Mr Mister were one of many soft rock AOR bands that flooded the American playing fields in the early to mid 1980s. Their synthesizer driven guitar heavy pop songs sound pretty dated more than 25 years later, but I have to say that as a fan of the 80s music scene you have to appreciate this collection of tunes as top quality drive time ballards that I personally never get bored of listening to. 'Welcome To the Real World' is the band's second studio album that was released in 1985. The album topped the album charts in the states and grossed two number one singles.
Richard Page's remarkable voice help make tunes like 'Broken Wings' and 'Kyrie' (their two number one hits) typical radio favourites that make you want to crank up your radio a little bit. The feel of the album makes you ponder over an era of the music industry that is sadly no longer with us. Each song on the album stands up on it's own merits so you can listen through the whole set without skipping tracks. A nice collection of AOR gems.

Every now and then you get an album that stands the test of time. The indication of how good it can be is that every track is superb.
This album is one of those. Yes its 80's dated but every track has melody each songwriter looks for. Richard Page still have a fantastic vocal. Buy it and play it over and over and over again.......

Absolute All American Joyousness.
Richard Page has got the most fabulous voice, and as dated and as Brat Pack Soundtrack as this may sound now, it is still an utterly brilliant, melodic powerhouse of an album, and still perfect to go running to.
I love this album especially the opening of 'Is it Love' and althought the obvious hits are on here, personally I am and was always more in love with the not so recognised stuff, I love 'Uniform of Youth' and 'Tangent Tears'.
If anyone ever saw them on our British 'Saturday Live' back in '86, they were simply amazing, Page sang 'Broken Wings' live and I will never forget it, he was like an angel. I even have it on video.
Enjoy.

Every song on this album is excellent and in keeping with the other tracks. I don't think it matters what order you listen to them (I happen to have a different order of tracks- think its the American version I have) Every song could have been a hit so its easy to see why this album was so sucessful in the 80s.

Its very well done in a very American 80s pop/rock way. The lyics also seem to be heartfelt and interesting and Richard Page matches that with a great range.

Black/White

The opening song draws you in immediately with the powerfull synths and drums and lets you know whats in store. Everything about this song is punchy!

The Uniform of Youth

This one has great drums and succeeds in being defiant.

Don't Slow Down

This is arranged so well and pashionately sung

Run To Her

This has a dream like feel to it and a nice contrast to the song before. This love song could have been a hit.

Into My Own Hands

Driving, very spirited and about taking control of your own life

Is It Love

This song is also very driving and desperately sung which suits the lyics to the core, asking the girl if she feels the sme way.

Kyrie

No, not 'carry a laser' as it turns out! A great rock song.

Broken Wings

It is easy to see why Broken Wings was such a hit. It conveys a sense of freedom and the will to mend a broken relationship. It is also very well arranged with just the right amount of synth.

Tangent Tears

This has a softer sound to it, a nice pop song about unrequited love.

Welcome To The Real World

The titled track builds into a dramtic chorus, welcoming one that has just been born to the 'real world'. Good ending too.

Sorry, but there is not that much that's bad about this album so get it if you want it.

Obviously music does not stand still but 31 years on it still stands up with other records from its time and outshines the majority of todays mass produced purile dribble turned out by todays bands barring a very few exceptions

This is the Mr Mister album with all the great hits. To be honest every song on it is a classic, Uniform of Youth is a great song. Broken Wings being a big hit of theirs. Kyrie also received massive success. Is it Love is a powerhouse of a track.

I originally brought this on vinyl and I needed it on CD so I could listen in my car.

Buy it whilst you can :).

A great album i remember when it first came out, and we all heard Broken Wings and to this day it's still a classic album, and with extras too,
saw them when they came out to Australia they were amazing live, this might surprise the fans of Mr Mister there is an extended version of Broken
Wings which runs on 9:13 amazing

Memories of the 80's... hmmmmm
I had it on vinyl...no I've got it on CD... and when it comes out on some other format, I will get it again. The cream of 80's music and a nice break from the New Romantics (not that there is anything wrong with New Romantic music)
