What would you get if you crossed the Tubes ' singer with Toto? As awful as Tube-To sounds, at least it would have had some name recognition. Fee Waybill 's name couldn't draw flies to a picnic, despite the Tubes ' recent commercial success.
For future reference, any solo album that features a song called "I Could've Been Somebody" probably isn't destined for greatness. If Fee Waybill - Read My Lips Tubes were a faceless band, Fee gets the material he deserves: generic studio rock with generic concerns life, love. It wouldn't be unfair to expect Read My Lips to sound like Outside Insideexcept that the Tubes were a working group. Imagine that album with one-seventh of the creativity, and you're getting hot.
David Foster and his coterie simply don't have the contagious energy of the Tubeswhich makes otherwise lively cuts like "Who Loves You Baby" sound pre-processed and lifeless. In hindsight, The Witch - Various - Chaos En Franche-Comté was the beginning of the end, with Love Bomb providing the final nail in the coffin.
