"In 1987, Richard Marx had become a big star in releasing his first album entitled simply, RICHARD MARX. In 1989, two years after the release of his first album, Richard Marx released his second album entitled, REPEAT OFFENDER, his best album by far. This is an album that I most certainly cannot get enough of, no matter how many times a day I play this one.
NOTHIN' YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT
The fourth single from the album. A great song to use to open up your sophmore album. This is one hard and heavy song.
The first single from the album. This was Richard Marx's second #1 hit single, talking about not giving up your goals until you are satisfied. This is one of the songs where his voice is at its strongest.
The third single from the album. This song is one of my favorites from the album. Richard actually come up with this song title when he was on a flight to Texas. The flight attendant's name was Angelia (pronounced as Angel Lee-a). He used the name for this title and just wrote down the lyrics to this amazing song.
TOO LATE TO SAY GOODBYE
The fifth single from the album. This is another great song, with an edgy beat and rock sound.
RIGHT HERE WAITING
The second single from the album. When I first heard this song, like five years ago, I was not crazy about it. I didn't even like it. But when I became one of Richard Marx's biggest fans, I grow to love this song very much. It ranks up there with his most biggest and cherished hits.
HEART ON THE LINE
A great song.
IF YOU DON'T WANT MY LOVE
I never turn off this song when it comes on.
THAT WAS LULU
WAIT FOR THE SUNRISE
CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT
The sixth & final single from the album. What inspired Richard to write and record this song was a shelter of kids who had severe problems in their lives, such as abuse from their parents. He just wrote the song and recorded it, with the help of some of the kids putting their backing vocals on the song. It was actually the first song, where Richard Marx's late father had composed the music. This song is another one of my favorites.
If you a Richard Marx fan and you loved his first album, then get out and buy this incredible follow-up to its worthy predecessor. And I mean run out and but a copy RIGHT NOW!"
