‘Stay On These Roads’ is a 1988 album by A-ha. It was their third offering and the last in which they assumed the guise of synth boy-band. It continues the template of pop-with-rock-diversions that was set by its predecessor, 1986’s ‘Scoundrel Days’. The title track on ‘Stay On These Roads’ is a glorious, uplifting ballad. It steals the show to a point but there are other treasures here – the 007 theme ‘The Living Daylights’ is a belting tune, while ‘There’s Never A Forever Thing’ shows A-ha’s ability to weave a haunting melody. ‘Touchy!’ and ‘You Are The One’ are shameless, sunny pop songs for those who like that kind of thing. The extra tracks appended to reissued CD’s are too often a snore. But not here – there are scores of intriguing curios. The pick is a demo of ‘This Alone Is Love’. The chorus’s ending line, “Oh baby, what can we do?”, always sounded like a songwriter’s lazy option, and that refrain is absent from this earlier version – in its place is a segment of the title track from ‘Scoundrel Days’. Whether a CD recorded with state-of-the-art digital technology in 1988 needed to be remastered is debatable. But these CD’s sound terrific and my expectation is that any fan of A-ha would want this in their collection.

I have been waiting for this to be given the Deluxe treatment since the first two albums were done in 2010.The album has been remastered and had the 12 inch versions of the singles added to the first disc,which is the the main reason for buying this edition as I have not been able to find them on any 80s collection,except for stay on these roads extended. The second disc has early mixes and alternate versions which,for a collector,are a bonus.

'Stay On These Roads' (1988) was produced by Alan Tarney, a successful producer in the 1980's, working with artists such as Cliff Richard, Barbara Dickson, Leo Sayer, David Cassidy (the 'Romance' album) and The Moody Blues ('Keys To The Kingdom' album).

This expanded edition has 'state of the art' remastered sound by Rhino/Warner Music, which brings a new depth & clarity to this excellent long-player. Five of the original album's ten tracks were hit singles, starting with the theme song for the James Bond movie 'The Living Daylights' in July 1987.

The latter song was re-worked for the album. The hit single/movie version only appears on this set in extended form, although the 7" version has appeared on compilations. It is said that the members of Aha did not get on well with the composer John Barry in the studio. John Barry himself disclosed that Aha had a 'bad attitude'.

On many albums, it is the singles which stand out. On 'Stay On These Roads' it is the album tracks which are most satisfying; songs such as 'This Alone Is Love' & 'Out Of Blue Comes Green' are both superb, with outstanding lead vocals. Morton Harket's voice has a greater range than most pop singers. 'There's Never A Forever Thing' & 'Hurry Home' are also impressive. The rhythm of 'Hurry Home' appears to simulate the rhythm of a train to match the 'freight train running' lyric.

The title track 'Stay On These Roads', a hit in March 1988, is the best of the other singles, with another great lead vocal. 'Touchy' (8/88) has never been a big favourite, but 3 more versions are included! 'You Are The One' (12/88) was a catchy enough hit single, but why does it appear 5 times on this set ?

Released in 1988, this was the last pop like album released by a-ha before they changed to their more serious acoustic style in "East of the sun, west of the moon" in 1990. This album has recieved some criticism but i feel this is unjust. I feel this is the most consistant of their first three albums. Songs such as "Theres never a forever thing", "out of a blue comes green", and "The blood that moves the body" are all excellent as well as the other songs on the album. A very good effort by an excellent band! Still releasing excellent material to this day!
