Format: Audio CD
on my cd-player once in a while. Even if not his overall best, with running against the wind this cd contains one of his best songs both lyrically and melodically. Even if played to death on the radio back in the old times when radio was still THE medium, it still remains the a great song.

Other highlights in my opinion include you'll accompany me, fire lake and shine on brightly. But also the rockers are not bad at all.

Bob Seger's curse is that he is famous for his "easy listening" ballads while he is an excellent rocker. PLAY IT LOUD and you will hear what I mean.

Had the album when it first came out, played it over and over. Heard "Shinin' Brightly" and it renewed my love for Bob Segers music. The best then as it is now!

Have had an old copy of this album for years and the re-mastered CD brings it to life all over again.

A great CD.

Twenty years after the fact 22 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Seger released this album when I was a junior in high school. I didn't listen to it much then; not enough head-banging for my tastes at the time. Being older and wiser these days, I love this album. "Against the Wind" is I think the second best song Seger has ever written. "Like a Rock" was my favorite but once he sold out to Chevy it's much harder to listen too. "Shinin' Brightly," and "You'll Accomp'ny Me" are also just outstanding. One thing you have to say about Bob Seger: he writes and performs his music honestly and with passion. If you're looking for canned, over-produced music, this awesome album is not for you.

A GREATEST HITS COLLECTION 24 Feb 2004
By B Ardell Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album was the high water mark of Seger's career, though many of us didn't realize it. "Against The Wind" was the third of a four album run that permanently established Seger as major force in rock music.
For a while, Seger towered over everyone in rock music, including Bruce Springsteen, but less product, albums and tours, allowed Seger's star to fade leading to an almost has-been perception by the early 1990s.
This album is a brilliant showcase of Seger's talent and a sad reminder of what could have been, if not for missed opporunities.
It is one of the strongest records ever made. There are no "bad" songs and several classic hits. In many ways, it is Seger's third Greatest Hits album.

Seger Struts 20 July 2001
By P Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band changed their sound a bit for the release of 1980's Against The Wind. While the album included songs like the great "Her Strut", "Horizontal Bop" and "Betty Lou's Getting Out Tonight" which are rockers in the classic Seger vein, much of the album takes on a country tone. Having co-written The Eagles' number one hit "Heartache Tonight" which has a country rock flavor, Mr. Seger follows that course on the album. The title track is a lamenting song that has a somber tone while "You'll Accomp'ny Me" is a pretty and longing. The best song on the album is the powerful and foreboding "Fire Lake" which Eagles Don Henley & Glenn Frey return the favor by lending back up vocals. Against The Wind become Mr. Seger's one and only number one album and spent six weeks at the top.

Only one worth the money 23 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is perhaps the only cd that I have ever bought that was worth the money. I dished out the cash, primarily for "Her Strut," and over a year later, it still sits in my cd player. I'm 18 and am flooded with today's garbage---and there is still nothing like good ol' Seger. This cd is definitely worth the money and the music's great!

Classic Rock 13 Sep 2003
By W. Grandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album was always my favourite Seger album. Includes hits such as 'Against The Wind', 'Fire Lake' and another that should have been a huge hit "Betty Lou's Gettin Out Tonight'. For some unknown reason, 'Fire Lake' wasn't included in his greatest hits collection. Great sax on several selections and vocal backups by the likes of Don Henley and Glen Frey. This remastered version has none of the flat sound of the origional nor are the highs ultra sharp. Great remastering job on a really wonderful disc.
