5.0 out of 5 stars Neat little package.. Dec 2 2006
Format:Audio CD
of mid 80's guitar rock, with a lead singer kinda reminisent of early Sting with the Police (think Zenyatta Mondatta era). Although the guy kinda plays around with the same chords on a couple of the tunes, this album really doesn't have a bad song on it. First tune I heard of theirs was "All the love in the world" which just kinda grabbed me , as the guitars just sounded so damn good and upfront in their music. I can still put this on 20 years later and enjoy it. If you a guitar player who grew up in that era, and if you can play at all, you can hit the main solo parts and progressions. Just plain good, and sounds great turned up.

I had to buy this cassette three times, as someone relieved me of the first two, was very popular with teens who didn't like new wave or metal and it made me follow the band for at least 3 more records.

Those were the days. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars correction, please Jan. 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The legendary producer/musician/writer William Wittman produced the Outfield, who also produced an album for The Fixx in the same era, played bass and produced the alternative band Too Much Joy (now morphed into The Its), co-produced & co-wrote the Indie hit "Shine" with Cyndi Lauper in 2003 -- and engineered and played bass on her current work, "At Last." Hope that clears up the confusion....and gives credit where it's due.

The Brits had their shot at 80's rock in the form of The Outfield, consisting of guitarist John Spinks, lead vocalist and bassist Tony Lewis, and drummer Alan Jackman. And with producer Rick Chertoff at the helm, he worked similar magic that he did on Cyndi Lauper's landmark She's So Unusual and The Hooters' Nervous Night.
The first single, "Say It Isn't So", demonstrates the sound, John Spinks's guitar, which at times sounds like the Edge's, harmony vocals by Lewis and Spinks, and a catchy rhythm guitar that occasionally reminds me of the Police. It's a wonder why this song didn't make it on the charts. The hooks are worthwhile and that feeling of being dazed by some kind of girl works: "I'm staring into a space that was filled by your face" and "I'm walking in the midnight sun once again"
Then comes "Your Love", a well-deserved Top Ten hit, which contains that memorable first line: "Josie's on a vacation far away..." Keeping an illicit affair going makes for the synonymous use of "lose" and "use", as in "I don't wanna lose your love tonight." The video for this song incorporated the painting of the album cover art.
"I Don't Need Her" starts with that churning Edge-like guitar before telling of conflicting love. "I'm so glad I don't need her" he says, but then, it comes down to "But in the end I just can't leave her/Can't leave her tonight."
The last single, "Everytime You Cry", is a swaying hold-those-lighter ballads, and one of my favourites on this album. A bittersweet ballad: "When you say goodbye, I die just a little bit-cry just a little bit more."
"61 Seconds" seems to be on one hand the numbing sensation of being the clockwork 9 to 5 man and how the scheduled and timely office world is defined by numbers, in this case the hands on a clock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, but needs remastering Sept. 2 2006
By Andrew Furst - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyable album, a few weak tracks but otherwise this sounds like an album The Police might have made and been quite proud of. But I'm knocking off one star (was tempted to knock off two stars) because the sound quality should be much better. I had this on vinyl years ago, and that was so much better sounding than this. The CD here almost sounds like it was recorded from an LP to cassette, and transferred from that cassette to CD. Someone needs to go back to the original tapes and create a remastered CD worthy of this music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brit-pop trio's helpful contribution to 80's music Oct. 2 2003
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com

"I Don't Need Her" starts with that churning Edge-like guitar before telling of conflicting love. "I'm so glad I don't need her" he says, but then, it comes down to "But in the end I just can't leave her/Can't leave her tonight."
The last single, "Everytime You Cry", is a swaying hold-those-lighter ballads, and one of my favourites on this album. A bittersweet ballad: "When you say goodbye, I die just a little bit-cry just a little bit more."
"61 Seconds" seems to be on one hand the numbing sensation of being the clockwork 9 to 5 man and how the scheduled and timely office world is defined by numbers, in this case the hands on a clock. "There's a clock on the wall/a mirror reflecting it all/just an imageless photograph/There's a space in a frame/Can you imagine a man with no name" 61 seconds is "all it takes for the nine-to-five man to be more than one minute late"
The catchy "Mystery Man" could've been another single, especially with that "In the middle of it all-<insert rest of lyrics here>" and repeat. This is an action spy song describing a secret agent on missions in various places and the protagonist is his contact.
However, "All The Love" became the third single, making the Top Twenty, and it's one of those "I should've..." songs of a dying relationship. The full title was "All The Love In The World" and when those words on the first night become the same words on that last day, they sound hollow.
The chorus rhythm of "Talk To Me" has shades of "All I Have To Do Is Dream" by the Everlys "Taking My Chances" is a slower number that veers towards filler. "Nervous Alibi" is a languid "Where were you out last night?" interrogations to a girl. He tells her "Don't you know I hate those clothes you wear/For I've seen men undress you/And with their eyes caress you/Another nervous alibi."
Yet another memorable group contributing to that unmistakable 80's sound on a debut album that succeeds despite the few filler tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars THEE best album of the 80's! April 5 2003
By CJ Can - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Let's put it this way, if you're tired of today's music (admit it, you are!), and you're aching for something from the past that you may have missed - this is the disc for you! It's the best COMPLETE album of the 80's. We all know "Your Love" (or you should anyway - "Josies on a vacation far away, come around and talk it over..."), but there are songs on this disc like "61 Seconds" and "Say It Isn't So" that are just phenomenal. I put this CD in my top three of all time (U2's "Joshua Tree" & Tom Petty's "Damn the Torpedos" are my other two). I don't know what else to say other than this band is one of the most underrated bands of the 80's and sadly, overlooked in the 90's. They are a very good, uplifting, rock band that needs to be given a new record deal so their new music can reach the masses.

5.0 out of 5 stars The One That Started It All! Jan. 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a fourteen year-old in 1986 when this album was released, I asked my uncle to buy me this cassette for the song "All the Love". It ended up being a huge bargain for my uncle, because he bought the tape for only one song, and I ended up loving all ten! I listened to the tape so much that I'm surprised it still plays. All the same, I bought it on CD and retired the cassette. I hate to use the same old cliches, but the music found here really is catchy and infectious, and once you hear it, it hooks you. After the last track, the mesmerising "Nervous Alibi", you reach for the "Play" button to start the whole CD over again. The '80s anthem "Your Love" was by far the biggest song from the CD, but to think that the entire CD is made or broken by this song is a mistake. But my rantings can only say so much. Do yourself a big favor and get this disc. Once you do, you'll want to hear the rest of them!
