It's truly a shame that so many of Greg Kihn's releases are out of print in CD and that people are asking such ridiculous amounts of money for them.

Kihnspiracy sports the minor hit "Jeopardy", which spawned the Weird Al "(I Lost On) Jeopardy" version. Imitation is a great form of flattery, and Greg Kihn definitely penned a number of great tunes over the years. I'd recommend picking this up on vinyl, which should be readily available for a few bucks.

Although I do enjoy Kihnspiracy, if you're looking for a good introduction to Kihn's work (other than a "Best of"), I'd suggest RocKihnRoll. However, there are still some great tunes to be enjoyed here including Jeopardy, Tear That City Down, and How Long. Don't let the 3-star rating discourage you from picking this up if you find a copy. I would have easily given it another half star if I could.

I look forward to picking up more of Greg Kihn's work on vinyl, saving myself a bunch of cash, and enjoying some great under-appreciated music.

Although "Jeopardy"'s crafty, dancefloor hook is well deserving of its number two marking on the charts, the rest of Kihnspiracy maintains a solid pop/rock foundation as well, making it and 1981's Rockihnroll the two best Greg Kihn Band albums. With Kihnspiracy, Kihn turns songs like "Fascination," "Tear That City Down," and "Talkin' to Myself" into exuberant, appealing guitar pop, thanks to the highly charged use of rhythm and melody. Most of the tunes carry a steady pace, and the formula instilled in Kihn's writing pays close attention to the importance of the pop-led hook without an overabundance of glitz and sweetness. Even tracks that seem to be less attended too, like "Someday" and "Love Never Fails," muster up some appeal in their choruses before being designated as filler. Overall, Kihnspiracy still stands as one of the group's most enjoyable recordings. -- Mike DeGagne
