I've bought everything JA/JS ever recorded and this is my favorite. It's totally pop metal, but not so completely sold-out that the Jefferson needed to be removed. Actually it's Paul Kantner's last album with the group. "No way out", "Laying it on the Line" were both big hits, and rightly so, and stand up today. However, the best songs on the album are "Rose goes to yale" and "Champion", seemingly parts 2 and 3 from "Freedom at Point Zero's" "lightnight rose". Get it, enjoy and shut it. It's the best.

I look at the release of this album by Jefferson Starship in a similar light that I do the mid to late 80's releases by Black Sabbath. Two bands names who garnered so much attention and respect for a particular style and sound in the late 60's and early 70's that when it came time for the band to update their sound and the name remains the same, traditional fans get unruly. I think the album before this called "Modern Times" already had some leanings towards the type of radio-friendly pop rock that makes it's first headstrong and front-to-back appearance on this album. This same group of musicians (mostly anyway) would later cancel the "Jefferson" in their name and become known as just "Starship". This name is synonimous with tunes like "We Built This City", "Sara" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" to those of us who grew up listening to 80's rock. This album, the last one under the old monnicker is filled with the same great style of 80's pop rock music that the later 80's releases were! Only trouble is, some of us never knew about it until later on, because of the band's two name stereotyping (that would be me!). When I finally discovered this record, it was like a dream! I always loved the efforts of the Starship projects like "Knee Deep In Hoopla" and "Love Among The Cannibals" and to find that this was the same style was amazing and wonderful! In fact, other than "It's Not Enough" from the "Love Among The Cannibals" LP, "No Way Out" from "Nuclear Furniture" just might be my favorite (Jefferson) Starship song of all time! Forget the reviews of this album that mention the music as "simplistic" and "thrown together" and talking about them "selling-out" . Music is a funny thing, and times change.Read more ›

Grace Slick had been back for a few years when this was released in 1984. One thing about Jefferson Starship is that, due to so many different songwriting inputs, they are consistently inconsistent. Whenever Mickey and Grace did a duet it was a treasure to behold; however, Kantner's songs are like a completely different world. Sometimes it doesn't even sound like the same band. Their strong points were always the lead singing of Mickey, Grace, and Marty along with Craig's soaring lead guitar.

For this album the hits were Laying It On The Line and No Way Out. Like other reviewers have noted there are three songs on here related to the Lightning Rose song on the album Freedom At Point Zero. So, what we get here is an album that is part JS that we know and love, and part conceptual work of the story of Lightning Rose. A dis-jointed album, but worthy of three and a half stars *** 1/2

For better or worse, the Jefferson Airplane/Starship were democratic bands, giving room for a lot of band members to have their say in songwriting. When everyone was more or less on the same page, fans would get diverse yet cohesive albums such as "Surrealstic Pillow", "Volunteers", "Dragonfly" or "Freedom at Point Zero". When they weren't, however, you ended up with disjointed works like "Spitfire" or the disastrous "Bark."

This album, the eighth from the Starship, is somewhere in the middle. By this time, the band had four separate factions of songwriters: rhythm guitarist/vocalist Paul Kantner's sci-fi/fantasy visions; singer Grace Slick, solo or with outsiders; bassist/keyboardist Pete Sears, providing music to his wife Jeanette's lyrics; and the pair-up of singer Mickey Thomas and lead guitarist Craig Chaquico.

This could have been very messy, but the band made the smart decision to bring back producer Ron Nevison, who had worked on the group's first two albums with Thomas as well as Grace's most recent solo album, "Software". Nevison also brought along Grace's songwriting partner from that album, Austrian keyboardist Peter Wolf.

Wolf provided most of the keyboard parts and arrangements to the album, which results in a signficant change in the JS sound. On "Freedom at Point Zero" and "Modern Times", Nevison let the guitars dominate, with keyboards in a support role. Here, Wolf's synthesizers are on an equal footing with the guitars in the mix. Combining this with new drummer Donny Baldwin's more basic rhythms and some drum machines, we have a slicker, more "80's" sound from the group.

That's not all bad, because it lends a coherence that might have otherwise been missing from the album. For instance, even so, the Searses' songs are all over the place.
