|Also a good one. Catchy pop AOR with hi-tech touch. Sounds like a mix of PM and The Fixx maybe ?

|Your Love and All The Love are classic POP/AOR songs. These guys have a great song or two on each album but in my opinion never put out a fantastic album. This one is a good album and worth picking up

|This one was the first (sold app. 3 mio times) for the band from London which actually sounds like an American one. Although their albums are not bad, I would go for their Best-Of "Big Innings" which contains the best songs of their career already. You should definitely listen to "Your Love" or "Voices of Babylon" (from their "89 album), this is Power Pop / Lite AOR at its best!

|A good power pop band with a couple fun tunes.
||Date: June 21, 2004 at 1:28|
|a so-so group! 50/100

|I love this album! I agree with James(above). A definite 80's classic! Even though the song "Your Love" received probably the most attention on the radio then & still today, there were other songs that were produced very well, like: - 61 Seconds, All the Love, Talk to Me, Mystery Man,& Say It Isn't So). I just don't understand why some of the previous writers stated that this album was average. Tony Lewis has a unique sound(voice) which is why I love this CD so much!!! Very reasonable$$ on Ebay

|Harry - this band are still alive and kicking - check out "Extra Innings" and their latest "Any Time Now".They are as good if not better than"Play Deep".
||Date: July 21, 2004 at 18:54|
|Thanks "rocketron", I already have them both- "Big Innings & Any Time Now" Both are great! Hopefully Heavy Harmonies will add these two albums to the three that are already listed. Then we can post our praise even more for the Outfield. Take Care. bye
||Date: July 21, 2004 at 19:15|
|Harry- "Big Innings" is a best-of compilation."Extra Innings is an album of new recordings available from the bands website. Worth getting.Nice to find someone else who likes this very underrated band. Cheers.

|AHHH THE OUTFIELD, QUIEN NO DISFRUTO DE ESTA BANDA, ME ENCANTA SU ESTILO. UN AOR FRESCO Y LIMPIO.

|I would have to say that this is my favorite Outfield album. I'm listening to Bangin' right now and thought I'd check out others opinions of the band and hoped to get some thoughts on the latter releases. I was disappointed that Rockeye with Winning It All isn't here. Say It Isn't So have to be favorite from Play Deep. Big iInnings is good. It has the hits and some alternate versions of previously release stuff. By the way, this is the first comment I've ever made at this site! Lance

|Y que pasa con los Hispanos que no comentan de este gran grupo que lleno nuestras vidas(en mi caso mi niñez) con su buena musica, un album muy completo y el mejor de ellos que duda queda All the Love, Your Love, All the Love, 61 Seconds, I Dont Need Her... grandes cortes que jamas pasaran de moda por ese sonido Fresco e Intemporal 9/10. otro de mis favoritos de siempre.

|Entiendo el que no muchos les guste este grupo, pero para mi este es uno de los discos del siglo. Los maestros de PoppyAOR se lucen en este genial album, ningun temas es malo y, es cierto rafo, recuerda nuestra niñez! temazos como "your love", "say it isn´t so" "taking my chances" "everytime your cry" "all the love" "talk to me" "mystery man" uff.. por no decir todo.. y ese fin mágico con "nervous alibi" en fin.. a muchos este grupo es un fiasco.. para mi es uno de los discos de mi vida.. 10/10

|Damn. Essential is written all over this one. Very good AOR and needs to be heard by all that covet this type of music. Not a bad song on this one. A staple for me throughout the 80's. Recommended if not required.

|These guys ruled the radio waves when this one came out. I finally replaced all my old cassettes with cds. This is very catchy AOR. I loved every track on here. A very impressive debut.

|Que temazo TALK TO ME, no?

|AWESOME LITE AOR!! Gran disco con ciertas influencias de grupos como The Fixx, Flock Of Seagulls(por las guitarras), es decir, del New Wave 80s, por ahi encontramos ciertas influencias de The Police, sobre todo por la voz de Tony Lewis y coros en la línea de The Beatles y los Beach Boys, lo que nos dá por resultado, el maravilloso y atemporal sonido que THE OUTFIELD desplegó con este PLAY DEEP, sonido que ya no volvió a repetir, aunque quizá a cuentagotas en el BANGIN´, y en el BABYLON...

|y parale de contar, pues los demas discos, a mi parecer no dan la talla ni se le acercan minimamente a esta maravilla, pues carecen de esa frescura y ese factor sorpresa que prevalecía en PLAY DEEP. A destacar: "Say It Is´nt So" que contiene el estilo del grupo a plenitud, con esas guitarras New Waveseras pero con esa melodía que los apartaba de esa moda new wave y la voz aguda y melódica de Tony Lewis y esos coros bellos; "Your Love" es un clásico para toda la vida, un tema único y genial!...

|"I Don´t Need Her" nos muestra claramente las influencias a lo Flock Of Seagulls que forjaron tempranamente el estilo de THE OUTFIELD; la hermosa "Everytime You Cry" una balada 80s total; "All The Love", otra clasica joya, quien no la ha oido; "Talk To Me" con esa sencillez a lo Beatles primera epoca, pero con una frescura propia de esa maravillosa época de los 80s; "Taking My Chances" con sensacionales dobles vocales y la misteriosa "Nervous Alibi" cierra el album. Disco UNICO e IRREPETIBLE!!

|by far their best realise! Very good.
||Date: July 11, 2009 at 20:47|
|Haha, my first concert! Outside in the rain , but they were great and I had a good time. The majority of the songs are good and not much, if any, filler. Great pop rock record.

|everybody write The Outfield is a pop band.....sorry but i can´t find any pop in their songs....it´s a great AOR Band with Rock mix!!

|Lovely debut by The Outfield...i personally enjoy these kinds of bands with that AOR/POP/ROCK feel and sound..."Say It Ins't So" & "Your Love" were a couple of hit singles back in the day,"I Don't Need Her" is a very good one too along with "61 Seconds"(catchy),"All The Love"(nice,like it a lot)& "Taking My Chances"(brilliant!)...Tony Lewis' kind of singing reminds me of Sting!!! ...87/100
||Date: May 18, 2011 at 16:16|
|Can remember when this came out. Great debut! Catchy songs and overall clean sound. Every song on this one is good.

|very good pop rock debut by THE OUTFIELD back in the mid 80 s with fine production ,musicianship and very fine vocals by Tony Lewis!overall they remind me of a radio friendly version of YES without being so proggy!"your love"&"taking my chances" are excellent songs indeed
||Date: July 1, 2020 at 15:10|
|The hit single Your love is a no-brainer here, fantastic tune that you will hum all day once you heard it. Taking my chances is another favorite.
