"Ah! Leah!" is the song that got my attention. At a time when REO speedwagon seemed to dominate the airwaves, this HUGE rockin' power ballad stood out as something unique.
"I Can't Hear You," "Joking," and "Shock Treatment" are lyrically brilliant- (although at times very eighties).
"Back on the Streets," is a Springsteen-esque ballad that is as good as or better than any Springsteen epic.
"Agnes," is a great "story" that builds as it goes- unforgettable.
"You're Only Dreaming," "She's So Wild (amazing rocker)," and "Daddy Don't Live Here Anymore" revisits some ot the quirkiness and silliness of trackes 2,3, and 4.
"Too Young to Love," just hurts when you listen to it.
Iris has tapped into the very ache of love and desire on a lot of this album and it leaves you with an unforgettable experience. Kick back and listen to all of this at once. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars God Bless Razor & Tie For Re-Releasing This Aug. 23 1998
Format:Audio CD
I was just a college freshman from Iowa--what did I know about music? At the time (1980), I thought that Foghat, REO Speedwagon and the Scorpions RULED! Luckily, I met a guy from a truly small town in Iowa who had quite the extensive knowledge of music, and I started down the road that led me to believe that the three greatest bands in rock history are Sonic Youth, The Clash and Husker Du. Of course, journeys of a thousand miles begin with a single step, and those steps started with Roxy Music, Ultravox, and this album. Although Donnie Iris had a top 10 hit in the '70's with "The Rapper," this album is pure powerpop ear candy. From the opening "Oh Leah" (itself a top 30 hit) through odd little tunes such as "I Can't Hear You" (with the great feminist lyric "Stop all your bitchin'/Back in the kitchen"), "Joking" (check out the lyrics to that), "Shock Treatment" and "You're Only Dreaming," it's a great tuneful album. I was in San Francisco last year, and found this re-issue, and it truly made my day--one of the hardest of my vinyl collection to find on CD. Check it out--you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Debutfrom Ex-Jaggerz Vocalist! March 20 2002
Format:Audio CD
Originally with the 70's pop group The Jaggerz who scored big with "The Rapper" in the early 70's, Donnie Iris releases his debut l.p. with a definate new wave sound to it. The hit "Ah Leah" was played on radio stations all over the U.S. in 1980 and it still sounds great today. Iris has a knack at writing catchy tunes such as the above mentioned tunes. Songs such as "Back On The Street" and "Can't You Hear Me" are pop/new wave sounding songs that were released at just the right time when New Wave was getting popular. This is a great cd for those who enjoy the likes of The Producers, The Records, The Jags or The Romantics.

I have listened to this album repeatedly over the years and have always loved it. I know this is his best work and it pains me that "King Cool" never came close to it's artistry. I have heard that "Poletown" is not a particularly good album, but have been afraid to purchase it due to my burned feelings with "King Cool". Quintessential 1980's power rock! The guy and his band have real power guitar rifts that drive hard and will not let up. Relentless. The lyrics are autobiographical and personal and relay quite a story. The price is good - Try it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donnie gets busy! June 24 2000
Format:Audio CD
From "Ah! Leah!" to "Too Young To Love", Donnie Iris rocks with this CD. "Ah! Leah!" is an 80's classic, and "Agnes" will have you up and dancing even if you don't LIKE to dance. A true "'Burgh" thing like Iron City beer or a cheesesteak at Primanti's at 2:00AM, a Donnie Iris live concert is a MUST if you ever visit our great city when he's playing. Now listen up yunz guys---buy this CD, grab an "Arn", and get ready to rock with King Cool!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Pittsburgh Rock April 24 1999
Format:Audio CD
When you think of rock in Pittsburgh, you think of Donnie Iris. This is music to dance to, music to sing to, but, more importantly, music to have fun to. Donnie puts on a great live show, and, knowing him personally, I can defintely say that he's a great guy all around. If you ever visit Pittsburgh and have the chance to see Donnie perform live at Nick's Fat City or any other club in the area---GO! It'll be the most fun you've had in a while. Enuff said---now buy this CD!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Pittsburgh rock and roll March 8 1999
Format:Audio CD
Most people don't know it, but this album signaled the second coming of Donnie Iris, whose 1965 band The Jaggerz took "The Rapper" to #2 on Billboard's Hot 100. Along with bands like the Houserockers and the Clarks, Donnie and the Cruisers define Pittsburgh Rock and Roll. If you come into the Steel City and leave without seeing Donnie Iris live, you haven't experienced Pittsburgh.

5.0 out of 5 stars RARE GEM! Sept. 8 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one terrific album! Donnie Iris (from my hometown, Pittsburgh), doesn't get as much credit as he should. This is one of my few albums that I listen to a LOT...every song is excellent. The coolest part of the album is the continuing story of Agnes that begins on one song "Back On The Streets" and concludes with "Agnes". A must have for pop fans!

This album has Donnie's hit Ah! Leah! But for true Donnie fans, I Can't Hear You and Shock Treatment are must haves. Candy Quiles, Cleveland, OH
