David Meece – 7 – 1985

I’ll just get this out of the way right away. I detest this “numbering” of an album. I think producers think it’s neat and cool but in reality it’s shortsighted, lazy, and it’s been done way too many times. That said lets get onto the album. By this point in David’s career he was mastering the pop sound that would work so well for him. This album while good doesn’t really have anything that says “listen to me again and again”. Instead it’s a good album with some good songs that I enjoyed listening to but will I put it on repeat? Not likely. I do however think you should give the album a listen, it is good but just not memorable.
