Two strong and classy albums from mid-late 80s Brit AORsters FM, the one band on the scene other than Magnum who had anything vaguely approaching a hit single. Fronted by the charismatic Overland brothers, their sound was the closest a UK band came to the sounds of Journey, Survivor, Night Ranger etc- although their own influences included everything from Split Enz through Zeppelin to blues and soul and they were more Metal than Cutting Crew or Mister Mister had ever been. Of the two albums, Tough It Out was the masterpiece- featuring 'Bad Luck', 'Everytime I Think Of You' and a host of other songs with (unfortunately) similar titles to other people's. Sadly, despite mucho acclaim in the rock press, both these albums tanked, and FM never reaped the rewards they deserved. Nevertheless, these are still two great albums. Digitally remastered, slip-cased with new notes. BGO. 2005.

"steve overland will always be the "voice". This 80`s /90`s double album is a must for all FM fans. Apart from some dodgy guitar work on Indiscreet you can`t go wrong. There`s some great tracks on Tough it out though."

"FM (UK) is my favorite AOR/melodic rock band. Their first two albums, "Indiscreet" and "Tough it Out," are the band at its best. It's a shame they aren't played on the classic rock stations, since they have a lot of talent."
