Album Review

Since "Slipping Away" was a minor hit, Edmunds brought Jeff Lynne back to produce Riff Raff, a record that essentially replicates the sound and style of Information. Lynne has a tighter hold on the album than before, and Edmunds rarely sounds as energetic as he does on his best records, mainly because the processed rhythms are at odds with his roots-rock sensibilities. Like Information, there are a few good moments on the record, particularly in the giddy "Rules of the Game," but overall, Riff Raff is Edmunds' weakest record.
