Robert Palmer: Heavy Nova (1988)

robert palmer heavy novaBy Scott Goldfine

“Heavy Nova” is the new LP by veteran pop-rock singer Robert Palmer. This release comes on the heels of “Riptide,” which spawned a pair of top 5 pop singles. Palmer blends R&B, rock and other elements in a unique mix.

It works best on the uptempo track, such as “Addicted to Love” follow-up “Simply Irresistible” and the Gap Band remake “Early in the Morning.”
