The Rumour's Squeezing Out Sparks album. The Rumour - Squeezing Out Sparks Album Lyrics. You Can’t Be Too Strong Lyrics.

Throughout Squeezing Out Sparks, Graham spits out a litany of offenses that make him feel like an outsider, but he's not a liberal, he's a conservative. The record's two centerpieces - "Passion Is No Ordinary Word" and the anti-abortion "You Can't Be Too Strong" - indicate that his traditionalist musical tendencies are symptomatic of a larger conservative trend.

Squeezing Out Sparks is no landmark. If you’re looking for an LP with the coherence and weight of Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness on the Edge of Town, you may be disappointed. The album, rather, is one chapter in the story Graham Parker and the Rumour are telling - a tale sometimes subverted by weaknesses of nerve, imagination or craft, a tale of true fear and drama. It’s often been said that the work of those artists we most care about becomes part of our own autobiographies.
