5.0 out of 5 stars Classic up-tempo rock album 21 Jan 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Prior to recording this album, REO Speedwagon had been around for many years having a measure of success in their American homeland. This album took their career to a much wider audience at home while gaining international recognition for them, including the first two of their three UK hits.
About half the tracks climbed high in the American charts, with Keep on loving you hitting the very top - it also made the UK top ten. Take it on the run, also a huge American hit, made the UK top twenty. Don't let him go and In your letter were among the other American hits. The music is almost relentlessly up-tempo.
Any group that has such a long career (and plenty that don't) inevitably go through personnel changes. The line-up that recorded this album was Kevin Cronin (lead vocals, guitar), Gary Richrath (lead guitar), Alan Gratzer (drums), Neal Doughty (keyboards) and Bruce Hall (bass guitar). Kevin's strong but well-controlled vocals backed by the superb musicianship of the other members made this album a classic.
Good as their other albums are (at least the ones I've heard including Good trouble and Wheels, the two that followed this one), this is the album for which REO Speedwagon will be remembered for in America (where it was the biggest selling rock album of 1981) and elsewhere (where it gave them recognition that they previously didn't have).
If you only buy one REO Speedwagon album, make it this one - even ahead of a hits collection. Most of their greatest hits are here.

5.0 out of 5 stars words can not say enough 26 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
i bought this originally on vinyl, which i still proudly own. when cds came out it was one of the first albums i bought. i cannot express enough the contents of this cd, every single track is exceptional,which cannot be said about most cds! i have been looking for a copy for my son, who feels the same as i do. this cd once heard will be played innumerable times, one just never tires of it. i speak with over 20 years experience, what better recommendation could you want? i do not usually voice my oppinions but feel this cd is worthy of every bit of praise possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars REO Speedwagon Hi Infidelity 8 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
This takes me back. When I was a teenager, I generally preferred US based rock music [Boston, Styx, Kansas etc] to our home grown acts. I was aware of REO Speedwagon but this album was the first I heard - it was their first to make an impact on UK listeners.

The song on the album that everyone seemed to be listening to was 'Keep on Loving You', which reminds me a bit of Foreigner. I am glad to say that the rest of the album is just as enjoyable. I am finding myself playing the whole album every other day at the moment.

There is plenty of variety of styles on show here. 'Keep on Loving You' and 'Take it on the Run' [which are very similar] are both very catch pop/rock tracks. 'Don't Let him Go' sounds a little like Fleetwood Mac. 'In your Letter' is in an enjoyable doo-wap song and the closing song, 'I Wish you were There' is quite gospel-like in style. The other songs are heavier and more rock and roll in style.

Sometimes it doesn't do to revisit stuff that you enjoyed in your youth. I sometimes cringe at the naff lyrics and sounds of some bands. I have not had that experience with this album. It doesn't sound particularly dated to me either - I really enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAKES ME FEEL LIKE I'M 18 AGAIN 17 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this album on cassette back in '81. I loved it at the time, I was young, free & single. At the time I was working as a van driver at a furniture shop, had just discovered motorbikes & was having a fantastic life. This was one of the essential albums that we'd slap on the cars cassette player when we went out.

I'd looked it up a few times as one of those "must replace" albums, but it was always hanging around the 13 - 15 quid mark, which I thought was a bit too much for a ten track CD that I could only remember three of the tracks & would probably a be a let down (listening through rose-tinted headphones?)

Then it popped up as a two-disc set at just over seven quid & I decided to give it a whirl. Never quite sure about returning to a favourite album of your youth - it can be a bit like arranging to meet up with that stunning bird you went out with thirty years ago - invariably, time will not have been kind & you should have cherished the memory you had.

Slapped it in the player as soon as it arrived - that cracking girlfriend has turned into a sexy MILF who remembers all the things she used to do to turn you one. Instantly transported back to the summer of '81, standing in the shop window with my mate Dave (sorry about the Sian incident bud) watching the girls walking back to the factory after lunch, nights out down town with Col, Paul & the rest of the lads, tearing around on noisy 250s thinking we were Sheen.

OK, so it sounds like the dated piece of American AOR that it is; it's stodgy & over produced, disc 2 is just everything that's on disc 1, but not as slick & in a different order. But to be honest, I don't care! The wife doesn't get it.
