Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered 25th Anniversary edition of the only album by a trio of future heavyweights that would change the face of popular music in their near future. The members of this group included David Foster (keyboards and later acclaimed producer), Jay Graydon (guitar and vocals, also a future producer and arranger) and Tommy Funderburk (who contributed background vocals to over 50 different albums). They were backed by drummer Jeff Porcaro and bassist David Hungate, both of Toto.

Format: Audio CD
It's hard to review this album without mentioning Toto. Much like Toto, this self-titled 1980 album from Airplay is the pet project of two guys who'd already made huge names for themselves as session musicians in California during the '70s: David Foster and Jay Graydon. Additionally, Jeff Porcaro, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro, and David Hungate all appear on this album, all of whom were members of the original Toto lineup.

It should come as no surprise then that "Airplay" sounds very Toto-esque indeed. Foster and Graydon produced and arranged the album, and it leans toward the hard rock end of things, with a really slick, arena-rock sound. It's frequently over-the-top, with sudden blasts of dynamics, and exaggerated horn parts and vocals.

The thing though is that the guys clearly have their tongues firmly in cheek. Song after song has undeniably catchy hooks, and there are also some riotously fun, ingeniously crafted lyrics, particularly on "Leave Me Alone" and "Bix".

In the end, the album offers a real blast of dumb fun. The best example of this is the insanely catchy "Bix"--with its brass-heavy arrangement, from-the-gut vocals, devastatingly sinful lyrics, and syncopated piano-laden groove, it kinda sounds like Elton John on crack, and it's an absolute hook-fest. "Cryin' All Night", "Leave Me Alone", "Sweet Body", and the ear-splittingly loud album opener "Stranded" are all really fun songs as well. The bouncy pop-rocker "Nothin' You Can Do About It" is relatively calm and collected, but it's ultra-catchy in its own right.

They do throw in a few ballads. The achingly bittersweet "Should We Carry On" is a wonderfully melodic gem that sounds like an honest-to-god hit that never was, and I mean that as a compliment.

this album is great. I'm a big power pop fan, new wave fan, and this has that plus that 70s style songwriting that shows real talent in the chord changes, a la 10cc. I prefer the upbeat songs, but that's just me. this is a fun album. The price may turn people off, but those that even know of this album will either spend the money or find it elsewhere. it is really enjoyable, it has a steely dan sophistication, with the power pop energy they lack, and I guess toto, though I've never really liked what I've heard of them. this is good stuff!

This is one of the first endeavors of David Foster and Jay Graydon. This music is new to me I had heard of the players and heard other projects. but this 25 year old CD is really good. You can see some cuts on "You-Tube" or just be brave and buy it from Amazon
