"Enough Is Enough"
Billy Squier became an overnight success with his second album, Don't Say
No (1981). Emotions In Motions, his follow up, was almost as popular,
but a video from his next album ("Rock Me Tonite" practically was a major
disappointment. 1984's Signs Of Life followed, then in 1986, Enough Is
Enough was released, and this week's review. This album is a good one, as it
has songs that could have easily fitted the Don't Say No. For Queen fans,
there are some songs that would fit Freddie Mercury and crew's style. In fact,
Brian May of Queen was supposed to produce Don't Say No, but due to
scheduling conflicts, he recommended another producer (Reinhold Mack).
"Shot O' Love" has the sound of Don't Say No, likewise it's
hard rocking as say Sammy Hagar. Journey comes to mind on "Love Is The
Hero." Freddie Mercury co-wrote the next song with Squier, "Lady With A
Tenor Sax," as it easily fits the Queen mold.
"All We Have To Give" is a ballad, and a good one. Most of the
remaining songs fit the Queen style: "Come Home" has the hard rocking
sound of Queen, although "Break The Silence" could fit Squier's Don't
Say No release. Like it's title, "Powerhouse" is a rocker. The
nice, pleasant styled Queen is heard on "Lonely One," likewise another
pleasant style as Queen would record is on "Til It's Over." The album
ends with another good Squier rocker, "Wink Of An Eye."
Enough Is Enough doesn't mean it's enough of the music of Billy Squier.
Maybe his lame video "Rock Me Tonite" fell on hard times, Squier was
able to continue recording, and for those who enjoyed Don't Say No and
Emotions In Motion, Enough Is Enough is another good contender.
Not as popular, but still, it's another album that would just be as favorable.
