These poppy hard rockers went to form the much better, much harder Wall of Silence. Some good tracks on this CD include 'Slave to the Thrill' and 'Love is a Dangerous Weapon'. Fans of The Explorers, Nuthouse-era Haywire or In n' Out will find this enjoyable.

This is a damn fine CD and worth your money ! But Koogles has it right, they went into Wall Of Silence, and that one is a real WINNER. Harder, but very melodic ! A MUST HAVE !!!!!

Was expecting more - but again - totally disappointed - didn't like this disc at all - thank god they went on to make the 'Wall Of Silence' which is 10x better - bypass this and grab 'Shock To The System' by Wall Of Silence.

All three members of this great Canadian AOR group, formed Wall of silence a few years after this release, extending their brilliant reign as some of Canada's top AOR/hard rock songwriters. This cd features music they wrote as 'The Works' throughout the late 80s. Full of energy and high-octane choruses in the Explorers-Honeymoon Suite-Harem Scarem vein.

From: TIM (2) Date: June 7, 2004 at 9:32
Long Island actually released this together with the Wall of Silence 'Shock to the System' on 1 CD, in their classics series. That's the one to have if you don't have either CD....

I found this to be pretty boring accept a couple of tracks the rest i'm sure would put the average person to sleep.

decent debut album.on the same songs some good parts and others ..hum not terrific.wall of silence is far far better.

From: hair metal again Date: November 28, 2016 at 4:13
fantastic hard rock debut for THE WORKS with excellent musicianship ,vocals and full of quality hooks that keep your interest high!not many big songs ,but a solid whole with many great lines and big moments!if you liked WALL OF SILENCE you def need to get this amazing release!"slave to the thrill","standing on shaky ground","fool to love you " and "dancing on a wing " are sensational songs indeed!essential

Hair Metal Again: Man, sometimes I scratch my head. First you say "not many big songs but a solid whole," and then you say it's an "amazing" record with many "sensational songs." Which is it?

The other comments seem to keep comparing this to the Wall of Silence album without actually reviewing this. This frustrated me enough to get this album myself so I could listen for myself. It's certainly not as good as Wall of Silence but it has its own distinct sound I think which I actually like a lot. The opener is very decent with excellent drums and heavy bass; I especially like the vocals too. Wild Reaction is a fast-paced rocker with a Loverboy kind of feel to it. Dancing on a Wing is also very melodic and the guitars are super. Broadway Jane took me by surprise when I first heard it; for me, sax has to be done just right for it to work, otherwise it can ruin a song, but here it works very well; the vocals are extremely catchy too and I'd have to say, this is my favourite off the album. Miss Perfection is another one with catchy vocals and a decent rhythm to keep me interested. Slave To The Thrill is probably my second favourite and is another fast-paced rocker.

From: edwithmj Date: November 28, 2016 at 19:48
Fool to love You is probably my least favourite: I don't think the song is cohesive enough as it sounds all over the place. Standing On Shaky Ground gets things going again and is yet another fast-paced rocker with those wonderful vocals again. Robbery has the best solo on the disc by far and will satisfy the ears. The album ends on a high note with a semi-ballad of sorts with Sherri's Gone which I think lasts slightly too long; the vocals and guitars are passionate enough to excuse this I think though. I think a lot of people unfairly compare this with the more straight-ahead melodic rock sound of Wall of Silence (the singer, the guitarist and the keyboardist went on to that band) which I think is a shame because this album is full of highlights and should be judged (like anything really) on its own merit. A very good album in its own right.

Doghouse Reilly : i guess is the way i feel ...listening to THE WORKS makes me realize this is a great band ,but on the other hand with "no big songs" i mean that they couldnt write down songs that were on from other bands back in 89 !"sensational" and"no big" arent opposites my friend!
