A few weeks ago I mentioned discovering the Moody Blues in the mid-80’s, ironic since they had been around for twenty years by that point. A similar experience that happened around the same time in my youth was with this group named Starship. Turns out that Starship was the third iteration of the band (after Jefferson Starship, which was the follow up from Jefferson Airplane), but it was their 1985 album Knee Deep in the Hoopla that was my doorway.
The main track, We Built This City, still holds up well, even if it is a far cry from the psychedelia of their earlier tracks like White Rabbit and Somebody to Love.
