About the Album:
The Philadelphia-based rock band the Hooters found success in the 1980s with their Nervous Night album, which produced three top-40 hits. They released five albums from 1980 to 1993 and then disappeared until 2007’s Time Stand Still. During that fourteen-year hiatus, Eric Bazilian wrote for other artists, most notably the top-5 hit “One of Us” for Joan Osborne in 1995, but also released a pair of solo albums. The first, The Optimist, came out in 2000.
This one, A Very Dull Boy, follows in 2002. It is “another collection of witty lyrics and personal insightful thoughts of relationships and the world around him.” MR It is “rockier and more uptempo than the debut, although the production is very rough and tumble.” MR
“Bazilian’s style is somewhat rawer and rougher than the polished Hooters, not to mention the more distinct fuzz-tones of his tuned down guitar. Still, there’s a few tracks that could be lifted off this, polished and Hooterized. It all boils down to whether you are a fan of the singer/ songwriter/ musician.” MR
