Review Type: 

New double album of the legendary boogie rockers where the first disc contains songs inspired by the adventures Status Quo experienced during the making of the movie ‘Bula Quo’ and which also served as soundtrack. The surroundings in Fiji, where the movie was filmed, inspired the band to put some new musical elements to their sound that doesn’t sound like the typical Quo sound. Songs as ‘Looking Out For Caroline’, ‘Mystery Island’ or ‘Bula Bula Quo’ make you feel like you’re on an island full of palm trees and sunny beaches.

The second cd is full of quo classics that are partly been mixed through the ‘Fiji’ blender (‘Living On An Island’ and ‘Rockin’ All Over the World’) and added with some live versions of ‘Pictures of Matchstick Men’, ‘Whatever You Want’ and ‘Down Down’. After a career that’s been spread over almost 50 years Status Quo doesn’t bring anything new but as always this album is again pure fun and entertaining for fans of boogie rock.
