5.0 out of 5 stars A product of its time, but an album for the Ages. September 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you think you've never listened to Richard Marx before, you have, but probably didn't know it! Marx wrote many songs (#1's Crazy, What About Me, etc...) and sang background vocals for so many big artists (Madonna, Lionel Richie, Kenny Rogers, Barbra Streisand, etc...) before this album, that his musical resume would have been considered impressive even if he never began his solo career. But thank God that Manhattan Records gave him a shot! "Richard Marx" impresses in so many ways: do you like rock? How about "Don't Mean Nothing" with the Eagles' Joe Walsh on guitar, or try the blistering cry of "Have Mercy". You say you like pop? Try the bouncy "Lonely Heart" or "Rhythm of Life". Oh, you like ballads. Richard Marx is the Balladeer of All Time - try his first solo #1 hit "Hold On To The Nights". Like soul? Try "Flame of Love". Looking for some introspection? Illuminate yourself with "Heaven Only Knows". Of course, I haven't mentioned the catchy, medium-rocker "Should've Known Better", or the saxy-sound of "Endless Summer Nights" - both of which made the Bilboard Top Five. Although this album does have the sound of the late 1980's (released in 1987), it is an album for the Ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bouncy Debut From Marx March 3, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Richard Marx exploded onto the music scene with this self titled debut album in 1987. It was a time when music was getting bombarded with other 'pop' fare like Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, and New Kids On The Block. Unfairly, Richard was thrown into the same category as them. He didn't belong. Marx was so much more than those artists, not to mention older. He wrote his own songs and played instruments. He had four big hits here with "Don't Mean Nothing", which is incredibly catchy, "Should've Known Better", "Endless Summer Nights", and "Hold Onto The Nights". All four songs made the top five, with the latter going to number 1. The rest is a bunch of pretty good up - tempo songs. The best of the rest were "Have Mercy", about as catchy as late 80's pop could get, and "I Remember Manhattan", which had another great pop beat. "Rhythm Of Life" is a sure fire toe tapper that will make you dance. "Flame Of Love" and "Lonely Heart" are the only ones here that don't really cut it. They are as stale as their titles. Still, this is an impressive debut, with richly constructed pop tunes. Marx is a true craftsman, and as his later 90's albums prove, only gets better with age. Get this CD!.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his BEST! August 17, 2005
By Sandi
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just bought this cd because I heard the song "Endless Summer Nights" in a movie and remembered what a great song it was and how much I LOVED this cd (Which of course I had on cassette).

Also I thought that these facts were interesting:
- Over 30 million records sold
- Writer of Eleven #1 songs
- Nineteen Top 20 Singles as an Artist, including SEVEN #1 HITS
- 2004 Grammy Song of the Year Winner, with Luther Vandross, for "Dance With My Father"

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful, inspiring, and thought-provoking December 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I remember being at Buster's a few months back and hearing the bar band's cover of "Right Here Waiting." I wanted to find out who sang the song so I did a search on Google. Found out that a "Richard Marx" sang the song. So, I picked up "Repeat Offender" and "Rush Street" in a two pack. Little did I know that I was in for a treat.

For a debut album it was awesome...though Bob Dylan is my favorite musical artist ever, not even he did as well during his first album. Songs like "Endless Summer Nights," "Have Mercy" and "Heaven Only Knows" are absolute gemstones. Though "Right Here Waiting" is my absolute favorite Richard Marx song, there are plenty of gems right here. Completely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great debut album! June 22, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Richard Marx album I have ever bought. He's a great singer---just starting out!!! I hope he gets better as he progresses!!! Another song I like on here that was never a single (correct me if I'm wrong here) is "Heaven Only Knows"--just sends chills up my spine. Beautiful!
A must-have for any Richard Marx fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great debut from a very talented artist June 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This stuff is very good. You can feel the sincerety in the album. Every piece right from the rock ballads to the fast paced tracks stand out beautifully. This is an album that people will look back upon in time gone by as proof that good music, without any comparision, is like good wine and will only get better as the years go by.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twenty-two years on - still sounds great January 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I had a lot of respect for Richard Marx when this album was first released, but after reading more about his career a bit more in-depth recently, I have MUCH more respect for him. He worked very hard to even get a demo heard and he had a storied career before recording it - singing backup for lots of then-popular singers and writing great pop tunes.

I enjoy the majority of this album (there are a few pieces of cheese in here) all these years later and was glad to put a copy of it back into my collection as an actual album (good ol' vinyl). I enjoy Marx's songwriting ability and his voice is very soothing, very romantic.

He deserves all the good fortune he's had in the music business. - Donna Di Giacomo
