Together with Night Moves, Stranger In Town and Nine Tonight, this is one of the great Bob Seger albums, made during his most productive and best period. Opens with a godd rocker "The Horizontal Bop" - no idea what that could infer! You'll Acomp'ny Me is a lovely melodic softer track followed by the hard edged "Her Strut". No Man's Land is my personal fave on this album, a simple 3 chord tune, which is easy to play but just sounds great - many of the best songs are the easiest (Everybody Hurts - REM springs to mind too). Long Twin Silver Line, another raunchier rocker. Against The Wind goes back to the simpler melodic style of No Man's Land. Good For Me is the ballad. It's ok but it's not quite up to others that Bob has done. Betty Lou's Gettin' Out Tonight is the fast Rock n Roll track on here, great song. Fire Lake makes a third simple melodic tune, but again is a very good song. The album closes with Shinin' Brightly, ironically probably the least favourite of mine, nothing really wrong with it, but maybe the track order was wrong and switching it's position with Betty Lou would have made more sense to me. Highly recommended album.

mr seger and co at their best this was the 1st album ever given too me.my grandparents ran a hotel when i was a lad and this LP was found after one busy saturday night sometime in 1980 ,left over or forgotten by one of the DJ's who entertained the crowd,my grandparents knowing i loved many pop music band from an early age gave this to me,and after 1st listen i was hooked,the years went by and the LP GOT SCRATCHED AND WORN OUT.eventually as i grew outta this phase and into the next group that would distract my attention,i found my self many years later rediscovering my childhood musical tastes and many a visit to record fairs and car boot sales,i have been looking for this on vinyl ever since.but never finding a unscratched copy.it was last week that i found on this site a U.S IMPORT version on CD ,USED CONDITION AND AT A RUDDY GOOD PRICE I THOUGHT I HAVE THIS-AND GLAD I DID...MEMORY LANE REVISITED!!!

Against the Wind is the eleventh studio album by American rock singer Bob Seger and his third with The Silver Bullet Band. It was released in 1980

Sublime
Bought Stranger in Town and Hollywood Nights on vinyl in the early 80s and recently bought the CDs. Against the Wind completes a perfect trio.
