This album is full to bursting with great songs. Autograph were one of the best Metal acts of the 80`s. Anyone who`s a fan of commercial, singable metal will love this lot !!

After the success of there debut "Sign In Please" [ A must Buy ! ] The bands follow up called "That`s The Stuff" effectivly floped So the presure was on. They took there time in writing & recording this & the The Result is simply Brilliant !!

From the opening bars of the title track "Loud & Clear" you no this is going to be one of those albums ! Stand out tracks for me are "Loud & Clear" "She Never Looked That Good For Me" "Dance All Night" "She`s A Tease""Just Got Back From Heaven" "More Than A Million Times" "When The Sun Goes Down" practicully every track on this album is a killer. Sadly this was the last album these guys did. Due to record company incompitence the band never got the promotion there music deserved. The version of this i`ve got is Remastered & with a great insert booklet by Paul Suter [ one time Kerrang writer] explaining what happend to the band. Absolutley great stuff !!

If you like your Metal singable with songs you`ll be singing for weeks on end then this & there Debut "Sign In Please" are absolutley must haves!! Go Buy !!

This is Autograph third and last album of the mighty '80s, when music was loud and hair long. excellent AOR produced by Sir Andy Johns, guitar lovers will appreciate Steve Lynch brilliant guitar playing. This is the original RCA released from april 1987, "loud and clear" is now available in remastered and expanded reissue from the rock candy label.

this is the remastered and expanded reissue from the rock candy label, very informative 16-page colour booklet. excellent musicianship, great AOR songs, Autograph was the ultimate AOR PARTY band of the late eighties. unfortunately no extra-tracks but a great remastered reissue, and the opportunity to hear a good album that was out of print for a long time on its original RCA 1987 CD issue!

5.0 out of 5 stars 4-star album, 5-star reissue 28 Sept. 2010
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Originally release in 1987, Loud and Clear was the third album from Los Angeles-based rockers Autograph. The band released a string of impressive melodic rock albums in the mid `80s, but for some reason never seemed to fit into the hair metal scene that came to dominate L.A. in the second half of the decade.

Loud and Clear is very similar to Autograph's previous albums (1984's Sign In Please and 1985's That's The Stuff). It's an upbeat, feel-good party rock album with odes to hot girls, loud parties, and rocking all nite. Catchy hooks, great melodies and just enough keyboards are all abundant on Loud & Clear, and Steve Plunkett does another knockout job on vocals. There really isn't a "Turn Up the Radio" style hit on this album, but "Dance All Night" and "Just Got Back From Heaven" should have been solid radio hits at the time, and "More Than a Million Times" should have been huge. It's a brilliant, "soundtrack ready" melodic rocker.

As good as it is, Loud and Clear was Autograph's least successful `80s album, and ended up being their last work as a band. Plunkett would launch a new version of Autograph with 2003's Buzz, but it wasn't quite the same. If you're a fan of the mid `80s melodic rock sound, Loud & Clear is a "can't miss" album from one of the era's more unfairly overlooked bands. Check it out, especially now that it has been remastered.

Edition Notes: Loud and Clear was reissued by UK label Rock Candy in 2006. For this reissue, Rock Candy included detailed liner notes and gave the album a brilliant digital remastering. The improved sound quality is so impressive I'm bumping my rating for this album up to 5-stars. You've never heard the album until you've heard this reissue.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most overlooked great albums 30 Dec. 2007
By M. Braman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Everyone has one of those albums that nearly everyone else passed over at the record store that is really phenomenal.

This autograph album is probably the best autograph album, as it captures the band at its peak abilities. The production is awesome, the songs are well developed, the sound captures the whole 80s hair-band era prior to the implosion that was Dr. Feelgood and New Jersey (which ruined the whole era).

Every track is solid, with many almost perfect in their execution. If you ever own one autograph album this should be the one. No major hits were released to match "Turn up the Radio", but every song would be very radio friendly.

Way underated and overlooked. Buy it, listen to it a few times, you'll hear what I mean.
4.0 out of 5 stars A strong album, by great band! 12 May 2014

Nothing fancy to say here, but enjoy the album, if the production wasn't as strong as Sign In Please.
It's funny, I only had Sign In Please, after all these years, until earlier this year when I picked this up ... - I thought this was the 2nd album ... - and then realized that That's The Stuff was the 2nd, so I went and tracked that one down too!

Love the songs, good catchy 80's rockers, no complaints ... Loved the 1st album, but in the UK, I lost track of their progress after that for some reason?
Recommend this to fans of the band as the songs are still strong, it just lacks a little - IMO - in production.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clearly one of the finest bands of its genre 5 Dec. 2012
By Sal Nudo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
On their third and final album with the original five members, Autograph don't stray from the tried-and-true formula that made them relatively successful. Sure, "Loud and Clear" might sound a bit more musically sophisticated in parts, a touch harder-rocking on some songs, and even a bit darker in spots, such as on "Everytime I Dream," which reminds me of what Cinderella was doing on "Night Songs." But overall, if you dug Autograph's first two 10-song records, you'll surely love this tight and fun one as well. The bombastic sing-along energy, party-boy attitude, and killer guitar and synth hooks are all familiar elements that Autograph churned out for the true final hurrah. People can scoff at these songs now if they want to, but what's perplexing is why Autograph wasn't huge by 1987, during an era when people normally went crazy for unabashed and non-ironic types of offerings like "She Never Looked that Good for Me," "Just Got Back from Heaven," and "Dance All Night." These are loud and proud -- not to mention hugely melodic -- tunes that should have been played all over late-1980s radio airwaves but weren't.

Autograph's keyboardist, Steven Isham, added an element of mysticism, further radio-ready slickness, and even more melodicism to Autograph's sheeny body of work. His echoed keyboard portion within "Just Got Back from Heaven" adds an enticing and serious tone to a song that should have been a hit, while the synth on the good tune "More than a Million Times" really anchors the song and adds depth.

When Autograph shut things down with the album's best and last tune, the feel-good ditty "When the Sun Goes Down," you can't help but feel like the band sadly missed out on the real 1980s party. With the most commercially successful moments of '80s "hair metal" just around the corner, Autograph leave us with a tune that should have been part of MTV's parade of heralded metal songs and artists ... but it wasn't to be. It would have been interesting to see the group's evolution, had Autograph been allowed a few more records. Though some maturation was surely in order, it's likely the good times would have kept rolling in some form or other.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Love Autograph...but this was not their shining moment 12 April 2007
By C. Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
when it comes to 80s metal,I'm not just a casual fan,I'm a fanatic...if it's got hair and rocks I'm gonna love it

Autograph summed up everything I loved about hair metal,right up there with Poison,Tuff,Pretty Boy Floyd,Enuff Z Nuff and of course Bon Jovi...these are bands that could play their instruments but also write darn good songs

the debut release of Autograph 'Sign In Please' was perfection...the follow up 'That's The Stuff' didn't quite live up to it but I didn't lose faith and I bought 'Loud And Clear'

I will not say that it's awful cause it's not...there are some amazing songs....like 'Loud And Clear' 'Dance All Night' 'She Never Looked That Good For Me' 'She's A Tease' and 'Just Got Back From HEaven' are all amazing songs...worthy of including in the debut...but the rest of the album feels a little off balance,the production is great,the performances are great too,it's just the majority of the songs are not quite as catchy as they could have been,and it's a shame,the classic 80s sound is here in full glory....if you love Def Leppard,or Night Ranger, or even Bon Jovi or Whitesnake, I truly think you would love this band

and if you are already a fan and wondering if you should buy this CD,I would definitely say YES

there are more then enough great songs to make it worth owning

the upside - She's A Tease is classic,so is 'She Never Looked That Good For Me' it has all you could ask for from a great 80s rock band,great vocals,great solos,great production and lots of hair!

the downside - a lot of the songs are not quite as catchy as their debut or the 'Missing Pieces' collection...some seem to drag a bit but luckily the great songs are spaced evenly throughout

the bottom line - a very worth addition to any true 80s rock fan...don't hesitate to buy this,especially at this price...bands just don't sound like this anymore so let's support the ones who still do and have that awesome 80s sound...donutman says so!!!
