4.0 out of 5 stars City Boy doing what they do, do well... 26 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD after reading someone's 5 star review and was not disappointed. The album is very strong on what City Boy do best: wonderful tunes, gutsy guitars, riffs & lead guitar to die for, excellent lead vocals and glorious harmonies. The album is good on first listening and gets ever stronger everytime I play it. The standout track for me is Lovers with No Ordinary Life, Names & Addresses, and Rat Race close behind. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Album??? More like THE LOST BAND!!! 9 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is afew years ahead of its time (1981), still sounds great and not atall dated.
The best four remainding band members (no offence Steve), with their last production, but by far their best. Great lyrics (a touch of Lol Mason's sense of humour creeps through), masterful production with awsome harmonies (on par with Queen!), great guitar licks by the very underated Mike Slammer complemeted by Max Thomas keyboard work and the ageless Roy Ward on Drums (& vocals) - by far one of the top drummers of all time.

How the hell 'Mutt' Lange let these guys slip away and never got this production into the music shops is beyond me!

An absolute gem - 'Names and Addresses' - I would buy this album over and over again just for this track. One of the best songs ive heard in the last 20+ years.
Other awesome tracks: 'Rat Race' - Vocal harmonies to die for!; 'The Blind Leading The Blind', 'La Guerra De Mondo' & 'Exit The Heavyweight'. These track alone make the album one of my best buys EVER!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 2 Feb 2010
By Rick Dutkiewicz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is an amazing discovery for all City Boy fans. This 1981 album is from the same time period as "Heads Are Rolling". Same line up; Roy Ward on drums, Mike Slamer on guitars, Max Thomas on keyboards and Lol Mason on vocals. And the songs are all very good. Great song-writing, great production. What a treat!

3.0 out of 5 stars City Boy Calls It A Day 28 Dec 2009
By Brian Case - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's Personal, City Boy's second post Mutt Lange produced release, has one of my favorite bands taking their final curtain call. Recorded at Battery Studios, The Farmyard and Rockfield Studios (per their official website) It's Personal flows quickly song to song. I've looked high and low for this release for years, only to find out it would be available before Christmas this year.
My review of City Boy's album Heads Are Rolling had me thinking that was their last album - I was wrong. It's Personal was their last and it's good time rock. The band sounds quite stripped down with the four members, not six. I would compare the majority of the songs on par with the ones on City Boy's release, Young Men Gone West, which was recorded with a first time American tour in mind. I would rate it about the same as YMGW, but it lacks the depth and punch of say .... Dinner At The Ritz or The Day The Earth Caught Fire. The wait is over and I feel somewhat saddened that there's no new music available from these guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff 18 Feb 2010
By Torben Foli - Published on Amazon.com

This is truly great stuff. It brings back memories of the 80's. I never understood why City Boy wasn't a bigger succes then.

The harmonies and melodies are just fab.

One of my favorite groups from the 80's. While this is not my favorite album of the group it is great to listen too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Last City Boy Album... 29 Nov 2011
By JohnC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was the last album recorded by the band City Boy. It was released in 1981 over in Europe, but never released in the US. Anyway, when I finally got it I was NOT disappointed. This is a terrific album, and well worth the price.

Vocals are handled by Lol Mason and Roy Ward (mostly Roy) and are not as complicated as the older City Boy albums (with Steve Broughton) were.

As with all City Boy albums, Mike Slamer's guitar work is excellent. His playing is both powerful and tasteful, depending on the song.

Max Thomas is terrific as always; his piano is front and center on "Exit the Heavyweight."

My favorite tracks are No Ordinary Life, Rat Race, Lovers, It's Personal and Exit the Heavyweight.

Bottom line: While not as strong as their previous effort, "Heads are Rolling," this is still a great album. How this band never made it big, I'll never know!
