Well, Corey's style is definitely a far cry from Diane Warren's (another of my favourites): there are no rhymes here, or seldomly so.
But the storytelling is so powerful one can't break away from its spell.
It was 1985 and i was coming to terms with my being homosexual, not an easy step for a 14 years old kid, and then...BANG! i hear on the radio this song titled NEVER SURRENDER...the lyrics, the music, the harmony...i loved EVERYTHING about it.
Then i come to find out it is by Corey and there's a full album set to be released.
Useless to say that's the song that turned me into a faithful fan.
The album is so much better than his first release.
The songs are all equally powerful and appealing.
Most of them are rock-influenced with a heavy use of synths and fairlights machines, and the result will blow you away.
As well as NEVER SURRENDER, the other BIG ballad to me on the CD is EURASIAN EYES, pure poetry....
If you search for rock tracks, then BOY IN THE BOX and SILENT TALKING are your best bets, supported by wild-driven vocals of Corey.
My favourite non-single track off the CD is the deliciously bouncy, pop tune WAITING FOR YOU, and if you are a hopeless romantic, well, just skip to EVERYTHING IN MY HEART and let yourself be engulfed in a love declaration in music.
The guy showed how to grow more mature in the space of a couple of years, give him credit and buy this CD...you will like it....

1985's "Boy In The Box" #20, is little harder edged over the first album. The first three songs are his best on this disc(MHO). Read morePublished on December 23, 2010 by ScottE
While I would agree this CD should not have been titled Boy In The Box to avoid confusion with the 1985 album, this is actually a very good collection of Corey Hart's hits. Read morePublished on March 12, 2008 by Keith E. Donnelly
