Title: STAY ON THESE ROADS
Street Release Date: 01/30/2007
"This is the only effort by the Scandinavian crew that I came away from with a bad taste in my mouth. The album has the feel of a collection of earlier songs that were passed up for publication. This is the type of half hearted effort that comes about when a group or artist feels pressured to release a new album. The only bright spots are "Hurry Home" and "Stay On These Roads". Not enough . Bring on the raspberry jam guys."

"a-ha's third album, and their last synth-pop venture, is a complete success! Their maturing sound, which becomes evident on their next album, peeks through a bit here and delivers wonderfully. Too bad a lot of people missed out on it. Highly recommended!!!"
AAAA- ha , we shall meet agaaain.....

"I built this review title from the title song where it says: " stay on these roads, we shall meet , I know..." This is the first entire A-ha album (1988)I listened in my life. I bought its LP only for 86 american dollar cents nearly (calculated from the brazilian money) this week. Luckily, this record was well preserved. It was far from being a waste of time: Despite the weaker tracks,this one has very few mistakes, enough to be considered masterpiece. Looking at the sleeve,we can see that this norwegian trio had the appearance of a " boy band" like Backstreet Boys or New Kids on the Block. But they don't all that chorographies or playbacks as typical group of this genre. A-ha proved it: this cd has lots of keyboards (this habit makes me remember Roxette), soft and enjoyable vocals in addition , many beautiful melodies ( on tracks 2, 1 ,6 ,7 and 8).
It may attract you: tracks 1, 3 and 9 were radio friendly. I used to listen them when I was a child without knowing what A-ha was. In Hurry Home,the topic is a woman that doesn't earn money sufficiently coming back home after a hard day's work. This track is good too. Touchy! (the only song with a guitar solo that made me remember David Murray's style, from Iron Maiden)and You are the one are typical love themes talking about attraction, fascination.
Tracks 6 and 7 (some vocals made me remind Ice House, who sing a piece called No promises, an 80's hit)are pretty good for relaxing. I liked track 7 so much that I repeated it several times (very sweet and elegant).
The songs that have more "filler" attributes are You'll end up crying and This alone is love ( however,I like the chorus. The band used the musical note rise in the end, just like Stratovarius in "The kiss of judas" ,the Bee Gees in "You win again", Garbage in "Run baby run" etc.)
Yeah, like I said in the title: A-ha ,we shall meet again in other album. You convinced me.
Fell in love with this in high school and still enraptured.

"Upon the release of "Take On Me", most people would come to think of A-ha as the One-Hit-Wonders of 1985. But the truth of the matter is that the albums which followed Hunting High and Low were the ones which really demonstrated the talent of this magnificent trio. With the issue of Scoundrel Days in 1986, and then Stay On These Roads in 1988, A-Ha proved they were more than just a bubble gum band. With a great display of talent for synth-pop, as well as slow and introspective songs, they complemented their cerebral melancholy with equally heavy lyrics. Their first album was virtually that of a different band's, as far as content was concerned. While their debut was a Top 40 teen magnet, their subsequent releases were less radio oriented because they painted profound images. Stay On These Roads especially demonstrated a balance of instruments with a mature,evolved tone. Lastly, while many synth bands focused more on fill-ins and beats which resulted in overkill, Morten Harket's voice definetly stood its ground alongside the melodies (and I do mean MELODIC). This is an essential album which has "best of 80's alternative" written all over it. Trance inducing selections like "Stay On These Roads" and "The Blood That Moves The Body" were more like stories than songs. While the upbeat "Touchy" and the electrically charged "You Are The One" were strong in melody with a variety of instruments taking turns at the forefront."
