Album Review: Rod Stewart - Camouflage (1984)

Camouflage is a terrible album, the worst I've heard from Rod Stewart and probably one of the worst albums to come out of the 1980s.  There are only two decent songs on this album - "Some Guys Have All The Luck" and "Can We Still Be Friends."  And that's pushing the term "decent" quite a bit.  This certainly feels more like a contract-filler to me - there's just no soul, no motivation to it, nothing.  Dull as ditchwater and almost as entertaining as a group of puritan, conservative housewives discussing the joys of crochet, you'd only buy this if you're an obsessive-compulsive collector or if you think "Some Guys Have All The Luck" has some potential going for it, for which you'd probably be right.  Otherwise, wait until this goes cheap.  The C plus rating I'm giving it is for the aforementioned songs.  There's plenty of vastly superior Rod Stewart albums that you should be listening to, even from his somewhat maligned eighties period.  Hell, give me Every Beat of my Heart any day, and apparently that's rubbish.  Compared to this, however, I'd beg to differ.  C+
