  • Summary: The Australian singer best known for the 1981 hit "Jessie's Girl" and as Dr. Noah Drake on "General Hospital," returns with his first album of original songs since 2004's "Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance."

  1. By letting all of his sides surface here, Springfield winds up with a satisfying album, as it gets to his sober nature without abandoning his fizzy gifts.
  2. The all-original Venus in Overdrive demonstrates the strengths that keep Springfield in the game: broad stylistic range and pure emotional energy.
  3. Venus in Overdrive rarely strays from Springfield's down-the-middle pop-rock blueprint.
  4. It's a slick collection heavy on pop hooks and packed with glossy guitars and studio-perfect bass and drums. Too perfect, in fact: these 12 songs have had all the personality produced right out of them.
