Jefferson Starship (Winds Of Change) 1982





As much as I love Modern Times, I've listened to this even more. It's not to say that Wind Of Change is better than Modern Times, I just seem to play this more for whatever reason. Yes, this is a little bit more in the AOR mold for half the album, but who cares? Everyone was either already there are heading there. Me love this album long time.

I think the album kicks off with the best possible song they could with the Self-Title song. Great arrangement for sure. Fantastic vocals too. But Craig Chaquico OWNED the track with his blistering leads. But this isn't the only song he excells on. There are a ton of great songs on here, especially Out of Control, Can't Find Love and Black Widow. This album really gelled in a way that a lot of other albums by other artist failed. Mickey Thomas and Grace Slick sound great here and she is EPIC on Black Widow. Probably my fave track of hers on any album she's been on.

There are a couple of songs that do have a tendency to go overboard on them. Of course I'm talking about Be My Lady and I Will Stay. Yes, it's a little heavy on the piano and it being an outright ballad. Tt was definitely aiming for a certain demographic with those tunes. But for whatever strange reason, I think they are great songs. It's a different side to the band for sure, but they became huge hits, so obviously it made a connection with a lot of people besides myself.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. Top picks go to Winds Of Change, Keep On Dreamin', Be My Lady, I Will Stay, Out Of Control, Black Widow and Can't Find Love
