Product Description

Including such radio fixtures as Lovin' Every Minute of It; This Could Be the Night; Hot Girls in Love; Working for the Weekend; Heaven in Your Eyes , and more.

Usurping the Big Ones hits package, the self-depreciating, proud, and humorous liner notes by bassist Scott Smith boost this definitive compilation. Time won't have wiped the kneejerk sneer from the mouths of critics--dismissed long ago as "eunuchs in a whorehouse" by manager Lou Blair--but a new generation of listeners will approve. --Jeff Bateman

Loverboy Classics(1994). One of many different single-disc Loverboy compilations.
The early 80s were a huge time for radio bands. With the start of MTV and new wave music, any band that could craft a catchy pop rock tune was almost guarenteed to be a staple on the radio during that time. Loverboy were experts on the genre. Coming from Vancouver Canada, Loverboy took the world by storm with their breakthrough album Big Ones(1981) and unleashed their signature smash hit 'Working For The Weekend'. Their career instantly took off and the band managed to score many hits throughout the first half of the decade. Come the later half of the 80s, the band's popularity died down, and since Loverboy thrived on their "hit" songs, they were gone by 1989.
The general consensus I've gathered from people is that you either like Loverboy or hate them. Thankfully, I fall into the "like" category. To me, Loverboy was one of the first bands that got me into rock 'n roll music, so for that I thank them. It also never hurt that their popular songs were incredibly catchy and well-crafted for the time. These guys were generally considered a pop-rock band, though not quite the light-weight pop that new wave music was. More along the lines of Eddie Money and Bryan Adams. Their songwriting style is actually done well, and not in a cheesy manner. There's really not much originality to the music, but the band does write most of the material and they know how to play it well, so I don't really mind at all. Loverboy's music was all about the good times of rock 'n roll, and it continued to be until the eventual downfall of the band late in the 80s.
Now let's look at this compilation.

This is one of the very few Best Of compilations that actually lives up to its name. It's also one of the very few that I usually play all the way through, from beginning to end. Every song is an '80's gem. Loverboy might have been dismissed by some critics as fluff, but their music was very diverse and showed excellent musicianship, even complex, with quick time changes in some of their songs. Unlike most hard-rock bands of their time, Loverboy had four distinct styles: Pop ("Hot Girls In Love"), Ballad ("Destination Heartbreak"), Heavy Metal ("The Kid Is Hot Tonite," "Working For The Weekend," and "Notorious"), and Funk ("Turn Me Loose", "Lucky Ones", and "When It's Over"). Some of these songs combine funk with hard rock, like "Take Me To The Top." Loverboy are so diverse that you can play this whole CD through and not get tired of their music.
For those whose have seen my other recent reviews, you may notice that I DO NOT give out 5 stars easily to any record. Please note this fact and take my advice seriously: This IS a 5 star record, all the way through!! If you love great diverse rock 'n' roll mixed with tasty servings of funk, then buy this CD. It will take you to the top!! :)

Think about it. Loverboy is a band that doesn't exactly fit the stale arena rock mold because of their sheer propensity for fun. But then again, their quasi-proggy keyboards don't exactly translate into the hairspray crowd's standard repetoire. As such, I think purchasing this compilation can not only lead to the acquisition of one heck of a party album, but it can also serve as an anthropological study.

Ugh, that sounds pretentious, but it's worth pondering.

Anyhoo, the tracks here are all, for the most part, superb pieces of 80s pop rock. "Working for the Weekend" and "Turn Me Loose" are the obvious highlights, but the collection is laden with highlights. In fact, every song is a 4 to 5 star track in its own right. Well, except for the ponderous "Lovin' Every Minute of It." That one's just dull. Everything else is a blast, though. The best thing is that the songs are peppered with a most amusing kind of synth workouts that just accentuate the goodness of the material. Fantastic.

Overall, fans of music from Kansas to Poison will enjoy this. This is upbeat music to celebrate the good times in a rockin' manner, but it's also got a pseudo-intelligent gloss over it. Great stuff, and a definite value. Buy it today!

Ok, first, I don't like "Working For the Weekend." Just don't. Overplayed. And I hate how, if I do hear it on the radio, it sticks in my brain all day long. Evil, malicious hook.

And yeah, they weren't musical geniuses. And I can't decide if a headband was worse than a mullet. (A headband AND a mullet would make someones head just plain explode, I think.) But I don't think Loverboy SUBTRACTED anything from music in general, like, say, Michael Bolton would SUBTRACT from someones musical knowledge if they actually thought that his screamed version of "When A Man Loves A Woman" was a good example of soul music. THAT I would give just one star, for instance. Make that a negative one. Loverboy, I think, did no harm. Harmless fun. Like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, even if it is generic peanut butter on white bread. In moderate doses, it won't hurt you, or stunt your growth. And it tastes just as good at 40 years old as it did when you were a kid.

The sounds of pop music from your youth can transport you to another time, to a time before divorce, foreclosure, bad knees, deaths of friends and parents, REAL work, and not working for the weekend but working to stay ALIVE and support children and pay bills. Before mass shootings in schools. Back when Michael Jackson was black, and alive. Back when there were two twin towers in NYC, and before anyone had permanently seared in their memory the sights of people jumping from burning skyscrapers.

When I first heard Loverboy I was embarking on the great adventure of leaving home and starting my 4 year stint with the US Army. One great thing about the Army was being exposed to a lot of new music as there were 8 of us living in one room from all over the country, white, black, every color, every kind of background.
