3.0 out of 5 stars A BOY THAT ROCKS! Oct. 29 2002
Format:Audio CD
What makes truly great a songwriter? in my opinon it is the skill to write songs that appeal to people with a different background and with different atttudes, songs people can relate to...
Well, Corey's style is definitely a far cry from Diane Warren's (another of my favourites): there are no rhymes here, or seldomly so.
But the storytelling is so powerful one can't break away from its spell.
It was 1985 and i was coming to terms with my being homosexual, not an easy step for a 14 years old kid, and then...BANG! i hear on the radio this song titled NEVER SURRENDER...the lyrics, the music, the harmony...i loved EVERYTHING about it.
Then i come to find out it is by Corey and there's a full album set to be released.
Useless to say that's the song that turned me into a faithful fan.
The album is so much better than his first release.
The songs are all equally powerful and appealing.
Most of them are rock-influenced with a heavy use of synths and fairlights machines, and the result will blow you away.
As well as NEVER SURRENDER, the other BIG ballad to me on the CD is EURASIAN EYES, pure poetry....
If you search for rock tracks, then BOY IN THE BOX and SILENT TALKING are your best bets, supported by wild-driven vocals of Corey.
My favourite non-single track off the CD is the deliciously bouncy, pop tune WAITING FOR YOU, and if you are a hopeless romantic, well, just skip to EVERYTHING IN MY HEART and let yourself be engulfed in a love declaration in music.
The guy showed how to grow more mature in the space of a couple of years, give him credit and buy this CD...you will like it....

5.0 out of 5 stars A Synth Lover's Paradise! July 13 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Boy In The Box", Corey Hart's sophomoric effort, is a step up from his previous release "First Offense". It is on this album where Corey delves deeper into his introspective songwriting capabiities, with many of the lyrics being more biting and insightful than on Corey's previous effort. This insight is well-scoped out in such tracks as "Silent Talking" and "Water From The Moon". Two of the songs on "Box" feature a Latin flair - those being the album's title track and "Sunny Place, Shady People". A very tender ballad is featured in "Eurasian Eyes", with wonderful lyrical and musical content, which is brilliantly played to the hilt. The star ballads on "Box" belong to both of the album's singles "Never Surrender", a song about searching for lost love and having the courage to make your own choices in the face of adversity, and "Everything In My Heart", a powerful soul-grabbing number. "Komrade Kiev" deals with the cut-throat pressures of the Cold War in a serious manner, while "Waiting For You" is absolutely fun. With so many good songs to pick and choose from, "Boy In The Box" is one CD you'll definitely want to have in your collection. It is only available as an import title, as are a majority of Corey's CD's. Get it, before it's boxed up for good!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Ever Corey Hart Album March 29 2000
Format:Audio CD
Boy In The Box is one of the most fantastic and enjoyable popalbums ever made.It is a perfect blend of guitar meeting synthesiserswith fantastic results. The title track is a fantastic pop song about screen legend James Dean that has a dark and powerful edge to it. After this first slice of pop bliss comes another in a similar vein.Corey screams out the orders to "shoot KOMRADE KIEV" on this track about the stupidity of the cold war. The synths,drums and guitar go wild on this track that should have been a single.Other tracks are skillfully written with brilliant lyrics and a musical mind trip that takes you on a journey. This album is a must for any pop music loving 80s fan or for someone new to Coreys music! END

4.0 out of 5 stars A very strong album from fist song to the last cut Sept. 10 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The album starts off with "Boy in the Box"' a tribute to James Dean. Then it moves to the dissonant "Komrade Kiev" a hauntingly prophetic plea for an end to the cold war.
"Never Surrender" was the mega-hit from this album and the song "Everything in my Heart" also received significant airplay.
The rest of the album is strong, both in style and in content. This is one album that should be in everybody's collection.
