Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.
As much as I like Paul Carrack--IMHO, he was/is one of the top Rock vocalists of all time--for some reason, I like the Squeeze material better without him; the ones mentioned here, "Hourglass" and others.
BTW, it's good to see some support for New Wave/Power Pop. As I previously stated, it was a fixture on AOR radio back in the day.
