After listening to all of the Mike & the Mechanics albums, I decided to go explore Paul Carrack's music. And let me say, it was worth it!

"Groove Approved" is one of many Carrack's solo albums. This one by far is one of his finest. The sound of 80's rock-pop can be heard throughout this album and it's truly classic. The big songs on here are "Only My Heart can Tell" and "I Live by the Groove." "Dedicated" is one of Carrack's best ballads and "I"m on Your Tail" is a blend of rock-pop and soul that sounds like it's taking place live. "Tip of tongue" is upbeat pop featuring M&M singer Paul Young in backing vocals. My favorite from this album is "Love Can Break your Heart" for its catchy chorus, music, and the backing vocals featuring Daryl Hall and Michael McDonald. Every other song is pretty good, too. After listening to this album it makes you wish you heard these songs earlier!

I highly recommend this album, especially if you like Mike & the Mechanics, Paul Carrack, or if you like 80's pop. It's hard to find, but worth the search! Also, "One Good Reason" and "Suburban Voodoo" are also recommended. If you haven't listened to Mike & the Mechanics, I recommend all their albums! I'm currently exploring Carrack's more recent works and looking forward to writing reviews in the future.

Perhaps more so than on any other Paul carrack solo project, Groove Approved represents the influence of the more commercial pop success of his work with Mike and The Mechanics in the mid to late 1980s. Released after the first two successful Mechanics albums (the self-titled 1985 album and Living Years), Groove Approved completely sheds Carrack Pub Rock sound and ventures on for a more period '80s pop feel far beyond what his previous solo project, One Good Reason, did.

That being said, while the album has a somewhat dated sound when listened to now, there is some great song writing on this record. "Dedicated" is one of Carrack's best ballads, "After The Love Is Gone" is another great track, and the catchy pop single "I Live By The Groove" is hard to shake from memory. Also of note, fellow Mechanics vocalist Paul Young appears on back-up vocals on "Tip of My Tongue!"

While Groove Approved is not Paul Carrack's best solo album, it is a great period piece of '80s pop music and holds it's own with a few really good tracks. If you enjoyed the first couple of Mike and The Mechanics albums or his One Good Reason solo album, this disc will not disappoint you.
