Don't bother buying it

I have always liked Smokey Robinson and since I am now playing a lot of music in the house, I wanted some of his stuff. So I picked up his new "Time Flies When Your're Having Fun" album.

OMG - it's awful. I feel like writing him and asking for my money back. There's one song, a collaboration with Carlos Santana and another with India Arie that are half decent, but all in all, it's awful. Basic, primitive, stupid repeating lyrics, poor music, - really shallow.

On the other hand, I am playing Darius Rucker - Learn to Live over and over and the Rod Stewart Soulbook is decent enough.

In case you have any 60's era grandmas you need to buy for.

To tell you the truth... I didn't realize he was still alive.

Apparently he's not - and this album proves it.

I loved "Cruisin'", and still do. Still, that was a long time ago. I haven't heard any of his recent work.

Sadly, I only have Smokey on LP and the turntable is all kaputie.

I like Smokey.

I might check that out. I have one song on one LP which never made it to CD.
