'Life in The Fast Lane' is every dads go to song when he's speeding down a freeway at the age of 65 thinking about how much this album meant to him in 76. I hate to break it to you but this album is sucks. How anyone can put this as the greatest of all time baffles me. I can understand its hit, but other than that...its drab.
Could this album be any more bland and boring?
Listen to the title track. If you love it like everyone does, listen to the rest, though you won't be as impressed again. A very solid selection of songs make their way onto this record, though it isn't without its stale moments with substance lacking.
'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'
