Format: Audio CD
The first seven tracks cannot be faulted and show a variation of styles all underpinned by Rea's superb guitar playing and, in Joys of Christmas and Gonna Buy a Hat, witty lyrics of the highest quality. After these, the quality varies a bit. However, there is some great work to come in Loving You Again and I Don't Care Anymore. Not quite as consistent an album as Road to Hell or as laid back as Espresso Logic or God's Great Banana Skin but worthy of 4 stars and essential for any Rea fan who picked up on him with RTH.

This is a quality Rea record - loads of catchy, atmospheric tunes. "Joys of Christmas", "Windy Town", "Gonna buy a hat", "Loving You again" and "Lets dance" are all superb. To be honest there are no dud tracks on this one and Rea is at the top of his game.
This LP was the half way through his run of 80's Classics and this is a great purchase alongside "Wired to The Moon", "Shamrock Diaries", "On The Beach" and "Road to Hell".
This CD is a must buy - so go on BUY IT!!!!

I've had this in my life (on vinyl, cassette and CD) since it came out in 1987. For me it's the best body of work Chris made during the 1980s. Yes, even more so than The Road To Hell. There are no weak moments, although it has to be said that September Blue never fails to leave me weak, emotionally... it's such a simple, poignant, beautiful song. An album that reminds me of a great time, it still gets regular plays at home and in the car. Highly recommended, especially to a Rea newcomer.

In my opinion, Chris got going properly with 1985's 'Shamrock Diaries'. From then on his music just got better. 'Dancing With Strangers', the last of his albums before his mainstream popularity, is definitely his best.
It starts brilliantly with 'Joys of Christmas' - an accurate view on the struggles of christmas. From this song the album sounds like a band playing together, rather than dubbing. It is clear now that 'I can't dance to that' is Rea's rant at his record company. 'Windy Town', 'Gonna Buy a Hat', 'Let's Dance', 'Loving You Again' all follow, and are all examples of Chris at his best. The songs in-between don't disappoint either - 'Curse of the Traveller' is a haunting tune, and 'Que Sera' is unsurprisingly nice and upbeat.
Having heard Chris's latest album, the 'bluesy' 'Stony Road', it is clear when listening to earlier albums, what his original intentions were - where blues form the main root of many of the songs ('Let's Dance', for example). As ever, his slight guitar is brilliant, as are his lyrics.
An excellent album all-round. A must for any Chris fan (if there are any who still haven't got it!) and anybody who likes his mainstream hits. This album won't disappoint.

Had this on vinyl, wanted to get it again to be able to play in the car. One of Chris' best albums with many danceable tracks, with let's dance, gonna buy a hat, I can't dance to that, Que sera and loving you again,being standouts. The opening track, joys of Christmas is about the miserable time someone is having with his family, and is out if character with the rest of the album.
Chris was obviously feeling more "Christmassy" the next year when he wrote "driving home for Christmas"

An excellent album with some truly standout tracks such as "Windy Town", "Curse of the Traveller", "Loving You Again" and of course "Let's Dance".

It is one of a string of classic Albums that he released in the 80's (including "On the Beach", "Road to Hell" and "Shamrock Diaries")

Some of the tracks from this album (Windy Town and Let's Dance) were re-recorded and it is the newer versions that appear on the (many) hits packages. These original versions are well worth checking out.

The "Bonus Tracks" that were issued on the CD but not the LP (12-14 I think) are pleasant, but are not essential.

Although not my favourite Chris Rea album (Shamrock Diaries takes that title), it is up there with his best work and well worth owning.

Album no 3 in Chris' 'imperial' phase, and the all-important one before The Road To Hell set the seal on the legend. A splendid album, with something for everyone. Of it's time, yes, but none the worse for that. 'Side One' is just about faultless, with each song a sign of styles to come, combining pop, rock & blues just so (I Can't Dance to that being a particular favourite). 'Side Two' kicks off with the always great Let's Dance (the slightly superior original version to my mind), and while not quite as strong as the first half, still holds it's own. The album may be a couple of tracks too long, but it's an artist in fine form, with the best yet to come . . .
