On his '80s recordings, Newman relied on a slick, poppy wall of sound provided by the L.A. session vets that were his longtime compatriots. It's hard to tell whether the smooth, L.A. sound that permeates records like TROUBLE IN PARADISE was an ironic tool to distance Newman from his lyrics, or whether he just dug that sound. Whatever the case, the listener is forced to focus more intently on the lyrics, and the dark sentiments often expressed attain that more of an effective ironic contrast.
There's an ironic paean to Newman's home town ("I Love L.A".), a stab at racism ("Christmas in Capetown") and a stinging satire of California high rollers ("My Life is Good"). On "The Blues", where he's joined by Paul Simon, Newman deflates his own profession, making light of those who express personal pain through music. It's this kind of self-conscious humility that makes Newman's music interesting no matter what the sonic setting.
