A good album from Little River Band with a new lead singer.
(4 out of 5 stars)
""The Net" was Little River Band's first album with new lead singer John Farnham and features two Billboard top 40 hits "You're Driving Me Out Of My Mind and "We Two",also a really nice funky track with a good guitar solo called "Sleepless Nights" and a top ten Australian hit called "Down On The Border".It also features an eccellent long track with Beeb Birtles on lead called "Mr Socialite" with classic LRB harmonies and a bonus track called "One Day"(described by the band as "a song of hope").Overall,an eccellent album of strong tracks,it is by far their best album with Farnham on lead vocals."
What a disc !

"was so happy to find another copy of this great CD.. i tore it up many years ago on an old cassette deck.. remember those? with the new lead singer i was really blown away.. the original lead vocalist was also great but this was a whole new flavor for this band.. an excellent CD with the great LRB vocals too... if you can buy it do so ...."
The Best Out Of Print Album I've Heard

"The Net was LRB's first album with John Farnham, after Glenn Shorrock departed from the band in 1982. The album was released after the Greatest Hits album which had one song with Farnham singing lead vocals The Other Guy which cracked #11, in the top 100 singles. The Net which peaked at #61, featured a saxophone driven lead off single You're Driving Me Out of My Mind which cracked the top 40 peaking at #35. We Too fared a little better climbing to #22. Farnham deliberately tried to avoid becoming a clone of Shorrock almost immediately adapting his vocal style to fit the LRB mold. The album itself, it one of the best out of print albums I've ever heard. Even songs that didn't capture me initially like The Danger Sign and the Net eventually grew on me. The first three songs You're Driving Me Out of My Mind, We Too and especially No More Tears almost define the Farnham era that lasted from 1983 until 1986. The second five tracks are more of an acquired taste than the first five. Additionally, the bonus track One Day is good enough that you're left wondering why it was left off the original album."
