Although Jefferson Starship have always had something of an identity crisis, it seems more evident than ever on NUCLEAR FURNITURE. The album starts out okay with the tried and true arena rock formula of "Layin' It On The Line" and "No Way Out". Sure, they're a bit generic and saccharine sweet, better than the generic 80s fare that follows. Paul Kantner's offerings "Connection", "Rose Goes To Yale" and "Champion" attempt to pull the band back towards the socio-politics of his Airplane days. These sort of sentiments seem to ring hollow under the gloss and sheen of the new Jefferson Starship sound. The tug of war between Mickey & Paul's visions of the band make this record a bit of a mess. This also explains why they ultimately jettisoned the Jefferson moniker (and Paul Kantner) to travel even further south into pop/rock depravity with Starship.
