Product Description

Product Description

The "hi" point of a very successful career in rock! Hi Infidelity shot to #1 in late 1980 and stayed on the charts for 101 weeks as Don't Let Him Go and In Your Letter went Top 40, Take It on the Run hit #5 and their sing-along anthem Keep On Loving You hit #1. Those are some of the defining hits of early-'80s arena rock, and this is the album's 30th-anniversary reissue: a limited-edition, 180-gram vinyl LP, mastered from the original Epic tapes and housed in a gatefold sleeve full of lyrics and photos!

Amazon.ca

After nearly a decade struggling through the midwest rock wars, REO Speedwagon landed on the top of the charts with this incredibly mainstream collection of power ballads and economic hard rock. As its name suggests, the band's strongest attribute is its inconspicuous nature. You never see it coming. Kevin Cronin has a serviceable voice and Gary Richrath is a solid if unspectacular lead player. "Keep On Loving You" was the huge hit and it sets the pattern for the power ballads that would take many a hard rock band to the top of the charts throughout the '80s. Other notable tracks are "Don't Let Him Go" and "Follow My Heart" which offer up simple platitudes about the trials and tribulations of love with a radio-ready sound that connected well with their audience. --Rob O'Connor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This recording sounds too bright for my liking. There is very little depth I actually had to turn down the treble and turn up the bass to try and make the tone a little warmer. Both the CD and the original 1980 vinyl suffer from the same problem. The vinyl itself on this Friday Music copy is very good no surface noise to speak about.

It's a classic 80's album - actually it was released in 1980. Some people criticize it because they prefer the band's earlier, more rocking sound. Like it or not, it was this album that propelled them into superstars. I'm not a huge fan of the band either way but I do know this album had more radio played hits than can be found on any of their hits compilation CD's.

The first 6 songs on this album were radio played hits. "Don't Let Him Go', Take It On the Run" and "Keep On Loving You" are usually found on their hits CD's. "Tough Guys", "In Your Letter" and "Follow My Heart" are harder to find and It was good to hear them again. It's worth getting a copy of this album for these songs and to hear how the whole album fit together as originally intended by the band. The remaining 4 songs aren't hit worthy but they're not terrible either. Personally, I can't see why "Tough Guys" and "Follow My Heart" aren't as popular any more as the other hits because they sound similar enough. However, "In Your Letter" hasn't aged as well - it's very catchy but sounds like it's from the early 1960's (it was already "dated" sounding in 1981).

The reason for deducting stars...
The remastering is WAY TOO LOUD. Any dynamics have been squashed out of the music. The versions found on 1988's "The Hits" CD are quieter but more natural and have no added compression so you get the full dynamics. Both the 20th Anniversary and 30th anniversary editions have gotten progressively louder remastering. People are claiming they sound better, that they can hear things in the mix now that they couldn't before, etc. but really it's made a lot louder and everything is more up front.

...heard it from another that this album is great! I was a freshman in high school when this one was released. I'd never heard much from REO before, but it was impossible to ignore this album. Hi Infidelity was a "must have" for most people. It's THAT good. It's got the popular ballads, but there are also some great rockin' tunes like Tough Guys, Shakin' It Loose, and Someone Tonight.
I originally gave it 4 stars, but I'm switching it to 5. This album is pretty much flawless. There are no bad songs on here.

I am a big REO Speedwagon fan from their early rock roots to more pop songs... their ability to stay current in the 60's through to the 80's reveals their diversity of style. They had many great songs and ones that resonated with the public giving them a number of hits. They seem to reach a climax in the 1990's which is not really surprising.. they nonetheless had a good run, and with changes in the band composition it kept their musical style fresh every decade. I particularly love "Ridin' The Storm Out" which is not on this album, and "In Your Letter" and "Take It On The Run" which are on this album.

Yeah, you. You know you went to at least one REO concert in the '80s, assuming you were born by then. And as much as you may consider yourself an upstanding citizen who now listens to more legitimate talents such as Dave Matthews -- okay, I make little joke -- you and I both know that there's a place in your heart for this stuff. It's okay: I won't tell anyone.
Maybe you had to be there, but if you were, I'm betting that you'll know what I mean when I say that there's something that's just plain timeless and fun about this one. It takes itself so very seriously, but it's not *entirely* unjustified in doing so -- especially considering that these were fairly dark days for music, and folks like Styx were running around instigating much greater crimes against humanity than were on display here. _Hi Infidelity_ shows melody and exuberance and overproduction and fairly atrocious lyrics slammed together into one big piece of something that I persist in believing is actually fairly decent, all things considered. Your mileage may vary.

The sound quality has been boosted, that's for sure. "Keep on Loving You" and "Take it on the Run" finally broke these road warriors wide open, but it was a mixed blessing--the pop sound of the aforementioned mega-hits raised expectations for more pop hits and compromised the quality of their music. Critics have bashed this band for selling out, but these two songs stand tall among the pop music which was generated circa 1980.
"Don't Let Him Go" was a Top 40 hit and rocks pretty hard, as does the album cut "Tough Guys." But you'll need to look hard to find lyrics more shallow and sophomoric, especially on the latter. "In Your Letter" was also a hit and more of a sing-along, and the ballad "I Wish You Were There" is a tear-jerker. Other than the two huge hits, there really isn't much to recommend this one. If you're new to the band, you might want to pick up "The Hits," which contains everything from the power ballad era as well as high-end up-tempo work like "Roll With The Changes." There are also compliations out there which feature the band's seminal work, which include great tracks like "Riding The Storm Out," "Music Man," "Keep Pushin'" and "Golden Country." The early, live "You Get What You Play For," with its great "157 Riverside Avenue," shows the fire the band could generate in concert once upon a time.
