Where the Action Is - Fairly Good, Based on 1 Critics

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Like a briefer, though similarly eclectic sequel to 2017's ambitious double-album Out of All This Blue, the Waterboys' 13th outing, Where the Action Is, sees Mike Scott continuing his unexpected dalliance with dance and hip-hop-influenced rhythms, while also delivering the more straightforward rock bangers and folk-infused introspections that are his bread and butter. It also maintains the prolific run of material that started with 2015's Modern Blues, marking a surprisingly fertile period which also saw the band's return to the higher reaches of the U.K. album charts.
