This album is classic HL&N. Even a little country in one song. I saw an interview he just did with Dan Rather where he wanted 10 songs, but with his hearing getting worse he wanted to get the 7 out they had finished. Thank you so much, guys, for one more stellar album. Every bit as good as the others, might actually be my favorite, well maybe behind Picture This. God bless and hoping for the best for the band.
With all the other pop crap out there, I was to happy to see Huey Lewis and the News put out a new album. I love hearing the horn sections in his music. Solid sound through all these years.
WOW! Solid album of great songs. I am very happy to have a new and excellent album from Huey Lewis and the News. The arrangements are so smooth and his voice really resonates solidly making every song fun and just great. And as another fan noted: You've still got it Huey!!!! Thank you for giving us another collection of great songs to enjoy.
A perfect follow up to that beautiful album’ “Plan B”, “Weather” continues that smooth band sound with the velvety vocals that we love from our frontman. Like they never left the studio, the band is hot in every track. Welcome back, boys!
Great voice! Great songs! Well worth the wait. Just watched on Kelly Clarkson. What an amazing story. You are an inspiration! Break a leg with your Broadway Music “The Heart of Rock and Roll”!!
Reminiscent of old and new style and feel. Huey and the band sound magnificent as usual. I love Huey and am so happy this was released, hope your hearing issue resolves but what I’m hearing is a true gift. Thanks for the new drug.
I hope Huey gets cured of the ear problems, how sad is that? This album is really good for whatever reason it came together, be it a desire to do so, some bucks in the bank or people begging for one more. If you were over ten years old in 1982, you should give this a listen.
The boys are back! Nearly two decades of waiting for new material and it was fully worth the wait for this fan. Much love to band, the album is a nice gem. Perfect item for my collection!
Welcome back Huey and the News!! This is a great comeback album. Even though Huey has hearing issues it is not evident in any of these new, dynamic, and energized songs. There isn't a bad one in the bunch. An excellent addition to the News catalog!!!
Love this excellent new album and they rode the full gamut of their sound. Rock, blues, pop, and soul. Huey still has it and that distinctive sound will never get old. Only hope that he can solve the issues with tinnitus so he can hit the road again. They are long overdue to be enshrined in the Rock Hall. Hopefully 2021 is their year.
The album coming in at just under 30 minutes due to Huey Lewis’s well documented hearing issues that didn’t allow them to continue with additional tracks. However, this short album entry offers their full range of sounds from their 80s hit sounds, to their likeness for covers, and even going off the path with a country/folk entry. Flows nicely through the half hour of sound, and easily supplies fans with some other greatest hits entries.
It's great to hear Huey back recording again..Even though this could very well be his last studio album due to his hearing disease, I personally like the album very much and I wish Huey all the best and hope this album goes to number 1 for him! He definitely deserves it!
Huey- This is so welcome! Like Crowded House sang “every you go, take Weather w/you”. “Your Love is Killing Me” (what a great oxymoron and even greater song). Don’t miss this album. Best wishes, Huey!!!
It is very sad to hear that Huey lewis is losing his hearing! I have been a fan of his for a very long time! Giving it 5 stars because of his long term career of entertaining millions of fans all oveer the world!!! Will always be a fan Huey!!!!! Best of luck in your career!!!!!!!
Unfortunately, you already have to call their last studio album of original material, "Plan B", a classic, as it was released 19 years ago. Yes, in 2001. To put this into perspective: "Picture This", their first somewhat commercial success in 1982, was 19 years old when they released "Plan B", and you know what happened inbetween... So, now this, "Weather". If you expected pre-"Plan B"-material, some warmed up old recipe from the 80s, you will be dissappointed. If you liked "Plan B", however, this laid-back groovin' late HLN classic, this one's probably for you. The first five songs pretty much sum up what the band has been doing during the last 25 years, after their Rock heydays during the 80s and the beginning of the 90s. The sound is groovy, a little funky, a bit of the late T.O.P. here and there, lots of soul, with Huey's distinctive charming voice as the cherry on the cake. It's a bit of a pity that they could just do 7 songs due to Huey's illness and they have to ask themselves the question: what the heck did we do the last 25 years that we cannot deliver more than 7 songs? After all, they had been on the road for all this time. So, that's a bit of a downer. Also a bit of a downer: where are the anniversary editions of the debut, "FORE!", "Picture This", "Small World" and "Hard At Play" with outtakes, demos and rare live cuts? BMG, please, do something about that.
I love the 80’s Huey Lewis & The News...I listened to this a couple times but just can’t find a song that I liked...sorry fellas...I’ll just remember you back in your days and forget this happened.
