5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest AOR albums ever 15 Dec 2013
By MacDee
Format:Audio CD
This is without doubt one the finest AOR albums ever released. Shy were one of the most under-rated British bands of the early eighties, built around the sublime song-writing skills of Steve Harris. Steve's skill matured as time went by and the songs on here stand side by side with the best of Journey, Foreigner, et al. Steve's guitar playing was outstanding also; I defy anyone to listen to the extended guitar solos on 'Mary-Anne' and not have the hairs on the back of their neck stand up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hugely pleasing return to form! 11 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved these guys from the first time I heard "Excess All Areas" back in the '80s. If you know anything about Shy you'll know what a mess was made of their 1989 release, "Misspent Youth", the poor production of which lost them any chance of real success back then.

Fast forward to 2005 and all but one of the original line-up are back together for this release, which I stumbled across a couple of years ago and only bought this year.

I'm so glad I took the plunge!

Honestly, both the quality of the songwriting and the playing on this CD are astonishing - there are some fully-formed AOR classics here which, whilst delivering the familiar Shy sound, are well-crafted and exciting. Great rockers (e.g. Communicate), great ballads (e.g. Mary-Anne), all good.

One of those CDs I now wish I'd bought sooner - BUY!

5.0 out of 5 stars An AOR Melodic Classic 26 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album shows Shy at there best. If you like your Rock/Metal Melodic then this albums a must have. From the opening "Skydiving" your reminded of Journey. Tony Mills vocals gliding effortlessly over the guitars & keyboards. "Breakaway" opens with a nice catchy riff, & has a killer hooky chorus. "Mary-Anne" is the obligatary ballard, not to soapy but you no what`ya gonna get from the opening chords !! "Communication" has a really great opening riff reminded me in some respects of Def Leppard. " Heaven Tonight" finds Shy back onto the big hooky chorus`s, as does the Brian Adams`ish "Can`t Stop Loving You" & "No Other Way" a great song to end an album. "Storyline" has one of those Keyboardy passages you`ve heard a million times by Journey, a slow to mid paced tune. The production values on this album are great as is the playing. Steve Harris guitars sound espiecially smooth there`s also some fantastic guitar solos on this album. if there was any justice in this world then this album would go multi platinum & you`d be hearing these great catchy songs all over the radio alas in a world were co-operate business men are determined to destroy music with Pop Idol crap Shy & there like are a breath of fresh air, not original maybe but good non the less If your into Melodic Rock/Metal then this is a must buy. Check out Shy on My Space were you can hear how good they are if you need any persuading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back with a "BANG" 21 Jan 2004
By cradle1scot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Unfinished Buisness" !!! Well the album title sums it all up. The boys are back together, where they should be as well might I add. Tony Mills is a fantastic singer who belts out songs as if his life depends on it. None better than the stand out track "Breakaway". This song will have your hairs on the back of your neck standing up applauding. Such emotion by Tony. His range is tested to the limit and boy is he up for the challenge. Never holding back, always giving everything to every song on the album. I could go on about how great all the tracks are, but I wont. Buy it and see for yourself. I thought "Excess all Areas" would never be beaten but this album has surpassed all expectations. Tony....... you are my hero. God Bless Shy.
4.0 out of 5 stars Had to get used to the new sound of the old voice. 7 Feb 2013
By D. A. Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I first listened to this album my only exposure to SHY was from their latest album, which has a different vocalist on it. I really loved that album so I bought this one. I realized when I bought it that it used a different vocalist, but I wasn't prepared for the annoying high pitch of his voice. I realize also that this person is, from what I have read, their original and most beloved voice. I experienced quite a bit of ear-shock at first, but it kind of grows on you after a while. Plus, I just can't ignore the awesome music which is what I tried to focus on during my initial listen. Overall, I am glad I gave it a chance. I have become accustomed to his voice now. I don't think that I didn't like his voice at first, so much as that it was just so far removed from what I was used to hearing from this band.
4.0 out of 5 stars Back on track 21 May 2011
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
2002's Unfinished Business was the seventh studio album from UK-based melodic rockers Shy and the first new album from the band in more than a decade. Led by vocalist Tony Mills (now with TNT), Shy was always one of the better, if consistently overlooked `80s era melodic rock bands, and it was good to hear from them in the new millennium.

Unfinished Business is a very strong melodic rock album. It's got some of that `80s rock energy, but the band is obviously older and wiser, and the songwriting reflects that. It's a more elegant and polished Shy we're hearing here. Some things remain true though, like Tony Mills' very distinct and very powerful voice. Tony Harnell, who Mills would later replace in TNT, is the only other guy who sounds like this. It helps that the music is well written, performed flawlessly and loaded with great melodies.

Unfinished Business is a very strong comeback album from one of the better bands the melodic rock scene has to offer. If you were a fan back in the day, I'd highly recommend checking this album out. It makes a great starting point for those who are new to the band but enjoy similar bands like TNT, Tyketto, Giant and Strangeways.

5.0 out of 5 stars AOR's Best Do It Again!! 27 Dec 2005
By Stuart M. Tysinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Shy is a British AOR group that is very talented. In the vein of Hugo & Journey they will amaze you. This was definitely the best cd of 2002 in this genre & many others. There are no fillers here, just rockers & ballads that are well written & played. If you do not know about Shy, pick up this cd & "Excess All Areas" that will be a good start. Highlights are: Breakaway, Mary-Anne, Heaven Tonight & No Other Way. If you like bands like Treat, Journey, Hugo/Valentine, Bangalore Choir this cd is for you.
