5.0 out of 5 stars Rick's Finest Hour January 6, 1999
Format:Audio CD
"Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet" is Rick Springfield at his best! This album, the follow up to his mega-selling "Working Class Dog" features some of Rick's best work to date. Songs like the albums hit single "Don't Talk To Strangers" as well as others such as "Just One Kiss", "What Kind of Fool Am I", "I Get Excited", and the should-have-been classic "Still Crazy For You" showcase Rick's ability not only as a talented singer, but as a songwriter in his own right. There is a song here entitled "How Do You Talk To Girls", I remeber hearing this song first by actor Scott Baio (Chiachi from Happy Days), but Rick's version is much more, well, 'listenable'. This album is definitely a must for anyone who loved this type of 80's pop, but should also take its place in any record collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical 1982 Album March 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Guess what is my #1 favorite? Not What Kind Of Fool Am I, nor Don't Talk To Strangers which became huge hits in the US.
I really like Kristina it really rocks!! But even Rick has not yet escaped the trend of 1982. Dance Pop yielded to hard rock. Rick has secured his positon between hard melodic pop rock bands (such as Styx, Boston, Journey and Survivor)and blues or country flavored rockers (such as John Cougar Mellemcamp, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Segar and The Silver Bullet Band).
The album is nearly as enjoyable as Working Class Dog.

4.0 out of 5 stars Success indeed January 10, 2000
By Leslie
Format:Audio CD
Although it's a little too similar to "Working Class Dog" at times (especially that opening bass line of "I Get Excited", so reminiscent of "Jessie's Girl") this album was a fine follow-up to its hugely successful predecessor. There's no resisting "Kristina" or "Calling All Girls", simplistic though their lyrics may be. "Black is Black" isn't bad, just unnecessary. Maybe Rick just always wanted to cover that song; the rest of the album more than makes up for this one indulgence. And all these years later, "Don't Talk to Strangers" virtually sparkles. This is a great companion to "Working Class Dog", and several outstanding album tracks make it a must-own beyond any greatest-hits package.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Guilty Pleasure August 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
While this is a classic Rick Springfield album, this is also the album that sealed Springfield's fate as a bubble gum pop star. Just a look at the track listings--"Calling All Girls," "How Do You Talk To Girls" and "The American Girl"--will tell you who this album was written for. Still, this is also the album that produced "I Get Excited," "Don't Talk To Strangers" and "Kristina," a song which has been given new life during Springfield's 1999 KARMA Tour. This is also the album that contains "April 24, 1981," a song Springfield wrote about the death of his father and the beginning of a theme that runs throughout the rest of his later work. Add this CD to your collection. At its worst, it's formulaic pop. At it's best, it's a guilty pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars As you listen- keep everything in his perspective: April 5, 1999
Format:Audio CD
"Glory is fleeting" and Springfield realizes this and that his fame is not to be something taken for granted, as illustrated by the title of this work. Now for as far as the quality of the songs-- on Success-Springfield has always amazed me because of the way he is able to consistently come up with new material (for the most part) and all original songs being written by him.
Given the time frame that this work came out in, and then riding the wave from Working Class Dog, this CD probably holds the most bittersweet memories for Springfield, And in closing with the anchor song of this CD being his April 24th 1981 and why, I feel, he did this work in the first place, The overall quantity of the songs on the CD as a whole is an unfair marker of his true talent, because I feel maybe the record industry, wanting to capitalize on his blockbuster success of his Working Class Dog album rushed him to produce songs for Success,before Rick was ready, and this is why I feel when people hear this album they may very unfairly peg him as a washed up teen idol who had a couple good hits from the 80's. but for those of us with patience, we realize that this work was just stratching the surface of Springfield's talent, (and if you want to give a comparison listen, Try and find Scott Baio's cover version singing Rick's "How Do You Talk to Girls" Then people will realize what is meant by a true teen idol- cute but absolutely no substance to the talent whatsoever.
( a phrase I think is truly unjust when referring to Springfield) How else do you explain the legions of fans of Springfield's waiting anxiously to hear the results of his newest- (and shortly to be released) work Karma. When's the last time anyone has waited for Leif Garrett, Shaun Cassidy etc. to wait to hear their poorly done versions of other people's songs? Springfield is-- and his music has always been a True Original. But I am a crazy fan of his. Oh well...

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece Album From Rick Springfield August 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is no doubt the best Rick Springfield's album todate.
The first track "Calling All Girls" gets your feet shaking. "I Get Excited" illustrates the real rock and roll. "What kind of fool am i" is the sentimental item which chills your heart. "American Girl" is a cute melody and "Still crazy for you" is romantic love song.
Last, but no least, the core of the album is "Don't Talk To Stranger".
P/s This is a very good CD to play while driving.
