Existing comments about this CD

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 24, 2006 at 20:47
Firstly, the massive guitar riff that blows out your speakers at about 1 second into the first song hardly helps to quantify this as lite AOR music. This is a mixed bag of hard rock, & quirky new wave. Lots of harmony vocals which compliment Donnie & his powerful voice drenched with keyboards galore. Being partial to the rock elements, then the highlights include: "Ah Leah", "Agnes", "I Can't Hear You" & "She's So Wild". A good overall sonic comparision would be liken to The Cars at the time.

A ver, me llegó en un pedido por hacer caso a una conocida página de cds aoreros.La mdre que me parió.Llamad al médico,porque no veo ni lite aor ni aor ni westcoast por ningún lado.Madre mía, qué horror.Será bueno para paladares poperillos indies pero..madre mía.¿se podrá devolver?.0/10 como lite aor, 3/10 como...yo qué sé.

I'm a hard rock kinda guy, but I really like this album. "Ah Leah" is definitely a classic. "Back On The Streets" also a great tune. The comment from "Remastered Reason" is a good description--"hard rock and quirky new wave". The whole album is pretty good. I don't have a lot of exposure to the other Donnie Iris albums, but from a rock perspective; I feel this is the best one.

Donnie's first album...well this guy was heavily influenced by bands such as The Cars,Cheap Trick and on the new wave/punk side,Devo!!!(IMO)...not a bad release,in fact,it had a hit single in the shape of "Ah,Leah!" that for my own point of view it sucked..."Joking","Schock Treatment"(nice song and with The Cars sound by the 4 sides!),"Back On The Streets","You're Only Dreaming"(nice),"Daddy Don't Live Here Anymore"(nice)& "Too Young To Love"(nice)are my faves...come on caritosmatanza it ain't that bad dude ...a matter of tastes i believe...80/100
