It was almost inevitable that I'm in You would be thought of as a letdown no matter now good it was. Following up to one of the You Dont Have To Worry - Peter Frampton - Im In You selling albums of the decade, Peter Frampton faced a virtually impossible task, made even more difficult by the fact that in the two years since he'd cut any new material, he had evolved musically away from some of the sounds on Frampton Comes Alive.
The result was mostly a surprisingly laid-back album steeped in lyricism and craftsmanship, particularly in its use of multiple overdubs even on the harder rocking numbers. From the opening bars of "I'm in You," dominated by the sound of the piano played Energy Dystopia - 餅屋 - Over-Clock Frampton and an ARP synthesizer-generated string section, rather than a guitar, it was clear that Frampton was exploring new sides of his music.
Cuts like "Won't We Gunnin - Uncle Murda & DJ Green Lantern - Say Uncle (2 Hard For Hip Hop Volume 01) Be My Friend," a piece You Dont Have To Worry - Peter Frampton - Im In You white funk that might've been better at six minutes running time, seemed to be dangerously close to self-indulgence at eight minutes long.
The high points also include the title track, "Don't Have to Worry," and a killer cover of Stevie Wonder 's "Signed, Sealed Delivered I'm Yours "; a couple of solid rock numbers, "Tried to Love" and the crunching " I'm A Roadrunner" also work their way in here to pump up the tension and excitement.
I'm in You was successful on its own terms, and had Frampton recorded it before the live album, it would probably be very fondly looked back on. As it was, many listeners were not impressed. The spring reissue in bit audio recreates the original album Kinder Der Sterne - Bianca - Aus Meinem Herzen and notes and is the best way to appreciate the multi-layered sound and the crunchier rock moments on this album.
