sound. This is somewhat of a shame, because Blunstone
has one of the sweetest voices in rock n' roll and it is
easy for it to get lost under the heavy coat of gloss.
Blunstone is somewhat of an enigma, as far as British
rock artists are concerned. In England, the music scene
has been torn asunder by the new wave, with more
sophisticated listeners turning to fusion music and the
younger audience preferring disco. Blunstone does not
fit into any of these categories. Rather, he seems to be
little more than an artifact of the old days when young
men wrote love songs.
The first side of Never Even Thought wallows along
in a slow-paced vein until the title song, which closes the
side. This probably is the hardest hitting song on the
album and shows that Blunstone really can rock when
he's given the chance.
Soft, sad voice
The second side is better, but there are no really
memorable moments. Blunstone's lyrics are quite predict-

able, as are his melodies at times. His soft and sad voice
along with the lush instrumental background would make
this a good album to put on before going to bed, but,
in general, albums with such specialized uses are not
worth much for anything else.
It is sad that Never Even Thought comes off so
flat, because Blunstone is a truly talented vocalist,
certainly an endangered species these days. Perhaps with
a stripped-down back-up band, or just an acoustic guitar
or piano, his engaging voice would be enough to carry
an album, but until he chooses to make such changes, his
music will remain uninspiring.
