I had this album in the mid/late 80's on tape, and played it to death in the car, these guy's hailed from the midlands and they where in my opinion very talented! try this particular album for yourself especially if you like rock in the melodic sense with big vocals and some good guitar soloing with excellent keyboards and drums thrown in, and a voice that as far as I can remember sampled from a pinball machine prior to the guitar solo, on the track "under fire" try it you won't be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing "SHY" about this album 2 Feb 2004
By cradle1scot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Simply the best Shy album to date. Their latest album "Unfinished Buisness" is superb but this one still takes some beating. Still has lasted the test of time and is still the most played album by any band I like. Can't fight the nights is a cracker and they even manage to make Devil Woman ( a Cliff Richard song ) their own. As expected the ballads from shy over all their albums are first class. "Just love me" will have the air guitar out by the time the solo starts and and all too soon the album is over with "Telephone".. A cracking album which will certainly get it's money worth with the amount of times you play this over the years.
5.0 out of 5 stars SHY - Excess All Areas 1 Nov 2005
By Richy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
SHY turn on the class and release their best album. Every tune is an AOR gem. Tony Mill's is a superb vocalist and the guitar and keyboard and drums complement each other excellently. Three singles came off this album. A must have for melodic rock fans.

It is Shy's only hit album and deserved to go higher in the UK charts. However this album put SHY on the rock map.

Highlights include Talk to Me, Young Heart, and the bonus track Only You - Brilliant. Classy songs and song writing with an energised delivery.

For more information on this excellent album have a look at WWW.AOROCK.com - and click on the Excess All Areas album title in table.

3.0 out of 5 stars SEARCHING FOR THEIR NEXT ALBUM 30 Oct 2001
By WILD CHILD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This band later changed their name to Shy England and put out another album. I have the cassette, but would like another copy-preferably on CD. The album is titled "Mispent Youth". Songs include "Give It All You Got", "After the Love Is Gone". I've searched and searched, but have been unable to find the album. If I could rate that album, I would give it 5 stars. It has everything that the Shy album has, but much more developed. 80's hair band-definately, and they do it very well!!! High energy rockers, and very cool power ballads--everything that defined the 80's

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love 80s "hair bands", you will love this entire CD! 25 Jan 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is filled with flashy guitar riffs and high range of singing that was so popular in the 80s--you know, the type of band that if you sang along with a song, your throat would hurt for days. Tons and tons of keyboards. A few very well written "power ballads". This CD is very old (I think I bought it around '85-'86...when I was 15), I thought it was a great tape then, and I still think it's a very good CD now.
