RIC OCASEK 1991! - THE HORROR KNOWN AS "FIREBALL ZONE," A SET OF 12 NEW WAVE DITTIES

Take a look at Ric Ocasek's most under-appreciated album, a set of songs that flows nicely and has a lot of hard rock besides the pop side as well. The production is tough and I dig the sound that got on the drummer on this one, all in all an album that deserves a try despite it's mired history.....The Horror!!
"As he proved with the Cars, Ocasek can strike a fine balance between melodic pop and driving rock. And here he avoids the moody, synthesizer-driven art rock that made his previous solo albums sputter." - People
"Fireball Zone is the encouraging sound of one man trying to break out of the confines of his own mechanized world." - Entertainment Weekly 
THE HORROR!!
