From: SixStringFever Date: March 19, 2001 at 23:02
In my opinion this is Autograph's best album. Steve Lynch's guitar prowess is amazing. The title track says it all. Autograph says it "Loud And Clear"!

From: Bill And Ted Date: March 26, 2001 at 19:54

From: choykifox Date: May 3, 2001 at 22:05
one of my favorite albums of all the time, this one really rocks, just listen to She never looked that good for me and remember how good the 80´s were. Check also Every time I Dream and More than a million times, what else can you ask for?

From: scofenix Date: May 17, 2001 at 21:32
Excellent CD

From: wicked lester Date: June 30, 2001 at 15:09
this is a great 80's cd. i have this on album ,tape and cd. this should be in all hard rock collections. what happened to this great band?

From: Logan-Five Date: July 5, 2001 at 21:06
I agree. This album really rocked. Too bad it was basically a swan song for this band. They were finally starting to come into their own with this disc. I really liked the title track, She Never Looked that good for me, and She's a tease. I believe STeve Plunkett produces bands now.

From: tomcat Date: August 7, 2001 at 9:13
one of the best bands from the 80's. anyone remember that video for 'loud and clear' with vince neil and the ozzman?

From: T-BONE Date: August 12, 2001 at 15:25
Great cd, but Personally I still like Sign In Please better. This cd is much better than Thats The Stuff. I still wish they were around. I remember rockin' out to Turn Up The Radio on the school bus in 5th grade. I was the Bus Rockstar. Autograph brings back a lot of childhood memories. Bring back your childhood and Pass this along to your kids too. Get this cd and show America's youth what REAL music sounds like. There's more to the music world than Shit Bizkits and Vegetables (KORN)

From: DAX Date: October 6, 2001 at 9:00
mi disco favorito de autograph, steve plunkett está sembrado y hay canciones tan cojonudas como "dance all night","every time i dream " ,"down n´dirty " o "more than a million times" geniales... volved chicos el hard rock americano os precisa

From: metal_man73 Date: October 31, 2001 at 14:18
This was my favorite Autograph cd and in my top 20 cds of all time!I never got into keyboards much but they were used perfectly here. The keyboards fit in perfect, so for that I was impressed!

From: metal_man73 Date: October 31, 2001 at 14:20
I would love to see the video again for "Loud And Clear"!!!

From: chris c Date: November 15, 2001 at 12:38
Not much to say that hasn't already been said. By far their best album!

From: Curt Date: March 16, 2002 at 2:01
I agree this is their best album and it didn't get as much attention as the others. Sad but true! I can't find this one in cd and it pisses me off. What's wrong with the record companies. It seems like there's alot of us still out here triing to find certain albums still. They have all of the rest of Autogragh cd's out why not this one.

From: Desslar Date: March 26, 2002 at 12:29
Nice melodies, but not enough rocking. Way too many keyboards. She's a Tease is fun though. You can see the band performing a song in the film "Like Father, Like Son."

From: dokken6008 Date: March 31, 2002 at 15:04
Autograph were one of the few bands out of the eighties who actually used keyboards tastefully and even better than Night Ranger, in my opinion. This is keyboard rock at its finest--not that cheesy shit you were bombarded with from bullshitters like Winger (though I do give Reb Beach my respect). Autograph should have made it so much further but, sadly, never did. It's a shame

From: tman Date: June 19, 2002 at 15:42
This one is very good. Wish they were still around. Loud and Clear is my 2nd favorite Autograph album. If anyone wants to see them play live rent the movie Like Father Like Son (Kirk Cameron and Dudley Moore). This movie came out in 88' and features them playing live at a concert that Kirk's character goes to. It's only for about one minute but fun to watch. They sing my favorite Autograph song "She never looked that good for me".

From: dokken6008 Date: June 27, 2002 at 6:27
Has anyone noticed that with 'Loud and Clear', it looked like the band had finally established themselves and even got their own new logo? It may have not be the most unique logo you have ever seen but it is very cool. And after this what happened? The finest quality keyboard rock in the world and still yet to be challenged had already gone by the mid-80s. What was stopping them? It wasn't grunge, is all I know.

From: Desslar Date: June 27, 2002 at 17:44
I think what stopped them was: 1. Their albums weren't selling 2. Keyboard-heavy metal was losing favor by the late 80s 3. The lead guitarist wanted to quit the band

From: dokken6008 Date: June 28, 2002 at 2:53
That's too bad. I guess you really can't blame Steve for wanting to leave--I mean, that guy should have been a star with his 8-finger tapping and incredible soloing. It went way past "Hammerhead"--that was just the tip of the iceberg as far as his playing went. But I see what you mean with your three reasons.

From: TJ Date: June 28, 2002 at 14:35

From: dokken6008 Date: July 12, 2002 at 7:34
No, I don't know. I'm a lot more interested in what S. Lynch is up to, personally.

From: hardrock Date: July 17, 2002 at 15:51
excellent band of the 80's. i wish they were still together. the song "MORE THAN A MILLION TIMES" REMINDS ME OF HOW LOVE IS AT SOMETIMES.

From: Steve T Date: July 18, 2002 at 8:41
Anyone who loves Autograph needs to track down the Sic Vikki album "Kiss Me In French".....it produced and co written by Steve and is excellent.

From: BEnito Prieto Date: August 22, 2002 at 15:23
hacia tiempo que no escuchaba un grupo como este. Me recuerda ha Antonio Molina en sus mejores tiempos Soy minero es un temazo y como lo versionan estos chicanos es lo mas.

From: Brian Date: September 30, 2002 at 16:23
Hey, I'm 23 years old and I think Autograph are very talented. If they ever reformed and played a club somewhere around here, I would be first in line for tickets. "She Never Looked That Good For Me" should have been a number one single, what the hell happened? Oh well.

From: Brian Date: October 11, 2002 at 15:37
By the way I have Loud And Clear on CD, cassette, and record. All brand new and still sealed, how cool is that?

From: Brian Date: October 11, 2002 at 15:49
One more thing I have an Autograph webpage. It has a biography, discography, pictures, MP3's, real media video clips from all of Autograph's videos, and updates on what the band members are currently doing. Here is the address: http://www.anycities.com/autograph/autograph.htm

From: SixStringFever Date: October 17, 2002 at 23:22
Autograph is my favorite band but I think this could have been a much more rocking album if they had just approached the mixing differently. The bass is too overbearing and the guitar distortion is stuck in the background. Oh well the songs are still great Loud And Clear, Dance All Night, She Never Looked That Good For Me, Bad Boy, Just Got Back From Heaven.

From: nitrodoll Date: October 17, 2002 at 23:29
best rock band from the eighties: autograph.. just got back from heaven

From: M. Allen Date: November 10, 2002 at 18:46
Yes, this album would be better without all the keyboards, but even with them present, this is still a pretty good melodic hard rock release and by far the best of AUTOGRAPH's studio releases. I think if they had put out another album circa. 1989/90, it would have been killer, as evidenced by the tracks on "Missing Pieces," which showcased the harder-edged sound the band was aiming for. Regardless, "Loud and Clear" is a signature piece in any 80s hard rock collection.

From: dokken6008 Date: November 11, 2002 at 3:21
Ooooh boy, didn't this board light up with responses in the months I've been gone. Maybe more albums could be as good as Autograph's 'Loud and Clear' and more rock bands could innovate and create less-cliched music if everyone and their grandmother's weren't out there pretending they knew how to play the electric guitar. If more people knew how to actually play their instruments and maybe more people could master the art of playing the keyboard, music wouldn't be so freakin' boring. Yeah.

From: dokken6008 Date: November 11, 2002 at 3:22
Keyboard rock at its finest.

From: Ray Date: November 19, 2002 at 16:16
The first one and this one are the only ones worth buying. Loud and Clear is hard rock at its best.

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: November 27, 2002 at 3:25
Buenísimos, es un auténtico grupazo del nivel de los Motley , Dokken, Ratt.... Osea uno de los grandes. A sido una gratísima sorpresa. Recomendadísimo.

From: Melodiker Date: February 7, 2003 at 15:34
This CD is my favourite,from this Guys ! 9\10

From: metalhead4ever Date: April 12, 2003 at 1:56
Obviously this CD rock's and will always be one of my favorites and that's all I have to say for this band. It would be amazing if all record stores could have ties to every record label (i'd imagine that computer's are there for a reason) so why not have every album ever made in this world be available so that when we purchase a CD in a record store we can make up our own CD'S with whatever music or cover we wish from any album? I'm sure alot of people have thought of that idea before.

From: Kim Date: June 11, 2003 at 16:52
Stop complaining about the keyboards! hey this is pop metal from the 80's. What do you expect? Sure, Autograph might have used keyboards more than other bands, but they did it with style. Not like Quiet Riot or such bands who totally ruined their songs. Autograph actually did have some talent, and should have made it. By the way, did I mention this album rocks?

From: George Vader Date: June 30, 2003 at 2:31
I remember buying this Lp on import for £10, which was a lot of money back then, boy was it worth it. Recently picked it up on CD for £5!!!!

From: visitor Date: August 20, 2003 at 5:08
Memories... I was 16 and a frequent customer in a record store in my hometown. The owner knew I was into hard rock so everytime I went there, he started playing some hard rock records for me, hoping I would buy some of them. I rarely got really interested in anything he played, but one day he put this one in his stereo, and I was totally stunned since the first bars of the title song. I listened to a couple next songs and was convinced & hooked. I had to buy it, and it still is one of my fav´s!!

From: ted_ Date: September 20, 2003 at 9:37
Coincido con malllorca´s rock un verdadero discazo de hard rock comercial americano en la line a de motley crue,poison,ratt,warrant..lo recomiendo totalmente

Along with "That's the Stuff", I liked this one better than "Sign In Please" as well. I remember being home sick from school one day, and calling in & voting for the "Loud and Clear" video like 40 times on Dial MTV...it was video #10 that day,and to my knowledge, never made the countdown again. "She Never Looked That Good For Me" is a favorite as well.

From: Mattboy71 Date: February 25, 2004 at 0:53
This CD rocks because of the producer. Andy Johns was a long time friend of the band back in the day but couldn't produce the earlier stuff due to a busy schedule or something. I agree that this was their best effort. SIP was a little uneven, TTS was rushed but has great melodies. LAC was just too late with not enough support from RCA. They were a little silly (Plunk's hair was ! But he had one amazing rock voice) but definitely ahead of the party rock that came into play after they disbanded.

From: PUTI Date: April 8, 2004 at 15:11

From: IvoryTowerWoman Date: June 24, 2004 at 16:25
Loved this cd best of everything Autograph did. Loud and Clear says it all "if it's too loud, you're too old"...

From: Alex_5150 Date: September 8, 2004 at 13:04
This album is all about Sex, Booze and ROck and Roll!!!! I always play this cd when I'm partying with hot girls!!

From: Geoff Date: September 8, 2004 at 21:00
'She never looked that good for me' is my favourite Autograph song ever - a killer melodic gem. 'Everytime I dream' is an awesome melodic gem too, as is 'Just got back from heaven' and the excellent 'More than a million times'. I play those 4 a lot and rate them very high as melodic gems. Not too much of the rest, but a good solid album anyway.

From: Lynchomaniac Date: October 14, 2004 at 11:06
Great album a Melodic Hardrock/A.O.R classic, their best IMO

From: Jez Date: May 9, 2005 at 12:49
After the 'treading water' that was the 'That's The Stuff' album, Autograph hit back big time with this album. While not quite as good as 'Sign In..' it runs it pretty close, and does feature 2 of the best tracks the band ever wrote in 'She Never Looked That Good' and the terrific 'More Than A Million Times'. The rest is pretty darned good aswell, but just falls short of the debut in the consistency of a couple of tracks.

From: Dreamaholic Date: May 16, 2005 at 6:03
Andy Johns stepped in to save his friends careers but it didn't work. Solid but unspectacular, and the record company cut them loose. Dance All Night and She Never Looked That Good To Me are probably my favorites here. Recommended for the price. And for die-hard Autograph fans, check out the Youngblood soundtrack for the song Winning Is Everything. It's pretty good.

From: glammyboy Date: June 21, 2005 at 9:54
Gran Disco...El mejor de AUTOGRAPH para mi... Loud 'N'Clear, Dance All Night... puro hardrock ochentero YEAHHHH

From: Missing the 70's Date: December 8, 2005 at 13:21
Good 80's Glam

From: Henrykane Date: June 25, 2006 at 12:14
This album is what L.A. Metal is all about: big guitars, brilliant choruses and Sunset Boulevard top-down cruisin' lyrics. Love this classic with all of my heart.

From: Lovedrive Date: July 31, 2006 at 15:35
No está mal! "Dance all night" para mi, la mejor del disco.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: August 9, 2006 at 10:31
Very good album, las comparaciones arriba bien Dokken y Ratt son buenas ya que ellos si practican tambien algo de AOR en su estilo, pero Poison y Motley no pues ellos si son Glam aunque tambien es cierto que la voz de Steve es como esas bandas de Glam es decir una voz promedio pero el estilo de Autograph es diferente con mas gusto y clase ahora este album no llega a la altura del primero pero es muy bueno el tema que abre el disco el mejor 9/10

From: metalhead4life Date: November 8, 2006 at 20:44
Cannot go wrong with any of the first 3 Autograph albums. Not sure which one I like better, this one or Sign In Please - this one just a little bit more. That's The Stuff is ok and follows the same style but the songs aren't as strong.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 26, 2006 at 12:20
"Loud and clear" is the only track atractive to me but surely this ain't a bad album.not as catchy as the sing in please plate but good.

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 29, 2006 at 22:26
Again some really solid gems,with some not so soild filler. Better than "Sign In Please", but still not quite there. If the disc had better flow, ratter then being as touch and go as it is, it would be a better listen.

From: juan carlos Date: October 5, 2008 at 1:25
Wow choykifox, you nails it here and no doubt it´s your favorite album hehe(do U remember?). Your comments is very old on this page Bro. no doubt that U are from the old shool Cheers. Btw I agree with you, this is an absolute classic album. 9/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 5, 2008 at 11:54
Wow! my comment here with my old nick scofenix uff! since may of 2001 cheers to my student chuckyfox

From: edwithmj Date: February 6, 2009 at 22:53
This one really grows on you. As a fan of keyboards, I must say that the very strong drums and keyboards make this a masterpiece. The first three songs and Just Got Back From heaven are very catchy and hard rocking numbers. Get it, you won't be disappointed. I wasn't. 95/100

From: rockhardrock Date: April 21, 2009 at 17:57
eventhough their best album is their debut, this one is very close to it. much better than their second effort. my favs: Load and Clear, Dance All Night, She Never Looked That Good For Me and Just Got Back From Heaven.

From: erik Date: April 25, 2009 at 11:20
Maybe their best ! The first 3 songs are awesome. Powerfull sound but always melodic with the keyboards. 80ies Heaven She's a Tease is a good rocker, Just got back from Heaven is another melodic rock gem, Down and Dirty another ok rocker, More then a million times a very nice mid pased song and the album closes in style with a very melodic typical Autograph rock song When the Sun goes Down. 90/100

From: Eva Galli Date: August 4, 2009 at 21:44
Loud N Clear, WOWWWW Oh my... the base guitar is awesome, what a riff It was in my mp4 for a long time, and now after one year this song stills in my digital player. 9/10

From: CMGio Date: April 10, 2010 at 18:43
Autograph's best effort. Every song on this record is killer. And as usual, Steve Lynch's guitar playing is outta sight!

From: happy2849 Date: December 12, 2010 at 11:52
I remember picking this one up many years ago in a cut-out bin for $1.99. Was not sure I really sure wanted it because of their earlier releases. Glad I got it. Seems to rock a little more their earlier stuff and more consistant.

From: Remastered Reason Date: December 15, 2010 at 17:01
This album is still freakin awesome all these years later. Plunkett has that David Lee Roth macho quality in his voacl delivery & even squelches somewhat like him in places. I believe they toured with Van Halen in '84. Anyway, the keyboards are played & placed well within the song structures & not overblown, which is no small feat, especially for a record that came out in '87. Overall, still a very tasty record.

From: the rocker Date: December 26, 2011 at 12:07
My favorite cd from these guys, with their best song on it. She never looked that good for me is one of my favorite songs from that era period! Then we have Loud and clear, Dance all night, She's a tease, & Bad boy which are all really good tracks with a couple of other decent and a couple of filler tracks.

From: Buitre Date: December 29, 2011 at 10:52
I'm not a fan of keyboards and their stile is a little bit to mellow for me but, you know what? I bought it because the quality of the songs is there and for my it's a catchy background music.

From: 123charpenay Date: October 14, 2014 at 14:12
my fav autograph s records.i love their two first realise, but here ...we touch the sky.the more mature,the more consistant and the more smart autograph s realise.this album is simply a masterpiece.only killers songs they have making many progress since their brilliant debut.unfortunatelly no bonus tracks on the very rare japan import.nevertheless buy buy buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 9, 2016 at 13:43
Listening carefully to this release once again and the only thing i can tell you guys is that i was completely wrong in my 2006 comment ...anyway tracks 1(great!,as i mentioned way back),2,3(AORish),4(AORish),6 & 9 are valuable ones for sure...Glam Metal?...not that much,this is more of a Hard Rock/Hard AOR album...enjoyable stuff!...87/100

From: Dx7 Date: October 30, 2021 at 7:45
Complete, compact, arranged by real professionals and played by rock champions: this is Loud and Clear. A disc always varied between joy and melancholy

From: 123charpenay Date: March 14, 2022 at 18:28
autograph belong to the very closed circle of the bands wich are unable to write a bad song.all their records are brilliant ,catchy,very solid and very consistant, start to finish.like for example white widdow,grand design or wildsouls.
