REVIEWS
Average points: 4.54 (Reviews: 26)
****
Melodiöser Rock aus Kanada. Gut, doch nicht Spitzenklasse. # 29 in den amerikanischen Charts Anfang 1982.
******
Knappe sechs, ihr zweitbestes Stück nach Turn Me Loose.
#2 in der US-Mainstream Chart

Sehr gut.
*****
unterstreicht einmal mehr,daß 1982 ein gutes Rockjahr war-nur in Deutschland scheint daß mal wieder niemand bemerkt zu haben

Reisst mich nicht vom Hocker, banaler Mainstream-Rock halt. Knappe 4
***
Ist nur durchschnittlich
*****
Jau, geradliniger Arena-Rock mit ordentlich Studio-Ballerei und den üblichen Gitarrenspäßen. Macht aber gute Laune!!!
******
neben "Turn me loose" der Hit schlechthin, ist der Opener des Albums "Get Lucky" [1981]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
hatte 1981 oder 82 das Vergnügen diese Band aus Kanada auf einem (meinem ersten!) Open-Air-Konzert in Würzburg (D) kennenzulernen
damals mit dabei u. a. Little River Band, Men at Work und (man glaubt es kaum) NENA mit 99 Luftballons!
***
typischer 80-er mainstream-rock...
****
Guter solider Rock.
******
Super Song!
****
Ganz in Ordnung. Dass der gar nicht in Deutschland chartete, wundert mich ein wenig.
*****
...sehr gut...
*****
Stark!
***
schwach..einfach nicht meine Band gewesen.
****
kommt nicht an "Turn Me Loose" ran.
****
ordentliche Rockscheibe aus anfangs der 80er – 4*...
*****
nummer 9.926 in de top 10.000 van radio mi amigo
goeie rock plaat
****
marschiert prima.
***
durchschnittlich
****
ganz nett
******
Mit Abstand der beste Song der Band, den ich bisher kenne.
*****
Good
*****
Richtig knackiger Gute-Laune-Song, den man eigentlich jeden Freitagabend hören sollte. Knapp 5*.
****
ein anständiger Rocktitel, dessen Text man sehr gut nachvollziehen kann, kommt nicht an "Turn me loose" ran, aber ist durchaus gut...!
