“Breaking All The Rules” is former Herd & Humble Pie guitarists Peter Frampton’s 8th studio LP. Originally released in 1981, sessions for this album began in late 1979. Frampton hosts a stellar cast of core musicians on this LP, including Toto’s drummer Jeff Porcaro & guitarist Steve Lukather. Rounding out the band is multi-instrumentalist Arthur Stead and bassist John Regan.

Frampton has had a tough time equaling his earlier success of his first 4 studio LP’s and “Frampton Comes Alive” success. He tries hard here; the only problem with this album (despite it’s great musicianship) is that it sounds very ‘formula’ and not as musically diverse as Frampton’s previous work. The wide range of styles of Frampton’s work in the past is what set him apart from so many and contributed to his superstar success.

Lyrically, this record sounds as if Frampton is going through some tough times. “You Kill Me” is an average rocker, nothing exciting or dynamic. Same thing with “Going To L.A.”; could have been a throwaway track for years past. “Lost Part Of You” is a great song and could have been a great track, but someone in the verse his voice sounds strained. It’s amazingly odd that Frampton would cover a few songs here. The Alessi Brothers “Rise Up” and The Easybeats “Friday On My Mind”. Both versions are really pretty good. The closer and title track “Breaking All The Rules” is a 7 minute rocker, featuring Lukather & Frampton and their battling guitar antics. Sounds like it could have been cut live in the studio. Not my choice of Frampton LP’s to purchase, but if you like 80’s corporate rock, then this for you!
