this album was my intro to Reo Speedwagon. at the time not many people up here in canada had heard of them . but thanks to late night FM radio we northerners were introduced to a pretty good band. the song that was played over and over again was ridin the storm out which is no surprise. this song remains one of REOs classics and just might rate as there all time fan favorite. but after that song the album kinda flattens out and becomes rather so-so. there are some good songs son of a poor man,no expression to name a couple but there is a bit of filler on this record. if you're interested in picking up some older REO stuff then pickup REO 2 first. it's a better all around album and it will give you a better picture of what REO was all about in the early to mid 70s. a really good bar band that made it to a bigger stage. if you want to hear the studio version of Ridin the storm out then sure by this album. i picked up the cd a couple of years ago and i still enjoy it but the occasional listener may think hmmm and forget about it. not a bad album but not a great one either. for dedicated REO fans only.

Right before recording the album vocalist Kevin Cornin left to take a stab at a solo career, so vocalist Mike Murphy was brought in to record the vocals for the album.Mike Murphy isn't a bad vocalist,but most of the material that he is singing is not very well written. Most of the songs are weak. The only reason to check this album out is for the studio version of Ridin the Storm Out. Casual fans stay away from this one!

This first album from REO is simple, honest and satisfying. Nothing fancy or very frilly here. Typical early 1970's classic rock style with some very soulful and fun tunes. Vocals aren't mixed quite high enough in the recording for my taste, but that detracts nothing from the quality of the songs. Try before you buy (always), but if you dig good old roots rock, you won't be dissappointed.

Recommended to anyone who likes good classic rock tunes. Not the REO Speedwagon you might be expecting but it is an excellent album.

The Mike Murphy period wasn't really ALL that bad... Sept. 12 2007
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Call me crazy, but I actually quite LIKE the "different" REO with this lead singer-but that's just me. Sure, Kevin was the more commercial singer, but his voice gets on my nerves sometimes. My favorite album from the Mike Murphy period is "Lost In A Dream"-IMO.

Ridin' the Storm Out Feb. 21 2000
By Jeff Crask - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a GREAT album. Nothing but 110% effort on every song. Mike Murphy sang on this one and his vocals are soulful and very unique. If you are a baby boomer this will take you back to leaving home (Movin') , trying to find love (Oh Woman), losing love (Start a New Life) and trying to make something of yourself (oh sure these guys were going to California to be rock stars but you know what I mean)(Find My Fortune). No long jams on this like the live album, but Gary's guitar playing is excellent.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i have been an reo fan since 81. true they have had their sappy ballad albums, but this one kicks you in the butt and doesn't stop. good singing and music and lyrics. must buy for the die hards.

Great Record Oct. 3 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
RIDIN' THE STORM OUT is a great REO Speedwagon album. Even though Kevin Cronin is gone, Mike Murphy has a unique voice that is well suited to these hard-rockin' numbers. The title song could be about any troublesome situation, and "Open Up" is a great steal from CSNY's "Everybody I Love You." "Find My Fortune" belongs on any field-day soundtrack, as does the aforementioned title track, but the whole album is great. A must for any serious rock fan.

Best REO song ever Jan. 18 2007
By music man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first REO song I ever heard was the studio version of Riding The Storm Out. I didn't know he wasn't the original vocalist for the band. When I finally heard Kevin I was disappointed. I think Mike has a good rock voice, while Kevin is wimpy sounding. Every time I hear this song on the radio now, they always play the live version. I think that is a mistake.
