Some folks out there are enamored with this CD and the big disco smash Do Ya Think I'm Sexy. others may think old hot Rod expanded his style. To some degree Rod Stewart did do the later. However, Blondes Have More Fun is just an ordianry ten song set.
Don't get me wrong, these songs do not ofend me in any great way. They just do not thrill me. The prevous release, Foot Loose and Fancy Free consisted of edgy rock tunes and touching ballads. There are too many ho hum ballads with lifeless arrangements. The rockers are a little better but fall short of previous gems like Hot Legs and Born Loose. Dirty Weekend may have catchy guitars but the hooks and lyrics are somewhat forgettable. The title track is pretty catchy but does not break any ground in the creative department. Is That The Thanks I Get has a pretty catchy chorus and the cover of Standing In The Shadows Of Love is quite memorable. The disco hit Do Ya Think I'm Sexy has a few catchy moments but just does not stay to memorable over its five minute length. I could go on about the other five songs but the response would be the same: Some good moments but basically forgettable.
Therefore unless you are an established fan of Hot Rod, I would say that you could live without this recording.
