Great album, bad conversion

"This is REO's best album. A great rocker. The song Easy Money is one of the greatest unknown songs that I know of.
Notice I said Album though, because I must warn you that the CD is a bad conversion. I really hope that someone remasters it. I noticed that on my cd that some of the guitars were hard to here and some seemed to be missing all together. So I played it in a different player with headphones and discovered that about a third of the way through that the left track was kicking out. So, thinking that I had a bad copy, i ordered another and was bummed to find the same problem.
I cant praise the album enough, BUT if you know this album you will really notice the missing sounds."
A great rock and roll albun

"I love this album--this is a great album to get if you like heavy rock. I love to crank this cd (I have upgraded from the album) in my car-- even though my kids think I am a dork-- still great listening after all these years.

"I had been listening to REO for just a little while (You Can Tune a Piano and Live, You Get What You Play) when this release came out. Other than 'I Need You Tonight' from Cronin (the start of his knack for writing the top 40 hit) this is a great and very under-rated album that not too many have stumbled upon. Fans really picked up on REO with their Hi-Infidelity release. I love this album because it still brings you the REO sound from their previous albums and maybe even a little bit heavier. This is when Cronin sounds his best and really seems the right fit for the band after replacing Luttrell way back after their first album and then replacing Murphy(after their third) for their Live album. For me this album just sticks out like a sore thumb because its so different from all their next releases. This never really got much airplay on the radio that I can remember, but lots of play on the turntable. From this point on REO never looked back to their early days and that sound they created. Instead Cronin led the charge into top 40 stardom and, I guess, there wasn't any turning back because if they did who would buy it. Unfortunately, fans fell in love with Cronin and his ballads much to the early fans dismay. Pick this cd up today. A great rocker."
