This was the debut of a good Canadian rock band. Damn near an institution at one point. This was a great debut and many canadian bands were playing tracks 1,2 & 7 in the bars. What memories

From: Ray Date: November 30, 2002 at 9:08
The first from a great band. Sounds outdated now. "Turn me Loose", "The Kid is Hot Tonight", and "Lady of the 80s" are classics and gave us a glimpse of what was yet to come from the guys. A couple of new wave tunes mess up the album a little, but I guess they were experimenting to find "the sound". My only real complaint is: what happened on the cover???

From: Gar Date: June 2, 2003 at 6:42
This was one of the first records I ever owned, so I'll always have a soft spot for it. Sounds totally cheesy today, but its still a pretty lively affair. There was some musical experimentation going on on this album. They kinda stuck to playing straight ahead rock for their follow up releases.

From: byrdman69 Date: December 15, 2003 at 12:51
Turn Me Loose, what a cool song! This music is good, not great, but good fun music that brings back a lot of memories. Oh, those vinyl records......to be a teenager again...........not bad!

From: GlenRavine Date: March 23, 2004 at 13:12
Fantastic debut - all great tunes - finest AOR from a great band.

From: Big Mike Date: April 7, 2004 at 15:50
Good Album. The sound has dated but there's some really good songs on this which are hard to ignore.

Always remember hearing 'Turn Me Loose' for the first time - one of those goosebump moments. The rest of the album is great aswell,with Prissy,Prissy being my other favourite - love the Guitar solo on this one. Admittedly it does sound a little dated in places, but the overall quality of the album , especially for a debut, can't be denied.

From: Geoff Date: September 19, 2005 at 7:05
This is really not my typical musical scene, but you know what? 'Turn me loose' is a cool pop rocker with a great hook, and 'Always on my mind' is a great AOR balladic track. The rest is way too 80's pop or synth orientation for me, but those 2 tracks are cool.

From: caritosmatanza Date: January 28, 2006 at 12:31
Estaban en pañales, angelitos.Algún tema suena bien , pero aún no eran aor, si bien se apuntaban maneras y sonidos en ese sentido. Muchos dicen que a diferencia de la mayoría, que venían del hard/metal y dulcificaron sus sonidos, estos chicos querían ser abba y acabaron queriendo ser bon jovi. SErá , este disco demuestra que querían tener un sonido más orientado al pop, pero gracias a que se pusieron las pilas, tuvimos luego algunos de los mejores discos de aor de la década.6/10

From: edwithmj Date: February 8, 2010 at 19:13
Damn this album is good. I thought this was going to be all ballads but it's hard 80s rock with a fair helping of keyboards. The Kid is Hot Tonite, Turn Me Loose and D.O.A. are wonderful songs. The vocalist is great too.

From: Animal! Date: January 28, 2011 at 21:20
This still stands up to time. turn me loose and the kid is hot tonite would be hits today. fantastic first effort.

From: Old Rocker Date: March 14, 2012 at 19:40
What a great debut album and an excellent vocalist in Mike Reno. Turn Me Loose still sounds as good today as it ever did, The Kid Is Hot Tonight - what a great opener, so many good songs, really good band.

From: hair metal again Date: July 12, 2019 at 12:30
very good debut for LOVERBOY , straight to success with those short radio fiendly tunes and excellent production!all the songs are remarkable and there is a certain balance betwen keys and guitars and a sound in general that really fit at the moment!"the kid is hot tonite","turn me loose","always on my mind" and "prissy prissy" are great songs indeed!

From: tomdwa Date: April 8, 2020 at 12:57
This really already predicts what was bound to come: a new succesful melodic rock-band with a unique sound. They're still searching for their identity on this debut album, that has one clear winner and highlight: the anthemic Turn me loose!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 26, 2020 at 16:39
Good AOR! "Turn Me Loose (A1), Always on My Mind, Teenage Overdose, D.O.A., It Don't Matter" 80/100.
