Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1985 album from the Irish Hard Rock band. This power trio, comprising brothers Pat, John and Tommy McManus, hailed from Northern Ireland. Mama's Boys came along at the tail end of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal explosion and enjoyed considerable success riding on the crest of that wave. Nine tracks. BGO. 2009.

The songs are okay, and the sound is, well... hair metal.

Finally after all these long years of waiting, the second official record of the boys form Ireland, the legendary Mc Manus Brothers, have seen the light on cd. Rare editions, and prices as high as 200 dollars on internet sites reveal how great it was and the status of cult favorite. Great riffs, great choruses, anhthemic harmonies, and heavy and melodic all the same.

Released originally on 1985, here is the rating and commentary track by track

1.- Hard N'Loud.- Just as the title says!! a melodic masterpiece.10

2.- Straight Forward No Looking Back.- A powerful and rhytmic version of this group classic, also contained on the first record. 9

3.- Lettin Go.- Pipes, violins, groovy lyrics, celtic rhytms, what else do you want? 10

4.- Needle In The Groove.- Mid tempo, slowy, catchy. 8

5.- Run.- The crown jewel. Everything hard rock was supposed to be!! cheers 10

6.- Power and Passion.- The Title track, good riffs, energetic chorus, 9

7.- Don't Tell Mama.- Keyboards,riffs, dancy 9

8.- The Professor II.- The instrumental, jazzy, the curiosity 7.5

9.- Let's Get High.- With influence of Thin Lizzy, it leaves you with desire of enjoy more of this talented band. 10

Now let's hope that the first st record is remasterd on cd!!

I picked this album up in the 80's in Spain and maybe listened to it twice and shelved it until 2009 when I burned it to CD.

When I heard the first song, the first thing I thought of was Def Leppard. As the album progressed, it was apparent this is hair metal, though the boys don't look the part. At times, I was also reminded of Picture's Every Story Needs Another Picture.

Almost every song is heavy on vocals, has that hair metal snare drum sound, and an anthemic feel. There is nothing wrong with that, except the song I found the most appealing is The Professor II, which is an instrumental.

I'm really surprised they didn't get bigger. Then again, if anyone else got the same impression I did, they might have dismissed them as a Def Leppard clone. Maybe it's just me.

Anyway, despite what my ranting may suggest, this is good music, top notch musicianship, and excellent vocals. The songs are okay, and the sound is, well... hair metal. If you like that musical genre, you have to check this album out. I think it stands above the crowd. Recommended.

Originally released in 1985, Power and Passion was the third album from Irish rockers Mama's Boys. The band - made up of three McManus brothers - played a catchy, but hard-hitting brand of melodic rock along the lines of early Def Leppard.

Power and Passion seems like an album written for mainstream rock radio. It's very polished, has a slick production, and is essentially one catchy AOR-style rocker after another. It's fun enough, but lacking some of the grit of the band's earlier efforts. There are some really good songs here though, especially the party anthems "Hard n' Loud" and "Don't Tell Mama."

It's more than a little dated now, but Power and Passion is still a totally enjoyable melodic rock album. Fans of the more commercially-oriented British rock and metal bands in the mid `80s (think Def Leppard, Heavy Pettin', Tobruk and Lionheart) should definitely give it a try.

Edition Notes: BGO Records reissued Power and Passion in 2009. The reissue doesn't have any bonus material, but the album has been remastered, which is a plus.

Over the years I had only heard Mama's Boys cover of "Mama Weer All Crazee Now" by Slade which Quiet Riot also covered around the same time but I never really thought much of them as their cover didn't do it for me, but recently I've properly discovered Mama's Boys and am really glad I did now knowing what an awesome and legendary Irish band they are!
They made abit of a dent in the 80's metal scene back in the day with this "Power N Passion" album cracking the US top 100 back in 1985. These guys are nowhere in the same league as Ratt or Bon Jovi but they have some really good anthemic songs and as a power trio you gotta give them some cred for playing solid balls out rock n roll!

The stand out track for me is definitely the self-titled "Power N Passion" but "Lettin' Go" and "Neddle In The Groove" are also classics and must have went down a treat live. The drumming is really good and dynamic and the guitar solo's are rippin' with John handling the vocal duties really well!

I would give this album 5 stars but the only thing that lets me down slightly here is the dated production...I know it came out in 85 but it dosent hold up well compared to others from the same genre. I love the whole slick 80's glossy production but it's been re-mastered and still lacks abit of punch and kick but once you get it up loud it's algood.
Legendary band...get this if you love loud melodic rock n roll!
