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 ?Read more ›

a blend of styles with a stand out for me being: an even slower version of this 'alone is love' which melds with parts of 'scoundrel days' in what is probably the one-song-genesis... Read morePublished 6 months ago by david harding

I like the title track but the rest of the album is hit and miss. I personally would avoid and get their other albums.Published 6 months ago by Paul O'Doherty
