This album is of variable quality, a facet that is common with most Doobie Brothers albums. There are the usual, somewhat tedious boogie rockers with barely a tune, exemplified by the album's opener, although that seems to be just what most other Doobie Brothers' fans like the most! Combine that with some tracks that are quite country and western in style and whilst being very 'pleasant', could be seen as a little insipid. Amongst the ordinary material are what I see as the real jewels, the tracks where the acoustic guitar is at the fore and what is, for me, the Doobie's strongest area of expertise.
I'm afraid by this time I had come to realise that the sheer brilliance of 'Captain and Me' would never be repeated. Once an artist peaks so significantly, expectations are inevitably increased whilst reality drops accordingly. It's only downhill from now on.
