Album Review: "World Goes Round" by World Goes Round (8/10)

Label: Viper Records

Producer: Tommy Vicari

In 1989, a supergroup of behind-the-scenes industry vets got together at co-lead vocalist Frank Musker’s Laurel Canyon studio to record an album of lush ballads and peppy pop-rockers for an album that never got released––until now! Discovering an old cassette led to the fascinating resurrection of the musical magic and chemistry created by Musker, Elizabeth Lamers (co-lead vocals), Jeff Hull (keys/drums/bass) and Marty Walsh (guitar). Though Tommy Vicari’s production is super ‘80s specific, its retro charm will inspire a closer listen to songs whose themes often meet our current challenging moment in compelling, thought provoking ways.
