"World Gone Crazy" (HOR Records; 2010)

Reviewed by Snidermann


The Doobie Brothers' "World Gone Crazy" is a quality rock'n'roll release and it shows some of the magic that made them one of the most popular bands of the 1970s. This is high quality musical entertainment, admittedly on the lighter side, but still it has all the trademarks that made the Doobie Brothers famous.

Founding members Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons, with John McFee and Michael Hossack, round out the members of this recording and they shine from the first cut to the last. There is a cut called "Donít Say Goodbye" that features the unique vocals of Michael McDonald, who was with the band from 1977 to 1979. It's a highlight.

This is the 23rd recording from this iconic band. Some of the recordings here are live and/or greatest hits, but this is still an awesome collection.

As I said above, "World Gone Crazy" may not be hard rock, but it's still good solid rock music. In my opinion, it is a great thing to have new Doobie Brothers music out there in the universe.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
