5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL News can be found in this alblum May 15, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Huey and the boys should be in the Hall of Fame (Cleveland, are you listening?), and this raw, harmony-filled alblum showcases their unique sound better than anything else I've heard (yes, even "Sports"). I have all their alblums -- both on vinyl and CDs -- and, as a Bay Area son who watched them move like the Temptations while ringing out the tunes from this debut, trust me on this one: it doesn't get better than this. "Some of My Lies Are True" is the first song I ever heard on the radio by this group and I immediately fell in love with its hip sound. The song "Hearts" is one of their best ever. If you're a Huey fan who started tuning in with "Do You Believe in Love," you have no idea what you're missing by not having this alblum in your collection. What's great about this self-titled work is it still sounds of fresh today... How many artists or alblums can you say that about?

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, sweet and full o' meat! December 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Forget all the silly, over-produced MTV videos and the played-to-death hits from the super-slick "Sports" album. This straight-ahead collection of infectious 3-minute pub-rock and power-pop gems represents everything that was good about the early "New Wave" scene. Huey Lewis & The News debut has a loose, "live" feel that captures the spirit of the days when they were one of the most popular (and hardest working) bar bands in the Bay Area. Huey's previous British connections (through his work with the band Clover) paid off handsomely, as Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds give some production help on this album (by the way-that's Huey's harmonica solo on Dave Edumunds' original version of "Bad Is Bad", which the News covered some years later!). It would be interesting to find out some day why this has been inexplicably unavailable as a domestic U.S. CD release...especially given the commercial success of this band. For a prime example of "true" New Wave (before the marketing boys and record execs got hold of it) give this one a listen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Self titled debut October 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If just starting a Huey Lewis and the News CD collection, this is not the one to start with. However, if you are already a fan it is a must have. This album, originally released in 1980, was recorded in a very short time and has a very raw sound as a result. Not many bells and whistles, just straight ahead "garage style" rock and roll.
But in the midst of this first effort are some diamonds in the rough. The lead off song, Some of My Lies are True, made it on the track list of an oversees Greatest Hits release. And the song Trouble in Paradise was later featured on the USA for Africa benefit album.
For the average fan this is not what I would recommend as a starting point for Huey Lewis and the News music. But it is a noteworthy album for anyone with a deeper interest in this band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best News July 29, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Had to add my two cents here, Huey & the News produced a lot of memorable pop records but it is this one, the first one, that is the genuine classic. A great mix of new wave and r&b and it rocks.

4.0 out of 5 stars The start of an era February 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Some may say that this album doesn't fully reveal the true depth of Huey Lewis and the News. I believe exactly the opposite. On this debut recording, you can hear every component of what made Huey and the boys one of the hottest bands in the 80's. The awesome vocal harmonies are all there. The fast-paced, pure rock 'n' roll backbeats are alive and kickin'. If you are a fan of this band, this album is a must have. It's essential for anyone who wants to see how much this band developed their sound. That is not to say that these songs are inferior. Personally, I enjoy this album more than "Sports," the band's first big commercial success. Huey Lewis and the News delivers raw talent in a wild and active bundle of music.

4.0 out of 5 stars News' Debut April 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Huey Lewis & The News' self titled debut album is a solid, workman like effort that laid down the blueprint that the band would follow to the top of the charts in the mid 80's. The album is full of no nonsense songs that have a rock, r&b and pop mixture with perfect harmonies. The album isn't as polished as their later efforts, but Mr. Lewis' appealing vocals and the band's loose and enthusiastic playing makes this a fun effort. "Trouble in Paradise" is the most famous song from the album (thanks to a live version that appeared on the We Are The World album) and is great songs as are "Some Of My Lies Are True", "Hearts", "Stop Trying" and "Who Cares".

4.0 out of 5 stars In the beginning July 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
We were lucky enough to see Huey and the News starting out in the Bay Area. This is a little raw, but what they sounded like. Their live shows had so much energy, and even though the record sounds much like the live show, it cannot capture the intensity and drive Huey and the band brought to the stage. My favorite memories of the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Catchy Beginning February 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Got to give the guy credit: Huey Lewis was no overnight sensation. Not only did they not gain major success too quickly but their debut album only arrived after Huey himself had been travelling around the country,overseas and playing in a jazz-funk oriented group-honing his craft and playing where he could along the way. He did pay some important and long dues for what came. And that being said even when this came out,the News didn't make close to the same sort of splash that say The Pretenders did with their debut. I don't even think this album contained any of the big hit songs they'd become known for. But Huey Lewis & The News were not only about hits. They were about a certain style of pop/rock they did. It was based in something for sure but all the same it was very distinctive I'm not sure if this debut album said that very fully however.

In a post disco era commercial defined by power pop and such,that's basically what this album is. The mildly punky cover art is not ironic. "Some Of My Lies Are True","If You Really Love Me You'll Tell Me","Stop Trying" and "Hearts" do owe a lot of their sound to new wave style rock more than the bands more trademark sound. But let's just say that was still under construction. "Now Here's You" and "Trouble In Paradise" are my two favorite songs here. And in my own opinion the strongest numbers here. The reason is that they have that professionally produced rock n soul style sound they'd become known for while maintaining their freshness and enthusiasm through the strong vocal harmonies and sax solos that would soon become the backbone of their sound. "Who Cares" applies that same quality to a more new wavish type tune,with some almost...fusion style guitar solos that make it mildly abstract to a degree.
