales Album
Status Quo sagt man nach, sie seien 1982 endgültig den Achtzigern verfallen, für Quo-Hardcores war "Never Too Late" aus 1981 sogar das letzte Album. Ich hingegen finde "Back To Back" nochmals eine richtig gute Steigerung gegenüber "Never Too Late" und "1+9+8+2", weil richtig schön fröhlich und rock'n'rollig. Natürlich mit dem einen oder anderen Schuss Achtziger/Pop.<br><br>• A Mess Of Blues (Pomus/Shuman) = 6*<br>• Ol' Rag Blues (Lancaster/Lamb) = 6*<br>• Can't Be Done (Rossi/Frost) = 6*<br>• Too Close Too The Ground (Parfitt/Bown) = 5* <br>• No Contract (Parfitt/Bown) = 6*<br>• Win Or Lose (Rossi/Frost) = 6*<br>• Marguerita Time (Rossi/Frost) = 6*<br>• Your Kind Of Love (Lancaster) = 6*<br>• Stay The Night (Rossi/FrostMiller) = 6*<br>• Going Down Town tonight (Johnson) = 5*

Ein durchwegs solides Album mit vier erfolgreichen Single Auskopplungen (A Mess Of Blues, Ol' Rag Blues, Marguerita Time, Going Down Town Tonight).
Kein schlechtes Album, aber im Gesamtschaffen von Status Quo rangiert es unter ferner liefen. Der Sound wurde damals deutlich poppiger, was ihnen halt nur bedingt steht, vieles wirkt relativ saftlos. Dennoch hat auch dieses Album Perlen zu bieten. Für mich die Favoriten: "A Mess Of Blues", "Ol' Rag Blues", "Can't Be Done" und der Bonustrack "Cadillac Ranch". Unter dem Strich knappe 5*.
Puh, eine ganz flache Platte.<br>Mich nervt diese subjektive Bewertung bei den ganzen Quo Platten.
Irgendwie schafft es bei mir fast jede Platte, dass ich irgendwas Positives sagen kann. "Back To Back" schafft das nicht. Der einzige Song, dem ich gerade so 4 Punkte gegeben habe, ist "Can't Be Done". Das aber auch nur mit viel gutem Willen. Der Rest ist uninteressanter, vor sich hin dudelnder Party-Rock mit geschliffenem 80er Touch. Ganz arg wird es bei "Marguerita Time". Ein Schunkel-Schlager, der an die Untiefen des Musikanten-Stadels denken lässt. Der Rest ist vielleicht nicht direkt mies, aber sowas von lahm, belanglos und öde, dass es weh tut. Nachdem ich diese Bewertung durchgezogen habe, muss ich den Mist zum Glück nie wieder anhören.
