Format: Audio CD
Go on..was the Misters third and final commercial release and one with a more stripped down and mature sound than the intense Welcome To The Real World. Maybe the world wasn't quite ready for them to change so quickly having just reached their commercial height, or the more thoughtful style was too out of step with the hair metal pap that so dominated 1987, but whatever caused its lack of success it wasn't due to the album. The song writing is exemplary, the vocals better than ever, the variety much improved over the previous albums and the production left enough room for Steve Farris to really show people how he can play the guitar!

I would urge anyone that has an ounce of musicality and an interest in what GOOD AOR can sound like to purchase this album. The sad fact is that this shouldn't have been the last album. Although Steve Farris left before the tour, and was replaced by Buzz Feiten, the Misters actually recorded a fourth album "Pull" which can be found floating in the grey areas of cyberspace. It really is worth a download if you can find it. Many have claimed it was too experimental but only one track, "Buddy" really falls into that category. The remainder was stunning. "Waiting In My Dreams" can be found on "The Best Of..." but "Close Your Eyes" and "Wait A Lifetime" could easily have replicated the success of "Kyrie". It also features Trevor Rabin of Yes on some tracks, giving it a sound not disimilar to "Talk" by that band.

I don't know why, but I love Mr. Mister's music. I love "Go On..." because it is a work of musical perfection. Which is what one might expect of session musicians. Unfortunately RCA have deemed this record as unworthy of remaining in print, which now only prints a "Best of" and "Welcome to the Real World." I would proclaim that "Go On..." is the better of the three albums they released. It may not have been as sucessful as Welcome to the Real World, but in musical composition, this album was far more advanced and deserves more recognition.

Mr. Mister, for reasons unknown to the world, decided to abandon the uplifting 80s pop sound that the World had come to expect from them, and even though they had the lineup of an 80s pop band, they somehow managed to elevate synth to an instrument that could produce a serious sound. The album travels down a much funkier road than that of it's predecessors. It also sees Richard Page using his chords to their best advantage. This seems strange because they always seemed so amazing on the other records. How could they be better? If you find a way of acquiring this CD if purchased you'll understand what I mean.

Tracklist:

1. Stand and Deliver

2. Healing Waters

3. Dust

4. Something Real (Inside Me/Inside You)

5. The Tube

6. Bare My Soul

7. Control

8. Watching the World

9. Power Over Me

10. Man of a Thousand Dances

11. The Border

The superior tracks in my opinion are Healing Waters, Dust, Something Real (Inside Me/Inside You), The Tube, Bare My Soul, Power Over Me, Man of a Thousand Dances, and of course The Border.

Healing Waters is a spiritual masterpiece which employs the use of a Gospel Choir.

"Go On" has LONG been a favorite album of mine, and to this day, I continually play it like an 8-track in my car whenever I drive! Their compositions are musically rich, and lyrically pensive and sensitive. I'm a HUGE fan of Mr. Mister & have been since their conception (even when previously Pages, consisting of R. Page and S. George.) I was lucky enough to have the privilege to not only see them in concert 3 times in the 80s, but UP CLOSE-FRONT ROW at "The Palace" in Hollywood, CA, not once, but twice, where I was able to shake Richard's hand, and get his autograph, along with that of Mastelotto & George (Farris,... where were you?! - lol). As if that weren't exciting enough, I was also able to get their photographs! These 4 men are INCREDIBLY talented, & they just blow me away every time I listen to their music. I could listen forever!

(Now for my "review" ) lol :D

You can tell a LOT of work, skill, & detailed thought went into producing these tracks - they're multi-layered, rich & refined, subtly (at times overtly) visceral, and brought to a high polish that flows together more smoothly than running honey. The backdrop of every composition is like a mural of interactive "water colors" created by S. George's amazing "liquid-legato" sophisticated chords & progressions (a Stevie Wonder's early 70s jazz feel, only with more reserved nuance), combined with S. Farris' exceptional guitar work. Farris' style is unlike any other I've heard coming from the "screaming guitar school of thought", i.e. pleasingly a-typical, in that he reaches far deeper emotionally in his choice of chords, dynamics, & delivery.

Format: Audio CD
...because I thought this album was one of the best of the entire decade, and nobody bought it. At least on Amazon, I can see that at least 6 other people revere it the way I do. The progression from its highly successful - and highly trendy - predecessor, 1985's Welcome To The Real World, was absolutely stunning. The cover art set the tone for a huge change, and the music, both lyrically and sonically, confirmed it. To my knowledge, "Dust" is the only song written as a plea to American soldiers to reach out to children they may have fathered during wartime. I still get chills when I hear "Out of the dust reach tiny hands/to touch their fathers in other lands." While the sound does have a heavy dose of 80's synth sound, Mr. Mister uses that sound as well as anyone did, and songs like the aforementioned "Dust", the stark "Bare My Soul", the thoroughly underrated single "Something Real" and "Watching The World", all deliver a sound that still sounds fresh. "The Border" is definitely one of popular music's lost songs - I think that it's the band's best song, a gorgeous midtempo ballad that subtly recalls the crossroads - indicating we must persevere and "go on", but the chorus says to us "I am standing here/my arms open wide/I am waiting here/heart in my hand on the border." Considering that the band largely disappeared after this album, the distant horizon depicted on the cover along with the final song's desire to wait and persevere seems a fitting epitaph for a band that disappeared from the public's eye far, far, far too soon.
