Customer Reviews

This album is ok, but to call Fault Line a weaker effort is simply absurd.
Moondog
I ordered this to replace an old lp I have and this was always one of my favorite releases.
Sparkle
If you're a fan of that era, then you can't go wrong with getting this album.

This was another great smooth mellow cd from the Michael McDonald led era of the Doobie Brothers. This album was released in the fall of 1980. The hit single "Real Love" is one of there best songs ever in my opinion. The second hit single was "One Step Closer" with Cornelius Bumpus and McDonald sharing the lead vocals. The instrumental song "South Bay Strut" and McDonald's "Dedicate This Heart" and "Keep This Train Rollin" are also standout songs. The whole cd is pretty good lite rock. There is more saxophone on this cd with the addition of Cornelius Bumpus to the band. This was also the Doobies first album with John McFee on guitar replacing Jeff Skunk Baxter and Chet McCracken on drums,replacing John Hartman.

1980's One Step Closer ended the Michael McDonald era of the band. Following the monster success of Minute By Minute, Mr. McDonald took creative control of the band on this release. The album is essentially a solo album for him. One Step Closer isn't a bad album, it just isn't anywhere as good as the previous effort. "Real Love" is a brilliant song and is as good as anything the band has ever done. The song was a top ten hit (peaking at number 5) and nothing else on the album compares to it. After a final tour, the band broke up and went their separate ways. They reunited in 1989 (sans Mr. McDonald) for the Cycles album.

Over the years there's been a train of thought that once Michael McDonald joined the band they increasingly became a backup band for his writing and Pat Simmons took a back seat musically. The answer of course is....not really. Michael joining the band only allowed the band to put his jazzy funk stylings within the bands already finely honed Southern Rock boogie style.After three albums of getting all of this together the Doobie's,already having perfected their sound from this era,seem to have totally integrated that style here-what turned out to be their final album.The presense of sax player Cornelious Bumpus in the band really did them good in many places.The rhythms the band provided to the carnivalesque jazz/funk-pop of "Dedicate This Heart","No Stoppin' Us Now","Just In Time" and "One By One" really show how so much of what was called "soft rock" or "blue eyed soul" was often enough some form of funk or jazz-funk in disguise.There's still time to throw down another pop smash in "Real Love";it is one of the poppier tunes on this set but it's still plenty heated up. A bit of the old booging style shows itself on the title track and especially on the gutsy "Keep This Train A-Rollin".The instrumental "South Bay Strut" not only keeps the California funky jazz-pop thing rolling along but gives Bumpus as real time to shine too. This is not the hardest rocking of the Doobie albums by any means.But for lovers of funk or early 80's pop-jazz will find this is full of treasures and for those Doobie fans who can appreciate those attitudes and musical styles will find a lot here to soak up.

How anyone could find The Doobie Brothers' 1980 album "One Step Closer" a disappointment is really quite surprising to me (although nothing really surprises me anymore). Granted, the group did disband not too long after this release and supposedly they themselves aren't too crazy about this record, but it's one of those cases to which I say, "You could have fooled me."

It's true that, to a large extent, they're treading familiar territory here, both stylistically and sonically, with basically the entire album having a 'jazzy' soft rock sound that screams out "late 70s"/"early '80s". However, "Takin' It To The Streets" and "Livin' On The Fault Line" are each much less consistent as albums than "One Step Closer". This album shows that you can make music that is very relaxed without being dull--the lush sound, the sophisticated creativity and catchiness of the compositions, and the spirited performances make for an album that is compulsively listenable and for the most part immensely satisfying. Certainly it's very professional, and there are a bunch of different people who contributed to the songwriting (each track features a different songwriting battery), but it's unfair and inaccurate to say that the album is uninspired or that it is merely workmanlike. "Real Love" is a dramatic song about the toll empty relationships can take on people, and it features one of Michael McDonald's classic soulful vocal performances.

A good album from the era most Doobie Brothers' fans don't always like, but I remember that if Michael McDonald hadn't come along then, the Doobies may not have stayed around so they would still be there for us now. They sure sold some vinal from this era, and I still like these with him as their most accomplished studio music. Just an opinion from a fan back to the Seventies (early) and I have all of them now. Say them reciently in Biloxi and they were fantastic. If they could ever have a family night where all the past members, Skunk also, could play, I'd surely pay for that. Sounds like some one is a Doobie fan here. Take it to the Streets!
