It Won't Be Long - Shout| Posted June 28, 2008
As an 80's and 90's fan of harder rock, I stumbled across this album at a Christian Book store, purely because of the Album Cover featuring the band members with plenty of HAIR!! Boy was I surprised. This album, to this day is still one of the best Glam Rock albums I have heard. Every song is a winner and at aged 36, I still go running, with this album blaring through my ipod. I even remember influencing many friends at school in 1989 who bought or made copies, such was its popularity.
The 1st track, Never Stop is a great song. Catchy tune, great guitar and I particularly enjoy this one when running - 7/10. Track 2, Winners and Losers has an awesome beat, a great chorus and terrific lyrics - 8.5/10. I love this song. Track 3 is one of my favourites of all time. The start features a classical, flamenco style guitar solo. The song then explodes into a much heavier rock song. This song really pumps you up - 9/10. Track 4, Find a Way is a typical Glam Rock/Heavy Metal Ballad of it's day. Another great song 8.5/10. Track 5, Dancin' Round the world is probably the weakest song on the album, but still quite catchy - 6.5/10. Track 6, Shout. The No.1 song on the album and in my top 5 fave songs of all time. This is just an absolute beauty. You can't help but sing and drum along. I've even cracked open the air guitar onn this one. Tracks 7, 8 & 9 are also good catchy tunes.
If you like glam rock from the 80's/90's or even just some good old fashioned Rock, then get this album. It's a keeper!!
