5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! June 9, 2005
By Gitters
Format:Audio CD
Loverboy's self titled debut album is one of the strongest debut albums that I have ever heard. I have to rank it up there with "Boston" and "The Cars" debut albums. The Kid is Hot Tonite gets things going, an excellent rocker to open the album with. Then the big hit Turn Me Loose is on. The whole first half is flawless, really the whole album is flawless. Although you may only know The Kid is Hot Tonite and Turn Me Loose from the radio, other songs like Always on My Mind, Lady of the 80s, Little Girl, Prissy Prissy, Teenage Overdose,DOA, and It Don't Matter are just as strong. This is where you should start your Loverboy collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice debut out of Canada. July 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Loverboy's self titled debut from 1980 is a lot better than some of the critics would try to have you believe. The lyrics, the writing of the songs, the singing, and the playing of the instruments are all quite skilled. To this very day, I have never understood why the critics have been so hard on this group.
Three of the songs here have lyrics along the lines of, "Be careful, because actions have consequences." Those songs are "The Kid is Hot Tonight," "Teenage Overdose," and "D.O.A." You'd think that such a message would get praise from critics and parents groups, but yet it hasn't. I wonder why that is.
My personal favorite here is "Turn Me Loose." For some reason, the MTV video of that song cut off the beginning and the end, resulting in a relatively weak, watered down version of the song. Fortunately, this CD has the full length version. At nearly 6 minutes, it packs quite a punch!
Some of my other favorites here are "The Kid is Hot Tonight," "Lady of the 80s," "Little Girl," and "It Don't Matter." "Little Girl" would have made a great single for radio airplay, and I wonder why it was never released. "It Don't Matter" has some excellent saxaphone playing.
Well, the critics never really caught on to Loverboy. But the fans did, and that's what counts. In my opinion, this album, and Loverboy's second album, "Get Lucky," are their two best works. Their third and fourth albums, "Keep It Up" and "Lovin' Every Minute Of It," are also worth owning, but for some reason, those two are both out of print. Good thing for me that I already own them on CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Loverboy is "Turned Loose" in 1980!!! September 15, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Loverboy is probably one of the most underrated groups of the 80's, and they deserve a lot more recognition for their talent, and excellent musicianship. Although Loverboy's 1980 self-titled pop-rock debut is not my favorite, it is still a fun album to listen to. It comes complete with keyboard-drenched melodies from Doug Johnson, a powerful, flawless bass from the late great Scott Smith, catchy thumping beats from Matt Frenette, perfect guitar craftsmanship from Paul Dean and the notorious intense vocals from Mike Reno. This album really defines what much of the music was like back in the early 80's. With this album, you are given the license to party and have a good time. That is what Loverboy was all about during this time.

The album is kicked off with two of their biggest hits; "The Kid Is Hot Tonight" and "Turn Me Loose." I prefer the smooth, soaring, melodic perfection of Johnson's keyboard, Frenette's uncanny shuffling beat, Smith's thick groovy bass and Reno's demanding vocals in "Turn Me Loose." The song is my favorite from this album. "The Kid Is Hot Tonight," is a good one too; very catchy beats and swirling keyboards. It's a bit faster-paced and makes you want to get up and dance.

Also listen to Johnson's magic on the groovin', "Prissy Prissy," and "DOA." I always thought the piano chords on "Prissy Prissy" was a nice touch. It's a song about a girl who is too prissy for words who thinks she's too good for the guys. This is another smooth song that you can tap your feet to. "DOA" shows off Johnson's melodic sounds mixed with intensity from Dean's edgy guitar. It's one of Loverboy's more serious songs, but very enjoyable to listen to. It is one of my favorites from this album.

This is a typical conversation when this album's playing:

"Who's this?"


"Loverboy? You mean the guy in the headband, the ones who do 'Working For The Weekend'?"

"Yeah, this is the first album."

"Wow. I didn't know--wait a second, I know this song! This song rocks! I didn't know Loverboy did this song!"

The song in question is "Turn Me Loose," which in the (dear God, has it been that long?) 27 years since its release has turned into a veritable eighties anthem ... and it's usually the one song that people who hate Loverboy like. This album is also a reminder that before they became arena rock darlings, Loverboy was marketed as a new wave band. If you're used to "Working For The Weekend" a lot of this record will surprise you. From the synth-heavy doomed-to-be-dated "Lady of the 80s" (which they still do in concert much to my amusement) and "Prissy Prissy" to the hard stomp of "Teenage Overdose" to the Cars-like "D.O.A." and "The Kid Is Hot Tonite", "Loverboy" is a pretty good view of what power pop was like in 1980. It's a solid debut and still sounds pretty good on the iPod, so buy with confidence.

4.0 out of 5 stars always like the throw back music from the 80's
always like the throw back music from the 80's. This was a stalking stuffer for my wife. I believe she converted it to MP3 and listens to it frequently.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps Loverboy's Best
It's tough; this and Get Lucky are close. There are some real gems on this one--style not found on their second, more commercially successful LP. Great stuff!
