The third album by the Greg Kihn Band (not counting their split live album with Beserkley labelmates the Rubinoos) is the first where Kihn assumes all songwriting duties. Normally, this would be a good thing, but Next of Kihn explains why his earlier albums had so many covers on them. At eight songs in barely half an hour, Next of Kihn is unforgivably skimpy on both time and content.
The Greg Kihn Band are tough survivors, a tight family. From management to music, we are two generations deep. We really care about the music and put our hearts and souls into it. This is the real thing. I have to be honest with you; there wasn’t a minute during the recording of this album when I didn’t think it was special. Every day was a kick.
Truth be told, Next of Kihn is a mixed bag, with some lengthier pieces that may have seemed ok when the record was tracked in '78, but don't quite translate forty years after the fact. It's the more concise cuts that do the trick for me - "Sorry," as well as the absolutely pumping "Cold Hard Cash" and "Museum. Maybe not the textbook definition of power pop, but they truly don't write 'em like this anymore. Incidentally, a new Kihn album is slated for later this year. 01. Cold Hard Cash 02. Museum 03.
