With sneering singer Holly Woods leading the charge, these Canadian rockers became big stars at home-where this 1981 LP, their second, went platinum.

A strong follow-up a year later to the 1980 "Lookin' for Trouble" first album by this Toronto, Canada based group. I loved this band when they came on the scene in the early 80's, and it's still great stuff.
Good range of songs, from the faster "Head On" to a little bluesy "Someone Will Play the Blues". My favorites are tracks 6, 7 & 8 - the lead singer Holly Woods really shows her vocal range, and the lyrics are really cool.

My Favorite Toronto album, and after finally hearing it again after a long while (since I sold off my LP's a number of years ago, I have finally replaced it on CD), it reminded me why right away why I liked it so much.

Female-fronted rock Jan. 4 2011
By G. Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the second album by Toronto, on a remastered CD. Toronto was a Canadian hard rock band (with some British and American members) that was active in the late 1970s and early 1980s. After their successful first album, the band brought in Rush producer Terry Brown, resulting in a smoother, more polished sound. Much of this album consists of melodic hard rock, with female vocals, rather like the early Pat Benatar releases. Two of these songs made it onto the Greatest Hits collection. However, the last three tracks, which were deeper cuts that did not receive much airplay, are actually the best. They demonstrate that while the band could come up with engaging hit singles, they were equally adept with more complex themes. The one caveat is that this CD runs only 38 minutes.

Not Bad Female Fronted Hard Rock June 30 2009
By Fred Rayworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'd always heard this was their best album, but I prefer Get It On Credit. However, this is still good music. They have a much harder edge than Heart, who they are always compared with. As a whole, the album is quite enjoyable. However, after several listens, there are no songs that really stand out to me. Still, I could listen to this over and over again.

As a good representation of this underrated band, I highly recommend it.

sort of a step back after their first album Nov. 9 2010
By Daniel W. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Pretty much unknown band Toronto is like Pat Benatar, Suzi Quatro, Ellen Foley, Heart, Quarterflash, Toni Basil, and Scandal all rapped up in one. But following their 1980 album Lookin For Trouble, which showed great promise for this female fronted band of the 80s, this follow-up seems to lack the melodic hooks of the first album and while catchy, it is not a particularly memorable album. Instead of capturing the more progressive rock sounds of the 80s, this album actually seems to be more late 70s in its vibe, with a kind of bar band sound. The only real standout for me that truly captures the essence of female artists of the 80s is the song Black Mail. But really, the best was yet to come from this 80s band...
