5.0 out of 5 stars The sound of a young bright Britain... 5 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
Young Englishman Rick turned into an overnight superstar with this album which contains the universal hits Never Gonna Give You Up, Together Forever, Whenever You Need Somebody and When I Fall In Love. It comes as no surprise that each of the 4 singles above has reached the #1 spot somewhere around the world. With slick production from Stock/Aitken/Waterman and Phil Harding/Ian Curnow, the PWL team turned the tables on everyone and came up with a multi-platinum album. The best thing about Rick is of course his voice. The roar of a lion coming from the depths of a human. The songs written and produced by SAW are superb and brilliant and it took Rick's vocal to make them superior. White kid singing Motown songs. Never Gonna Give You Up is in the running for the best pop song of all time. Rick contributes 4 of his own songs in this album but they don't have the crunch of the SAW songs but No More Looking For Love and The Love Has Gone are solid. It's a great album to have and the sleeve is cool including a small essay on Rick. Buy it or be square!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Reissue 17 April 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Edsel Records and Sony/BMG have contributed to creating an ideal format for a reissue. They have strived to include all the remixes and extra tracks that go along with this CD. The sound quality is amazing and the layout is great. Also very meticulous liner notes and informative. Nothing about this reissue or Rick's other PWL CD "Hold Me In Your Arms" has been skimped on. Plus the price is so reasonable. I can only hope for more PWL reissues. What about the Och'i Brown album that has never been on CD ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!!! 22 May 2010
By Gav.76
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rick Astley's debut album was one of the finest of the PWL produced albums from the late 80's and I almost wore out my cassette copy back in the day!! This re-mastered re-issue is simply fan-tastic!!!!!!
The sound quality is phenomenal - no more will I have to listen to my vinyl rips cos at last ALL the 12" mixes are included as well as the original album on this 2 CD set. Have ordered the 2 Disc set of "Hold Me In Your Arms" already!
If you love all things S/A/W and want them in fantastic quality, get this before it goes out of print! I am positive these re-issues will be highly sought after in a few years to come! BRILLIANT!

Contains 4 of his 6 top ten hits. Even though songs like together forever sound very dated, songs like never gonna give you up, even today are still good to listen to. Couple these songs to rick's amazing voice and you get a 5 star album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Red-Haired Brit with the Booming Voice! 24 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is a great S/A/W produced album with top ten hits such as Together Forever and Never Gonna Give you up. While these two songs can be found on many SAW compilations as well as any 80's compilation, the rest of the album is brillant! The production is typical S/A/W fare, but you have to admit, their sound is very unique. Add that together with Rick's great voice and you have yourself a hit album!
