This is one of billy's best albums.

This is the follow up to Dont Say No, Billy Squier's huge breakthrough album. Its a mystery as to why it is currently out of print, as it is as enjoyable as Dont Say No. This album was co produced by Mack with Billy Squire, and Mack was responsible for helping Queen on their albums, The Game and Hot Space. Its as valid a work as any follow up and still holds up 20 years later. Cover art was created by Andy Warhol and the image rights may be holding up a reissue. Used copies are out there, so dont despair!

I can remember proudly displaying my "I love Billy Squier" pin at school on my jean jacket, and all I have to say 20 years later is where the heck is that pin?
Back then, I thought Billy Squier was sexy with his long hair and tight jeans, and not only was he beautiful, but he could rock out!!
Sure, he has cut his hair, gotten older, and is now wearing glasses, but this album STILL rocks. The album title song, 'Emotions in Motion', the rock anthem, "Everybody Wants you", and the more subtle hit, "She's a runner" all pack in wallop of a punch in the rock and roll ring.
For those fans of 80's hard rock, this is one of the defining albums by one of the most talented musicians of the time. Billy has a great voice, great range, and is also a great guitar player. And even in the early 90's could still wail. I had the great priviledge to see him in concert on the Rock it tonight tour. One of my favorite musicians of all time has written, lyrically and musically. Even though a lot of the songs sound very much alike, I still really like this record. It epitomizes the music of that unforgettable decade -- the 80's.
I still listen to a lot of 80's albums now and this is among my favorites. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Billy Squier's first album, "Tale of the Tape" was largely overlooked although there are actually several gems on there. His second album, "Don't Say No" rocketed him into the limelight, with at least four of its songs seeing significant airplay and even today they are instantly recognizable. That album would have been almost impossible to follow, but "Emotions in Motion" did not disappoint. The lead track "Everybody Wants You" got almost all of the airplay, but several other tracks were also radio staples for awhile.

The album is a good listen from front to back, with nary a mediocre track to be found. I hold it perhaps in higher esteem than others might, simply because it's a part of my life's soundtrack. If you like "Don't Say No", then you won't be disappointed by "Emotions in Motion".

All you have to do is listen to
"In Your Eyes" and "It Keeps You Rockin'" to know why this album is a must-have for any classic rock fan. Forget the fact it came out in the 80's. It's not stereotypical in any way, shape or form whatsoever.

And Billy's voice.......in a word, Wow!

This is a great cd. Catchy songs that rock. This is the follow up to Billy's first cd. Every song is good. This cd is a must have, along with the first cd.

Billy Squier's third LP `Emotions in Motion' at first listen seems to trade on the merits of its predecessor as both records were million sellers that pervaded rock radio for the rest of the `80's. While not as successful as `Don't Say No' from a singles standpoint it could be argued that `Emotions' is the more consistent album. "Everybody Wants You" is easily the most memorable song and was a very strong first single in the summer of '82. The song continues to be a mainstay on classic rock radio and has been used for various TV promos. The title track is also very good but is it just me or is the Billy and Mack relationship a little to derivative of Queen here as the song is an almost blatant rip-off of "Dragon Attack" which appeared on the Mack produced `The Game' LP two years previous. Oh well, still love the song and as far as the Queen thing goes (Billy was good friends with those guys - Freddie and Roger contributed backing vocals) more bands should take stuff from Queen. "Learn How to Live" and "She's a Runner" also were released as singles but other strong cuts include "It Keeps You Rockin'" and "Keeps Me Satisfied". It is hard to believe that `Emotions' was out of print for a while on CD when `Don't Say No' has always seemed to be available but there you go. In many ways `Emotions in Motion' marked the end of a golden era of sorts for Mr. Squier due to what I believe was an awful artistic decision on his next LP but that's another story.

Classic rock at it's finest. Billy has a timeless voice and should still release music. I consider him as one of the best song writers. His hard rock along with melodies are original.
