Ab 1979 ging es langsam aber sicher bergab mit Smokie. Auch wenn sie nach wie vor Hits hatten, an die hervorragenden Chartplazierungen der Jahre 1977/78 kamen sie nicht mehr heran. Die beiden Smokie Hits des Jahres „Do To Me“ und „Babe It’s Up To You“ kamen noch soeben in die deutschen Top 10. Diese beiden Titel machen das Dilemma der Gruppe deutlich, denn obwohl die Titel nicht schlecht sind, so sind doch um mindestens eine Klasse schwächer als die Kompositionen ihrer früheren Hitschreiber Nicky Chinn und Mike Chapman. Was als Albumtitel vielleicht nicht schlecht ist, ist für eine Single A-Seite eindeutig zu wenig. Wer geglaubt hatte, bei Smokie sei nun endgültig die Luft raus gewesen, der dürfte beim Anhören ihres sechsten, 1979 veröffentlichten Album „The Other Side Of The Road“ doch angenehm überrascht gewesen sein. Zwar gibt es keinen echten Knaller, allerdings auch keinen Hänger. Immerhin gibt es mit „The Other Side Of The Road“, „London Is Burning“ und „San Franciso Bay“ (war im Frühjahr 1980 in Deutschland der letzte Top 10 für Smokie). Die restlichen Stücke bieten –abgesehen von den äußerst faden Singlehits „Do To Me“ und „Babe It’s Up To You“- ansprechende, recht gute Popmusik, in denen Chris Norman, Pete Spencer, Terry Uttley und Alan Silson einmal mehr eine Kostprobe ihres handwerkliches Könnens bieten. Von allen sechs Smokie Werken der 70er Jahre ist „The Other Side Of Life“ das eindeutig schwächste, bewegt sich aber dennoch weit über dem Niveau von dem, was es damals an Popmusik gab. Besitzen muß man dieses Album nicht unbedingt, aber wenn man es hat, bietet es nichts desto Trotz angenehm hörbaren Poprock.
Letztes kommerzielles Album der Jungs aus Bradford.
Ein vielseitiges Werk, welches eigentlich mehr Anerkennung verdient hätte.
Es ist auch das erste ohne Chinnichap Kompositionen.
Das ist auch nicht mehr nötig, denn die Eigenkompositionen überzeugen.
Gesamthaft ist die Platte aber rockiger geworden.
Ein schwache Vier kann ich hier vertreten. Der ganz großer Hit fehlt mir zwar, als ganzes ist das aber doch hörbar. 4-
