As soon as REO Speedwagon's second album - aptly titled . kicks off with "Let Me Ride," it's clear that the band has made some significant strides in gaining a personality. Part of this is due to singer Terry Luttrell being swapped out for Kevin Cronin, whose keening tenor is markedly different from Luttrell's bluesy gargle, and part is due to three of the songs, dramatic multi-sectioned rockers, being more distinguished than the pedestrian boogie of the debut

REO Speedwagon (originally stylized as . Speedwagon) is an American rock band. Formed in 1967, the band cultivated a following during the 1970s and achieved significant commercial success throughout the 1980s.

The AllMusic reviewer disparages "Being Kind (Can Hurt Someone Sometime)" while I consider it to be a very strong song----my favorite REO song to this day; Cronin evinces rare insight into paradoxes inherit in relationships and in life itself, and does it through thoughtful lyrics, complex song structure and intense, emotional vocalizing. The AM reviewer also doesn't even mention the broad socio-political criticism of America in the anthemic "Golden Country," one of the band's best songs. Both these songs are sung with much heart by Cronin, and Richrath's guitar work and colorful, meaningful lyrics on the latter is astonishing; this Richrath song is also well-wrought structurally. These two songs make the album worth having. None of the other songs have the energy, emotional intensity, or the the complexity of these two, though these others are fairly good and worth hearing. A pretty good record, overall. I've been listening to it since it came out. One of my rocker sons did some heavy teen-teething on it and still references the album, in conversation, as an early influence on him as a virtuoso lead guitarist.

I was 13 when I saw Humble Pie Rocking the Fillmore tour and 15 when I saw the Reo TWO tour and I was hooked. For a teenager in the 70's it didn't get much better. REO had a great stage presence and an energy not easily matched. True they didn't maintain that level their entire career but then again what band did. They always put on a great show and loved their music and fans. I still play this album from time to time and think about what a great experience it was seeing it performed. The cover of the album was the exact lighting image they used on stage. How cool was that.

Although this second album was by no means a "homerun", the songwriting of Kevin Cronin and Gary Richrath and begun and a couple of REO "gems" were born already. These songs, although the band had no way of knowing at the time, would become staples of their live shows for decades. Still considered a "rock" band by their loyal local following, this album struggled to gain them mainstream success and they continued to tour the bar and club scene throughout the midwest. On a personal note, I liked Cronin's vocals much more than I did Terry Lutrell's from their first album.
