On his second solo release, Robert Palmer remains close to the musical territory he had covered on his first outing, SNEAKIN' SALLY THROUGH THE ALLEY. Like its predecessor, PRESSURE DROP is a loose, groovy combination all of the most backbone-loosening elements of ska, reggae, African Juju, New Orleans funk, rock, and blues. This is head-bobbing music, flavored with tinkling piano and languorous slide guitar licks, with Palmer's rough-and-ready vocals on top of a percolating backbeat.
On hand once again is Lowell George--this time with his band, Little Feat--and the Meters, perhaps the cream of all crack session bands. While the first record had an overriding flavor of New Orleans gumbo, PRESSURE DROP shows Palmer trying his hand at a wider array of styles. The straightforward pop balladry of "Back in My Arms" and "Which of Us is the Fool" indicate the singer stepping away from pure Little Feat-style rock, while one of the strongest cuts is his faithful cover of Toots And The Maytals' immortal "Pressure Drop." Palmer contributes more of his own compositions than on his first outing, and again covers another fine Lowell George song, "Trouble."
