With "Bula Quo" the old warriors have released the soundtrack to the film of the same name (action comedy, a genre that hasn't really interested anyone since the eighties). It appears in a six-page Digipak with booklet - together with a new studio album. They can't top the last album "Quid Pro Quo" with the studio recordings, because hula-hop sounds ("Mystery Island") or highly trenchant reggae ("Fiji Time") exceed the pain threshold. However, boogie rockers like "GoGoGo" or "Running Inside My Head" and the rock-hard "Run And Hide" have at least a nice entertainment value. To the soundtrack: The actually beautiful "Living On An Island" in a "Fiji-Style"-version didn't have to be, in addition there is a "Rocking All Over The World (Bula Edit)" cut without feeling, tracks from the last studio record and - here it's really off - live versions from Montreux from 2010 (among others "Down Down", "Whatever You Want"). Quite decent for fans. But newcomers should better enjoy the really cool Seventies albums from Quo.
