This 1982 debut by this raw rocker from Canada was the perfect bridge between the British metal of Judas Priest and the American pop-metal of Bon Jovi, reaching the Top 10 and producing the hits Fantasy and Foolin' Yourself (here in its original form plus an unissued alternate version). A key metal album!

I played many of these tracks live in the 80's when I was in a cover-band in the Midwest.
I don't hear much in the way of compression problems...even on H-Fi equipment.
I hate brickwalling and over-compression as much as anyone else, but some nostalgic purists
refuse to keep an open mind. This improvement is much more than just "turning your volume knob clockwise" as the rallying cry of some purists would say.
At the time - we'd been fed a steady dose of excellent rock from the Great White North: April Wine, Rush, Harlequin, Triumph, Saga, Loverboy, Chilliwack ... Aldo Nova just seemed to be the rock-n-roll crown prince of the bunch. It seemed like the early 80's was the golden era of Canadian rock-n-roll and this album is easily one of the best from that time period.
