5.0 out of 5 stars KILLER hard POP (NOT METAL!!) February 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First off, this GREAT Canadian rocking pop band was screwed in the US due to record company discrepancies/distribution...if things fell in line properly here, these PEI guys woulda been HUGE in the US!!

Haywire's lineup pretty much never changed (only the drummer, before "Bad Boys" was released...original drummer Ron LeBlanc was replaced midsession in 1985/1986 and his drumtracks are on 3 songs intact on the debut disc): lead singer Paul MacAusland (honestly, to me, one of the GREATEST male rock/powerpop singers EVER, up there with the greats, as his voice is VERY melodic and pure, but powerful, rocking and gritty in all the right spots, with effortless soul + emotion, while being deceptively smooth...Glass Tiger's Alan Frew is in the same league, very few in the past 20 years have come close...I'm STILL amazed when I hear Paul sing!!), keyboard player Dave Rashed, guitarist Marvin Birt, Ronnie Switzer on bass, and drummer Sean Kilbride...

Anyhoo, I discovered them by accident back in 1988 while in Montreal, record shopping, buying Canadian releases not available in the US, on VINYL no less...and I bought their 2nd album, 1987's "Don't Just Stand There"...took getting used to, but once I "got it", I never wavered. Now, I have all 4 of their studio albums (and this hits collection) on CD...amazed they never went out of print!! I also have early stuff on tape and all their videos on VHS (will transfer em to DVD soon enough) put it mildly, Haywire were both OF their time (80s/90s), and strangely timeless.

Haywire were a unique powerpop/rock band who displayed a different sound on each of their 4 albums, while never wavering from their trademark "Haywire-ness"...

5.0 out of 5 stars These guys should've been bigger April 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I discovered Haywire while watching some videos in Youtube around 2005.. I was watching classic 80's hits like "Dance Desire", "Bad Boy", "Standing in line" and "Black & Blue"... Those were the only songs I knew from them until I decided to buy this "Best Of" CD. After a month of listening I must say these Canadians should've been bigger back in the day!..I was impressed with songs like "Thinking about the Years" & "Taken the Pain" (awesome ballads), "Operator Central" (cool heavy rocker), "Wanna be the one" (cool mix of rap and heavy rock" and my favorite "Buzz" (this is a sexy, cool, low tempo rocker that sets a chill atmosphere wherever I am). Overall I was a little skeptical about this band since I only knew 4 songs, but after buying this CD I was completely blown away by the rest of the songs, these guys deserved better... This CD is highly recommend for those who are new to the band

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like classic 1980s hard rock May 10, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Standing in Line" sounds reminiscent of some 1990s artists. Yes, a few songs on this album may be from the early 1990s.

This artist reminds me of Michael Bolton, Journey, Sammy Hagar, and Rick Springfield (all pioneers in their ways). Maybe a little like Van Stephenson (the first two albums I bought here on Amazon exactly two years ago [May, 2007] as of this review). It is not quite heavy metal, but solid, hard rock nonetheless.

Great album. One of the later songs sounds like Red Hot Chili Peppers! (Can you guess?)

I would recommend this album - nothing offensive or obscene to worry about.
