Customer Reviews

One of the best selling rock and roll albums of all time.

This album is just over 30 mins, Every song really moves, except the very last one, which is great to work out to, and then to cool down to.
Brian
I listen to this album regularly 20 years after its release and still find it a great listen from start to finish.

"Hi Infidelity" is the quintessential album from REO Speedwagon. This marked the zenith for the band, topping the charts for 15 weeks in 1981 and containing four top 40 singles.
"Keep On Loving You" was the consummate radio friendly power ballad (it was their first #1 song on the charts). It served as a precursor for their mainstream sound that was to follow them into the early half of the decade (They would top the charts one more time in 1984 with "Can't Fight This Feeling" from "Wheels Are Turning" album). In 2000, they assembled a collection of their greatest ballads.
The band had been recording for about a decade when they reached the masses with this album. This album has it share of upbeat rockers. The album opens with the hard driving, "Don't Let Him Go" (#36) as well as the top five "Take It On The Run.(#5)" The track, "In Your Letter" has a retro 1950's feel to it. It also made the pop charts at the time (#14).
"Tough Guys" is one of the most relentless tracks on the album. It rocks from start to finish and interestingly enough, begins with a vocal segment from the television program, "The Little Rascals." (Madonna would employ this technique in her song "White Heat," which included a spoken prologue from James Cagney in her tribute to him on her 1986 album "True Blue.")
"Follow My Heart," "Out Of Season," and "Someone Tonight" also serve as competent, well-crafted tunes. The one track I tend to not enjoy as much is "Shakin' It Loose."(Don't get me wrong-it is not a bad track; it just sounds too generic. It could have been recorded by Styx or Journey or 38 Special!).

As the title says, I haven't listened to Disc 2 yet. First, I don't have $5000 equipment, so audiophiles with that budget, cut me some slack. I did an A/B with Disc 1 in the car changer and was VERY surprised. And the comparison was with the Gold Sony CD version from the mid 90s (which I did prefer to the 2000 remaster, and that one also sounds good, don't get me wrong). I also then compared these same two versions at home through Sony MDR-7506 headphones.

I know about the "Loudness Wars". I expect this when I buy any remaster now. This disc sounds crisp and detailed. If you're skeptical about the sound of this, go ahead and buy it, especially since it's pretty much budget priced (although both discs add up to about 69 minutes, so yeah, it all could fit onto one CD).

This is not an "In Your Face" loud CD that would just sound like prior versions at equal volume. You'll notice it with the drums immediately on "Don't Let Him Go". You'll notice it immediately with the piano intro to "Keep On Loving You" (and whatever that "ding" thing is. It's some percussion instrument, I don't know, a chime?). You get the idea. I could go on with the other eight tracks. I'll just leave it to you to hear the clarity on the other two hits--we all know "Take It on the Run", but let's not forget "In Your Letter"--as well as the rest of the album. I think they did a great job on this remaster and I'm confident that if you're a fan of this album, it will make you smile as though you're hearing it again for the first time. And this doesn't even take into account that second disc! Enjoy!

I don't know what that "GAG" reviewer from SF was choking on (or smoking perhaps) in the negative review for this album, but I am in total disagreement. Clearly that person isn't a fan and was offering little in the way of an actual review, just wanted to rip on REO here. And for all the freakin' "real" critics who think music has to have some deep message to be good, give me a break! Sometimes we just want to be entertained and sing along. I listen to this album regularly 20 years after its release and still find it a great listen from start to finish.
Literally every song could have been released as a single and done well. Nice variance of upbeat rock oriented songs like "Tough Guys" and "Out of Season" to go along with the hits "Keep On Loving You" and "Take It On The Run". "In Your Letter", "Follow My Heart" and "I Wish You Were There" are also standout cuts.
An absolutely classic Pop/Rock album from the 80's that remains in my all time top 5 to this day.

LOVED this album for 30 years now, and the remastering is done as well as any that I have heard. The reason to buy this set (assuming that you already have a copy of Hi Infidelity) is for the second disc. It's not often that you get to hear how an album gets it start. The Crystal demos show it all off. While the sound level doesn't seem to be as high as the regular album, it is really cool to hear the songs as they were being worked out by the band. To all you budding lead guitarists, put the instrumental version of "Shakin' it Loose" on, grab your Les Paul and play your own licks along with the boys!

There are some new comments about the album by Kevin Cronin and Gary Richrath - I wish Gary could have or would have written more, but it is nice to see that he was invited to have a little input on this product!
