While former Mott the Hoople singer/songwriter Ian Hunter's solo career started out strong, he stumbled on his third album, OVERNIGHT ANGELS. One of the reasons might have been the absence of longtime guitar foil/fellow Mott man Mick Ronson, who happily reappeared on the follow-up, YOU'RE NEVER ALONE WITH A SCHIZOPHRENIC. Perhaps not coincidentally, Hunter's fourth solo effort features some of the strongest (and most beloved) songs in his catalog. "Cleveland Rocks" is a hard-charging, Mott-like tune (many years later it would have a second life as the theme of TV's Drew Carey show), while "Ships" is a sweeping, romantic ballad, one of Hunter's loveliest (it would eventually be covered by none other than Barry Manilow). From poignant down-tempo tunes to tough-sounding rockers, SCHIZOPHRENIC is one of Hunter's most consistent solo albums.
