ROD STEWART...Out Of Order  (1988)
Out Of Order was released 25 years ago in 1988 and reached number 20 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  I'll give it a 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.  It's for sure not as good as Stewart's 70's albums but it's still a very good record.  "Dynamite" opens side 2 and is a good jumpin' jammin' track.  The album has some very nice ballads as well, "Forever Young" being the best.  Another highlight for me is "Crazy About Her".  It seems to go, then it stops, then it goes...keeps you anticipating the next step which intrigues me.  Rod sounds great on this album, which he produced with Andy Taylor of Duran Duran and Bernard Edwards (who was a member of the disco band Chic and was also a part of the supergroup Power Station).  Check it out, I recommend it

I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth
enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful
than ever before.
