Paul Anka's stint at United Artists Records began with the Top Ten, gold-selling 1974 album Anka and ended four albums later with The Music Man, which was commercially negligible. His '70s comeback was spurred by controversial and provocative adult-themed hits like "(You're) Having My Baby" and "I Don't Like to Sleep Alone," and he continued to pursue such subjects on this album of self-penned compositions that included the chart entry "My Best Friend's Wife" ("is the love of my life," goes the rest of the chorus) and the adult-themed, if not so provocative, "My Little Girl's Become a Big Girl Now," which deals with a father's feelings about his daughter's dating. The 38-year-old singer/songwriter devoted most of his lyrics to romantic situations, however, and most of those to songs of devotion and fulfillment, though his happiness could be marred by "Second Thoughts" and a "Jealous Lady." Still, "Everybody Ought to Be in Love," another singles chart entry, expressed his philosophy well. Employing the cream of Los Angeles session men, Anka produced a virtual textbook of mid-'70s pop styles, especially in the mild disco feel of "Dannon," "Slowdown," and, particularly, "Tonight," which was mostly a dance track with only rudimentary lyrics. He remained a pop craftsman, and the choruses were catchy. A serious misstep, however, was the six-minute-plus "A Mexican Night," an embarrassing story-song about being rolled by a prostitute that bore too close a resemblance to the Eagles' recent "Hotel California," right down to the twin guitars. On the whole, The Music Man was not an inspired effort, and after it only grazed the bottom of the charts, Anka parted ways with United Artists, returning to RCA the following year.
