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 Richard Marx: Richard Marx (1987) February 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Richard Marx is one of the most talented male solo acts around. As far as I'm concerned, he should've been another one of this world's Icons, but unfortunately a lot people decided not to give Richard Marx too much of the recognition he more than well deserved. But his loyal fans, including myself, look at him as an Icon and he forever will be an Icon in our eyes, especially when it comes down to this album, his first in the whole series. Released in 1987 and simply entitled, RICHARD MARX, this album offers nothing, but the best of first impressions to all of us: his loyal fans.

The second single from the album. This is one hell of a song. Definitely a song that cannot get enough of.

The first single from the album. Ahhh, there is nothing like the sound of the first single ever released by Richard. This is another Richard Marx song that no Richard Marx fan can mistake. Classic.

The fourth & final single from the album. This is an amazing up-tempo ballad. One hell of a great song. Richard had said that this was a #2 hit back in 1988. He had said that the song that beat him out at having it go to #1 was Michael Jackson, with his song, Man In The Mirror. Now, I do like Michael Jackson's song, Man In The Mirror, but Richard Marx was a new artist between 1987 and 1988, so this song deserved to put Man In The Mirror to the #2 spot.

What a frigging song! The beat to this one is incredible, the sound of the music is unbelievable, and Richard's voice is amazing.

The third single from the album and Richard's first #1 hit single.
