5.0 out of 5 stars Gem from the 80's FINALLY REMASTERED!!!, 11 July 2010
This review is from: Hunting High And Low (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
One of my favorites from the mid 1980's, "Hunting High and Low" Aha's first classic collection is finally remastered and released as this fine band calls it a day. With all the music that came out during the 80's this one stood out from the pack. That angelic vocal delivery of lead singer Morten Harket combined with a band that was really
mature(and played real instruments). Moody and atmospheric with songs that soared and in all the emotions of guys in a band in their 20's so far away from their home in Norway. I could not stop listening to these songs, I was so deep into the likes of David Bowie, Grace Jones, Lene Lovich, The Smiths, Propaganda, The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen to name a few, my taste in music was expanding faster then I could take it all in, but I knew it was a great time to be around with music videos opening our eyes and thanks to the song and video to TAKE ON ME, I was introduced to this great band. I never could understand why the media and record companies in AMERICA forced this band to be pin up boy idols and left their musicanship by the waist only to abandon them just when they left their mark, is a mystery to me. I have followed this band most of ther career, I loved them like I enjoyed bands like the Moody Blues and the Beatles from their 60's and 70's. HUNTING HIGH AND LOW is full of explosive music, harmonies and good taste. They've gone on to make so much great music over the years, but this first one is so special. Aha will be missed by those
who have a good ear for tunes but we have their legacy. Still hear the sounds of "Living a boys adventure tale" in my brain so many years later, only now it sounds so much better, yet still gives me chills from back in that time of my life. Thanks Aha for all the music, one of the all time great singers in rock pop music history. I hope you continue doing solo projects! You are all just as talented on your own but Aha no one can compare to you!

It's not a mystery to me. America didn't give a damn about Kim Wilde, Alphaville, Sandra Lauer, OMD, Kirsty MacColl, Lloyd Cole, Crowded House in the 90s, Shakespears Sister, China Crisis, Big Country, Jennifer Rush; why'd they'd be any different over A-ha? THEY DIDN'T EVEN WANT ABBA, the idiot US! See a pattern forming? That's right-ALL these artists aren't America. That sodding self-loving place only cares about the crap it churns out-and foists on us all the time, and like idiots we take it, dumb slaves to a larger greedier but less intelligent nation. To put it simply, when it comes to music, America suck. After all they gave us the biggest musical killer of all time-Madonna-and everything changed for the worst when that hag took hold of the planet and its idiot recipients. Even the few times they actually manage to give the wicked 80s a few decent artists-many of them women believe it or not-Bangles, Voice Of The Beehive, Til Tuesday, Laura Branigan, Pretenders, Belinda Carlisle, even Blondie, they care even less about them than other countries do, who generally took them to their hearts for a while. As Tracy from Voice Of The Beehive said in a 1995 press interview, "The UK took to us cos you guys have better musical tastes". Couldn't put it better myself and history and the present speak the evidence all around us. They only bothered with Duran for some of the time, and Depeche Mode, George Michael and U2 and Eurythmics cos these four are all bleeding overrated irritants undeserving of such ridiculous and continued monster success.
