I have a hard time determining whether this album was better than Take Another Picture. What really gets me cranked up was that Back Into Blue was the last of their three albums. Period. With the talent involved, particularly Rindy Ross on resonant vocals and sax, plus Marv Ross's heavy guitar, and the heavy sheets of synthesizers that formed a pulsing backbeat that defined classic 80's music, I felt they merited at least another album or two.
That being said, the racing, breakneck speed of electronic drums and in sync keyboard bass make "Walking On Ice" the best track on the album. In terms of tempo, think Blondie's "I'm Gonna Love You Too" or "You Crack Me Up" by Huey Lewis and the News.
After a nice sax solo by Rindy, "Caught In The Rain" starts with a catchy synthesizer melody that reminds me of Kim Carnes' "Bette Davis Eyes." with a chorus punctuated by the ringing harmony of the backing vocals. The song yearns of a time of being together, in the eye of the storm after being caught in the rain, i.e. "I will wait for you forever, cause I'm still caught in the rain."
The title track, a sad slow number, describes that emotional return to someone despite instincts to the contrary: "Some people learn, some will lose/Some people never see a single clue/but here I go, here I go, back into blue."
The second single, "Talk To Me" could've been done by Laura Branigan, although when Rindy sings the pre-chorus "I don't want to wait here anymore/I can't face another closing door...", I think Blondie could've had a shot at this up-tempo song of loneliness. Thing is, I can't envision them being sax compatible the way Quarterflash was.
The heartmelting ballad "I Want To Believe It's You" is another favorite here.

This is the definative Quarterflash album. It was only ever released here in the U.K. on tape way back in the mid eighties. There is not one dud track on it! I can only thoroughly recommend Back into Blue to all, it sounds as good now as it did so far back in the eighties. Anyone who shares my admiration could E Mail me-I'd really like to hear from you.

I saw Quarterflash open up for Elton John in July 1982, they're opening act was truly unforgettable! While the 1st two discs have a more raw sound, the third one is a little more glitzy and synthesized sound. Catchy in a way but by no means bad, for whatever reason it didn't sell nearly as well. Die hard fans should check out Girl in the Wind, a rare material cd, greatest hits and a 2 disc video set<ebay>, or Trail Band material. A band that I think of when I think of the 80's.

While I think the cover might have had something to do with the lack of sales, the music itself is a treasure chest of great rock n roll. This is a very moody and sensual record and one of the first albums to be recorded digitally and come out as a compact disc. It sounds great with "Walking on Ice" as the best song on the record followed by "Talk to Me" "Back into Blue" and "Love Without a Net". It is a good collection of songs and I recommend highly recommend it.

Exceptional effort and very well produced. A slightly more "synth-pop" feel than the first two albums but the production is impeccable, Marv's guitar work is consistent, and Rindy's voice and sax do not disappoint. This album should have sold much better as the tracks are all excellent any many were hit-worthy. [I'll have a more detailed review coming up for all the tracks.]
