This is a GREAT album. Nothing but 110% effort on every song. Mike Murphy sang on this one and his vocals are soulful and very unique. If you are a baby boomer this will take you back to leaving home (Movin') , trying to find love (Oh Woman), losing love (Start a New Life) and trying to make something of yourself (oh sure these guys were going to California to be rock stars but you know what I mean)(Find My Fortune). No long jams on this like the live album, but Gary's guitar playing is excellent.

Call me crazy, but I actually quite LIKE the "different" REO with this lead singer-but that's just me. Sure, Kevin was the more commercial singer, but his voice gets on my nerves sometimes. My favorite album from the Mike Murphy period is "Lost In A Dream"-IMO.

RIDIN' THE STORM OUT is a great REO Speedwagon album. Even though Kevin Cronin is gone, Mike Murphy has a unique voice that is well suited to these hard-rockin' numbers. The title song could be about any troublesome situation, and "Open Up" is a great steal from CSNY's "Everybody I Love You." "Find My Fortune" belongs on any field-day soundtrack, as does the aforementioned title track, but the whole album is great. A must for any serious rock fan.

The first REO song I ever heard was the studio version of Riding The Storm Out. I didn't know he wasn't the original vocalist for the band. When I finally heard Kevin I was disappointed. I think Mike has a good rock voice, while Kevin is wimpy sounding. Every time I hear this song on the radio now, they always play the live version. I think that is a mistake.

This is the sound of REO before they became pop artists. Most of the people I know like the sound of REO from this era. Kevin Cronin is too much of a yodeler. Yeah, I know he was with the band prior to this album. His vocals detract from the rest of the musicians. My REO collection begins and ends with Michael Murphy as lead vocalist. Another good REO album is "This Time We Mean It". You probably can only find it on vinyl, but well worth the search.

I admit it; I bought this album specifically to get the original version of the title song, "Ridin' the Storm Out." The synthesizer riff that starts off the song is an absolute classic, and it's one of the rare songs that really needs the synthesizer and integrates it excellently well with the rest of the music. (See also "Never Beeen Any Reason" by Head East for another great synthesizer part.) Yeah, I occasionally listen to the other songs, but "Ridin' the Storm Out" is so good that it justifies getting the album just for that one song.

Reo's third album "Ridin' the Storm Out" originally featured Kevin Cronin on vocals, but he was replaced during the sessons by Michael Murphy who would sing on two other albums before Kevin returned to the band in 76.
Ridin' the Storm Out is the strongest of the Mike Murphy albums. Of course containing the staples Ridin the Storm Out and Son of a Poor Man. Other highlights include Movin, and Whiskey Night. Hardcore fans will want to check this out, but casual fans can pass it up without feeling like they've missed something.
