|Paul is like Canada's answer to Rick Springfield. He even got Rick's producer, Bill Drescher, on his 1990 'Renegade Romantic' CD. This CD relies less on gimmicks than that one, opting for a sturdy AOR approach similar to Alfie Zappacosta. 'One Night is All It Takes' is a hard rockin' anthem that was foolishly left off his 1992 'Presence' (best of) compilation. (What were they thinking??) Easily the best song on this great CD, with 'Go to Pieces' coming in a close second.

|The pomp beginning of 'One Night Is All It Takes' does indeed take us on a journey of tasteful and well produced melodic rock. Then there's the awesome 'Send Me A Miracle', pretty much an AOR piece of perfection, as are the delicious choruses of 'We Touch' and those Huff like guitar passages. The title track 'Electricity' is quite literally hot wired for sound and moves and shakes in an upbeat fashion.

|Hey guys, is this one worth getting? Have seen it for 40/$50 or so. If it's a good as some of Springfields stuff I might pick it up... Cheers.

|Managed to get this off eBay for Ģ2, which is a steal as this is awesome. Very lightweight, smooth AOR (like Rick Price, or early Stan Meissner) but a very high quality album. There's a lot of ballads on here, but I actually prefer them to the up-tempo tracks. 'Believe In Me' and 'We Touch' are two such quality slower tracks, but closer 'One Last Lie' is a brilliant up-tempo AOR tune with a killer chorus. If you like super-smooth AOR, DO NOT MISS THIS.

|Very good follow up to the 'High Strung' album (just re-issued on Escape). As TIM says above, Lightweight, but very high quality, with some excellent material on offer.

|I wouldn't be surprised to see here people call this pop rather than AOR, as this makes Journey's 'Raised on radio' appear of death metal nature. I dislike this CD with a large degree of dislike - not because it's as soft as a petal on a kitten, but because the songs, IMO are disasters. IMO it'sjust weak and the guy is not a shadow of what Rick Springfield is, IMO of course.
