2.0 out of 5 stars Cold for this "Orient" June 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
1980 was a banner year for classic albums,with Cold Chisel's EAST,Split Enz's TRUE COLOURS and Australian Crawl's BOYS LIGHT UP.Unfortunately,it was a terrible year for Skyhooks.Having lost their charismatic frontman Graeme "Shirley" Strachan the year previously,the rest of the band decided to appoint a new singer,Tony Williams.Armed with a bunch of sparkly new songs and the producer of their previous album,GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INSANE (American producer Eddie Leonetti),they trooped into the studio with high hopes.These hopes were soon dashed when Leonetti,hoping to capture a slice of the American market,rejected a majority of songwriter Greg Macainsh's gems(on the grounds that the songs were too Australian flavoured) and demanded he write more.The results were rushed,and half-hearted at best.HOT FOR THE ORIENT is an album by a band struggling with a new lineup that the public simply did not take to.Only NO INSPIRATION,THIS TOWN IS BORING and KEEP THE JUNK IN AMERICA(if Leonetti wanted U.S. success,why release this track?) show any of the old Skyhooks' wit and power.Mercifully,Skyhooks broke up later in the year.If you are a novice Skyhooks listener ,ignore HOT FOR THE ORIENT . . .you'll thank me later!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money! February 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Apart from Border and Boring, Tony Williams was given dreck to work with by Macca and Bongo. It shocked a forum in Oz when I revealed the price on this item! If you want primo Hooks, consider getting the Collection, as the unreleased stuff like Powdertown is FAR superior, and it puzzles me to this day why the LP was not released in the early 90s while Shirl was still living, Always given an answer to the effect of " the Daddy Cool dual tour was cancelled"!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Hot and disappointed January 16, 2013
Format:Audio CD
You have know idea how much trouble I had tracking this Lp down when it first came out! The only thing I knew about it was it was a Skyhooks record I didn't have!!!! Well I can't tell you what a cosmic joke...worked and paid to get THE worst Skyhooks Lp there ever was!! Different singer and ultra Americanized IE watered down. As far as SKYHOOKS releases Stick to the first three..oh and try to stay away from the american versions of these because they have several missing songs then the australian releases Amazon's got 'em. Good Day Mate!
