I had to buy the rest of his music after that.

The reason may be that in this album it seems that he was struggling with the best mix of instrumet arrangement fitting best for his vocal style.

Corey Hart burst onto the MTV music scene with his hit single, "Sunglasses at Night". A few pretty major hits followed after that (Never Surrender, Can't Help Falling, etc.), but anyone who has sampled even a few of his albums can't help but feel that he has been pretty un-recognized and very underrated, given his undeniable talent. This is nothing less than a crime in my opinion.
This first record by Corey Hart contains a number of songs that could easily have been the FM hits that 'Sunglasses at Night' was; maybe it was a good thing that they weren't. Overwhelming success at the tender age of 21 (yes, he was *21* when he made this record!!) might have served only to compromise the quality of his later work.
As it stands, other cuts, like "Peruvian Lady" have the undeniable mark of talent; it is all the more rare, because it is the kind of young and buoyant talent that captured the interest of idol-hungry teenagers but will endure because of its absolute qualities.
Thanks again to Amazon.com for making available a rare CD that deserves to be more available to lovers of great music-- and that's what this CD is chock-full of: Great, great music. I've since lost the original record, but I'm putting the CD in my In-Basket right NOW!

"First Offense", Corey Hart's first album, features some rather diverse musical styles. For instance, there's the synthesizer-rock driven "Sunglasses At Night", the jazzy "Peruvian Lady" and "She Got The Radio" and the melancholic, heart touching ballads, which are Corey's forte, foretold both musically and lyrically in "It Ain't Enough" and "Jenny Fey". There's also a little Latin flavor in the somewhat salsified rhythms of "At The Dance". These are just some of the tracks which make "First Offense" a CD to add to your collection. It's a real shame this is no longer available on EMI as a domestic title, so get it while you still can!

Corey Hart is one of the most popular 80s Canadian rock artists best known by mid 80s hits such as NEVER SURRENDER from "Boy In The Box", SUNGLASSES AT NIGHT and IT AIN'T ENOUGH from this 1983 debut album, and Elvis cover I CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE from his third album "Field of Fire". He and his rival Bryan Adams aptly bridge the gap between UK pop rock and that of American mainstream pop rock.

Although it has two US hits I haven't been impressed this album so much comparing with BOY IN THE BOX and FIELD OF FIRE. The reason may be that in this album it seems that he was struggling with the best mix of instrumet arrangement fitting best for his vocal style. Both Sunglasses at Night and It Ain't Enough are standouts because these songs have brilliant balance with vocal and instrumental part. But when he starts to mix guitar part it doesn't seem to work well. Corey's voice is edgy so when the song uses guitar part it should be used only in solo but his voice works well with keyboard and sax. When you compare the similarly structured songs such as PERUVIAN LADY and EURASEAN EYES from the next album you will see why. Most of the rest of the songs are good but not as strikingly great as aforementioned hits. With the next album BOY IN THE BOX he really shines.

Verdict: Nice album to start the career but with some flaws
Rating: 80 out of 100
Recmmended for: Canadian rock fans, mid 80s pop rock fans.

I have been a Corey Hart (CH)'s fan since I heard "Never Surrender" in the 80s, his big hit from the bestseller album "Boy In The Box". "First Offense" album is reminiscent of "Boy In The Box" in singing style & sound. His voice is however sharper than ever. Solid tracks include "Sunglasses At Night", "Cheatin' In School", "At The Dance" , and "Jenny Fey". If you like "Boy In The Box", you 'll enjoy this one & much more. CH is consistent in delivering good music in this earlier debut release! A highly recommended reading!

I loved his music that was played when he first debuted, but I never bought any. Then I picked up a couple of his albums at a pawn shop and was hooked. I had to buy the rest of his music after that. This first album is the last that I've purchased and he has never disappointed.

Corey Hart is a singer, songwriter, lyricist, multiple instrument playing phenomenon IMO. His music is complex and simple at the same time. He's so much more than his wearing of sunglasses at night, but he does that exceptionally well too.

First Offence is the first album recorded by Corey Hart. He had been writing songs however since he was 13 years old. Some of these have been used on the album.He sings about the high school dance on "At the Dance",even though he recorded this album at 22 years old.Still its good to hear his early writings. First Offence blends pop with a rock edge. Highlights are Peruvian Lady,Lamp at midnite,Shes got the radio and the hit single Sunglasses At Night which is an extended version.This album is very enjoyable bubblegum pop but not his best work.That came later!

Other reviewers below, what can I say? , some people thought the Beatles sucked too when I was growing up.

If you can have only one Corey Hart Album, this is it! One of the few I have loved every cut on it, and thought fit in with the rest. He had several other "good" albums, but none like this one. Get it if you don't have it, or were too young to have been exposed to the best of the early 80's.
