In its simplest terms, Blondes Have More Fun is Rod Stewart's disco album, filled with pulsating rhythms and slick, synthesized textures. It's also his trashiest, most disposable album, filled with cheap come-ons and bad double entendres. Of course, that makes Blondes Have More Fun one of his most enjoyable records, even if all the pleasures are guilty. With its swirling strings and nagging chorus, "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" was the reason the record hit number one, and decades later, the song stands as one of the best rock-disco fusions. The rest of the record isn't as engaging, but he throws out a handful of winning tracks in the same mold, including "Ain't Love a Bitch," "Attractive Female Wanted," and the title track.

v3122, this is NOT me 'having a go' at you because I am ALWAYS appreciative of your efforts, but . . . it looks to me like all of these Jap SHM-CD's have been 'brick-walled' - why oh why do they continue to do this? Track 1 of this album has a wave-form like the top of Table Mountain (as do most of the others) - one, long, flat line :o( But, a 'brick-walled Rod' is better than 'no Rod'!

Thanks again for your time & effort. Kind regards.
