Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It's hard to imagine that this album's bleak-spirited songs, grinding modern rock tack, and contemporary production aura are all the products of a musician who scored his first American chart hit in 1972, then was written off again a decade later after a string of MTV-fueled hits--including the classic "Jessie's Girl." But this is indeed the same Rick Springfield, his former bubblegum-rock incarnation belied by a tough musical stance that would be the envy of many a rocker half his age. But one doesn't have to dissect the slinky, eastern-inflected guitar hooks and fat, thumping bass of the wry "Jesus Saves" (chorus: "Jesus saves white trash, baby like you") very far to find that Springfield's songwriting instincts remain rock-solid. It's just as surprising to find that this self-produced album is the product of ears that have been anything but dormant in recent years, and savvy--or is it idealistic?--enough to turn a spunky, thrashed-up take of the Easybeats' 60's jewel "I'll Make You Happy" into a bridge across the generations. Cynical ears may mistake it all for a pose; if so it's an acting job the former soap opera star should be proud of. --Jerry McCulley

Product Description

Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance finds Rick Springfield spreading his wings to embrace multiple genres while revisiting the high points of his past. More rock than pop, it is an extension of his last album of new material, 1999's Karma. Not a disc loaded with radio-ready cuts, this is a solid album from a canny pop/rock vet.

Customer Reviews

Rick Springfield Rules!
James
The music and lyrics are obviously written and sung by someone in incredible emotional pain.
E. Sterling
My depression is one of the best songs ever.

I don't like modern rock--I prefer the good ol' days of Springsteen, John Cougar, maybe a little Van Halen and Bon Jovi. And it's safe to say that Rick Springfield isn't the world's best singer--in fact, his voice falters on many occasions. So why did I give this album a four star rating?

Because, quite simply, it's ecclectic: i.e., wonderful.

Ecclectic and rock go great together. The best rock artists have always made their best albums by fusing strange, confounding lyrics with new styles (Springsteen and "Ghost of Tom Joad," Mellencamp and "Mr. Happy Go Lucky"). That's what Springfield has done here--taken some downright strange, often meaningless (yet masterful) lyrics, put them to some great distorted guitar riffs, and created musical gems.

From the modern rock that opens the album to the folk rock that closes it, this is a great CD. In here you'll find some great musicianship (this is where Springfield's true talent lies, I think) and some listenable tunes that'll put you into a trance. Not for everyone, only for those of you who like your music with a taste of the macabre, "Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance" could quite possibly become a classic rock n roll album. If it gets the airplay it deserves.

Well, being a longtime + hardcore Rick fan for over 20 years, I always get excited when he puts out a new studio album...and this one, his first since 1999's "Karma"...I can say objectively that this sucker could very well be Rick's finest album yet!! Really?? Yep. Better than his 1980 powerpop masterpiece "Working Class Dog"?? Quite possibly!! Now, THAT's hard, a tough accomplishment!!
See, SDAA is a mixture of many things...superb powerpop tuneage, his trademark deep, thought-provoking, spiritual lyrics, and killer harmonies...BUT, he adds something here missing from many of his 80s records, a real EDGE, like, a head-banging, fist-pumping EDGE!! Woohoo!! EXHILIRATING stuff!! For those of us who have seen Rick's live shows, we know he rocks hard and LOUD, but that edge, for the most part, has been missing from his records...haha, not anymore!! Here, on SDAA, it seems as if he was able to figure out how to FINALLY capture this lightning in a bottle, and then pour it over his finest batch of tunes yet...something his longtime producers Bill Drescher and Keith Olsen were never able to do, and if there was a bit of an edge before, it tended to be sugarcoated...not here...
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trashing Rick's 80s records at all, everything Rick has released has been awesome, but hearing SDAA makes me wish ALL his records were like this...as this raw, loud, gritty sound does him justice...it adds credibility and depth, ON TOP of the substance that is already there...my suggestion, Rick must produce his own records from now until doomsday...he knows his sound best...PLUS, his songwriting and musicianship should (if this is a just world) give him the looooong-overdue respect and admiration he deserves, as well as a comeback "hit" or two...

A big surprise for everybody who thought that Rick Springfield will always stay an icon of the 80's that was left behind by the changing taste of the 90's and the new millenium. SHOCK/DENIAL/ANGER/ACCEPTANCE offers 17 new songs including one cover version of "I'll make you happy". All boast a sharp, hard and powerful sound unlike anything Rick has ever done before. Yet the irresistible hooks and melodies Rick has always provided are still in place. Lyrically he goes to unknown extremes and cuts to the bone with explorations of love/hate relationships, personal disorientation and the search for a positive perspective in an everchanging world full of trauma-inducing events. SHOCK/DENIAL/ANGER/ACCEPTANCE, the four stages of grief, will capture the hearts and minds not only of Rick's loyal long-time fans but will also get him the overdue attention as one of the great (and shamefully overlooked) singer/songwriters who keep reinventing and proving themselves. If you like rock music this album is a definite MUST!!!

I have been a huge fan for about 20 years and I have to say I've never heard Rick like this before. This CD is pure rock and it totally rocks!! I recommend it to everyone.

Although his first major hit single, "Jessie's Girl" earned Rick his place in 80's Rock History, critics have been too harsh on Rick.

Through it all, Rick has continued to write music and has proven himself to be an excellent songwriter and musician. In addition, he is a wonderful guitar player.

Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance is his best work, to date. He's over 50, but the tunes sound harder and rock more than those I hear on the raido everyday.

Idon'twantanythingfromyou, Wasted, God Gave You to Everyone, , and the newly released single, Beautiful You have what it takes to be successful singles, if the radio stations would just PLAY them. The cd is full of emotion-w/ lyrics like "God gave to you everyone, in your summer of love, God gave you to everyone, 'cause I'm not enough" and "You only want me when your high, you try to heal, but you crucify", Rick shows us a kind of vunerability that we all have.

If you get a chance to see a live concert, DO IT!! The shows are full of energy, fun, and Rick interacts with the audience throughout the show.

BOTTOM LINE: ABSOLUTELY AWESOME CD!
